Nick Halverson Costa Rica Video Series

Part I in a new video series

Nick Halverson, the CEO of Las Villas de San Buenas, was recently interviewed by Brad Gudim where they briefly discussed Costa Rica real estate. This is the first of the Nick Halverson Costa Rica Video Series. He will be recording more videos each month and will share great information about owning and investing in Costa Rica real estate. This short video (about 10 minutes) provides some background information about Nick Halverson and why he has chosen to develop land in Costa Rica. (LinkedIn profile).

Nick has over nine years of buying, selling and developing land in Costa Rica’s Southern Pacific zone and will be putting on Costa Rica real estate seminars in 2015. If you are interested in joining us for our first seminar in Costa Rica in 2015, or simply want information about visiting Costa Rica, please contact us today.

Stay tuned for the next in the Nick Halverson Costa Rica video series.

Nine Private Parks-Green Spaces in Phase 1

Las Villas de San Buenas has several phases of development. In our Residential Lots (Phase I) we have approximately 130 lots in addition to nine parks and green spaces. Some of the parks are designated for children and will have playground equipment. These parks are private and only can be used by residents of Las Villas de San Buenas.

This area of the development is managed under condominium law, which means it is a gated community and will have sidewalks and walking trails throughout. It is a great real estate option for those looking to live full time in Costa Rica as well as for those who simply want a home in a safe, fun and incredibly beautiful country.

Welcome to Osa Costa Rica

Osa Costa Rica

Las Villas de San Buenas is located in one of the most beautiful locations on Earth – Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula . Osa Costa Rica is considered to be one of the most biologically intense place in the world. Along with the largest mangrove forest in the world, miles of beaches and countless species of flowers, wildlife and birds, Osa Costa Rica is truly paradise.

We are located just 1 mile (2 km) from the Costanera Highway (highway in the photo below), in the small, peaceful town of San Buenaventura. For more information about our location visit this page. osa costa rica aerial costanera|

 

New Rules for Entering Panama

Costa Rica has implemented a new departure tax at all land border crossings. Historically there was no charge for crossing any land boundaries. As many visitors know there is a departure tax (now $29) for all travelers leaving via an airplane at both international airports in Costa Rica. This will only effect the people that are perpetual tourists. If you come to look at the affordable Costa Rica real estate options we offer you won’t be crossing into Panama or Nicaragua as we have villas for rent in Costa Rica and you have 90 days in the country before you need to leave. That should give you time to check things out.sustainable communities costa rica

The U.S. Embassy wishes to advise U.S. citizen travelers that there have been recent reports of Costa Rican authorities being unable to accept payment of the exit tax at land borders for technical reasons. Costa Rica charges a $7 exit tax for land border crossings. The new tax came into effect on December 2, 2013, and consists of a $5 exit tax and a $2 luggage search fee, regardless of whether the traveler has luggage or not. Travelers are encouraged to pay the $7 fee at a branch of Banco Credito Agricola (Bancredito) or another designated payment collection point BEFORE they arrive at the border station to avoid potential last minute difficulties crossing into Panama or Nicaragua. The charge is to be used to finance improvements at border crossings.

It should also be mentioned as a reminder that upon re-entering Costa Rica you will be asked to show your exit ticket out of the country. Without an exit ticket you may get turned down to re-enter Costa Rica. When coming to Costa Rica some airlines will not let you board the plane if you do not show them proof of a return or continuing on ticket to another destination.
