Hot Property in Atenas Costa Rica

Property is hot in Atenas Costa Rica – literally on fire.

It’s the dry season – very dry season, came on early and is staying late. Temperatures are higher than normal. Winds are higher than usual. This is the driest season in a long time. Scientists are referring to this year as a Double El Nino.

Thanks El Nino! Thanks El Nino! (double thank you.)

Fires are not uncommon because much of the land around Atenas is set aside as Nature Preserves. Once a fire gets started there are no barriers to fires spreading at will. Firefighters can’t or won’t fight the fires on the hills or in the preserve. Luckily they have stayed far away from us. We can smell the smoke if the wind is strong and in our direction. No houses have been damaged.

  1. I certainly enjoy reading your posts Mark. Keep two exit routes in mind if
    you have to scoot quickly due to fire or smoke.

  2. Hot hot hot…. Is this the hottest year on record?
    Just moved to Orotina from the US and looking for other expats in the area.
    Any suggestions?

    • Hi, welcome to the neighborhood. Don’t know about records, but a lot of people are complaining!
      To meet expats you have to be outgoing. When you hear English, try to engage and get contact info. An invitation to visit your home – or a meal out might help. Ask them to bring other couples to meet.
