Celebrating 25 Sparkly Years in Business!

In 2018, Estipona Group celebrates 25 years in business. (Yay us! Past awkward early adulthood, well into legal drinking and practically to the age of not getting charged extra for car insurance.)

And while according to Hallmark, the traditional gift for the 25th year is silver, it’s like, really expensive.

Instead of getting silver Macs, we’re crafting some shiny prose to reflect on the people, places and things that helped us get to year 25. So, grab your parasol and join us on this stroll down memory lane.
