Living in Costa Rica!
Investment
Our stunning Coco Beach condominium is listed at $230,000 USD.  This a second property for us as we also have a home on acreage on the outskirts of Playa del Coco.  We currently have a long-term tenant renting there but it is an ideal investment to promote as a vacation property.

Costa Rica has been one of the most popular retirement destinations for Canadians & Americans abroad, and it has boomed as a choice for second homes.  No province is as hot for part-timers as Guanacaste on the northwest Pacific coast.

"Costa Rica's appeal as a second-home destination is even greater today:  For the first time since real estate began skyrocketing five or six years ago, prices have softened," says Barry Golson, author of Retirement Without Borders:  How to Retire Abroad.  "With gorgeous jungle, mountain and beach landscapes, Costa Rica continues to set the tourism pace in Central America."

Costa Rica put eco- and adventure tourism on the map, and Guanacaste is home to 98% of the world's rare dry tropical forest.  It sits in the hurricane-free zone, and has mostly dry, sunny days from November to April.

It is also home to Arenal, a large man-made lake (the volcano of that name is in Alajuela province), and the pink sand beach Conchal.  Outdoor adventure is a big attraction, especially surfing, sportfishing and, increasingly, golf.  The Pan American Highway passes through its center, and air travel is easy to Liberia, the provincial capital.  Six years ago there were three direct U.S. flights a week, today there are more than 50.

Though many retirees and expat employees live in Liberia, virtually all vacation ownership property is on the coast.  Throughout Guanacaste, the cost of living is low, as are taxes.  For many buyers, property taxes are less per year than they pay per month at home, like $3,000 a year on a $2 million home.

RENTAL INCOME

The average rental rate for a condo like ours, using a site like www.homeaway.com as a comparison, is $200/nt.  So at 50% occupancy your annual rental income would be $36,500.
