Homes Farms and Businesses

Lake Arenal offers a wide range of home prices. Tico (rustic) homes start as low as $30,000 on a small piece of land in many parts of Costa Rica. A more modern home on a half acre can be found starting at $100,000 to $250,000 range, some in gated communities. We have homes on large parcels of land, should you wish privacy. We also have a good selection of luxurious homes, including pools, tennis courts, guest cottages, rivers, ponds and even lakefront with private docks.

Land is available for as little as $1 per meter (about $4000 per acre) in larger parcels, some with springs, rivers and waterfalls and awesome views. Land in sub divided residential communities run between $12 and $40 per meter, some gated communities include pools, tennis courts and private lake side docks.

There are many properties in between those prices, from small home sites to farm lands over 1000 acres, and even several lake front properties with full access to Lake Arenal in Costa Rica.

We maintain a wide variety of commercial listings including small bed and breakfasts all the way to larger hotels with restaurants, bars and pools. We also have shops, bars and other commercial properties in all price ranges. We can guide you in starting a commercial venture and give you our experience on what new services we think would be successful in the area.

Costa Rica is safe and is often referred to as the Switzerland of Central America.

Costa Rica is roughly the size of West Virginia.

Costa Rica has a composite of climates and topographies, mountains, plains and coastal zones to choose from. Telephone, electricity, Internet and television services are modern and reliable.

The medical facilities in the private hospitals are first class and a fraction of the cost in the US, as is the medical insurance available to foreign residents.

Taxes are low and the cost of living makes retirement affordable and attractive in Costa Rica.
