About Us

Blue Zone Tropical is a German/ Costa Rican enterprise that has been operating in Costa Rica for several years now. 

We focus on the following areas:

  • We develop building lots in Hojancha, which belong to one of five worldwide existing blue zones. Additionally, we can build your move-in ready houses. 
  • Since 2012, we have been successful in reforestation projects with teak trees and native wood from Costa Rica. 
  • Since we have our own machine fleet, we can provide custom made services for investors. This can be moving earth, making roads and tracks on farms, thinning and harvesting of timber plantations and the sale of wood.

Our values are honesty, punctuality and responsibility. We combine the advantages of Central American culture with those of German culture. 

Our Team


Javier Villalobos

Javier has been working “outside” since his 15th birthday. He learned the agricultural business, and everything you need in the practice from his family. 

Very early on, he was in different forestry projects carried out by local and foreign investors. He had many areas of responsibility, where he learned quickly that you can only have successful projects when you control all work steps involved.

 Therefore, over several years, we have built our own machine fleet with qualified staff, which allows us to carry out all types of work at a high level of quality in different forestry projects. 

Javier is living with his family in Hojancha/Guanacaste and is therefore very close to our projects and can fulfill his responsibilities perfectly.

    Thomas Klaus Ringshandl

    “I already fell in love with Costa Rica and its people during my first holidays in this country in 1995.” 

    This is what Thomas says wholeheartedly with complete conviction. 

    Being in love changed to true love. Today, he lives partially in Germany and partially in Costa Rica. With Javier, he manages all the companies.

    In the past, he was a managing director and board member on his own and in large corporate groups. He learned everything needed to run a successful business there. 


      His opinion about Costa Rica:

      “Costa Rica offers investors and people who want to live there everything they wish for: amazing nature, great and friendly people, legal certainty and public security, so you can move freely. The blue zone of Hojancha features a climate where you don’t sweat or freeze all year. What else do you need?”
