The Central American country also has rainforest, mountains and diverse geographic features. Many of the Costa Rica Beachfront real estate properties also offer attractive features such as un-chartered rainforest. How many other beachfront real estate areas can promote that they also come with virgin rain forested areas and / or are close in to ecological parks that have been set aside for preservation, recreation and pure enjoyment.

The Southern Pacific Zone

Unlike the northern parts of the country, the Southern Pacific Zone is a tropical paradise. When you see beautiful photos of the country with lush jungle coves and gorgeous sands you are usually viewing a photo from the southern zone areas.

One of the draws of the country is that you can still buy an established home on the beach for much lower prices than a comparable home in Florida or California. A condo near the beach may cost $40,000 in a less developed area, up to $150,000 in a more developed beachfront zone, and up to $500,000 for a beachfront condo right in popular, well-developed tourist destinations. Homes on the beach start at around $100,000, with homes on the Pacific coast generally more expensive than homes on the Caribbean.
