Welcome to the

Papagayo Region of Costa Rica

Specializing in

Playa Hermosa, Playa Ocotal, Playas Del CocoPlaya Panama, Papagayo Region and Playa Matapalo

My name is Michael Mills and I have been residing in Playas del Coco and Playa Hermosa areas of Guanacaste for the last 25 years introducing people from all over the world to this beautiful area of Costa Rica. Having traveled Costa Rica from North to South, East Coast to West Coast over the years, I can tell you there is no better a location than this area in Guanacaste. Guanacaste's diverse ecosystems, natural beauty and friendly people captured my heart on my first visit as it has for thousands of visitors now relocating here or finding a vacation property to spend time for periods throughout the year.

Relocating from Vancouver Island, British Columbia it did not take much time to adjust to all year round balmy weather and warm Pacific waters.  Retirement was not an option so I took a real estate course, bought a catamaran, started offering snorkeling/sunset tours while selling real estate from the deck of the Spanish Dancer.

Today I am the managing broker for Tres Amigos Realty Group & Prestige Ocean Properties, Playas Del Coco  and Playa Panama offices and loving every minute.

Liberia Airport has been the key to growth and development for this area. It was not by accident I selected this area to live knowing an international airport was soon to become a reality. Twenty five minutes from clearing customs you can be in your condo or villa enjoying a cocktail while watching a magnificent sunset. We have the least amount of rain and the most sunshine, the best roads, fiber optic and calm rip tide free swimming beaches for families and seniors. 

This area has also attracted companies like Coca-Cola with the largest plant in Central America, Pricesmart (North America’s Costco), Walmart, Waldorf Astoria, Playa Hermosa, Ritz Carlton Peninsula Papagayo, One & Only Hotels Playa Hermosa, Six Senses Hotels Peninsula Papagayo, NYA Liberia Airport, Discovery Land Company Zapotal, Exclusive Resorts, Four Seasons Papagayo, Planet Hollywood and the list goes on. Investment here from projects just mentioned confirm that these investors have done their due diligence recognizing that our area of Costa Rica is the place to be. Liberia Airport expansions are continuous including new private jet facilities to handle the increased traffic.


I can't stress enough how location, location, location is so important being only 25 minutes from the Liberia International Airport making this area so attractive to retirees and young families looking for vacation rentals or year round properties with our calm riptide free, safe swimming beaches.

Market update:

Over the last three years  our real estate market has been very active with real estate sales for villas, condos, residential lots in all price ranges. Inventory has declined in some targeted price ranged properties but new developments like Monte Mar in Playas del Coco offer clients a wide variety of residential lots with new housing starts.  In Playa Panama Hacienda del Mar offers ocean view and valley view lots with numerous homes under construction for sale.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions and Costa Rica updates.

If you are interested in buying or selling I can offer you years of experience, integrity, knowledge and professionalism.
