Costa Rican Real Estate If you're considering moving to Costa Rica, you have a wide variety of choices to make as Costa Rica has so many different beautiful environments to offer.

The island even has large cities that have been over developed and densely populated. These large cities have been dominated by apartment buildings and large hotel chains. Depending on whether you like living right on top of your neighbor, literally, or you don't mind having to use a boat to get to the mainland to get to the mainland to get supplies every month or so will probably influence your decision on what area of the country you would choose to reside in. If you prefer living high up in the mountains, you will most likely prefer to live in the central part of the country where the highlands stretch from the northwest corner of the country all the way down the center to the southeast corner.
