nicoya hammock.jpegThe English translation of Costa Rica is "Rich Coast", and It's not lost on the people, or the government, that those pristine beaches are Costa Rica's biggest tourism draw. For that reason, there are stringent laws in place to protect that greatest of all natural resources that promote tourism, the #1 industry in Costa Rica. The result are a multitude of beach towns the dot the coast line that range from quaint and cozy, to partying and bustling... and all types in between. In the South Pacific region, you'll find Manuel Antonio, one of the most popular beach towns due in large part to it's proximity to the National State Park by the same name, which is one of the most visited places in Costa Rica. Further up the coast is Jaco Beach, one of the first active beach towns that cropped up due to it's close proximity to the Central Valley and the only international airport at the time.

Further north you enter the Nicola Peninsula which is known for it's unsurpassed nature, beauty and Pura Vida. Ranging further up north into Guanacaste is Tamarindo, which might be the most popular of all beach towns in the country, then Playa Granda, a surfer's paradise, Flamingo where you'll find the most beautiful beach you may ever lay eyes on, all the up through Potrero, and sparkling ex-pat community, and Playas del Coco, one of the last large beach towns before you hit the Nicaragua Boarder.

On the eastern Caribbean coast, you'll get more of a Bahamas experience with crystal clear waters and sandy beaches. This is the least developed coast in Costa Rica which suits many people just fine.

Everyone one of these places offer a unique beach experience and enjoy many visitors from all over the globe year round. With that comes great real estate opportunities. Whether it's a cute vacation home, a vacation rental investment, or a hotel, restaurant or tourist operation, there's something for everyone in this tiny, amazing country,
