In July 2010, American businessmen Henry Wilkins and Barry McDaniel purchased a tract of land in the sleepy Costa Rica village of Miramar. The idea was to develop the land for lower and middle income Costa Ricans, in concert with local government since there is a shortage of housing in Costa Rica. Having survived the harshest conditions of post war Iraq, Bosnia and Afghanistan, Costa Rica should have been easy. What they didn't anticipate is that everything they knew would be turned upside down. Shady locals and inept government bureaucracy conspired against them. On the brink of financial disaster and investor lawsuits, they forged forward to turn the entire scenario around through hard work, honesty and also incorporated the plight of those Costa Ricans who were victims of the same type of scam.
