Properties in Costa Rica

Many people dream of a holiday where they can enjoy their time in a peaceful hammock with a stunning view of the ocean; well, for Digital Nomads, whatever setting they choose can become their workplace if they have their laptop and good internet access. Digital Nomads have become a post-COVID reality and Costa Rica has thus been a place where they find comfort and are able to experience the famous ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle while they maintain their businesses or jobs from afar.

Ever since Costa Rica reopened its doors back in November 1 2020 to all 50 states, Digital Nomads have been packing their bags  (and laptops) and flying to the different beach towns the country has to offer.  Be it  Nosara , Santa Teresa, Tamarindo or the Limón coast, people have no problem staying in these places for many months and still be in touch with their duties , and that is why this law will have a mayor impact in the number of expats wanting to come and live in Costa Rica.

This past Monday in Costa Rica’s legislative assembly, the first debate regarding the passing of the law to attract Digital Nomads ended  with a 41 to 1 voting in favor. The “Law to Attract International Workers and Remote Service Providers”, or Law No. 22215, is still under revision, but its main goal is to allow Digital Nomads to legally stay in the country for a year with the possibility of extending their stay for an additional year in case it suits them. Moreover, the beneficiaries will be exonerated from local income tax payment and any import taxes that can result from bringing personal devices that are necessary to do their jobs. In case you want to rent a car while you are here, don’t worry, your valid foreign drivers license would  be accepted while you enjoy your stay in the country.

One of the restrictions that must be noted is that people who are under this condition will not be able to do paid work in the national territory different from the one that  has been registered once the expat has arrived.

After the first debate, the legislative presidency has now fixed a date for the second debate taking place Tuesday the 13th of July. Stay tuned for more news regarding advances of the law.

Why You Should Buy a Home in A Golf Estate

Why You Should Buy a Home in A Golf Estate

Properties in Costa Rica

Living near a golf course is a dream come true for avid golfers. Imagine waking up in the morning to a scenic view, a relatively quiet neighborhood, and being a few steps away from your favorite sport.

Buying a house in a golf estate sounds pleasing to the ears. In fact, you might just find your dream house near a lush green field. Well, Costa Rica boasts some of the best golf estates. Whether you’re an avid golfer or someone who appreciates being near lush landscapes, here are some reasons that will make you want to purchase your own home in a golf estate in Costa Rica:

Reduced chances of having rowdy neighbors

One main concern of house buyers is how their neighbors would be. In fact, bad neighbors are a common red flag among home buyers. Since your home is located near or in a golf course, the likelihood of having noisy, rowdy neighbors is reduced.

However, it is still imperative for you to do research on the neighborhood. Homebuyers who do their research well are more satisfied with their decisions and are less likely to suffer from buyer’s remorse.

A long-term investment

From an investor’s perspective, buying into a residential golf estate is a smart move. Golf property only accounts for less than 4% of the total real estate, and its exclusivity makes them stand out in the marketplace. Having a property near a golf course is a factor that quickly enhances residential values, such as waterfront setting, the overall atmosphere, and elevation.

And if you’re thinking of reselling the property, best believe the resell value is high because of its high-quality residential values!

Beautiful views

Who says living near a golf course would only benefit golfers? Anyone will love to live with a well-maintained view. Golf courses pride themselves on their green grounds, clean ponds, tree-lined fairways, and the like, so best bet you’ll have a lovely sight to wake up to every day.

Play golf anytime

If you’re an avid golfer, you will primarily benefit from this feature. Imagine waking up to the view of the field every single day! When you come to think of it, you just have to prepare for a few minutes, pack your golf iron sets and other essentials in your bag, and spend a few minutes walking to the fairway. It’s so easy, stress-free, and convenient!

If you’re a beginner, it will allow you to try a new sport. If you want to get into golf, you can check out this great list of beginner-friendly putters.

Some golf clubs allow membership for the residents in or around the golf course, while some offer memberships at a discounted price. Make sure to look into this possible perk.

Justified pricing

Most people think that living in a residential golf estate is an unattainable luxury. But what they don’t know is that properties on residential golf estates are only a bit more expensive than homes in neighboring suburbs. We believe it’s better to pay a little more for a home that promises a happier lifestyle, more peaceful neighbors, and a breathtaking view.


Owning a house near a golf course has a lot of perks. If you think these reasons have convinced you enough to purchase a home in a golf estate in Costa Rica, make sure to discuss your plans with your real estate agent.
