Marilyn, our fearless leader and Founding Broker, even at the age of 94 she drives herself to the office to offer help and advise which we all look forward to.

Marilyn visited Costa Rica for the first time in 1966 while participating in the Good Will Tour of the Business and Professional Women's Club of Marathon, Florida.  She fell in love with the country and its people and the following year she, along with her husband Earl and four children packed up the family travel trailer and drove from Marathon, Florida to Costa Rica.  After a few subsequent visits the family finca in Los Angeles de Heredia was purchased and became the vacation retreat until 1982 when Marilyn and her beloved husband Earl, now deceased, moved to Costa Rica full time. 
She and her daughter, Ginger, opened Carico Real Estate of Costa Rica in 1982 as a branch of their Florida Keys real estate brokerage firm, American Caribbean Real Estate Fl Keys.

We have made Costa Rica the "Home Of Our Heart" for the past twenty-five years.

As guests of this country, then landowners, and finally as owners of Costa Rica's premier real estate office, we have seen Costa Rica gradually being discovered by the rest of the world.

We would like to share our special knowledge and appreciation of this unique country, with visitors who feel as we do...that Costa Rica is a wonderful place to visit and to live.

The investment climate in Costa Rica is very positive. The economy is strong and growing. There are virtually no restrictions governing foreign investment and the nation's infrastructure is well developed. Most importantly, the political environment is very stable.  In 1989, Costa Rica celebrated its 100th year of democratic rule.

Real estate taxes and the overall cost of living are very low by US standards.  Year after year, costa rica rates in the top 10 Best Retirement Counties in the world.

National Geographic calls it the country with the most ideal climate in the world.
