About Hotel Heliconia Island
We are Henk and Carolien Peters- van Duijnhoven, We are both from Groesbeek, in the Netherlands. Henk has worked for 22 years at Philips, Carolien has had her own dog grooming salon and has been a veterinarian assistant. In 2000 we first learned about the beautiful Costa Rica when we had a holiday here. We were in love with the country right away and loved the beautiful nature, animals and friendly people.
We knew then that we wanted to live here. That dream lasted for some more holidays until we found Heliconia island at a real estate agent. Now this unique place is ours and our guests and we enjoy the nature and the temperature.
