Investing in Costa Rica Property

Escape to safety from the next crisis

We are living in unprecedented times. However, owning your luxury vacation home in Costa Rica is your ultimate sanctuary. Costa Rica is the perfect place for relaxation and enjoyment – a tropical paradise with absolutely stunning sunsets when things are good. Costa Rica offers you a safe haven to stay at home, and social distance in comfort, complete with a phenomenal ocean view far away from the stress and risks of any urban city. At SARCO Architects Costa Rica, we help you have a fantastic experience while creating your uniquely personal safe haven.

After the 9-11 attacks in New York, large numbers of North Americans chose to own property in Costa Rica. The worry of that event happening again made thousands of Americans decide to own a home where they could escape to in the worst of circumstances. The current COVID-19 pandemic is a new version of this same uneasiness. Will this happen again? Now is the time to plan and design your new home away from home. If this moment happens again, you have your place of safety and refuge.

“I love architecture. I love creating masterpiece luxury homes. I love the attention to detail and working closely with our clients. However, it wasn’t until recently when some of my clients have reached out that I realized there was much more.  I never imagined that all our work and dedication would ultimately serve a much deeper, more meaningful purpose. We have created places of ultimate sanctuary for their families. Places where they can come home and find safety and tranquility in paradise. The Ultimate Luxury

UNPARALLELED NATURAL BEAUTY

Costa Rica  has become the hottest destination for High-End Luxury Property Ownership.

Beautiful nature provides the spectacular backdrop for your new luxury residence.

 
 

Costa Rica is a place where you will find natural greenery all over the country, with pristine, untouched nature reserves, tropical beaches, and intense biodiversity.

Along our long coastlines, you will encounter very different microclimates, providing something for everyone.

Mostly facing westward, the beaches in this area provide the most stunning "paintings" in the skyline with every awe-inspiring sunset.
The southern part of the Nicoya Peninsula and the Central Pacific regions provide lush, thick jungles with the booming growth of all types of bushes, palms, and trees, that give the natural "highways" for all kinds of natural wildlife.
The interior areas also provide stunning vistas, as the rugged topography throughout the country offers valleys and mountains to create natural compositions during all seasons.
This rugged topography is what makes our coastlines so beautiful. The quick vertical elevation gained in very short distances from the coast is what gives the fantastic ocean views found in Costa Rica.

connecting with nature

The tranquility of connecting with nature around you is the real luxury

 
 
 

With the wide variety of species in our tropical jungles and rainforest areas, as far as trees, bushes, flowers, and wildlife of all types roaming around in their natural habitats, there is no place like Costa Rica to connect with nature.

Forget about the noisy hustle and bustle of New York, with the constant car horns, sirens in the background, and non-stop activity. Enjoying your home in Costa Rica will give you the soothing sound of the waves on the beach, birds chirping, crickets, and nighttime wildlife giving its evening concerts.

 
 

YOUR LUXURY LIFESTYLE - NO ADDED INGREDIENTS

Luxury comes from the ability to enjoy your time and achieve personal balance to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings

 
 
 

Years ago, our Institute of Tourism came up with a slogan for international marketing and country image which was: "Costa Rica, no artificial ingredients."

This slogan was transformed into "Essential Costa Rica." Either way, the message is the same. Costa Rica is a place where you can connect with pure nature.

No embellishment, no making it look like it's real. It just is real.

Stunning sunsets, amazing ocean vistas. Complete disconnecting and finding your personal balance.

Investing in Costa Rica property allows you to enjoy all the wonders that nature allows.

investing in costa rica property

Costa Rica has many options for your Luxury Vacation Residence.

Peninsula Papagayo resort is the country's premiere destination for high-end luxury property.

There is no investment anywhere that you can call a "sure bet." If you are considering investing in a second or third residence, or if you are investing in a luxury vacation residence with potential for high-end rentals, Costa Rica should be at the top of your list.
The political stability and friendly environment for foreign investment make Costa Rica a very safe location for investing in your luxury vacation home. Costa Rica does not have an army. In the 1950s, and a substantial change in the country's philosophy came about: invest the funds for military activity into education.
Given the country's massive commitment to the environment, its protection of natural areas (the country has enormous forest reserve areas), Costa Rica has gained an international appeal that attracts more and more visitors every year. Global interest in Costa Rica and the selection of the country by people of all kinds -celebrities, business owners, executives, and vacationers and full or part-time retirees- of the country to own their own home in Paradise grows every year.
The unparalleled natural beauty, together with the availability of locations with all of the expected infrastructure and amenities of high-end luxury resorts, give new investors great possibilities.

 

Why Costa Rica

Probably the best explanation was given to us by one of our esteemed clients.
A German national, he wanted to have a home in a warmer, more tropical setting — a place to relax and unwind. He was sitting in his home office in Münich and had a globe in front of him. He decided he would focus on an area between the 10-degree north parallel and the 10-degree south parallel.

As he started in Europe, Florence was a simple choice, but that did not provide the "getting away" feeling that he wanted. He started turning the globe eastward and arrived in India. He felt India had stunning locations, but they were not easy to get to and required going through some unpleasant areas. Kept turning the globe and arrived in East Asia, where also he knew he would find stunning places in Singapore, Malaysia, or even Bali. Still, the weather was going to be overwhelmingly hot and humid, and additionally, getting there was quite a trek.
Kept turning eastward and arrived in Hawaii. Unquestionably beautiful and pleasant weather, but the cost of land is prohibitive. Travel to Hawaii is also even farther away than Singapore and Malaysia, so that was also a pass.

He kept turning and arrived in Central America. The northern four countries (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Belize) he discarded because of insecurity and potential political instability considerations. Nicaragua is an obvious no, especially after the most recent political unrest and the total loss of value of all property for international investors. Hotels and resorts have closed up completely. People avoid traveling to Nicaragua altogether.

That left him with Costa Rica and Panama.

Panama is an international business, logistics, and banking hub. It has a very dynamic economy and has proven to have decent political stability over the past 40 years. There are a few communities with mostly US-expats, but those are mainly in the mountain areas in Boquete, about 5 hours away from Panama City and not near any beautiful beach areas.

In Costa Rica, he found a vast array of beautiful natural locations all around the country. From the jungle, beaches, amazing coastlines, mountains, etc. He also found a country with friendly and service-oriented people, a place where he could feel welcome. Wanting a location for a high-end luxury property, he also found areas such as the Peninsula Papagayo luxury resort, where he could decide on purchasing high-end property and feel his investment was secure.

There was no match; Costa Rica was the right choice.
