This development parcel is located in Playa Grande, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, in Santa Cruz county. This oceanfront property with ocean view is situated in the tropical dry forest of Costa Rica. The land area of this development parcel is a total of 16.08 hectare (39.73 acre).
This 16-hectare (40-acre) parcel of titled beachfront land presents a distinctive development prospect in Costa Rica. Its exceptional value stems from the scarcity of titled oceanfront land in the country, coupled with its prime location in a thriving region.
Situated along Playa Grande in Guanacaste, one of Costa Rica's rapidly expanding beach communities, the property offers ideal conditions for various development visions, whether it be a signature surf hotel, an exclusive residential community, or a luxury health retreat. The land features a completely flat topography, confirmed utility access, and clearly defined developable space according to legal parameters.
Since 2021, residential lot and home prices in Grande have more than doubled, driven by several factors. Firstly, the globally renowned Playa Grande surf break attracts surfers from around the world, consistently boosting tourism in the community.
Secondly, significant environmental and water-related issues were successfully addressed, paving the way for community development. Simultaneously, the influx of expat families and digital nomads into Costa Rica during the post-COVID relocation boom from 2021 to 2023 further fueled the area's growth. Clear boundaries for the national park and developable areas were established, leading to a surge in construction within the community.
Thirdly, Grande benefits from its location in a corridor with essential amenities that attract expats, including private schools, healthcare facilities, and a well-connected international airport.
The noticeable rise in private school enrollment in the area reflects a broader trend in Guanacaste—more individuals than ever are interested in visiting or relocating to Costa Rica. The government's pro-foreign-investment policies have created a region ripe with opportunities and a growing audience, with 2023 poised to be a record year for international arrivals in Costa Rica.
