For the past 5 years we have been looking for an opportunity to permanently move to Central America and either buy or manage a boutique hotel. We have travelled extensively to Panama, Grenada, Aruba, Costa Rica, and Honduras to find the perfect “fit” for us.
So here’s a little bit about us.
We are a professional married couple – John and Anel – and we currently live in a suburb of Dallas, Texas.
John is a Medical Equipment Installation Engineer/Project Manager and has recently finished a few projects for MRI/Radiation treatment systems in South Korea, Amsterdam, California, Missouri, Wisconsin and Miami, Florida. He has also owned a remodeling company and is a “fix it” and construction expert. He is a diver and is an experienced ASA-certified sailor, as well as photographer.
Anel is a graphic artist/cartoonist/ developer. We own a small /marketing company called Results 2 Profit, LLC. With R2P we work with hobby clubs and small businesses on their s and marketing needs. She previously was the marketing/creative director for Golds Gym corporate and Marketing Director for an IT CRM company called Professional Edge. She has also been an event planner for a large municipality and has worked extensively with the hotel/motel industry.
Both of us work hard and take a lot of pride in jobs done well. We also both have management experience, the gift of “hospitality” when it comes to dealing with customers, and, we know how to facilitate a good time for travelers. More importantly, we are used to working together 24/7 with our Results 2 Profit business. Actually, we do our best work when we’re working together.
On top of all this, we LOVE Central America! When we travel, we have always preferred the remote, quaint settings rather than large resorts. Getting dirty, walking or biking for supplies and getting to know the locals is our idea of a great life and a great time.
We are currently in the process of selling our business, John has finished his medical projects, and we’re ready for the “what’s next” part of our lives. We’re anxious to make the big move south this year.
