(06-17-11) -- Josh Flagg, world renowned author and one of the stars of Bravo TV's hit reality series "Million Dollar Listing" will be hosting a four-day dance party in the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area of Costa Rica from July 21 to 25.

Josh Flagg to Dance Party Sponsored by Hacienda Matapalo, the best selling gated community on Costa Rica's South Pacific Coast, the four day event kicks off with a Welcome Dinner Party at Raphael's Terrazas in Manuel Antonio on Thursday, July 21 and concludes with a Sunset Tea Dance at Barba Roja on Sunday, July 24. Other parties include a Friday night dance party at a popular Manuel Antonio club on July 22, an afternoon floating dance party leaving from Quepos harbor on Saturday, July 23 and the big Jungle Heat Dance Party at Rancho Alegria on Saturday night, July 23.

"I can't wait to visit Costa Rica," says Flagg, who has been to more than 50 countries around the world, but has yet to experience the land of Pura Vida. "I've heard so much about this amazing place that I am really looking forward to it."

Aside from discovering Costa Rica's incredible biodiversity and participating in some of the activities that the country is famous for - ziplining under the rainforest canopy, hiking through amazing nature trails and visiting the active volcano at Mt. Arenal - Flagg hopes to mix a little business with his pleasure.

"In addition to seeing all the wonders Costa Rica has to offer from a vacationer's perspective, I'm also looking forward to visiting the Hacienda Matapalo property to see if I can bring business there."

Flagg, who has penned two best-selling books - "Million Dollar Agent" and "Stories My Grandmother Told Me" - and is considered one of the top real estate agents in the greater Los Angeles area (having made record sales of $15 million to $25 million on single estates), says he is intrigued about expanding his offerings to include the 665 acre master planned community.

"It's not every day you get an opportunity to present a property like this," he says. "But from everything I've read and seen about this development - including the fact that they have five-star amenities within their community - Hacienda Matapalo just might be the ideal place for me to expand my business. But, I won't make a final decision on that until I get to the property and see it for myself."

Hacienda Matapalo has a wide range of offerings from 1.25 acre Home Sites starting in the mid-$200,000s and Lake View Condos from $205,000 to Ocean View Condos from $330,000 and Exclusive Ocean View Penthouse Condos for as much as $1.28 million.

In March 2011, Flagg made headlines when he came out in an exclusive interview with SDGLN.com (San Diego Gay & Lesbian News). He admits part of his interest in potentially doing business with Hacienda Matapalo is the fact that the community is gay-friendly, has several owners who are gay and that the company's CEO has a sister who is a gay doctor.

"I like the fact that while they are not a gay development, they recognize and understand that the gay community has purchasing power, remain loyal to businesses that recognize that and as such are marketing to it."
