About investing in Costa Rica:

Over the past 10 years, Tamarindo has had steady growth increase of property values averaging 20% per year, prediction is that there is still more appreciation to come. Globally the demand is here, Americans, Canadians, Europeans, French investors and baby-boomers are choosing Costa Rica as their tropical retreat away from home. The main reasons in order of importance: proximity to the US and Canada, culture, lifestyle and prices as well as tax-laws (in general cost of real estate ownership in Costa Rica, being lower than in other countries).

Costa Rica has a bright future ahead, some savvy investors know it and so do we. What happened in 2005-06 was just the beginning of an unprecedented and extraordinary real estate boom that just put the country on the map as one of the top vacation destinations and will get people to invest and eventually relocate in our tropical paradise. Anticipating that new beginning, some developers are now putting on the market a new class of project, well conceived, respectful of the environment and featuring large tropical common areas as well as specific services… and most importantly they’re fairly priced!

Often, investing in Costa Rica can make more sense than investing in your own country and can become a great rental income producer as well. Extremely low property taxes, no capital-gain taxes and no inheritance taxes, among other benefits. Investing in Costa Rica contribute by helping the economy of the country and to generate growth and employment.

In Case you haven’t heard yet:

In 2015, Costa Rica had their first three months of electricity generated by purely renewable means. This is part of their effort to become Carbon Neutral by 2021.

People from all around the world are claiming this year, once again, that Costa Rica is the “Happiest Place on Earth”. After nearly 15 years here we can assure you that from personal experience it is! Strangers still exchange smiles on the beach, wave hello in the streets, and give the “Guanacasteco” ‘HOOT, HOOT, HOOT’ as you pass by.

Access to the “Gold Coast” of Costa Rica is even easier. Many new direct flights to Liberia Int’l Airport were added this year. The most noteworthy are from London’s Gatwick (Thomson Airways), Washington D.C. (Southwest), and Los Angeles (Alaska Airlines). There are now direct flight’s from 21 cities around the world.

Costa Rica is still at the forefront of healthy living. GMO crops here are still at an all time low with only roughly 1000 acres of experimental crops. Of those, the majority are cotton. Furthermore, there is an organic revolution. Access to organic foods is easier than ever with many local producers delivering door to door similarly to the 1950’s. It is no wonder that the Nicoya Peninsula is one of the five “Blue Zones” on the planet where people live measurably longer lives.

Our tropical outlook is as positive as ever! If you are thinking about retirement or owning a vacation home in this latitude you only need to bring some flip-flops, T-shirts, and shorts! We’ll, maybe a little bit of sun block as well.
