Those seeking a luxury home location where development is carefully controlled and in harmony with the environment are buying real estate in Papagayo Costa Rica.
Papagayo has become synonymous with the Four Seasons Resort, the Grand Papagayo in Playa Buena and Allegro Papagayo in Playa Manzanillo. But these hotels are just part of a larger development project taking place in the breath taking Papagayo region.
In reality, Papagayo actually refers to the 'Golfo de Papagayo' (Papagayo Gulf), a body of water that stretches from Playa Ocotal in the South, to the Peninsula Santa Elena in the North which is part of the Santa Rosa National Park. The Gulf contains one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Costa Rica.
The 'Papagayo Project' specifically, is the region from Playa Panama, Panama and around the Culebra Bay to the Peninsula de Papagayo. You may also see signs referring to the 'Polo Turístico Golfo de Papagayo', tourist pole of the Papagayo Gulf. This is where development is taking place to build resort hotels (all-inclusive mainly) and rental or private villas. With the Four Seasons and Occidental Hotels groups leading the way, other property developers have been encouraged to bring their wealth to this region. The Mandrian Oriental and Sol Melia have both announced plans to begin construction this year. With the Liberia International $35 million dollar expansion, the addition of the CIMA Hospita and the Clinica Biblica Hospital, medical tourism is on the brink of exploding in this direct area.
Unlike over-built up beach resort areas like Cancun, Acapulco and Conzumel in Mexico, developers of the Papagayo Project are working hand in hand with the Costa Rican government to make sure that development occurs in such a way as to cause the least impact on the environment. Ensuring that the very reason for visiting this beautiful area is protected and nurtured as much as possible. Careful planning in which nature and luxury resorts can coexist is perhaps the main attraction of Papagayo, Costa Rica.
All eyes are directed at the Papagayo Region including the largest Real Estate Board in Costa Rica, CCCBR who have established a Papagayo Regional Office at the Hacienda Del Mar - Remax Prestige Ocean Properties Sales Center in Playa Panama. With well over 550 members they too see the growth potential of the area and can now offer San Jose realtors qualified realtor referral options on area properties.
I have sailed the waters of the Gulf of Papagayo for over 16 years, exploring Costa Rica's natural beauty by sea and this is truly one of the most incredible areas I have ever seen.
