Palmar Sur Airport Update

Palmar Sur Airport Update

In August 28, 2018, we visited Palmar Sur regional airport to get an update on the construction project there. The following is our Palmar Sur Airport Update.

In early August 2018, we had a client who had a scheduled flight from San Jose to Palmar Sur, via Sansa airlines. They were planning on a weeklong vacation at Casa Lapas. Approximately 24 hours prior to the clients' departure, they were notified that the Palmar Sur airport was close and no other information was available. After scrambling to get the clients rescheduled to Perez Zeledon's regional airport, we decided to investigate what was going on.

Below are a couple of videos that provide how the Palmar Sur Airport Update will improve traveling to the southern pacific zone of Costa Rica in the not-to-distant future.

Here is a list of the changes taking place at Palmar Sur airport. All of these changes are scheduled to be completed in four months - with a goal of being completed by January 2019.

  • Existing terminal is going to be increased in size from 750 square feet to over 5,000 square feet. It is still unclear whether or not the existing terminal structure will be kept or if it will be torn down.
  • Rental car kiosks and other kiosks will be built
  • The width of the runway is being widened

One of the goals of the increased width of the runway is to allow more models of aircrafts to be able to make emergency landings if necessary. Palmar Sur is relatively safe compared to other airports in the area due to the flat topography and ease of landing for planes coming in from the west/Pacific Ocean side.

GoPro Walking Through Cave at Playa Ventanas

Tags : 

Playa Ventanas is one of the best all-around beaches in all of Costa Rica, and it is my personal favorite. A couple of years ago I strapped a GoPro camera on my head and recorded my journey from the front of one of the caves, all the way through, and out on the other side. Enjoy the GoPro Playa Ventanas video below!

CAUTION: DO NOT TRY THIS! IT IS VERY DANGEROUS! I made the video so it is not necessary for you, your guests or friends, to do it themselves.

The caves at Playa Ventanas are the inspiration for the name of the beach itself. 'Ventanas' means 'window' in Spanish. Therefore, these are not caves, these are 'windows' of the beach.

The windows (or caves) at Playa Ventanas are equally beautiful and fascinating. As the tide rises, and more water is forced into the holes of the caves, the louder the WHOOSH!! BANG!! gets, caused by the accelerating water. The best time to visit Playa Ventanas is NOW! Regardless if it is during low tide or during high tide. As you can see from the GoPro Playa Ventanas video, during low tide, it is easy to enter and explore the caves/windows.

Costa Rica Property Management YouTube Channel

Osa Property Management is happy to announce that we recently launched our YouTube channel. We are busy building up our video library and will be soon adding new videos every couple of weeks.

According to Nick Halverson, Osa Property Management's CEO, "We want to not only use beautiful photos and great written youtube logo newdescriptions of the Osa region on our website and other marketing materials, but we also want to show visitors and locals alike, the amazing resources, homes and activities, beaches and restaurants, in and around San Isidro del General, Dominical, Uvita, Ojochal, San Buenas and Palmar Norte. By no means are we professional videoographers, but our simple and raw videos will show what it is really like to live here in Costa Rica. We can't wait to build up our library of videos!"

In addition, Abigail Vargas added, "In today's world of seemingly decreasing attention spans, we will be providing videos with three minutes at most. The only time we plan on showing a longer video is if it involves an interview - of which we have several great interviews planned and scheduled."

With that in mind, the first video put together is less than 40 seconds long and gives a brief overview of the Costa Rica Property Management services provided by Osa Property Management. See below to see our Costa Rica Property Management YouTube Channel and our first video.
