All of our team has traveled the world extensively and we agree that Costa Rica is a magical place like no other.

Founder of The Longstreet Group, David is a part time resident of Jaco, Costa Rica. After wintering in Jaco for the first time in 2014 he knew this is where he belonged. A world traveler, entrepreneur and adventurer David hates sitting still, but one place that can keep his feet planted is Jaco and Costa Rica.

Design is in Kristin’s blood. Everything she does it turns out beautiful. A graduate of the Graphic design program at Georgian Collage in Canada, this book wouldn’t have come to fruition with out Kristin’s work. An avid traveler Kristin has been coming to Jaco since 2014 and now is a part time resident.
