Costa Rica homes ARE selling, especially when they’re priced well. Just 3 weeks ago Tami and I were looking a properties in Costa Rica with our favorite Guanacaste real estate agent. We looked at single family homes, condos, vacant lots and land from $200,000 to over $4,000,000. We looked in Escazu near San Jose, in Manuel Antonio and Esterillos, and from Tamarindo to Peninsula Papagayo. This one was my favorite, in a hillside gated community¬† in Playa Panama, and offered at $1,350,000 furnished. It wasn’t the biggest or most expensive and it wasn’t the smallest or least expensive, but as Goldilocks said, it was JUST right. 4,000 sq ft of classic architecture, intricate detailing, charming gardens and balustrade-lined terraces overlooking Bahia Culebra – an infinity edge pool, hand painted walls and decor from around the world.¬† Alas, my dream was shattered when Mike told me earlier this week that “my home” was under contract to someone else.

Evaluating real estate opportunities in Costa Rica

Balcony View - del Pacifico - Costa Ricadel Pacifico at Esterillos Este, Costa Rica

Tami and I just returned from a long weekend Gathering at del Pacifico on the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica in Esterillo Este. Click on the photo to see a larger version. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but there’s a nice water view of the Pacific from our balcony. We found real estate to recommend to our clients for a vacation and/or for an investment, whether it’s a condominium, a home, or a lot.

del Pacifico offers a quality product in a quality development. Whether you’re looking to relax away from it all, enjoy horseback riding, sport fishing or golf, there’s something here for you. We liked the people we met at the Gathering, the del Pacifico founders and staff, and found the Ticos (the people of Costa Rica) pleasant, caring, and with a peaceful spirit for their land and for each other.
