The unusual thing about Flamingo is there are no flamingos there. The town was named by George Howarth, a Canadian investor who discovered and bought 250 acres in the area in the 1960s. Rumour has it that he thought the roseate spoonbill was a flamingo that doesn’t exist in Costa Rica. Howarth was a controversial character in the area and after trying to enforce an elite enclave subject to his rules, he sold the huge tract of land for $1.1 million. The land changed hands a few times and in 1983 a marina was built by Ray Osborne who died in 1993. James McKee purchased the marina and ran it from 1989 until 2003 when the government canceled the concession. It became a base for the Coast Guard for several years, after which they built their own facility adjacent to the marina. However, now a new group is breathing life into the marina and it should be fully operational by 2022.

The marina project, “Marina Flamingo” is a great draw to the area with 184 slips and a village, VIP Club, restaurants, and shops all complimented by Fiber Optic Internet Connectivity and Fastest & Most Reliable Internet in Costa Rica engineered by iTellum. The construction of the marina and the future 44 condominiums and hotel are being closely monitored for safety and environmental concerns. The reason for this is two-fold; one is to minimize environmental impact and the other is to ensure completion which was stopped in the past. The marina project will have a positive economic impact on the immediate area and Guanacaste as a whole. Unlike the Papagayo Marina, which has only mega-resorts, Flamingo has natural shelter and a town with local infrastructure. Successful marinas have populated areas with commerce that attracts a wide array of visitors. An example is the Los Suenos Marina in the Central Pacific which is world-renowned and hugely successful. They can enjoy the local culture and keep connected with the Best Satellite Broadband Possible via Costa Rica’s only High-Speed Satellite Internet.

The unique terrain supports some very picturesque views and some extremely challenging building sites. However, the North Ridge, a lush steep peninsula about 1 kilometer long, has deluxe homes and condominiums in addition to the 360 Splendor del Pacifico condominium complex at the top of the mountain. All take advantage of the Reliable Satellite Internet and Broadband and Commercial Grade Internet available.

The actual town of Flamingo sits at the base of the ridge and is only 400 meters wide due to geographical constraints. That equates to four blocks between Flamingo Beach and Potrero Beach. You can walk from the marina to Flamingo beach in 5 minutes and enjoy the Flamingo Beach hotel which became Margaritaville in 2018 and the largest hotel in town. High-end destinations such as the Marina Flamingo, 360 Splendor del Pacifico, and Margaritaville attract even more discerning enterprises that understand the value of iTellum’s “Internet Concierge”. These are businesses that appreciate the service that is advertised is actually the service that is delivered and that in itself has value and is worth paying for. Managing their expectations on time and providing comprehensive services are appreciated more by these businesses than paying the lowest prices.

As you leave Margaritaville, the road is bordered on the left with mangroves. The beauty of this area is that the mangroves are protected by law, and therefore no construction is allowed. This makes for a lovely shaded beach area with calm surf perfect for families with small children. Even if you venture beyond Flamingo into areas less populated, you have the advantage of Rural Satellite Internet should you need it.

The portion of town along the main highway has commercial entities, such as Banco de Costa Rica, a Banco Nacional, the excellent Super Massai grocery store, the big Comaco hardware store, a few real estate agencies, a bilingual school, and several other small enterprises including small hotels. As this area grows, the need for Internet for Hotels, Call-Centers, and businesses medium and large will be a necessity to keep up with the demand.

Geographically the surrounding area is dotted with lagoons and small uninhabited islands that make for excellent scuba diving. Dive centers in town have scuba diving offerings to the Santa Catalina Islands, only five miles offshore, where whale and hammerhead sharks, manta rays, whalesharks, turtles, and other big fish can be seen. A long-time venue for sport fishing tournaments, Flamingo traditionally hosts the Costa Rican Amateur Fisherman’s Club’s annual international Sailfish tournament. A returning competition is the Presidential Flamingo Fishing Rodeo to be held in August.

Although water plays a big part in the activities here, there are two golf courses Located within 30-40 minutes of Flamingo. Tee-off times can be booked easily online through Secure and Fast Satellite Services. Gara de Leon Golf Course is a most picturesque course with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean bordered by native forests. Designed by Robert Trent Jones II., holes 14 and 15 are right on the ocean and the 15th hole is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Central America. Another course close by and also designed by Robert Trent Jones II is the Reserva Conchal Golf Club is a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, an Audubon International program. It is one of 3 courses in Costa Rica and 905 courses in the world to hold the honor.

The area is only about an hours drive (27 miles) from the city of Liberia, the international airport, hospitals, “big box” stores, and shopping malls. This makes it a great place to retire, start a family, a second home or vacation destination, or transplant an online business using Internet via 1:1 International Fiber Optics.
