A growing number of North American baby-boomers have been looking at moving to Costa Rica to make their money go further or to re-invent themselves and many see Costa Rica real estate as a affordable solution for a permanent winter home, in a safe, friendly eco-environment.
Costa Rica is seen as having the most to offer retiring, and/or middle-class North Americas, looking to relocate. Costa Rica has a stable democracy friendly people and, a unique culture in Latin America. With no navy or airforce, Costa Rica’s last brief civil war in the late forties and early fifties, to abolish its armed forces and spend the money on education, with over 50 universities and a large highly educated workforce, Costa Rica has been attracting many large companies and foreign investment. Costa Rica has one of the highest literacy rates in all the Americas, including North America. Costa Rica is considered to be the best country in Central America to relocate to.
Conservation and sustainable eco-friendly government regulation has meant stringent police in regards to real estate development especially in such eco-rich areas as the northern province of Guanacaste, where there are incredible beautiful beaches, volcanoes and rain forests.
Access is continuing to open as more airlines are offering more flights to Costa Rica, both San Jose Airport and Liberia airport, and soon the New Palma Sur international airport when it opens. For example, Canada’s Sunwing Airlines recently announced the launch of new flights to San José in addition to current flights to Liberia, the northwestern province of Guanacaste. Flights from Toronto, Ontario, will depart weekly on Fridays starting Dec. 21, 2012.
As Free Trade investment continues to flood into Costa Rica, and ease of access continues to grow, analysts predict Costa Rica’s bear market real estate will see another boom over the next 5 years.
