Why is Caribe Sur real estate so attractive?Caribe Sur real estate is not for everyone. Some people just hate surfing, snorkeling or just lying on the beach and sip piña coladas.

It’s all about a lifestyle!

Do you know what the Caribe Sur in Costa Rica is?

The Caribe Sur is Costa Rica’s Southern Caribbean region. It starts around Cahuita and runs along the coast all the way to Manzanillo. This is where the road stops and where the Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge starts.

Costa Rica is one of the most biodiverse countries on the planet. Fortunately, it’s not only the plants and the animals that are different. The Southern Caribbean offers a much different lifestyle than you will find anywhere in Costa Rica.

It is important to note that all Caribe Sur real estate that is on the beach, is not titled but concession property. Learn more about this in an article about maritime zoning in Costa Rica.

Almost every property on the ocean side of road 256 is, therefore, concession land. Talk to our agent Jose Tercero, for further explanation. He knows the Caribe Sur zoning plan well.
