What the Papagayo Region is about
PROXIMITY TO AIRPORT.
The Guanacaste International airport is ocated just 20 minutes from the Papagayo region. There are more then 60 flights daily, with almost all major airlines arriving from most major cities. Tourists and investors can arrive in a matter of only hours to our area and be on the beach within minutes. There are currently plans for massive development of the area around the airport, from the Airport Hilton to a Hampton Inn and numerous malls and shopping centers.
PROXIMITY TO HOSPITALS AND MEDICAL CARE
There are two hospitals located just 30 minutes away in Liberia. There are also established private clinics that provide multiple personalized services with highly professional doctors.
WEATHER AND BEACHES
The Papagayo and the Northwest coast of Costa Rica has arguably the best weather in the country, with over 320 days of sunshine. The beaches of the Papagayo are considered by many the best in the country, as they are the only beaches that are not for surfing, making them excellent for resort and residential tourism. Snorkeling, scuba, fishing and a number of other water activities are very popular here in the area.
LARGE EX PAT COMMUNITY
The Papagayo area is known as a community of Americans and Canadians, and many people choose this as their home or retirement due to number of foreigners that live here.
Since so many North Americans are relocating with children to the Papagayo area, we have seen some wonderful private bilingual schools open in this area over the last few years.
Due to the growth and development in this area, the Papagayo region has some of the best roads in the country. There is a wide variety of restaurants and shopping in the area as well. The Four Seasons opened in January of 2004. Since that time, the hotel has been operating at almost 100% daily and has often been booked for months in advance. Properties in the area range in all prices. You can find a great studio apartment a few hundred meters from the beach for as low as $50,000 and Ocean view condos start at about $250k. There are 2 and 3 bedroom single family homes just a short walk to the beach starting at $300,000. Playa Hermosa and the surrounding beaches are most famous for their spectacular ocean view properties.
Although many come to Costa Rica with the vision of living on the beach, you may soon find out that living on a hill overlooking the the Pacific Ocean offers views that are unmatched anywhere else in the world. There are new communities with ocean view lots, currently selling at this time. They are all gated communities with paved roads, electricity, municipal water, cable TV, telephone and internet access. Lots in these developments run anywhere from $150,000 to $400,000, depending on size and view.
Costa Rica's government is in a better financial position compared to other Central American countries. However, their funds are not limitless. When they choose to focus on a region, such as Guanacaste, they are committed to ensuring its success. They cannot afford to waste money on mistakes.The government has designated Guanacaste as the primary recipient of its investment dollars for the next decade. They have invested millions in enhancing infrastructure, including roads, municipal water, telephone services, fiber optic internet, and cable and satellite TV. Additionally, they have supported numerous projects, ranging from golf courses and resort hotels to marinas, and have even expanded the airport to accommodate increased traffic. Investing in the Papagayo area is considered a secure option. Significant growth is anticipated over the next 5 to 10 years, with continued investment of hundreds of millions of dollars in the region. Guanacaste will always be a favorite destination in Costa Rica, known for its excellent weather, beautiful beaches, calm bays, and convenient airport access. This is why 95% of all major resorts and developments are being established here.
