Owning a Piece of Paradise: The Benefits of Buying a Vacation Home in Los Sueños Costa Rica

RST_5215

Owning a vacation home in Los Sueños Resort delivers so much more than a convenient place to land when you want to visit Costa Rica.

So many people visit Los Sueños Resort in Costa Rica and dream of owning a vacation condo or home here.  HRG Vacations can help make it happen. Just about an hour’s drive from San José, Los Sueños Resort & Marina showcases luxury condos, villas and sprawling eco-friendly homes—each one with spectacular ocean, jungle, mountain, marina or fairway views. The private resort community sits within a 600-acre rainforest reserve, with plenty to do and see on-site: restaurants, bars and lounges, an 18-hole championship golf course, spa, marina, plenty of retail shops and services.

The region around Los Sueños Resort is a narrow coastal plain fronted by the crystal-clear blue waters of the Pacific and backed rainforest-clad mountains. The surfing beaches extend south to Dominical and beyond. To the north, lie the dry tropical forests of Guanacaste and the cloud forest reserves of Monteverde.

Los Sueños is one of the most popular resorts in Costa Rica. The benefits of vacation home at Los Sueños don’t stop with a luxury base for your own vacations in Costa Rica; location, convenience, income-generation, tax-savings, and a jump-start on an unrivaled ex-pat retirement lifestyle also come into play.

Renting your second home to Costa Rica vacationers can help offset mortgage and maintenance costs, generating income when you’re not using the property. Rental fees vary, but during peak season weekly rental fees equal or exceed the monthly mortgage payment. You may break even with an annual occupancy of about 30% in terms of cash flow.

Depending on personal use versus rental, tax benefits vary. If you rent out your property 14 days or less in a year, you can treat the mortgage on your second home the same as the mortgage on your primary residence. Consult a tax professional or review IRS Publication 527 on vacation rentals for advice on your specific tax situation.

HRG Vacations will take care of marketing and renting out your vacation rental, along with seeing to all the needs of your vacation rental guests. HRG Properties and Rentals can also handle immediate response needs, regular maintenance, and payments for utilities, HOA fees and insurance. The concierge staff is always there assist your tenants with a full range of services.

Los Sueños properties tend to retain their value because of the resort’s location and amenities. Of course, there is no guarantee vacation homes realize higher sales prices, but it’s likely. For more information about Los Sueños Resort and Marina, or the surrounding communities, call our office at 011 506 2637 8484 or call toll free 1 888 490 4581.

6 Romantic Things To Do During Your Valentine’s Day Escape at Los Sueños Resort

couple holding hands sunset Costa Rica

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to escape to Los Sueños Resort Costa Rica

This Valentine’s day, make it extra special and escape to Los Sueños Resort. Romance abounds at Los Sueños and its so perfect, you won’t even need to leave the resort. Here are our top 6 favorite things to do for a romantic holiday away at Los Sueños, Costa Rica.

Spend time forest or ocean gazing on your private terrace; enjoy meals al fresco, read a good book, make out on the couch or hammock… the romantic possibilities are endless.

Candle-light dinners are always a romance booster and at Los Sueños Resort you can enjoy one in the privacy of your luxury condo or at one of the many wonderful restaurant options available right on the property. Want to get out on the town for a bit? We love El Hicaco for romantic candle lit dinner right on the beach (great wine list; even better food!).

A unique local experience is always fun and romantic. Sunset drum circles often take place on the beach down on the South end of town, there is weekly surf contest at The Backyard Bar & Grill (complete with barbecue and live music) each Saturday afternoon, and there is a live DJ playing house music on the beach until Sunset on Fridays and Saturdays followed by live music on the beach after dark- all right in front of El Hicaco Restaurant (yep, that means you can catch a show while you dine!).

There isn’t much more relaxing and romantic than a Couples Massage; arrange it through your concierge at HRG for an appointment in your vacation villa or condo or at one of the 2 local day spas located within Los Sueños Resort.

A sunset horseback ride on the beach or an afternoon ride to a nearby waterfall both fall into line with perfection in romance. Just ask; the team at HRG can arrange everything for you.

Adventure and adrenalin never fail to get romance raging and your concierge can connect you with reservations for an amazing zip line canopy tour, ATV ride through the jungle or a day of white water river rafting.

Leg 1 of the 2017 Los Sueños Triple Crown Results Are In

Trolling fishing boat rod and golden saltwater reels

Another stellar year for the Los Sueños Triple Crown Billfish Series: 2017 does it again

It was congratulations all around at the Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown awards banquet on Saturday, January 21, 2017. The Los Sueños Beach Club hosted 237 anglers, who came off of 50 boats, after they released 997 billfish during the first leg of the three-leg competition: 785 sailfish and 212 blue and striped marlin. Day 1 of the competition saw Tranquilo in the lead, Tarheel in second and Agitator in third. By the end of Day 2, Tranquilo was still in the lead and Agitator had moved up to second with Blue Eagle in third on time. Xta Sea would change everything by lines out on Day 3. The Team Xta Sea, with Alexis and Julio Chamorro, Emilio Munkel and Jacob Graves and captained by Ronnie Riebe released 18 billfish, including 12 marlin, to win first place with 6,600 points. Agitator released 30 sails and 7 marlin for a total of 6,500 points to finish second. En Joy reeled in third place with 6,400 points: 19 sails and 8 marlin. The marlin made all the difference in scoring for Xta Sea, giving them a slight point advantage that Agitator and Reel Screamer couldn’t quite catch. Although the bite was off previous years’ record breaking numbers, Leg I 2017’s marlin release (212) eclipsed 2016 (15). The first four years in the tournament’s history saw astonishing numbers for billfish releases. The Triple Crown’s predecessor tournament, Los Sueños Signature Billfish Series, ran for 10 consecutive and very successful years. In their 15th tournament year, Los Sueños has clearly demonstrated it knows how to host a tournament. Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coastline is one of the best global fisheries and Los Sueños Resort and Marina on Herradura Bay is a short cruise across usually calm waters to one of the top-ranked billfisheries in the world. The Billfish Report ranked the area Number 1 in 2015 and 2016. The Triple Crown includes three legs, one during each of January, February and March. The teams are back at Los Sueños Feb. 22, for Leg II. Leg III sets sail March 22. For more tournament information, follow Los Sueños on Facebook or Twitter (@Lossuenosresort) or visit the official Los Sueños Tournament page.

triple_crown

At Last: 2017 The Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown  is here

 

The Billfish Report recently named the waters off of Los Sueños Resort & Marina the Number One Bill Fishery in the World for 2015 and 2016, with good reason. The calm waters and short cruising time to the fishing grounds off Los Sueños Marina make it one of the most productive fisheries in the world. After the hugely successful Los Sueños Signature Billfish Series for 10 consecutive years and the annual Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown Billfish Tournament for three years, expectations are high for the fourth annual Triple Crown. Leg I of III kicks off January 18, 2017.

Team registration begins at 1 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the tournament tent on the lawn in front of The Hook Up. Light snacks and beverages will be available there as team members mingle, catch up and trade anecdotes about recent catches. Captains and observers have mandatory meetings until 6 p.m., but anglers and their supporters can enjoy a sundowner, or two, at The Hook Up or any of the restaurants and bars in the Marina Village.

Days 2 and 3 begin early: Boats can leave the marina and go to the fishing grounds at 6:00 a.m. Or, as soon as Tournament Control confirms all observers have checked in and are aboard each boat. Lines will be in at 8 a.m. and out by 4 p.m. Scorecards are due to the Tournament Committee by 7 p.m.

After fishing, dockside cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be available at the tournament tent next to The Hook Up.

Day 4 is a repeat of the previous two days, except for the awards banquet and ceremony at Los Sueños hottest venue, The Los Sueños Beach Club.

The Los Sueños Resort & Marina the premier luxury resort and marina in Costa Rica. A 1,000-acre plus haven of incredible views over the Pacific Ocean, rainforest and golf, Los Sueños Resort has top notch on-site sports facilities and activities from world-class golf to luxury day spas.

The Los Sueños Resort Beach Club

Beach-Club

 Our favorite hangout during our vacation at Los Sueños Resort & Marina was, without doubt, the Los Sueños Beach Club.

During our recent vacation at Los Sueños Resort & Marina, we spent a lot of time at the Los Sueños Resort Beach Club, an exclusive beach club reserved for Los Sueños Resort residents and their guests. The Beach Club is truly one of the premier amenities at Los Sueños Resort. The $3 million facility features an impressive, free-form swimming pool and Jacuzzi, as well as shower and change facilities, expansive decks, fountains, swim-up bar and an elevated, white sand beach with shade palapas and a spectacular view of Los Sueños Marina and Herradura Bay. Arriving each morning around 9:30 am, we staked out our choice corner spot, right near Jacuzzi and directly across from the swim-up bar, where the shallow “kiddie” area of the pool meets the divider wall between it and the deeper end. Unloading all our stuff (floaties, towels, sunblock, and cooler) we spread out for a fun day in the sun on “our” club provided chaise lounges and umbrella- shaded patio table with chairs.   Loving every minute of every day at the Los Sueños Beach Club, we really appreciated all the wonderful amenities and conveniences it had to offer. Here are a few of our favorite things about it:

We were able to bring our favorite pool toys and comfortable floating pool loungers for plenty of fun in the pool for the whole family.

There were no restrictions about bringing a cooler with fresh drinks and snacks for our family; of course, they asked to check that we were not bringing in any glass, but we are so glad they did! Safety first…

We loved the white sand beach and the playground; the kids had a ball building sand castles and playing on the swings, monkey bars and slide.

When lunch time rolled around, we could order from the amazing menu at Al Fresco Restaurant. The wait staff brought it around to us in the morning, so all we had to do was catch someone’s attention (easy to do as they are very attentive) and order. Our favorites??

  • Hawaiian Waves Neapolitan style pizza with its artisan crust, fire baked in a wood burning oven. Wow. Garlic shrimp, grilled pineapple and mozzarella; it doesn’t get much better than this! 
  • Fire roasted mixed veggies served on freshly baked flat bread. With spinach, feta cheese, tomato, cucumber, portabello mushrooms and more…. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
  • Last but not least, sea bass ceviche served with crispy corn tortilla chips.
  • Ice cold cocktails, beer and wine

We loved everything about the Los Sueños Resort Beach Club and even talked about reserving it for a private function (totally doable); perhaps our upcoming family reunion!

Flying to Costa Rica During High Season

airplane costa rica

Your flight to Costa Rica during high season can be a breeze when you follow these tips

Costa Rica’s dry season means it’s also high season, which can make cheap flights harder to find than a resplendent quetzal. However, with persistence and our best advice, you won’t have to pay over the top for a comfortable and convenient flight. AirFare Watchdog and Secret Flying are great online resources. If you are a frequent flyer member, check individual airline websites. Kayak, Hipmunk, Skyscanner, Expedia and others do some, but not all, of the comparison for you. Visit  CheapAir.com’s blog for a list of best Costa Rica high season travel days. Be aware price quotes will vary from search to search, even for the same route on the same day on the same airline. Browse using the incognito feature: In Google Chrome or Safari, simultaneously press Command or Control, Shift, and “N.”. For Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer, press Command/Control, Shift, and “P.”  For older versions of OS X, open Safari, click “Safari” in the menu bar, and select “Private Browsing.” Other booking tips:

  • Know a great deal when you see one— $500 is a steal. Normal round trip coach rates tend to hover around $700 (deepening on where you’re flying from, of course) during busier times.
  • Book early; except, there are sometimes last minute deals because the airplane hasn’t filled up.
  • Be flexible about travel dates and days of the week.
  • Use air miles.
  • For checked luggage, book and pay when you choose the flight.
  • Book (and pay for) disability assistance at the airport at booking.
  • Read the fine print and know the rules.

Before you go:

  • Contact the post office to place a mail hold.
  • Stop newspaper deliveries or ask a trusted neighbor to pick them up for you.
  • Be sure your passport isn’t going to expire in the next six months.
  • Make copies of your license and your passport.
  • Tell your bank/credit card company you are traveling.
  • Book pets with the pet sitter.
  • Pack lightly: one nice sundress/outfit, a couple of pairs of shorts and T-shirts and bathing suit.
  • Be sure you have enough of your daily medications for the trip.
  • Consider carry-on only; its cheaper and there is less to keep track of.

At the airport:

  • Arrive at the airport early
  • Don’t wait until the last minute to enter the airport security line.
  • Don’t take drinks into the security line.
  • No more than 3 oz. of anything liquid in Ziploc bags for screening.
  • Remove your shoes, coat or sweater, jewelry and keys. Have your laptop, notepad or cell phone out and in its own bin.

Once you land:

  • You can pick up a sim card for your unlocked GMS phone at the kiosk that is in baggage claim. This is highly recommended, as roaming rates will kill your vacation budget.
  • If you have a lot of baggage (especially those on a staycation or those in big groups), get one of the baggage claim attendants to assist you; he’ll likely also whisk you through customs. Its customary to tip around c1000 per bag.
  • There is a money exchange window in the baggage claim area. They will give you the current exchange rate and it’s a good idea to have some colones on you.
  • Taxis will be readily available just outside, but you can also arrange for transport with the concierge team at HRG
  • If you’ve rented a car, there will likely be a shuttle waiting for you to get you to the rental agency office. If not, a taxi or Uber can get you there inexpensively; its right around the corner, but not so close you can walk. Ask your rental agency for instructions before you arrive.

Flying Internationally can be stressful but forward planning can keep everyone relaxed and the budget healthy.

What You Need to Know About Retiring in Costa Rica

retired couple Costa Rica

Retiring in Costa Rica is easier than you think

Retirement in Costa Rica is exciting, especially if you’re buying a new home. Los Sueños Resort and Marina aims to make your dream of life in a balmy tropical paradise come true. As always, there are things to know before you buy.

If you are buying property, you’ll need an attorney who is also a Public Notary (not all attorneys are notaries), a surveyor, and a translator. Ask your Realtor for recommendations, but shop around. Closing costs include registration, notary and attorney fees, documentary stamps and transfer taxes. The bases for these costs amount to about 6% of the purchase price. The good news is, your team at HRG can guide you through all of this and point you in the right direction where needed.

You’ll need a local bank account and you have a choice between a private or state bank. State-owned banks guarantee all deposits, among other advantages. Private banks have shorter lines and the staff is more likely to be bilingual. Savings accounts are the most common and easiest to open. A debit card linked to a savings account will work for most transactions. Most banks require:

 

  • Identification: A DIMEX ID card
  • Minimum Deposit: Savings, US$25; checking, $500-$1,000.
  • Utility Bill: Electric, water, Internet or telephone bill with physical address or a rental agreement.
  • Proof of Income: Certification of Income (Certificacion de Ingresos) prepared by a CPA.
  • U.S. Tax Forms: U.S. citizens must fill out tax forms and other documentation with foreign banks to inform the IRS of offshore bank accounts and renewed annually.
  • A reference letter from your previous bank (even if that bank is in the United States or Canada).

 

Retiring in Costa Rica means you’ll also need to apply for a residency visa, typically one of two types: pensionado (pension income of at least $1,000 from Social Security or other retirement plan) or rentista ($2,500 monthly income for at least two years or a $60,000 deposit in a Costa Rican bank approved by immigration authorities. The list of required documents (all must be translated into Spanish by an official translator) is extensive. Hire a lawyer and assemble the required documents before you make the move. You can receive Social Security while living in Costa Rica.

When you receive the official paperwork approving your residency, you have a month to have your resident ID card (cedula) issued and apply for the Caja (national health insurance). Pay for your first month and take the receipt to your cedula appointment. Cost depends on type of residency, income and age. You’ll need to keep paying your caja every month unless you can prove you are insured otherwise.

A retirement home at Los Sueños is a great investment; the master-planned community offers more than 600 private homes, from expansive villas to one, two and three bedroom condos, and amenities that include a full service international marina, an 18 hole, championship golf course, a private beach club and private rainforest reserve, and the marina village complete with restaurants, a bar, a bank, a car rental agency, a wine and spirits shop, art galleries, and more.

The professionals at HRG Properties & Rentals have the local knowledge and experience to help you find and enjoy the creature comforts of your new retirement home near the ocean in Costa Rica.

Superbowl Sunday, a Golf Tournament by night, and Los Sueños Costa Rica

Golf Ball near hole Los Sueños Resort Costa Rica

A Golf Tournament by Night + Superbowl Sunday in Los Sueños, Costa Rica; it just doesn’t get much better then this!

A golf trip in Costa Rica can provide everything you need to get away from it all – a few nights far from home, a relaxing, leisurely game where you and your buddies can catch up and unwind, and definitely a day of sport fishing. Top all that off with great food and wonderful amenities, and you’ve got yourself a golf trip to remember. Imagine, though, combining all that with the Superbowl this February 4, 2017. That’s right, you can enjoy Superbowl LI 2017 via the big screen from the comfort of your luxury vacation villa or condo in Los Sueños Resort, right after a long day of superb golfing. Of course, we don’t know who’s going to the bowl yet, but they’ll be playing in Texas, and you can watch them from Costa Rica.   The 15th edition of the La Iguana Invitational is open, by invitation only, to La Iguana Golf Course Los Sueños Marriott Members, residents and owners in Los Sueños Resort, boat owners with slips in the marina, and professional golfers from around the country. The tournament will be held on Superbowl Sunday, February 4, 2017 at 11:00am and going on through the night. A different experience, you will be golfing with neon balls at night. For more information about joining the tournament, you can contact the La Iguana Golf Course directly.   Los Sueños Resort is the perfect place for a golf trip. Not only does the Los Sueños Resort offer beautiful vacation condos and villas with fantastic amenities, it also has a first-class golf course that makes for a worthy game. The La Iguana Golf Course is a naturally challenging, 18-hole championship golf course designed by Ted Robinson. And, as if that were not enough, the course is set in paradise. La Iguana backs up to the rainforest, and also features spectacular ocean views. So what does a jungle golf course mean for your golfing experience? It means that the rainforest is part of the course itself. This is not a walk on a hilly barren green – this is an exotic place, with brightly colored flowers and lush green tropical plants. This is a place where a monkey just might steal your golf ball, and you may see a macaw peering down at you from a banana tree as you tee up for a hole. A place where you can experience the rainforest as you play against a seaside backdrop. The La Iguana course is deceptively challenging. Fortunately, there are PGA-qualified golf professionals on hand to help you, and you’ll have access to state-of-the-art golfing equipment and a huge putting green and driving range. And what is a golf game without a solid challenge, anyway? HRG Vacations offers great golfing packages, which include a stay in a luxury condo, unlimited golfing for two days, and airport transfers. The rates are reasonable, and the golfing is great year around, so of course you can come any time, but we do recommend making a Superbowl weekend out of it. For those times when you’re not on the course, there is plenty to do. Whether you want to hit the spa for a deep tissue massage or head out for a zip lining adventure, an ATV trek through the mountainside, or try your hand on a sport fishing trip, you can do it all in or near Los Sueños Resort and Marina. If you get hungry after a long day of golfing, Los Sueños offers 12 restaurants, all of which will cater to your door should you feel like staying in. There are also lots of great restaurants nearby where you can get some great local cuisine. And if you’re looking for something to after-hours, the breezy beach town of Jaco – known for its great night life — is just a few minutes away. Why not plan a long weekend at Los Sueños Resort and join in the golf tournament to boot? Call today to make your reservations; it could be the best boy’s weekend away you’ve had in a while.
