As many of you may know, October tends to be one of the slower months here in Costa Rica. In Guanacaste we see our only true rainy month of the year which gives people time to take a break from the hard life of spending time at the beaches or playing 18 holes when ever we feel like it. Even with the rain falling there where a couple of big pieces of news to develop over the last month and several of them are happening right here in Guanacaste.

So far the project has been very well received by the Municipal Council and if things continue at the same pace we couple be looking at a ground breaking ceremony with in the next 2 years.
