Costa Rica

Downtown San Jose Costa RicaGap Investors chose Costa Rica because it is one of best environments to be investing in right now. The value is good, development and construction are booming, and the economic climate makes investing something you want to consider.

Lush vegetation, jungles, tropical plant life, and awe-inspiring volcanoes, as well as sun, dreamlike beaches (both the Pacific and Caribbean) and surf, are all attracting tourists and property investors.

The average temperature in the Central Valley is 72F or 22C year-round. The temperature near the coasts and on the beaches is around 90F or 32C, also year-round. The abundance of micro-climates has produced one of the richest fauna and flora found on the planet. The greenery and climate make for an everlasting spring in the valley and an everlasting summer at the coasts. There is no cold winter and the sun appears every morning with very few exceptions, which makes it perfect for golf enthusiasts.

Costa Rica is the most sought-after Latin American investment destination today. The reasons are numerous. An investment in Costa Rica is much more certain than an investment in Hawaii real estate was 30 years ago. Costa Rica’s current prosperity is being fueled by the migration of affluent baby boomers from around the world seeking their own piece of paradise.

Costa Rica is one of the most secure and stable of all the Central American countries. It is the only nation in Central America with industries such as tourism and technology that surpass agriculture as the main source of revenue. Tourism is one of the main economic activities in Costa Rica. About 3 million tourists generated over $2.5 billion to the economy each year.

The country constitutionally abolished its standing army in 1948. The savings were used in health and education and resulted in Costa Rica boasting literacy rates and expected lifespans comparable to developed Western nations.

The U.S. and Costa Rica have a history of friendly relations. As many as 40,000 U.S. citizens reside in Costa Rica and over 600,000 U.S. citizens visit the country annually. Important numbers are also applicable to residents from Canada and Western Europe.

This not only lends stability to the economy but also takes a safe and secure approach to globalization and development process, making Costa Rica a more sought-after investment destination. Check us out on Facebook HERE
