Buying and owning Real Estate in Costa Rica is possible with few requisites even for non-residents

Come and enjoy the good life, Pura Vida!, as the locals say. The house and retirement of your dreams is still possible here as most real estate is still a bargin compared to the prices in the US and Europe. Own property with security in this democratic and politically stable country. Whether in the balmy highlands around San Jose, or the more tropical lowlands of the sea coasts on the beach, you will find the "finca", condo or home of your dreams. Peruse through the commercial and business opportunities below, from industrial properties to a hotel / marina for sale. Choose your residential parcel, lot, or house in the mountains or on one of the many beaches of Costa Rica. Or, enlist the aid of a Real Estate Agent that is familiar with the areas you wish to see.

  • Why Condos are the HOT topic in tropical Costa Rica??

    If you're vacationer to Costa Rica or investor, or both, you can't find a better way to have your cake and eat it too!   Beachfront condominiums in Jaco or Flamingo Beach, or in the cool highlands of the Central Valley, afford the vacationer a relaxing home away from home.   In addition, your Costa Rican condo can double as a vacation rental income producer when you're away, or as a treat for your family members and friends. Then, when you're ready to retire and live here, you've locked in yesterday's prices! Which is better for you - a condo or a house?
