  1. Taller Hernandez, Calle Chimba, 2 kms. West of the red cross. Randall Hernandez, 2203-2180
  2. Consider the source! Special Free Bonus....maybe he'll write a book about Panama someday.
  3. Great photos....still looking at them. Hope to make the trip someday.
  4. Keep your eyes open on October 3rd. I can't wait for Oct. 3rd and the plan.... Edgar Ayales, Minister of Hacienda, “Fiscal Consolidation Plan” that will undoubtedly raise taxes. The writing is on the wall. Mr. Ayales replaced the last minister who had to resign for under-reporting the values of all of his properties. Finance Minister Fernando Herrero and the director of Taxation, Francisco Villalobos, resigned last year- both for tax evasion. Does any one know what the govt. has done with the money it has collected from the "luxury tax" on properties? Is it less expensive to live in Panama? ie., apples to apples and oranges to oranges. Does Panama have a friendlier business (small & large) environment?
  5. Just got back from the store, bought some other defensive implements that should prevent having a denuncia filed against me by the criminals: 3 aerosol cans of Ready Whip Cream.
  6. Wasp Spray - A friend who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead. The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn't attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. Thought this was interesting and might be of use. Question: has anyone seen 'wasp spray' for sale in Costa Rica? Could someone bring it down in their suitcase?
  7. Boatlift on 9/11...Unbelievable Narrated by Tom Hanks We certainly were busy watching the news right after 9/11, but never saw this......BOATLIFT OF 9/11. You know, in the 12 years since this happened, this is the first time I've ever seen this...I don't even remember seeing/hearing about this evacuation on the news! And the fact it was all done in 9 hours...500,000 people! This is a video well worth watching. The guy at the end (same guy who is at the beginning) has some great words to live by for all of us. Watch till the end, you won't regret it. Click here: BOATLIFT, An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience - YouTube
  8. Thanks. How does one send a PM?
  9. TO ALL of those who purchased lots in Cielo Gardens on the Pacific coast. Some owners would like to contact other owners about the situation. If you are interested in communication with other owners, pls. post your email here.
  10. Fernan Pacheco at Facio & Canas law firm is excellent. You can look for an honest agent at the Costa Rican Chamber of RE brokers site; http://www.mls-cr.com/ www.avaloncostaricasales.com
  11. If you have any information about this company, http://macawdevelopmentgroup.com/index.html, we would appreciate hearing from you. A friend of mine in Vermont was contacted by one of their salesmen so we are doing some 'due diligence.'
  12. I currently live in Santa Ana but still own a house in Mercedes Norte in Heredia. I lived there for 6 years but I don't like the weather there, too cold and rainy for me. I much prefer the Valle del Sol in Santa Ana. Then there's the traffic problem...CONGESTION. Morning and evening rush hours are impossible. Getting to San Jose is a nightmare. Costa Rica has many micro-climates, you need to determine what climate is best for you. www.avalar.co.cr
  13. Paco, Some people I know used Mundanzas Mundiales to ship their household goods back to Wisconsin from Sto. Domingo. It took longer than expected but everything arrived in good condition. Personally, I would have a yard sale.
