The Most Valuable Beachfront Real Estate of Costa Rica

If you have visited the Gold Coast of Guancaste, then you have undoubtedly dreamed of owning beachfront real estate in Costa Rica. It is inevitable that tourists often become home owners after only a few short visits to our unforgettable tropical oasis. The coast of Costa Rica boasts amazing backdrops of palm tree lined beaches, romantic beachfront waterfalls, and shimmering azure seas.

Naturally, when compared with destinations all over the world, the beachfront real estate in Costa Rica is some of the most sought after of all properties. However, compared to first world premier destinations, the market prices here offer seemingly unbelievable bargains. Beachfront lands in northern Guanacaste start at an affordable $20 per square foot.

Here at Playa Negra Realty, we are often asked to explain the difference between “titled fee simple land” at the beachfront and “concession land” at the beachfront. It’s an important question and the answer may make a huge difference in deciding which property is right for you.

Most beachfront real estate in Costa Rica is considered concession property because it falls within the maritime zone (also known as Zona Maritima Terrestre). As stated in the law, the maritime zone includes islands, keys, cliffs, mangroves, estuaries, as well as all the land or natural formation standing out over the ocean level within the territorial sea of the Republic. The maritime zone is the area that begins at the median tide line and extends 200 meters inland or about 650 feet. The first 50 meters is considered the inalienable public zone and is available for use to anyone who finds themselves in the country. No constructions are ever permitted in this zone.
