What does EcoVida mean?
"Eco" from ecology/ecological and "Vida" from the Spanish word for life, combined to represent the balance between our environment and our health & wellness, both mental and physical. We believe in living sustainably and providing vacation and investment opportunities for anyone looking to take in all that Costa Rica has to offer, but doing so from an ecologically-minded perspective. This does not mean living in the jungle without electricity or running water -- it is a balance of combining creature comforts with methods that encourage reducing wasteful consumption, reusing when possible and recycling everything we can in unique and productive ways. We are always on the lookout to assist and promote other viable eco-friendly real estate.
Who owns EcoVida Real Estate?
Technically, EcoVida Properties & Real Estate is owned by EcoVida Holdings which has many ventures within Costa Rica. In the practical sense, EcoVida Properties and Real Estate is owned and operated by Shannon Playfair with the help of her husband when needed. Shannon and her husband are residents of Costa Rica while still active in their home country of Canada and set up this company out of the EcoVida Holdings umbrella in order to help neighbors with their investments in Costa Rica, provide full-time jobs to locals, and create an active operation that could interact with and support the local community through charitable projects such as the Bejuco School Project.
