When deciding whether to buy real estate in Costa Rica, most purchasers first determine whether they want to live on the coast or in or near a city. If the latter option is chosen, our customers will wind up in the Escazu neighborhood. Escazu has become one of the most sought-after communities on the outskirts of San Jose for both Costa Rican and international buyers. The reasons are numerous and vary, depending on each individual’s, family’s, or business’s investing preferences. However, the main forces that bring customers into this bustling Western suburb are convenience, proximity to the most incredible shopping, top-rated bilingual schools, world-class medical facilities, restaurants, and corporate headquarters.


Escazu is 15 minutes from the international airport and has quick access to Highway 27 (Prospero Fernandez), which provides easy access to the Pacific Coast and cities such as Jaco Beach, Manuel Antonio, and Dominical, as well as access to Guanacaste’s northern beaches. Most executives and families love getting away from the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives and visiting one of the numerous beaches. Our western location makes this so easy, with beaches less than an hour away. In terms of shopping, this region is home to the iconic Multiplaza, Costa Rica’s largest and most popular shopping mall, which has brands such as Kenneth Cole, Victoria’s Secret, and many more. In addition, several lifestyle developments have arisen to give inhabitants a more distinctive experience, with a concentration on outdoor walking areas, shopping, dining, and entertainment.


Avenida Escazu, which opened last year, is home to several fantastic restaurants as well as high-end boutiques such as the recently opened Crate and Barrel, PF Changs, an IMAX theater, loft condominiums, office space, a food court, and multiple international restaurants such as Divina Comida, Saga, and Hamburguesia, to name a few. In addition, there are also several entertainment establishments, outdoor plazas, and the Costa Rican branch of Texas Tech University will open shortly.


Another construction, Plaza Tempo, is located less than 100 yards from the previous one and is only separated by the CIMA Hospital. It offers a similar environment with work and plays possibilities from excellent restaurants, boutiques, and offices. Escazu and Santa Ana have hundreds of restaurants to satisfy even the most discriminating palette, with cuisines ranging from Italian to Japanese to Indian to Venezuelan, Colombian, and French. Escazu Village, the newest mixed-use lifestyle development in Escazu, is home to over a dozen restaurants, including TapHouse, Johnny Rockets, and Nacion Sushi, to mention a few. In addition, there are additional stores and boutiques and office space, and Loft/apartments. If your family is migrating, education is critical. This region will not disappoint with top-rated English and bilingual schools, including Country Day, Lincoln (bus access), Panamerican, Blue Valley, and dozens more. In terms of health care, Escazu is home to the CIMA Hospital, which offers world-class facilities and doctors for a fraction of the cost of similar care in the United States.


Finally, for people conducting business in Costa Rica, this location is home to the most prominent corporate facilities, making it a convenient place to live and work without the difficulties of traffic and long commutes. Facilities such as the Escazu Business Center, Plaza Roble, Cedral, Escazu Corporate Center (home to the 2Costa Rica Real Estate office), Torre HSBC (Meridiano), and others house some of the world’s most renowned corporations, including Microsoft, Intel, Proctor & Gamble, and hundreds more.

We are proud to present a wide variety of listings in each of these communities, including Central Park, Vistas del Monasterio, Cerro Alto, Monte Plata, Valle de Tamarindo, Acropolis, Cerro Real, Daluz, Bohemia Country, Avenida Escazu, Escazu Village, Vistas del Sol, and, of course, if you do not see a listing of your interest, simply inquire with specifics.
