We had a house built out here and researched the development thoroughly.The lagoons have both an entrance and exit and are flushed and exchanged with every tide. There is no pumps. The development has the rights to its own water well, so we do not run out of water. Utilities are all USA standards and our roads are all paved. The lots are almost sold out and the condos, costa divina, first phase, are being completed for feb, I believe. We absolutely love it out here. The golf course is pristine and we enjoy the clubhouse restaurant, the Crane. Is a beautiful, peaceful setting here and is a great active lifestyle with water activities,golf, walking, running and biking.
