Bejuco Real Estate
(sorry i am taking a wait and see attitude on Esterillos)
One of the most popular regions for property seekers not concerned with "rental income" is found on the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica about 15 minutes south of Jaco, and 40 minutes north of Manuel Antonio. This section of the Central Pacific is renowned for its spectacular cascading coastal landscape and pristine beaches. This area includes Playas Esterillos Oeste and Esterillos Este, Playa Bejuco beach and the area where few north americans live, the old town of Parrita.
Life in and around Esterillos, Bejuco, and Parrita offers the quaint smaller beach town feel. For this reason many retirees and soon-to-be retires have moved in to the area. One of our favorite developments is called Costa del Sol, where nice modern 3 bedroom homes start as low as $199,000.
The beach areas in Esterillos are divided into Esterillos Oeste and Esterillos Este, and Bejuco beach and are famous for being some of Costa Rica's most beautiful and expansive beaches. These beaches have earned the coveted Blue Flag award. WARNING: BEACHFRONT HERE
IS IN THE "ZONA MARITIMA" the dreaded Concession zone! See my Buying FAQs as to
why i don't recommend this beachfront, even though its beautiful.....
These days the market has slowed down in Esterillos este and oeste, but the beach is still lovely and there are some great opportunites here that may prove to be smart investments in the far off future.
HOWEVER, IF YOU WANT CONSISTENT RENTAL INCOME, this area is really
not for you. Due to its distance from Jaco and Manuel Antonio, its hard to get weekend rentals.
I do know honest realtors that live in this area, and i will be happy to recommend them to you!
