Real Property Included

Location:

The Guanacaste region’s Pacific coast is experiencing strong growth in tourism, foreign residents, foreign investment and commercial development. A key support to this growth has been the building and continued expansion of Costa Rica’s Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR), located about 20 minutes from the Guanacaste coastline. During the first four months of this year, the airport’s air traffic increased 30.5 percent compared to the same period last year, according to information released by Coriport, the airport’s manager. Currently, the airport is a home for such names as Alaska Airlines, Southwest, United Airlines, British Airways and the British vacation charter airline Thomson. All have served LIR this year and made possible the increase of air traffic to Costa Rica by 8 percent. The increasing number of tourists swelled by 9 % in 2015, a key contributor to the national GDP growth of 2.8 %.

The Papagayo and Playas del Coco areas of Guanacaste have seen consistent growth in real estate values and tourism of about 20% per year for the last five years. The region is expected to see this same kind of growth over the next five years as hundreds of millions of dollars will continue to be invested in the region. Playas del Coco is becoming a foreigner’s paradise, offering extraordinary vacations and a lifestyle enriched by bio-diversity, tropical weather and easy access. The increasing tourist demand and growing real estate boom have brought a much needed attention to the rising demand for lodging, limited selection of quality restaurants, the quality of service delivery in the leisure services industry. There are no rooftop bars located at the beach, and there are no beach resorts in Playas Del Coco.

Playas del Coco is the closest beach resort area to the Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR).
