La Rosa de Los Vientos Pedasi front outside view – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingRobert and Isabelle Shahverdians found the place that eventually became La Rosa de Los Vientos in Pedasi, Panama after they had traveled Costa Rica and found it wanting.  They then moved around Panama, to see if there was something better.
