About George

George Lundquist

Founder of RCSS and your Tour Guide!

george 2006-2I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1965 with a AA in Electrical Engineering and a BA in Industrial Psychology and started work at Texas Instruments in Dallas, moving to Texas to escape the cold. I completed most of the course work for an MBA at the University of Dallas.

I left Texas Instruments to go to work for Haggar Slacks. Three years later I had a chance to move to the Rio Grande Valley of Texas as the VP of Manufacturing for the Southern Division of Haggar Slacks. After 13 years, it was time for a change and I started my own business, Calidad Electronics, Inc. close to the Mexican border. The business made a profit every year since inception and earned placement in the INC. Magazine’s 500 Fastest growing, PROFITABLE companies in the US for 1990 &1991.

After selling Calidad to an IPO from New York in 1993 I did freelance Management and Engineering consulting for companies in the Telecommunications, Meals Ready to Eat, Powder Coating, and Bass Boat business’.

By 2001, after several successive non-producing investments, at 61 years old I decided to explore how to live on our Social Security income.

We fell in LUST with Costa Rica and after living in one of the many beautiful rural areas for a short time, I decided to start a tour operation to show others who might not want or need to live in a highly promoted, tightly gated, guarded, community with it’s high prices, heavy traffic, and materialistic, hectic lifestyle, how incredibly fun and healthy life can be.

We have now lived over 15 years better than we ever could have dreamed, here, in Costa Rica!!!
