One of the many advantages of this special property to you as a purchaser is that it will come, if you wish, with your own experienced, reliable, and highly qualified staff. And wages in our rural community have not kept pace with the more metropolitan, touristy areas or beach towns. From field hands, to household staff, to overseer, builders and carpenters, you can afford to create the life you want and manifest your visions. While minimum wage in Costa Rica is $18 per day, we recommend from $3-$5 an hour depending on the job and skill level.
Though basic care of the horses may be handled by a field hand, we have had the privilege of employing a well-known horse-trainer, Jose Ramon, with basic veterinary skills on a part-time basis.
Our wonderful gardener, Miguel, lives just across the street and has worked on this property for 40 years, and thus is intimately acquainted with every aspect of it. He is now semi-retired and works just 1-2 hours a day caring for the yard and plants around the house. However he is readily on call for help with with animals, water systems, or anything else you might need.
Miguel’s wife, Daisy, also semi-retired, keeps an eye on the house and is available for scheduled cleaning tasks.. She is also a wonderful cook, seamstress, skilled crafts-person, and well-respected member of the community who is one of the officers at our women’s micro-finanacing organization.
