Visionary Jason McNair and his wife Lucrecia Montoya felt that when they purchased a property, it could be turned into a beautiful gated community. What was just a farm, consisted of just a hillside and some grazing area. Today, it has a name: Condominio Valle Escondido in Santa Ana,
A resident of Condominio Valle Escondido mentioned to me the other day that “life is not only about golf courses”. He also said, “I purchased a lot and built my luxury home in Valle Escondido for the nature setting, the amazing location, and the great investment for the future”.
Jason, who I first met in 1982 in the Peninsula de Osa, had the necessary knowledge of Costa Rica real estate, as well as full control of the Spanish language and the Tico habits to create a beautiful master-planned community and turn what was just grazing grounds into a lush forest.

It took Jason quite a few years, for permitting in Costa Rica took a while at the time. In October 2002, he was finally able to subdivide 44,286 m2 (11 acres) of property into 26 home sites.
This beautiful community is located in Pozos de Santa Ana. It is only a stone throw away from highway 27. This allows residents of Condominio Valle Escondido incredible access to Escazu and San Jose to the east and Santa Ana and the Central Pacific coast to the west.

The condominium is protected by the Alto de las Palomas hill on the east side. Which gives most properties in the community panoramic sunset views in the west. Others have views of the Santa Ana mountain range and the Valle del Sol. Valle del Sol is the name of the Santa Ana valley. At this time, there are still some home sites available.
Immediately after purchasing what was then a farm, Jason started to plant trees in the community. Also, he carefully traced what was going to be the road throughout the condominium. The roads were designed in pavers, very unusual in any community in the Central Valley and all utilities were built underground. So the power lines would not interfere with the views of each homeowner. All gutters are built in natural stone.
The developer had left 14,000 m2 (3.5 acres) on purpose for the common area of the master-planned community. Although at the time no zoning plan obliged him to do so. This was the deciding factor for many nature lovers to become residents of Valle Escondido. Just by taking a drive through the community, you will be able to enjoy the nature ambiance of the residents of luxury homes do.
Although Condominio Valle Escondido does not have its own golf course. Those who love the game of golf, only need to drive 5 minutes to get to the Parque Valle del Sol golf course in Santa Ana. For those who would like to be a member of a country club, the Escazu Country club is 15 minutes away. Also, Hacienda Los Reyes 20 minutes away and the Cariari country club 25 minutes. All three clubs have a golf course.
The new Santa Ana country club will be soon under construction right next door! The Santa Ana country club will offer:
- Swimming pools
- Beauty salon
- Areas for yoga
- Pilates and cross-fit
- Playgrounds and educational areas for your children
- Snack bar

For shopping and other amenities, if you are a resident in Valle Escondido, your choices are incredible. You will be 5 minutes away from Multiplaza Escazu. Also, Villa Lindora to the west and the old town of Santa Ana to the south.
