Our history

Coming to Costa Rica in the late 80’s, our Founder Sylvaine Pilault was horrified at the condition the previous activities had left behind – the deforestation of large tracts of land, the focus on banana production and wood extraction for the benefit of off-shore entities.

As one of the first companies to establish itself in the residential field in the Osa Peninsula, Ventana del Pacífico committed itself to acting in a sound and pro-active manner; we decided that we would work diligently to remedy the existing environmental and economic situation.  We focused on developing employment opportunities and began to form important strategic alliances with the local businesses.

Today, our company and community have grown; and with us many local families, companies and Costa Rican institutions have grown as well. We currently employ hundreds of local staff who receive good wages, a full benefits package, as well as the opportunity to grow personally and professionally. Our economy continues to thrive as the alliances built with local businesses have expanded to enable these companies to provide most of goods and services needed for our business.

VDP is aware of its responsibility to the community as the area´s largest employer. We take great pride in our achievements as an environmentally-conscious real estate developer, and the opportunities those achievements generate for individuals and companies alike.
