A Pictorial Tour of Quizur

Bienvenidos (Welcome) ramp to Main House
Quizur served as a second campus for the United Nations University for Peace (UPeace). housed visiting professors and provided an Event Center for large events.

The property was shared with the Academy for Peace of Costa Rica (APCR), which trained public school teachers in the Connection Practice, a skill for meeting challenges in life,

The APCR was a project of Rasur Foundation International (RFI), a US nonprofit. Now circumstances have changed and selling the property will provided needed funds to RFI, UPeace and RFI’s founder, Rita Marie Johnson. So, in purchasing this property, you would receive all its benefits and support those who are working for a more peaceful world.
