How Nevadans vacation in Costa Rica
Costa Rica has been among the top destinations for both tourists and long-term expatriates alike for over a decade. People from every walk of life visit this Central American country yearly to explore the nature, partake in the culture, and find a tropical escape. While you’ll meet people from all over your globe during your stay in Costa Rica, one group will be prominent among return visitors: Nevadans.
People from Nevada, especially around the Las Vegas area, have been returning to Costa Rica to take advantage of the well-developed luxury tourism industry. They have begun to invest in modern vacation condos and build tight-knit communities among like-minded condo owners. Their condos allow them to return to Costa Rican more often and spend their vacations in unique ways.
Where they go
While many tourists and long-term visitors reside in the more peaceful Central Valley, Nevadans tend to buy condos in beach towns, along either the Pacific or the Caribbean Coast. With nearby rainforests, mountains, and volcanic area, there are plenty of opportunities for exploration and activity. Highly populated beach towns with booming tourism industries can be found all around the Pacific Coast, as can quiet, residential areas, so potential buyers have their choice of environments. Often, families plan on renting out their condos as income properties when not in use, so staying near the high-tourism towns in Guanacaste or in the Nicoya Peninsula will be in their benefit.
Luxury condos can be found on either coast, but the Pacific Coast will bring more options and further modern details. The Pacific Coast has developed high-end condos in gated communities and on resort-style campuses. On the Caribbean Coast, beautiful condos with wide windows overlooking nature are available, but some of them may not be part of a retreat-style complex offering additional services. Both Coasts have their benefits, depending on your priorities for the purchase.
What they do
Costa Rica may only be the size of the US state of West Virginia, but there are endless opportunities to explore. Nevadan condo owners may choose to take a couple days excursion around the country, but always come back to their home base. This gives them the opportunity to surf or hike in the mornings, spend the afternoons at the beach or on the complex, and always find a beach front restraint at night to enjoy the sunset and some tropical dishes.
Depending on the complex, there may be communal pools, tropical golf courses, and spa services available.

Rent vs Buy
While many visitors prefer to book hotels or rent homes during their first trips to Costa Rica, eventually some decide to buy condos. Costa Rican has both a stable government as well as a stable real estate scene, and while new incomers can legally own homes without a visa status, the investment can quickly prove worth its weight.
