Where to live in the beach areas of Costa RicaAre you looking to live in the beach areas of Costa Rica? Of course, we can assist. GoDutch Realty is a member of the American European Real Estate Network, with affiliates in every beach area of the country.

But allow me to tell you a bit more about the lifestyle you will find when you live in the beach areas.

Each of the beach areas of Costa Rica has its own typical laid back lifestyle. Life at the beach in Costa Rica is a lot easier, though more expensive.

It is important you learn all you can about where to live in the beach areas of Costa Rica before moving to a beach area. Beach life in Costa Rica is very different from beach life in Florida, California or other places in the US for example. We do not have such large cities on the beaches of Costa Rica.

It’s important to understand that the lifestyle at the beach in Costa Rica is different. So do your due diligence before you buy beach property in Costa Rica.

Amenities

Therefore, if you’d like to enjoy to live at the beaches of Costa Rica, you will not be able to enjoy the same amenities as the Central Valley has to offer. I’m now talking about

  • Large shopping malls,
  • Quality hospitals,
  • Choice of schools for the children
  • Golf courses
  • Churches
  • Movie theaters (in some areas)
  • Museums, art galleries, and exhibitions

and other important amenities to some. Some beach areas, for example, do have a golf course, while others don’t. Therefore, it is very important you first find out if living at the beaches of Costa Rica is for you or not.

Climate and temps
