Costa Rica Property

Costa Rica is a paradise mecca for many visiting Americans. It is only a short plane flight away. The climate is amazing. The beaches are unspoilt and tropical. The sea is like a bath. The cost of living is inexpensive. The atmosphere is relaxing. The list goes on...

Costa Rica is a perfect location to get some power relaxing done. With flights to San Jose from as little as $350 is does not cost too much either.

The most popular parts of Costa Rica are the coastal resorts. Whether you want to chose the Caribbean side in the East or the more rugged West coast is a matter of preference.

Many Americans after visiting Costa Rica a few times decide that buying their own property in their favourite area. In recent years this has become easier and easier. Whether its a large villa, a house or even an apartment you will probably find its easier than you think.

When and if you buy a property for sale in Costa Rica you will be using a different system to the US. It is a Spanish based system using a publicly appointed Notary. This is an idependantly hired official whose job it is to check that transactions are carried in a fair manner. He or she will check over all the paper work and monies changing hands and make sure there is no underhandedness going on.
