Playa Organos–The Next….

Big Thing……

Big things are coming to Bellevue and Playa Organos. People aske where is the “next big thing”? Right now home values are very reasonable and in fact down-right low priced. Exceptional Value fot your money.

The waterline is going in on the beach road. There are specialty shops and services, gourmet food, interior design, art and dance!!! Delivery services to your door. So right now things are in development and if you were to go to Santa Teresa or Nosara? You would find the same land/home for a value that is astronomical if you can find it. The inventory is low and the prices are inflated.

This inflation has not come to Playa Organos but rest assured in 5 years these prices will not be the same. ROI? Return On Investment?

Bellevue. Playa Organos. Ferry. Easy Access. Airport Nearby. Beaches. Isla Tortuga. Good Roads. Need we say more?

It’s another great day at Playa Organos. Thank you to the Turtle team, Carlos Solana. thank you Anna for being such a wonderful volunteer along with Eric, Constantine and the team! The turtles are absolutely thriving. They are released on a regular basis from the Bellevue group. It’s a great day at Playa Organos. Costa Rica! All about helping me environment🐢🎊🎉

What a beautiful volunteer, Anna helping the turtles!🎊🐢🎉

Playa Organos Turtles Thrive!

Recently we visited the site and Erik the head of volunteers was working with som local women in Paquera that started working onsite; He was along side Constentine from Majorca, Spain whom has stepped up and volunteered. Constantine and his family came all the way from Spain to build in Bellevue.

Constantine and Eric working hard…

The Turtle Project started by Carlos Solana has been a driving force for people coming together from all parts of the world. The community has stepped up and Bellevue brings in new partners.

Summer has started and the heat is on. This super sunny day was inspiring to see at least six volunteers and some from long distances enduring the sun and heat. Digging holes and enclosing the area so the nesting sites will not be disturbed.

Great to see women from the local community working so hard!

Erik explained that he has realeased with the team at least 650 turtles into the sea! Wow! Way to go Bellevue & Paquara along with global family members! Wooohooo! Yes to Thriving.

The sanctuary is being built bit by bit with great success.

Playa Organos Community Works To Keep La Playa Clean……

The beach is something the community at Bellevue values and greatly appreciates. We all go to the beach for recreation, serenity and keeping it clean can be a challenge especially during the winter months.

Local residents including Bellevue have been getting together on a regular basis to pick up the trash, gater wood and make the beach beautiful for all to enjoy.

Thank you to all that help!

Bellevue Is A “Blue Zone”

Thank You: Bluezones.com

Dan Buettner, Blue Zones founder, is a National Geographic Fellow and multiple New York Times bestselling author. He has discovered five places in the world ­– dubbed blue zones – where people live the longest, and are healthiest: Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece, and Loma Linda, California.

Identifying the Blue Zones

The concept of blue zones grew out of the demographic work done by Gianni Pes and Michel Poulain outlined in the Journal of Experimental Gerontology, identifying Sardinia as the region of the world with the highest concentration of male centenarians. Pes and Poulain drew concentric blue circles on the map highlighting these villages of extreme longevity and began to refer to this area inside the circle as the blue zone. Building on that demographic work, Dan pinpointed other longevity hotspots around the world and dubbed them blue zones.

Blue Zones Power 9: Lifestyle Habits of the World’s Healthiest, Longest-Lived People

1. Move Naturally

The world’s longest-lived people don’t pump iron, run marathons or join gyms. Instead, they live in environments that constantly nudge them into moving without thinking about it. They grow gardens and don’t have mechanical conveniences for house and yard work.

2. Purpose

The Okinawans call it “Ikigai” and the Nicoyans call it “plan de vida;” for both it translates to “why I wake up in the morning.” Knowing your sense of purpose is worth up to seven years of extra life expectancy

3. Down Shift

Even people in the Blue Zones experience stress. Stress leads to chronic inflammation, associated with every major age-related disease. What the world’s longest-lived people have that we don’t are routines to shed that stress. Okinawans take a few moments each day to remember their ancestors, Adventists pray, Ikarians take a nap and Sardinians do happy hour.

4. 80% Rule

“Hara hachi bu”  – the Okinawan, 2500-year old Confucian mantra said before meals reminds them to stop eating when their stomachs are 80 percent full. The 20% gap between not being hungry and feeling full could be the difference between losing weight or gaining it. People in the blue zones eat their smallest meal in the late afternoon or early evening and then they don’t eat any more the rest of the day.

5. Plant Slant

Beans, including fava, black, soy and lentils, are the cornerstone of most centenarian diets. Meat—mostly pork—is eaten on average only five times per month.  Serving sizes are 3-4 oz., about the size of a deck of cards.

6. Wine @ 5

People in all blue zones (except Adventists) drink alcohol moderately and regularly.  Moderate drinkers outlive non-drinkers. The trick is to drink 1-2 glasses per day (preferably Sardinian Cannonau wine), with friends and/or with food. And no, you can’t save up all week and have 14 drinks on Saturday.

7. Belong

All but five of the 263 centenarians we interviewed belonged to some faith-based community.  Denomination doesn’t seem to matter. Research shows that attending faith-based services four times per month will add 4-14 years of life expectancy.

8. Loved Ones First

Successful centenarians in the blue zones put their families first. This means keeping aging parents and grandparents nearby or in the home (It lowers disease and mortality rates of children in the home too.). They commit to a life partner (which can add up to 3 years of life expectancy) and invest in their children with time and love (They’ll be more likely to care for you when the time comes).

9. Right Tribe

The world’s longest lived people chose–or were born into–social circles that supported healthy behaviors, Okinawans created ”moais”–groups of five friends that committed to each other for life. Research from the Framingham Studies shows that smoking, obesity, happiness, and even loneliness are contagious. So the social networks of long-lived people have favorably shaped their health behaviors.

To make it to age 100, you have to have won the genetic lottery. But most of us have the capacity to make it well into our early 90’s and largely without chronic disease. As the Adventists demonstrate, the average person’s life expectancy could increase by 10-12 years by adopting a Blue Zones lifestyle.
