Our new home will be finished in a few months and since we’ve promised to rent out our existing home fully furnished, we have a lot of items to buy.

We need a washing machine, dryer, oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and the stovetop, we decided on GE induction stovetop as it seems to be the most energy efficient.

My wife and I have been involved with real estate for the last ten years and she has probably furnished about 75 homes/apartments so we do know many of the best places to go but we thought we would try a new store and we’re very glad we did.

We’re glad because we met Christian Arroyo who is is a terrific and very knowledgeable salesman who works for Ambitec in San Rafael de Escazu.

When I say that he’s a terrific salesman, what I mean is that he really knows his products and will take his time and clearly explain why a particular appliance is better than another and based on what you tell him, he’ll tell you what he feels would be the the best choice for you.

I wanted to buy everything in the store!

Ambitec offers all the best known brands which come with the manufacturer’s guarantee.

  • General Electric
  • Kitchen Aid
  • Bosch
  • Cuisinart
  • Sony
  • Panasonic
  • Oster
  • Black & decker
  • Conair

Christian even astounded us by giving us a little history into the technology of washing machines manufactured in the USA.

For these reasons – product knowledge, listening skills, patience and excellent communication skills – I would suggest that Christian Arroyo of Ambitec is THE best person to talk to when it comes time for you to buy a new appliance in Costa Rica.


PS. Nobody is paying me promote Christian. I am taking the time to write this up because he gave us exceptional service.

    I’m looking for a electrical range with width of 31.25 inches.
    I’ve found that at least GE has a couple models which fit this size: GE JD630DFBB and JD630SFSS (stainless steel).
    Can I buy it through you and how much it will cost me?
    Thank you very much!
    Pura Vida!
