Most people who have their retirement funds in an individual retirement account have an IRA of some sort. What most do not know is that you can diversify your retirement portfolio with real estate, and therefore with the purchase of a Costa Rica vacation home through a self-directed IRA account.

A self-directed IRA account gives you the option to invest in residential and commercial real estate, vacant land, and other real estate-related assets such as a Costa Rica vacation home. You can open a Real Estate IRA in a Traditional, SEP, or Roth IRA and invest tax free in Costa Rica real estate.

You can either pay cash from your IRA, partner with your personal funds or even partner with another investor.
