Retirement Costa Rica

Costa Rica is the Perfect Place to Retire

Meanwhile, the central location, beautiful homes and great amenities of Costa Rica’s Los Sueños Resort only heighten the Costa Rican experience. Los Sueños is a particularly perfect place to hang up your career hat and retire, for a number of different reasons.

Quality of Life

Costa Rica offers a laid-back lifestyle perfect for those who want to live out their retirement in peace and tranquility.  The pace is unhurried and the locals place a premium on family, fun and relaxation. Los Sueños in particular is perfect for those looking to unwind – the resort offers many private and semi-private condos and villas that feature quiet, tranquil living. And it doesn’t hurt that Los Sueños is nestled in a virtual tropical paradise. No shoveling walks or donning heavy coats here – just warm breezes and outdoor living year round.


Costa Rica is an affordable place to live. Gas prices, electricity, food and entertainment all cost far less here than they do in the United States.

Home prices

While they are on the rise, home prices in Costa Rica are still lower than in comparable spots around the world. Los Sueños in particular offers a wealth of reasonably priced condos and villas of all sizes and types. You won’t find luxury homes this close to paradise for these prices anywhere in Europe or the United States. What costs $750,000 or less in Los Sueños can cost upwards of a million dollars in other desirable spots in the world. Plus, if you buy before you retire, you can rent out the property to help it pay for itself or even create some passive income.


You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to things to do in Los Sueños. Feel like heading out to or some sand and sun? The resort offers a private beach. Want to host a party for visiting friends? Book the resort’s exclusive beach club. The Los Sueños Marina offers 200 boats, and you can charter one at any time to head out for an adventure. There are two spas to relax in and 12 restaurants to choose from, and you can even choose to have massages and meals catered to your home.

If you enjoy golf, you’ll love having access to the world-class La Iguana Golf Course, which backs right up to the rainforest. There are even homes available that overlook the course.

If you crave adventure, you can try whitewater rafting, diving, ziplining, ATVing, or canyoning. But if you would just like to see the area in a leisurely way, there’s hiking, canoeing, and fishing. And if you would like to get to know the Costa Rica culture, you can always head out to the nearby town of Jaco to enjoy shopping, night life, and soaking up the local culture.
