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.
