She’s financed her stay here by maintaining a graphic design business online, but also satisfied her never-ending curiosity by trying on different hats, from full time traveler to writer to editor-in-chief of a newspaper to part-time English teacher.

Finally, Lisle Head from Daystar Properties stops in for a chat about the new Del Rey hotel opening in Jacó.  What are the consequence and benefits of having a sister to the legendary hotel and casino on the beach?  Tune in to find out!
