Hi out there, we will probably buy a property in the next 2 months on the caribbean side of this wonderful country. If anyone is interessted in buying a piece of land for cheap or looking around with us for more propertys to choose from in the followeing 2 months you are welcome to contact us. In our listing we have already 3 properties to choose from if we don't find better ones. We are living in Costa Rica for more than 2 and a half years. My main purpose was looking out for land that fits our criteria. The southern caribbean area is still cheap enough to buy several hectares (=2.2 acres) of land without spending enormous amounts of money. We are talking about prices around $4000-6000 per hectar, close enough to turistic and alternative areas like Puerto Viejo and Cahuita but far enough from the civilization troubles for nature lovers. For contact and more infos have a look on our webpage that will be updated in some days: www.rohkostarica.de (in German & English) Pura Vida!

Sounds really good to me, but yes, go and see it, and maybe even ask the opinion of a realtor that knows the area (for potential problems). Good luck! This is exciting!

Comment by Catherine Forest on January 2, 2013 at 10:09am

Oh and also check the soil density to know if you can actually build a house on it (ask for a soil quality test...).

Comment by Catherine Forest on January 2, 2013 at 10:08am

Andrew, it really depends. This is price in itself is good, but there is a lot to know about that land. Is there a view? Is there electricity? Is there a road that leads to it (and it what state)? Is it all in hills? Is there a good water drainage? Neighbors? Water source?

Comment by Michael on December 17, 2012 at 4:09am

no work my friend, or 2$-2,5$/per hour everybody in this country!

We found a good land for really good price, please call us when you are down here: 8570 8541

Dear Andrew,

We have been in costa rica now for 5months, las tumbas is nice, there are many beautiful people, land is around 50 000$/ha if you don't want to be to out in the valley. In las tumbas you have jesse who has amazing variety of fruit trees, more than 150 and he begin to have fruits and sell little trees. (he lives close to ecoloco for when you are there). there is a lot of people in las tumbas, in platanillo and also some in pedregoso, chiripo valley and more discret ones a little south of san isidro. But Organic forget about it, it is really really hard, you have to really really know people, buy to trustfull foreigners or be only on oranges. As spanish people we just merge easely and deeply with the tico community, and know how much and to everything chimical are put. At the market in san isidro you have a little corner where it is organic a few veggies, a lot of greens and some fruits but forget about the rest, so much time we trusted and get head ackes and toxicity symptoms through chimical, you have to grow your own as fast as you can! costa rica country number 1 of the world in use of chimicals : 50kg/person/year. But anyway I woudn't move for any other place in the world! ;-)

This is near where we lived last winter for 5 months (we were near Uvita on the coast, but drove to San Isidro every week to go to the farmer's market: San Isidro is actually THE best farmer's market in all Costa Rica). Platanillo is awesome! Not too far from the beach (20-30 minutes drive to Dominical and of of our favorite beaches, Guapil and Matapalo) and 10/15 minutes drive to San Isidro. In Tinamastes and the nearby mountains, there are a bunch of cool people, raw fooders and hippies living off grid. I can send you the monthly newsletter of the area if you give me your email. I still receive it. You'll see all the good stuff that is happening in that area!

In the guanacaste region right now. Any people there to meet, farms to visit or other nice places and foodsources?
Comment by Catherine Forest on November 15, 2012 at 5:45am

Land is not cheap in CR. You can find everything at all sorts of price. I would connect with a good realtor and be VERY careful when doing transactions. I heard so many horror stories... We have a friend in the Ojochal area that I would trust to buy land with. His name is John Collins (Ventana Homes).

Comment by Superhuman on November 15, 2012 at 3:22am

That is cool. I really need to look into buying a land then and getting myself together. Would be fantastic.

How much land do you need just for a litle house? and i would love to plant some fruit trees ;D
