A Path to the Pura Vida Lifestyle in Costa Rica
This March we marked the one-year anniversary since the world came to a halt due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With the introduction of a vaccine, the world is slowly navigating its way back to some sort of normalcy. This is also true in the Guanacaste real estate market here with Cochal Realty.
Since the pandemic, people are thinking not about where they need to live because of work or school but where they truly want to live. The pandemic forced many to work from home and kids to study virtually, changing how families viewed their home structure and family life. Whether you’re dreaming of owning a house on the beach, or itching for a dream getaway with our amazing vacation rentals, the ‘Pura Vida’ life is calling for you!
As you make your way to Costa Rica, rest assured that health remains a top priority for all traveling and in searching of a new home. A case study of Costa Rica by Adiadne Labs in Boston, Massachusetts, stated the country boasts a primary health care system that has become a model for others around the world, with the third highest life expectancy in the Western Hemisphere. As our world continues to change with the continued threat of viruses, healthcare has become ever more important and present affecting every aspect of our lives. Access to healthcare is easy to find, while many providers speak both English and Spanish.
Do you have children? Looking to raise your family in Costa Rica or a new adventure the entire family may enjoy together? The Guanacaste region is close to Palo Verde and Arenal National Parks, which is a must on any bucket list with its extraordinary opportunities to observe wildlife including an array of exotic birds and visiting one of the more than 200 volcanoes scattered around the country. Feeling an urge for adventure? Whether its water and beach activities like surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, or sailing, all are within reach on any given day. If you would rather explore the tree tops zip-lining, horseback riding, or on foot hiking through the tropical forests and foothills of an active volcano, we will find the best fit for your adrenaline seeking adventures.
The country has also become a top attraction for Americans wishing to retire in Costa Rica. From a modern city to rural hillside villages, to Caribbean beaches and year-around tropical weather, the country boasts one of the highest standards of living in Central American with a slower pace of life, attracting many around the globe. Escape the hustle and bustle of city life, and all the stress that accompanies it, for an opportunity to live in a tropical paradise! The Guanacaste region is also a high attraction for its warmer temperatures compared to the higher altitude regions around San Jose that hover closer to temperatures in the mid-60s. Applying for residency is highly recommended for those interested in retiring in the country, with several options available to foreigners that are some of the best in Latin America!
While Costa Rica is one of the most expensive countries compared to others in Central America, the cost of living remains highly competitive as reported by International Living, to anything you will find in the United States or Canada for example. It is also one of the safest countries in the region. The US State Department considers Costa Rica among the safest to travel for US nationals. Services and infrastructure are high, giving access to high speed internet, cable or satellite television, and modern appliances, affording all the luxuries available in the US, Canada, or Europe.
