Playa Ventanas History

The beach that we all know and enjoy, actually had the 'help' of two very ambitious and adventurous people. One a Gringo from Minnesota, USA, and one from Palmar Norte, Costa Rica. Jerry (Gringo) purchased the land back in 1972, and along with his Tico brother-in-law Herman, proceeded to build a home on the beach and plant over 300 coconut trees.

Keep in mind, that in 1972 there was no Costanera Highway (that was still 30 years from being built).

Jerry and Herman sold the beach in 1995 to a man from Germany, who bequeathed it to his sister upon his death, which is who owns it today.
