Search for Luxury Homes in Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Are you looking for Costa Rica luxury homes? KRAIN Costa Rica is proud to offer some of the most spectacular properties on the market!

Costa Rica may be the most perfect location on the planet. Sure, we’re fairly biased because we live and work here. But then again, we live and work here because Costa Rica is idyllic.

Maybe it’s the misty volcanic peaks reaching for clear skies, or the majestic waterfalls plummeting toward shimmering lapis pools that makes Costa Rica so special. Perhaps it’s the myriad outdoor activities like rainforest hikes, biking, ziplining, world-class surfing and snorkeling, the many farm-to-table restaurants or the bourgeoning sustainable tourism that’s really the draw.

Most likely it’s the Pura Vida way of life. Did you know in survey after survey, Costa Ricans rank as some of the healthiest and happiest people on the planet? That’s not a coincidence!

The truth is, if you’ve ever dreamed of living in paradise, Costa Rica will never disappoint. Imagine a life where you step out onto your balcony in the morning and spot a scarlet macaw swooping overhead. Or you pass a sloth snoozing on a tree as you make your way into the nearby village to pick up a delicious bottle of local wine. Here, your days are filled with what seems like effortless peace and your nights are filled with gentle breezes and starry skies.

Whether you’re a retiree, young family, or just someone who desires a simpler way of life, Costa Rica has what you’re looking for. Get in contact with us today to find your dream home
