Costa Rica, wealth of nature, culture and political stability

Costa Rica at a Glance

Located in Central America, Costa Rica is a small gem placed in between the continents of North and South America, and the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This critical geographic placement, coupled with its tender age of only 300 million years makes Costa Rica one of the most ecologically diverse places in the world. Its twelve climatic zones host 5% of the world's flora and fauna, with new discoveries cataloged daily. This enticing array of earthly splendor is enhanced more by its long standing political stability, demilitarization, and high standard of living. Of its four and a half million inhabitants, over fifty thousand are welcomed foreigners who have chosen Costa Rica for its beauty, perfect climate, wonderful people, and affordable cost of living in a stable society. Costa Rica is also one of the world's top tourist destinations, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors annually. One has a choice of vacationing in an all inclusive resort on a breathtaking beach or a secluded mountain getaway and reveling in the awesome beauty of one of Costa Rica's thirteen National Parks. Whether observing the turtle migration in Tortugero, or bathing in the thermal waters under Arenal Volcano, a visit to Costa Rica guarantees an adventure for all.


Buying Property in Costa Rica
Basic but important steps
 

Puriscal Real Estate. ImageIt is no secret that very few laws and restrictions oversee the Real Estate business in Costa Rica. Therefore, there are some basic but essential procedures you can follow to insure that you obtain the best value with your Real Estate investment, and that a successful transaction is achieved. This includes dealing directly with the seller. An agent should assist both of you, communicating offers, counter offers and terms until both parties walk away with a satisfactory agreement.

No amount of experience in dealing with real estate in another country can be insurance against a scam or being victimized by the common practice of "Sobre Precio"(over pricing). The best way to protect yourself when purchasing real estate in Costa Rica is to assume a very active role in the entire process.

We at Green Mango S.A. take pride in our business ethics and the service we provide. Our clients rest assured that they have negotiated the very best price and terms directly with the sellers, and have been thoroughly involved in every aspect of the transaction.

Arenal Volcano National Park
 

 

Arenal Volcano. ImageCosta Rica is packed full of exciting and beautiful destinations and by far the most thrilling is Arenal Volcano and National Park. Nothing can prepare you for the awesome sight of red hot molten rocks tumbling down the mountain side and the rumbling vibrations of this towering giant. The incredibly fertile area surrounding Arenal is abundant in lush vegetation with innumerable bird species and other wild life. Several days may be enjoyed here filled with walks through the rain forest, horseback rides, canopy tours, world renowned water sports, and of course relaxing hours soaking in the natural thermal pools. The gently rolling country side is also ideal for cycling and scenic drives. Over all Arenal Volcano is one destination which should not be missed.
