There has never been a better time or a safer way to invest in land! Purchase a sea view lot now, reap the property appreciation benefits of local investments, have the wood harvested and sold for you in 6-8 years, then replant the land or build your dream home / development project in one of the hottest property markets and beautiful locations on the planet! Each plot of land is planted with 11, 14 or 18 year old Teak, Melina or Pochote trees and are either bordering the public road or have sea/river views. These building plots commonly show the most rapid price increases. The building plots vary from approximately 1,000 to 10,000 square meters, with the 10,000 square meters plots being ideally suited for re-division into smaller building plots, after the final felling of the trees in approximately 6 years. Each plot is ready for immediate development – there is no zoning required. You may maintain the property yourself or pay a mere €42 per 1.000 square meters annually for maintenance. If you wish to sell your building plot in a few years, you are free to hire a local real estate agent. Of course, we are also at your disposal to handle the sale.

Purchase is easy. The price of your building plot includes central water source and transfer tax, topographical work, registering in the Land Registry, placement of border markers, supply of electricity to the main entrance, renovation of existing roads and construction of new roads where needed. You will receive an official notary deed for your building plot and it will be registered in the Land Registry. The Land Registry in Costa Rica is of excellent quality and comparable to the Land Registry in Europe. You can verify on the Internet if the building plot has been registered in your name. We would also be happy to assist you in purchasing the property via a company, enabling you to avoid Costa Rican capital gains tax for a mere 55 EUR per annum.

According to NASA, Costa Rica has the best climate in the world. Add to that its democratic and peaceful government, and you have a stable and idyllic escape from reality. To North Americans, Costa Rica is today what Spain was to Europeans 20 years ago. Just a couple hours by plane, Costa Rica offers a cheap and safe retirement haven for American and Canadian ‘Baby Boomers’ interested in acquiring affordable real estate near the sea and beach. With prices now out of reach in Mexico, Costa Rica has seen a steady increase of 7% annually in tourism with an annual tourism industry worth $1.9 billiion. Already a haven for movie-stars attracted to Costa Rica’s diverse, beautiful landscape and beaches, the next decade will see Costa Rican real estate exponentially increasing in value as the demand rises. With over 30% of Costa Rica’s land declared as a nature reserve or park, building land in the country is scarce – more so if you are near to the water. As the ever-increasing demand for well located building plots continues, the upward potential is enormous for these plots. Currently house and development land prices in the prime locations are increasing at over 50% annually.

Surrounded by the Gulf of Nicoya, the Puntarenas region caters to your every heart’s desire: nature reserves in the mountains, agriculture in the plains and tourist development along the beaches. Declared a duty free port in 1845, Puntarenas itself attracts a loyal tourist base, beckoning local day-trippers, and holiday deal-seekers, as well as being the starting point for many excursion tours and ferries. It has recently become the most important port of call for some of the major cruise liners with its waterfront seafood restaurants, bars, and lively weekends.
