Throughout the 2000's, Guanacaste saw a development boom which subsequently resulted in a huge expansion of tourism also. Though affected by the housing crash in the USA, Guanacaste remains the most prominent area in the country for beachfront real estate. Luxurious beach-front mansions dot the region however there are also a great selection of homes and condos which can still be purchased or rented at affordable prices. Prices have dipped as low as ever in the Guanacaste market but with confidence returning amongst savvy investors, the resurgence is mounting which makes buying real estate in Costa Rica a wise choice. For anyone interested in Guanacaste, now is the time to start researching the possibilities available - which are plentiful!

The San Jose real estate scene has been the most resilient of all markets in the country. Due to the cost of property, the climate and its location, the San Jose province was the least affected area by the global housing crisis that primarily affected the USA. San Jose and the Central Valley at large, is the most popular region for expatriates and retirees. Not to mention the area (Juan Santamaria Airport) is the principal arrival point for many taking their Costa Rica vacations.
