Villas del Puente Power Point

  1. 1. The bridge from nature to luxury lifestyle<br />
  2. 2. Discovering this idyllic place, we find ourselves filled with a yearning to linger here, where time stands still and beauty overwhelms.<br />
  3. 3. Why Villas Del Puente?<br />Realizing the true essence of the opportunity at Villas del Puente requires some insight into Costa Rica as a destination, Manuel Antonio as its most sought after destination and Villas del Puente as a uniquely placed offering in what is arguably Central America’s most attractive destination.<br />With only 48 select units, the Ecologica team wants members of the Villas del Puente community who share our passion for Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio and the project.<br />
  4. 4. Why Costa Rica?<br />Costa Rica is an idyllic paradise which offers a magical and unique combination of characteristics which make it unlike any other place on earth. These are just a few of the main reasons why Costa Rica has become one of the world’s most sought after destinations.<br />- Stunning Natural Beauty hosting nearly 6% of the world’s biodiversity.<br />- A Peace loving populace and stable government.<br />- Affordable health care and high quality of life.<br />- A strong economy and highly educated work force.<br />- Growing hub for international business.<br />- Unique location which is exotic, safe and accessible.<br />
  5. 5. Costa Rica’s natural beauty and wildlife<br />It covers 0.03% of the planet’s surface and has the privilege to be habitat of 6% of the world biodiversity.<br />25.6% of its territory is protected under different conservation methods.<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. Stable government, peaceful and educated populace <br />Unlike many other tropical destinations, Costa Rica has a tremendously stable government and economy allowing investors to enjoy the spectacular beauty without sacrificing security and stability.<br />Costa Rica has enjoyed a Democratic Republic Government for 100 years and in 1949 chose to abolish their military opting to use those funds to provide health care and education to all of its citizens. Costa Rica is known as the “Switzerland of the Americas.”<br />Health care is provided for everyone. <br />The education system of Costa Rica is ranked 40th in the world.<br />Costa Rica has one of the highest literacy rates in the American Continent (95.8%)<br />The World Bank Development Indicators recently rated Costa Rica among the top two countries in all of Central and South America in terms of Political Stability.<br />Costa Rica, rising education levels also fostered impressive gender equality so that it ranks higher than the United States in the World Economic Forum gender gap index.<br />
  8. 8.
  9. 9. Quality of Life and Healthcare <br />Universal health care is provided for all residents in Costa Rica and there are also fantastic and very affordable private hospitals.<br />Costa Rica has been rated the Happiest Place to live in the entire world by the WHI and HPI.<br />The World Health Organization ranked Costa Rica's health system as one of <br /> the top three Latin America countries, ranked even higher than United States and New Zealand. <br />4. The World Bank ranked Costa Rica to have the highest life expectancy, at 78.7 <br /> years, among all countries in Latin America. This is equivalent to the level in Canada and higher than the United States by a year. <br />The Environmental Performance Index, a collaboration of Yale and Columbia Universities, ranks Costa Rica at No. 3 in the world, the best outside Europe.<br />According to Promed (the Council for the Promotion of Medicine in Costa Rica), there were approximately 22,000 US citizens who visited Costa Rica in 2008 for medical procedures, mostly baby boomers or people aged over 50 who are seeking quality medical services including dental, surgical and other medical packages at very affordable rates. <br />Costa Rica is home to one of only 5 recognized blue zones on the planet. (Blue zones are areas where life expectancy surpases 100 years on average!)<br />
  10. 10. Private hospitals in Costa Rica<br />There are currently three JCI-accredited hospitals in Costa Rica and all are located in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. <br />Hospital CIMA - San Jose, Costa RicaAccredited by the JCI on May 2008. CIMA is also certified by the ISO and was the first hospital that was certified for Quality Processes by the Ministry of Health in Costa Rica.<br />Hospital Clinica Biblica - San Jose, Costa RicaAccredited by the JCI on October 2007. It was built in 1929 by American missionaries and has grown into a high-quality medical facility with a capacity of 120 inpatients and 5000 outpatients per day. They have a dedicated Medical Tourism department with English and Spanish fluent staff and employees. <br />Hospital La Catolica - San Jose, Costa RicaAccredited by the JCI on June 2009. The hospital recently built new infrastructures on top of its newly remodeled facilities which boast of its own high class hotel, the La Posada El Convento, located within the confines of the medical facilities.<br />
  11. 11. Cost of Medical Treatment in Costa Rica<br />
  12. 12. Much more than just a hot tourism destination <br />Costa Rica has positioned itself as a key destination for operations of multinational companies in a variety of industries, such as Advanced Manufacturing, Medical Devices and Services. <br />Over 200 global companies have chosen Costa Rica as an establishment location.<br />Costa Rica is the 4th high-tech exporter in the world (World Development Indicators 2008, World Bank) <br />One of the most competitive destinations in Latin America for service operations (A.T. Kearney, Destination Latin America: A Near-Shore Alternative 2009) <br />FDI per capita = $448. Costa Rica is one of the most competitive locations, above Latin America’s largest economies like Brazil, Mexico and Chile<br />Costa Rica’s per capita GDP per capita is almost 7 times higher than China’s <br />No Capital Gains Taxes<br />Companies like Intel, HP, Boston Scientific, Amway, Proctor and Gamble , Oracle, Amazon, and Arcus are just a few of the multinational firms with large production and/or customer service platforms based out of Costa Rica.<br />

Home Owners Association Management<br />One Bedroom: $349 per month<br />Two Bedroom: $525 per month<br />The easiest way to understand the concept of condominium ownership and responsibility is to see it as an apartment that is owned. Ownership extends inward from your interior walls, floors and ceilings. In addition unit owners are partners with all the other owners in the association regarding the exterior structure (the foundation, exterior walls and roof) as well as any common areas and amenities (for example, swimming pools, clubhouse, gas grills, security gates and personnel, etc.)<br />How do you know what the owner maintains and what the association maintains? In general, the association will take care of all of the exterior upkeep of the buildings and grounds. This can vary somewhat from association to association, so it is important for a condominium buyer to have a clear idea of exactly what will (or will not) be covered.<br />Includes: dues assessment and collection, accounting, audit, legal, insurance, air conditioning maintenance, elevator maintenance, general maintenance and repairs, gutters and downspout maintenance, gym maintenance and equipment replacement, irrigation maintenance, janitorial, landscape services, street maintenance, pest control, painting, lighting, pool and Jacuzzi maintenance and repairs, fire detection and suppression equipment maintenance, refuse disposal and recycling, security, satellite/cable TV, electricity, sewage treatment, telephone, Internet service, HOA annual meeting and more.<br />maintenance, janitorial, landscape services, street maintenance, pest control, painting, lighting, pool and Jacuzzi maintenance and repairs, fire detection and suppression equipment maintenance, refuse disposal and recycling, security, satellite/cable TV, electricity, sewage treatment, telephone, Internet service, HOA annual meeting and more.<br />
