Then & NOw
Since our very first Surf Trip trip to Costa Rica in 2004, we fell in love with not only the waves but the scenic beauty and tranquility of Costa Rica. We loved our vacation so much, we decided to build our own vacation home there. One home was just not enough, so we built three more! Now all of our family and friends can enjoy the beauties of all of our Costa Rica Vacation Homes. We extend that welcome to you, our new Costa Rica friends!
