Beach Real Estate in Costa Rica: The Search for Your Dream Home
If you are a baby boomer, you are undoubtedly considering your fast approaching retirement years. Surely you are wondering whether you have enough money after the downturn in the economy. You are likely also wondering where would be the ideal place to retire. Why not Costa Rica? Why not the Gold Coast in Guanacaste?
This is the perfect time to begin your search for beach real estate in Costa Rica. There are many options here in Guanacaste for affordable and healthy living in one’s retirement years. Furthermore, the spectacular beach areas between Avellanas and Junquillal can offer you the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of.
The Gold Coast of Costa Rica is widely known to be one of the few blue zones in the world. A blue zone is an area where people are known to live more than one hundred years old.
The reasons that they live so long are varied. The water here has a high content of calcium and magnesium required for strong bones. Healthy foods are accessible. A quick look up in a tree or down on the ground and you are likely to find a fruit or vegetable provided by the earth. This area of Costa Rica provides plenty of sun exposure enabling the body to process vitamin D.
In this part of the world, there is little or no stress. Trade winds from both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans assure the air quality here is, bar none, one of the best in the world. There are basically only twelve hours of light here all year round so once you get into the rhythm of life here you find you go to bed early and wake up with the sun to ensure that you take advantage of all the light hours of the day.
The combination of the above factors and others assures that Costa Rican residents are two times more likely to live into their nineties than people who live elsewhere.
