The sleepy little Pacific Coast beach town of Dominical in Costa Rica is known for some of the best surfing in the world. This development plans to retain this small-town ambiance, add a strongly sustainable ‘green’ infrastructure, and give the resulting development a taste of the uniquely local ‘barefoot elegance’ which the Costa Rican ‘Tico’ culture personifies. With playful art and architecture that comes to life during the rainy season, tree house dwellings, and sustainably designed homes, this is a village community that welcomes guests and residents into the living experience of a widely diverse beach-side community.
