Ed and Larry have known each other since the early 80’s. Both are retired from the construction industry. Ed lives full time in Costa Rica, and looks after the apartments, while Larry lives in San Diego. Larry makes at least three extended visits to Costa Rica a year. They began to take joint vacations in Costa Rica around 2000. They enjoyed this country so much, that when these apartments became available, Larry jumped at the chance, and purchased them. They now are able to spend more time enjoying the country and are able to offer low cost apartments to others who wish to do the same.
