Costa Rica property for sale overlooking the Pacific Ocean above some of the beautiful beaches in the world 
 Local beaches along the coast and other area destinations


We have some of the most beautiful Costa Rica real estate for sale.  Located near the Pacific Ocean in the province of Guanacaste on the Rio Frio in the hills above Playa Samara.


The province of Guanacaste covers most of Nicoya Peninsula on Costa Rica's northwest coast.  It has over 200 miles of coastline with more that 70 different beaches. The following are several of the beaches near the property.

One of the few truly self sustainable communities in Costa Rica.


Note: all of the beaches are pretty close as the "crow flies" but we are 5 kilometers up a windy mountain gravel road so the actual time to the beach by driving is 20 to 30 minutes to the closest beaches. wel driving estimates are realistic and vary for the conditions of local roads. (We have noticed that most of the hotels in the area underestimate the driving times from the airport and local beaches.)


The east end of Playa Samara is in the photo above.


 Playa Samara (20 minutes away)


Land for sale in Costa Rica

"One of the safest and prettiest beaches in the country," Lonely Planet


"Playa Samara is the perfect long white sand beach with shallow, gentle waters." - The Key to Costa Rica


This is a great beach for children to play in the surf, for windsurfing, sea kayaking, horseback riding, and for first time surfers. This is currently the closest beach to Las Brisas until we build access to the Nosara side of the property.


Some people claim the reef on this beach keeps the sharks out of the surfing area making it the safest beach along the coast.


Clearly we offer some of the most gorgeous property for sale in Costa Rica.




 Playa Carrillo (25 minutes away)


Costa Rica real estate for sale

This is the closest beach to the property and rumored to be the favorite beach of the Costa Rica president.  This secluded destination is set in a small bay about 5 miles southeast of Samara. The beach ends at Punta Del Indio (The Cape of the Indian), named that way because when it’s seen from the opposite side of the bay the cape resembles someone lying face up. The waters are crystal clear, perfect for snorkeling around the coral reef or enjoying the water, since Playa Carrillo is so great for swimming.

This beach is the perfect place to end a great day swimming, surfing, walking or playing Frisbee.

 Playa Garza (40 minutes away)


Costa Rica Property for sale

A sportfishing beach, protected by a reef line offshore. Garza, the fishing village has some bars, small native restaurants and coconut palm trees. When we drive from Las Brisas to Nosara we pass right through the beautiful area.


This town resembles a small fishing village that most visitors dream of developing when they first see it - until they discover that Costa Rica has protected the beaches. What is currently there will stay, but there will not be new development on the beach. Costa Rica beaches will never develop the way costal areas have in most of the US.


The beach has as steep slope to the surf and the waves come crashing in. The last time we were there we sat out at the tables in front and waves rolled in right up to our chairs. In the picture Benjamin is standing inches away and 10 meters out the water would be over his head and that wave coming in is much larger than it appears. Great for boogie boarding!

Local fishing charter boats are available for day trips or for just a few hours.



 Playa Buenavista (35 minutes away)


Costa Rica Property for sale

If you want a private place to go Buenavista might well serve your needs. Located 100 meters down from the Flying Crocodile which is one of the most interesting places to stay and close to the finca owned by Mel Gibson.


One home has a lookout tower in the trees and we are sure you will find people on the beach during the season, but we haven't seen any except during tourist season.




 Playa Guiones (45 minutes away)


Property for sale in costa rica

One of the longest beaches, about 5 kilometers of light sand and rolling surf. A favorite beach for surfers with consistent and dependable waves. The beach, as part of the National Wildlife Refuge is pristine with tropical vegetation and offers a private feeling.


The Costa Rica national surfing championship have been held here.


Because the waves roll in gradually this is an exceptional place to play in the surf.


Walk around the point to the pink sand beaches and fish for snook, tuna, jacks, or red snapper.




 Playa Nosara (60 minutes away)


Black sand beach and a favorite place for fishermen, because 2 of Cost Rica's longest rivers empty into a lagoon behind Playa Nosara. Explore up the river by canoe or kayak and enjoy a unique wonderland of animals and tropical vegetation.


When the tides are right this is great place to fish. 

The beach is also a wonderful walking beach.




 Playa Ostinal (65 minutes away)


Black sand beach and the second largest nesting place in the world for olive ridley turtles. Hundreds of thousands of females arrive in huge “arribadas” during several nights and dig holes in the sand to lay their eggs. 


Playa Ostional is one of the few places in the world where you can observe this phenomena. The biggest arribadas normally occur from July to December. 

Zoologists report that the Ostional population of this endangered species is stable in contrast to most places in the world because of the efforts of the locals to protect the area and the eggs during arribadas.




 Playa San Juanillo (70 minutes away)


Playa San Juanillo is actually a series of small, mostly protected coves. The primary cove is a classic picture of colorful local fishing boats (pangas) protected by a rim of rocks and reef. Here the water is more calm than most other beaches on the entire peninsula. This makes for very pleasant swimming and much better snorkeling than many places on The Pacific Coast.


Walk out to the point and there are lava cliffs jutting into the Pacific and tide pools. Round the point and more tide pools and another beach cove.
