Why Joe Pignatelli chose San Ramon
After looking at Florida, Mexico, and the Domenican Republic, we felt that Costa Rica had so much more to offer. The country is so beautiful, and very easy to travel through. There are many micro climates to suit individual needs and an abundance of things to do. In 1949 the country abolished their army and invested all their money into education and health care, therefore they have a well educated and happy population. Recent surveys show that Costa Ricans are one of the happiest people in the world. Costa Rica has a very low crime rate compared to other countries in Central & South America. They also have a longer life expectancy because of the lifestyle they live - Pura Vida!
What makes this house unique
Our house is just 5 minutes from San Ramon, which is approximately 35 minutes west of the San Jose Airport, and is very central to everything. San Ramon has a hospital, university, shopping, churchs, movie theatres, and best of all, the weather is fabulous! Because San Ramon is 3500 ft. above sea level, the average daytime temperature all year round is 25 celcius, or 78 farenheit. Evenings are usually a little bit cooler, but very pleasant. There is no need to have air conditioning or heating in our home. If you are interested in some more heat, just drive 40 minutes west to the beach where the temperatures can reach 35 celcius plus. Our location is central to as many activities and attractions you can imagine. Poas Volcano, La Paz Waterfall & Gardens, La Fortuna & Lake Arenal, San Luis Zip-Lining, Carera National Rainforest, Sarchi, Tortuga Island, and San Jose are all a reasonable drive away.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Joe and Liz's piece of Paradise is more than you could ever imagine. My family had the opportunity to stay at their place during the last part of February 2012 and it was fabulous. This was our second trip to Costa Rica and by far this was our best experience so far. Their beautiful home is so close to the airport in San Jose which makes this home even better, and the roads getting their are wonderful. It is literally central to everything in this amazing country. Within a short drive you can be swimming in the pacific ocean, hiking through the rain forest, checking out Volcanoes or enjoying an afternoon in one of local towns shopping. The house is situated in a beautiful gated community which provided us a great sense of security. We loved cooking here, being able to go into town and buy local food and cook our meals was a great experience, and enjoying and evening dinner on the terrace overlooking the valleys and the Pacific Ocean off in the distance is a priceless experience. Such a great place to stay!!
