The Central Valley is the center of Costa Rica due to its geographical location, culture and economic activities. The Central Valley is also one of the most popular places for foreigners to live because of its lovely, eternal-spring-like climate and many other factors. But the region also offers the best access to services and infrastructure in the country by far, including top-notch hospitals, an international airport, plenty of shopping, internet and cable connections, and public transportation. In addition to (or, more likely, because of) the preceding, the Central Valley is also the country’s business center. The area offers a wide variety of housing and living options for every lifestyle.
The Central Pacific is one of Costa Rica’s jewels. It extends from Puntarenas in the north to the Barú River in the south. The closest and most accessible beaches to San José are found in this area. The beaches are sunny year-round, the weather is hot and the ocean warm. Whether you want to retire or just live in a tropical paradise, the Central Pacific Coast has something for you. Some of the outdoor activities the area offers are: golfing, sport fishing, yachting, canopy tours, river rafting, parasailing, hang gliding, mountain biking, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, bird watching and a lot more.

Northern Costa Rica’s crown jewel is the 48-square-mile, man-made Lake Arenal is northwest of San Carlos. It is sursounded by rolling hills covered with pastures and patches of tropical forest. The very active Arenal Volcano can often be seen the distance. As a recent visitor said, “Lake Arenal seems like a tropical version of Lake Tahoe with surrounding landscape and beauty right of of Switzerland.”
Lake Arenal is the largest lake in Costa Rica and the second-biggest in Central America, after nearby Lake Nicaragua. It was created to be a reservoir when engineers flooded a large valley. The lake was an engineering feat for Costa Rica at the time and generates 70% of the country’s electricity.
There are many enjoyable things to do around Lake Arenal. The lake and surrounding area offer excellent fishing, sailing, hiking, windsurfing, mountain biking, bird-watching and other outdoor activities. With all the area has to offer, it is not surprising that this area is rapidly becoming popular with foreign residents.
Land around the lake is readily available. Prices have been slashed up to 40-50% ONLY for our clients in some cases for lots with breath-taking panoramic view.
*Complimentary lodging and transportation provided if property is purchased. If property is NOT purchased a fee will be charged for the realtor’s time, work and added expenses.
