Fiesta Cup 2010 - Golf At Is Best!
Sunny Costa Rica, Playmates & Beautiful Models Played Host For Annual Charity Golf Classico

Fiesta Casino Donates Over $8,000 To Marginal Schools of Alejuela & Angie Quesada Qualified for Latina Finals at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Las Vegas

Costa Rica is known for its beautiful coast lines, its tropical forests, its balance with nature, and its “ticos”, the wonderful and friendly people. It is also know for its incredibly beautiful women. It is for that reason that PlayerXT staged a beauty pageant to crown the most beautiful Latina in Costa Rica at the Fiesta Casino in San Jose.
The Costa Rica pageant was hosted by Telemundo's Rene Braga and Playmate Shallan Meiers. They were assisted by PlayerXT's Maya Rochelle, Myste Wright and Lindsey Eller. The event and models were featured in all major Costa Rican newspapers, and the models signed autographs wherever they went.

The event was staged at the Fiesta Casino, which is the premier night spot in San Jose. The first multi-entertainment gaming center in the Costa Rican market, this casino includes slot machines, table games, an exclusive card room, and a themed bar and restaurant with a state of the art entertainment facility with nightly live entertainment including professional dancers. Director of Entertainment, Alex Rubenstein keeps the place hopping with some of the best talent in Central America. This facility has a bar with a “pirate ship” theme, the waiters in costume, and a casino area with a “Mayan temple” theme. The food was magnifico; American beers have nothing on Imperial and Pilsen.

While in San Jose, the models helped host the 4th Annual Fiesta Cup Golf Tournament with Nick Costas, Director of VIP Services for Thunderbird Resorts and the Fiesta Casino. Each year, Costas stages this prestigious golf event to raise money for charity. This year's tournament was held at the Valle Del Sol Golf Course and Cariari County Club, two of San Jose's premium golf clubs. Costas had a full field of 108 golfers and this year’s charity was the Marginal Schools of Alejuela, which received a check for $8,000. Last year they bought an Ambulance for the Red Cross. In previous years, they have donated to the Association for Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation, the Association for the Disabled, and the School System of Santa Ana. In the past four years, the tournament has raised over $60,000.

Director of Operations for Thunderbird Resorts in San Jose is Marco Chavarria, who made us feel right at home, and apprised us of their new development, Tres Rios in San Jose. Thunderbird Tres Rios will be anchored by a luxury resort hotel, a Las Vegas style casino, a world-class convention center, a world-class spa and health club, commercial real estate, and a private residential community.

Beautiful Tica model Angie Quesada walked away with the title of the Most Beautiful Latina in Costa Rica. Miss Quesada will travel to Las Vegas on September 24 - 28 to compete in the Search for the Most Beautiful Latina Models in the World at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Angie Quesada is a very popular model in Costa Rica. Google the name to see pages of this popular model, dancer, singer, and actress on the internet. She is one of the feature models in the prestigious Latin American calendar Piel Dorada, and will be featured in the top men's online lifestyle site, Bullz-Eye.com. Bullz-Eye publisher, Gerardo Orlando, made the trip personally to help judge and select the models he would feature over the next year. Bullz-Eye ranks as the number two online men's lifestyle magazine with over 5 million visitors per month. At right is an article of Angie in the newspaper alDia after her big win. Check out pictures of the Costa Rican beauty taken by Paul Miller below.

The Costa Rica event
was staged by PlayerXT in conjunction with Telemundo, and is part of an international search to find the most beautiful model in the Latin world. The Costa Rica pageant was hosted by the Fiesta Casino and Thunderbird Resorts, and kicked off a comprehensive quest to find 30 Hispanic models in the Latin world to bring to Las Vegas for the Greatest Latina Search Ever. The entire summer search series, conducted in Latin counties around the world and the United States, will be covered by Telemundo's Ritmo Deportivo and sponsored by Telemundo, Thunderbird Resorts, Fiesta Casinos, Piel Dorada, Maxim Espanol, Bullz-Eye, Blue Ray Technologies, Red Bull Energy Drink, Budwieser, Patron, and many more.

Following the weekend of festivities, the winners traveled to the exclusive Las Suenos Resort to be shot by the award winning photographers from the United States and Costa Rica representing Playboy, Maxim, and Bullz-Eye: Paul Miller, Bo Hitchcock, Edwin Jammer, Mariano Matamoros, Marcelo Pimentel, and Gary Ashton. We were delivered to the coastal community by our long-time friend Harold Guerro, who took care of our ride and security. Our host in the Los Suenos area was Mike Hardy. Hardy is a great sucess story, and has been selling and managing property for over 10 years in this prestigious destination resort area. He is the perfect investment guide in Costa Rica. We stayed at Hardy's Casa Tropical. There is no way to describe it. You have to look for yourself.

Hardy also arranged for us to stay and photograph at Marabella. The Marabella condominiums are the premier properties in Los Suenos, selling for over $3M/unit, and are correspondingly well appointed. Located on a scenic hillside overlooking the marina, these luxury accomodations feature 6 infinity pools, multiple Jacuzzis and, in our case, an ocean view overlooking the marina with its incredible sunrise. Check out some of the photos below.

The Racey Girls, Maya, Myste, and Lindsey enjoyed the Pura Vida of Costa Rica to the fullest. Besides photoshoots on the beach and poolside, eating some of Central America's finest cuisine, touring the coastal town of Jaco, they zip-lined through the canopy, watched toucans and monkeys at play, and took a yoga class in the middle of the deep jungle at Amatierra Retreat & Wellness Center. Owner Jill Ruttenberg guided them through a rigorous yoga class, and harmonic healing.

The summer search series will travel to Guadalajara, Mexico in June. In July, the search team will visit the South American countries of Columbia, Brazil, and Argentina. August will find them in Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, and Matzalan. The search will end up in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico before heading to Las Vegas for the Grand Finals. PlayerXT has aligned with Costra Rican television producer, Hector Alfaro Dobles of CAWAMA Tropical Films, to assist in the search through Central America. Dobles has been producing the premier beauty pageant in Latin America for the past 10 years entitled Piel Dorada. Models fly in from all over Latin America to be part of his event.

These Latin countries have many beautiful Latinas with no opportunity to show who they are," said Curt Holstein of PlayerXT. "Each city we visit, we will meet and discover lovely ladies from all over the Latin world."
