The Guanacaste Guide to Business and Real Estate

Join a growing online business community in Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Hello, I’m Rodgers Bestgen and I built the Guanacaste guide. I live in La Garita Vieja de Matapalo outside Playa Grande and Tamarindo on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. I drove here from Boston with  my faithful Weimaraner Seikan and a jeep Cherokee full of computer equipment 18 years ago. I opened an internet cafe then worked as the technical director for the Country Day School in Brasilito, now as an internet marketing consultant to the CR government. I created this business directory and journal about  life on the “Gold Coast”   while I was quarantined in Sarasota thanks to Covid. It is  a small business toolkit for Guanacaste  business.This amazing destination  warrants pride of place. Please, enjoy this visually and ecologically stunning destination.
