Arenal Report

November 17, 2011

The popular Cañas ranchera musician known as Danny apparently has taken “Ranchero” as his professional name, and is heading tomorrow evening from the hot lowlands to the cool mountains to perform at Longhorn Bar and Grill. Longhorn is about three miles from Tilarán at the Cinco Esquinas intersection of the north and south lake highways. The music starts at 6 p.m. Admission is ₡2,000 ($4) and includes two beers or other drinks.

Traveling a greater distance in search not of music but of additional Gringo residents to appreciate the local music, Laura Murray and three other members of the Costa Rica Global Association of Realtors (CRGAR) and Arenal Lake Partners traveled last week to the National Association of Realtors three-day convention in Anaheim, California, where they set up a booth enticing enough, they hoped, to cause a further population influx at the lake and beaches and other beauty spots of Costa Rica. Apparently, many realtors from all over the U.S. and Canada have clients who are trying to sell out and move somewhere south. The delegation also invited their northern brethren to attend CRGAR’s Certified International Property Specialist institute in Tamarindo Jan. 9-14. Participants have to prove they have already done international transactions. Reservations can be made via email at CIPSCostaRica2012@crgar.com
