Blue Zone: Living a Long and Healthy Life in Costa Rica
Since the beginning of time man has been in search of the proverbial fountain of youth.

Top 10 Reasons We Love Living in Atenas, Costa Rica....
Amazing Climate- When we made our first visit to Costa Rica our idea was to explore the country and purchase a beach property. We had the good fortune of staying in the Atenas area for a few days before making our way to the beach. The spring like climate of Atenas and the Central Valley with day time temperatures in the low to mid 80’s and night time low’s in the mid 60’s changed all that and we were sold on Atenas. I must admit, I love my long, lazy beach weekends.
Getaways from Atenas: Enjoying all that Costa Rica has to offer.
Even though I live in a picturesque setting, perched high in the hills above Atenas, I still love to travel and enjoy every inch of the tropical paradise that I call home. Having 12 different micro climates, Costa Rica offers an abundance of travel options and a climate to fit everyones needs. During our summer I like to take mini “getaways” to refresh my “vista” and just relax.
Top Ten Reasons Why You Should Consider Retirement In Atenas, Costa Rica
- CLIMATE- More times than not, people choose Costa Rica, especially the Central Valley for it’s near perfect climate. Daytime temperatures reach the mid 80’s with cool mountain breezes and night time low’s in the mid 60’s. For those retirees coming from harsh winter climates in the Northeastern United States or Canada, Atenas offers a near perfect climate. Most importantly there is no snow to shovel.
Back in 2007 when my family and I moved to Costa Rica, one of big advantages we had heard about living in Costa Rica was the quality and affordability of health care. As faith would have it, our first week in Atenas, we would test the system (I will get to that story in just a few minutes) and to say the least it passed with flying colors.
