Pura Vida Realty is located in Playa Grande in the northern province of Guanacaste in the heart of Costa Rica’s “Gold Coast”. This area that is the country’s most popular tourist destination with every luxury and amenity anyone could ever need. Playa Grande is home to Las Baulas National Marine Park. One of only two maritime parks in Guanacaste dedicated solely to the protection of the endangered leather back turtle. Park officials offer guided nightly tours during the mating season (Nov.-Apr.) in a non-obstructive manner. It’s this protected status that makes Playa Grande the gem of Guanacaste. Costa Rican law prohibits the construction on any large-scale development projects in Playa Grande due to its National Park status. Consequently, the big developers have passed on Playa Grande making it ideal for the seclusive minded investor. It is assured a future without mega-projects and overcrowding and will remain in its pristine state for decades. Based on this alone, land prices are already some of the highest in the area even though we have yet to experience a major growth spurt! Prices will only double and triple in the next five years as the surrounding areas are built up. In the future, Playa Grande will not only be a refuge for sea turtles, but for people seeking refuge of there own. Another bonus of Playa Grande is the weather. In the high season, we have a weather pattern known as the Papagayos forms from November to May and are unique to northern Guanacaste. It consists of a daily 10-15 mph refreshing offshore wind, brilliant sunshine and an average temperature of 86°f (30°c). Rain is not an option! Even during the “Green Season” (June-Oct.), the wind stays offshore until noon with a refreshing daily afternoon shower.

Costa Rica has already well-established international reputation as a destination for eco-tourism and recreational activities. In addition, golf has recently experienced a boom in Guanacaste with 3 new courses opened in the area in the last two years. Just outside of Playa Grande is the Royal Pacific Golf and Country Club. An 18 hole course that is a true test of golf with rolling hills and spectacular views of the countryside and ocean. We also have 2 major championship golf courses ranked #1 and #2 and in Costa Rica just 20 minutes from Grande. The Melia Conchal Resort and Hacienda Penilla are two amazing courses that we are currently listing for our golf course minded investors. Both courses have amazing views and private beaches and offer lots, condos, and commercial properties. We here at PVR can take you out for a day of golf on the gold coast to see for yourself all that this special place has to offer.
