Costa Rica homes are a secure investment

Many international residents that have purchased Costa Rica homes have enjoyed a healthier quality of life since relocating to this paradise country. With news from the Happy Planet Index that Costa Rica has been voted as the world’s happiest nation, this country is becoming an exciting alternative for many expats.


Taking heed from the advice of international financial experts that encourage investors to diversify their real estate portfolio outside of North America and Europe, Costa Rica homes have emerged as an attractive investment. Maintaining market values and continuing their upward appreciation, Costa Rica homes are a secure investment that can give buyers a protected financial future.


A range of areas in Costa Rica are experiencing solid growth for commerce, tourism and real estate. One such region is the South Pacific coast which has benefited from the new coastal highway along with multimillion dollar infrastructure improvements.


Offering great opportunities for all types of investors Costa Rica homes in the South Pacific are leading the way as the country’s new real estate boom. As once seen in the Northern Pacific province of Guanacaste, this region experienced a significant economic growth in the 1980s and 1990s, which culminated with the opening of the Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport in Liberia. When the new airport opened, land values shot up and paved the way for many multimillion dollar residential, hospitality, medical and tourist complexes to appear in the region.


A familiar story is happening with the South Pacific. The Costa Rican government is currently developing plans to open its third international airport near Puerto Jimenez due to the continuing high investment the area is experiencing. Protected from over development, there are still many chances to profit in the South Pacific and finding Costa Rica homes at affordable prices are still the norm. In a place where values are predicted to double in just a few years time, investing in Costa Rica homes in the South Pacific is the place to be.
