Living in Costa Rica is unlike any other tropical paradise. Recently, it has become an urban Hot Spot as well, and we are seeing more and more apartment and condo settings across the country. This comfortable, many times highly affordable, safe and posh lifestyle is beyond a trend. Some of the most prime areas like Escazú, Santa Ana, Río Oro, Ciudad Colón, Rohrmoser, La Sabana and La Guácima are embracing these types of developments and the offerings are plentiful, ample and certainly cool.
Gated communities and condominiums are particularly popular among expats and foreign home buyers. In Costa Rica, a condo can be either an attached or stand-alone home, sometimes boasting a large yard or garden, in a gated community usually with common areas, pool(s) and other perks like tennis courts, playgrounds, work-out facilities, ranchos with BBQ and common gardens. In addition, this recent boom in residential construction has given rise to Loft and High-rise developments where the perks are endless along with the incredible views of the central valley. During the first half of 2016, construction was up 23.2% (by number of buildings) and by 21.7% (in area) from the same period last year, according to the Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censos de Costa Rica (INEC). With so much new construction and so little time, you need a savvy real estate expert to help you find the perfect home to fit your lifestyle!
