First we would like to thank all of our clients and home owners in Playa Hermosa who donated funds for the improvement of roads and paving of the potholes. Collectively, we can always make a difference and continue the effort to improve our community in Costa Rica.
RE/MAX, Los Tres Amigos' team of professionals would like to be the first to welcome you to Costa Rica. We are located in Playa Hermosa Costa Rica, right in the center of Costa Rica's fastest growing real estate market. The northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica is experiencing a flood of real estate investment. Savvy investors are arriving daily to buy up property bargains.
Playa Hermosa is part of a group of beaches that make up what is known as the Golfo Papagayo (Gulf of Papagayo). This area includes: Playa Ocotal, Playa Coco, Playa Hermosa and Playa Panama. Costa Rica is very reminiscent of Hawaii in the 60s and 70s with active volcanoes, spectacular beaches and a great climate.
Additionally, Costa Rica is recognized world-wide for its biodiversity, with over 5% of the world's plant and animal species. Although tourists have been coming here for years, just recently investors from all over the globe are increasingly attracted to the peaceful lifestyle and excellent infrastructure that Costa Rica has to offer. Over the last few years, Guanacaste has been the focus of that investment, and most recently, the Gulfo Papagayo. The Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia is only 20 minutes away, with daily flights from Delta, Continental and American, US Airways with plans for America West and Northwest as well. Add to that newly paved roads, municipal water, new developments, excellent private schools, first rate medical and dental services, great golf courses, world-class fishing and scuba diving, pristine beaches and some of the best surfing in the world and you begin to see the allure.
The Four Seasons Hotel has opened their newest gem a $350,000,000 resort with a CRGA rated Arnold Palmer Golf Course directly across the Golfo Papagayo from RE/MAX Los Tres Amigos offices. A short drive away from the RE/MAX Los Tres Amigos office is the new Papagayo Golf and Country Club. There are currently plans for over a dozen resort hotels to be built in the Papagayo area including Ritz Carlton and Hyatt Hotels. A number of Marinas are also in the planning and building stages. All this and more have made Costa Rica one of the most popular real estate investment targets in the world.
Most international investment is focused on the north Pacific region of Costa Rica, for good reason:
PROXIMITY TO THE LIBERIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. The new Liberia airport, located just 20 minutes from the Papagayo area, has just recently opened and is expanding at an almost mind boggling rate. Just 6 years ago in 2004, there were 3 weekly scheduled flights into Liberia, all with Delta. Now there are over 54 flight per week, with almost all major airlines arriving from most major cities. Now tourists and investors can arrive in a matter of only hours to our area and be on the beach within minutes of exiting the plane. There are currently plans for massive development of the area around the airport, from Holiday Inn Express to a Hampton Inn and numerous malls and shopping centers.
GREAT WEATHER AND BEACHES. The Papagayo and the Northwest coast of Costa Rica has the best weather in the country, with over 320 days of sunshine. The beaches of the Papagayo are the best in the country, as they are the only beaches that are not surfing beaches, making them excellent for resort and residential tourism. Snorkeling, scuba, SPORT-fishing and a number of other water activities are very popular here in the area.
LARGE EX-PAT COMMUNITY. The Papagayo area is known as a community of Americans and Canadians. Many people choose this as their home or retirement as there are a number of foreigners that live here.
INFRASTRUCTURE Due to all of the growth and development in this area, the Papagayo has some of the best roads in the country. It is one of only a small percentage of areas that has access to municipal water and high speed internet, as well as all of the comforts of home. There are dozens of restaurants in the area and shopping as well, and with all of the malls and marinas being built, those comforts will only increase.
