Luxury Homes for Sale in Costa Rica

Are you seeking luxury homes for sale in Costa Rica? For people seeking to uncouple from a fast-paced lifestyle, the prospect of luxury real estate in the welcoming climate of Central America can be an alluring one. A new development on the Peninsula Papagayo, Nekajui, offers an incredible opportunity for those in search of the perfect blend of luxury, intrigue, adventure, and beauty.

Why Purchase Property in Costa Rica?

Costa Rica is a favored choice for Americans making property purchases in Central America. There are many reasons why it enjoys this privileged status.

  • Natural beauty: Even for Central America, Costa Rica boasts outstanding natural beauty. It boasts considerable coastline, with access to the picturesque Pacific Coast and Caribbean Sea. It also features multiple spectacular national parks, including the Manuel Antonio National Park that was rated among the world’s top 12 most beautiful national parks. The Peninsula Papagayo deserves special  recognition, too, for its remarkable biodiversity and access to the UNESCO World Heritage Site: the Área de Conservación Guanacaste, in the least densely populated Costa Rican province.
  • Favorable conditions for investment: Costa Rica is the best Central American country to purchase luxury villas and other luxury property types because it has a winning combination of stability, low property taxes, and low requirements for residency.
  • Growing tourism industry: Costa Rica is the most attractive Central American country in terms of tourism, and in 2018, tourists from the United States outnumbered the combined number of tourists from the next ten countries with the greatest number of tourists to Costa Rica. While the needs of tourists are in some ways different to those of expats, there is substantial overlap. The golf courses and other sports facilities springing up around the Costa Rican countryside are of considerable interest to both groups. Restaurants, bars, spas, and other establishments which offer bilingual services can certainly contribute to the comfort of expats and tourists alike.

  • Arenal Volcano National Park: although there are no settlements close to this active volcano after its 1968 eruption, there are lots of appealing areas and activities to explore and enjoy in the area.
  • Monteverde: the Cloud Forests offer unique ecotourism opportunities, from birdwatching, to canopy tours, to ziplines.
  • Osa Peninsula & Corcovado National Park: hiking, Pacific coastal rainforest, snorkeling, and fishing are just some of the activities on offer on this peninsula.
