We never intended to live in one of the most gringo neighborhoods in Atenas – but that’s where we ended up. Roca Verde is a gated community with a guard at the gate. This drug lord palace on the hill overlooking Atenas from the back of the church was too tempting. It totally blew our budget.
But we couldn’t resist. Besides, with a large house and two small ones on the property, Carlos has one for his office and the other one is for guests.
