Proof There Is No Wetlands On Las Olas.
The first video was taken in May of 2011 when agents from the Government of Costa Rica came down to Las Las and marked the "alleged wetlands" with stakes and a yellow ribbon. We had our backhoe then dig a hole, over 1 meter down, AT EVERY STAKE and as you can see there is no water. May is the rainy season.
The second video is a pool that was being put in by the owner of the home that was in the same area. As can be seen there is no water in that hole. As can be seen by the aerial views above, there are no signs of wetlands on the Las Las property. Further, there is a project adjoining Las Olas that has 94 home lots and no wetlands there. In the upper left hand corner there is another project being built as well and no wetlands there. As can be seen in the Google aerial, there are homes all around Las Olas and no wetlands there.

Costa Rica Government Putting in Huge Strom Drains in Front of Las Olas Project in Esterillos Oeste
Below are 10 pictures taken on March 3, 2010 of the Costa Rica Government putting in very large storm drains in front of the Las Olas Project in Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica. What is very interesting is that the US Investors are suing the Government of Costa Rica for illegal shutting their real estate project down after the developers acquired all the legally required permits. The Government’s defense is that there are wetlands on the project, which the developers say is false, and that the developers were draining the wetlands, also which is contested. However, the installation of these huge storm drains will drain the alleged wetlands from the Las Olas project that the Government says is an environmentally protected sensitive ecosystem. It will be interesting to see if the Government got any environmental impact studies done from SETENA before they started putting in storm drains that will drain the “alledged” wetlands.
Proof of Costa Rica Government Duplicity in CAFTA International Arbitration Case
Below are pictures taken on April 3, 2017 of a huge storm drain that was put under a main highway, in Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica by the Government of Costa Rica, in late March of 2017. The storm drain was put into a property owned by US Investors and is intended to drain water out of the property. What is amazingly unbelievable about this, is that the Government of Costa Rica argued in a December 5, 2016 CAFTA Arbitration hearing in Washington DC, that this exact area, is a protected wetland and sensitive ecosystem. The US Investors contend that the area is not a wetland and the project was fully approved and permitted by the Government in 2010; and was illegally shut down only after the developers refused to pay a bribe.
Costa Rica’s recent action of putting this huge drain tube into the Las Olas Property, in the exact area they asserted was a protected wetland in the Arbitration hearing; not only contradicts their assertions, but seems to indicate the Government is guilty of the very same crime they accused the US Developers of committing. The fact that the Government would do this, at the very time the International Arbitrators are deliberating this CAFTA case, is mystifyingly unexplainable. So either the Costa Rica Government is the most incompetent in Central and South America, or they were intentionally lying to the arbitration panel at the hearing in December of 2016. This is something the panel will have to sort out during their deliberations, which were started on March 10, 2017. A decision in this CAFTA Arbitration Case, brought by the US Investors, is expected by the end of 2017 or the first quarter of 2018.
