Costa Rica House Hunting Vacations and Real Estate Tours for 2021/22



Please let me say this, during the Covid-19.  If we are ever in another pandemic, Costa Rica is where you want to be.  From travelers during this time, they have all said Costa Rica gets an A+ for handling people entering the country (i.e. temperature taking and quarantine procedures before you are even allowed to leave the airport), controlling its borders, keeping hospitals and workers safe.  The people themselves are a bit more care-free, but the government has a great plan and its in place.  As of right now, the country is open to all Travellers, just check the entry requirements for International Health Insurance, and know your own country’s requirements to return (i.e. US requires a negative covid test to be taken within 3 days of returning).

Check out Real estate AND have a fun vacation!  This is an intensely informative tour, or just a fun house hunting tour – geared towards you!

Trying to decide if a move to Costa Rica is right for you?
Already decided on Costa Rica but don’t know exactly where?
Already decided ‘where’ but need to find that perfect home or lot?

That’s where we come in! After all, it only took us 15 years of exploring the whole country to decide where we wanted to settle! Yes, that’s right – David was born and raised here and every time we visited family, we checked out a different area of Costa Rica to see if we wanted to live there. For us, it wasn’t until we visited San Ramon that we found our forever home. Not everyone wants to spend that much time looking, and with a tour like this, you won’t need to. Use our experience to help you find the right place for you. As we travel, we will fill you with tons of relocation advice, helpful moving tips, and meet with expat friends for funny stories and q&a.


Trying to decide if a move to Costa Rica is right for you?
Whether this is your first or fifteenth trip to Costa Rica, finding your forever place should be a great experience. We personally show you the Central Highland areas of San Ramon, Palmares and Atenas, and Grecia and Naranjo. We see homes for sale and rent, and lots for sale in each area. We see the towns, shopping, car dealers, the post office, even visit the bank. If dates and weather allow, we will shop at the local farmers market and go to Childrens day in the San Ramon park (great day for our family tour guests). We can add on lunch with healthcare experts, visit local schools, meet with a local attorney, whatever your needs are specifically, we will address those and get YOUR questions answered, and answer a few you never knew you had! PLUS we have FUN in each area! Visit La Paz Waterfall garden in Poas on Grecia day. Head to Nuevo Arenal and take a sunset boat tour on the lake after a day of real estate showings and town exploration. Drive down to the hot springs of the Volcano and go zip lining or horseback riding. Add on a trip to Monteverde to visit the Cloud Forests and on to Playas del Coco for some delightful beach time. Or add on a day to Paquera, a new up and coming beach area on the inside tip of the Nicoya Peninsula – great beaches for swimming and quiet relaxation away from the touristy surf beaches of the Pacific Coast. To give you an idea of pricing – lots we see start at $45k, and you can build a nice house for $65k. So how does a starting price of $110k for a new home in Paradise sounds? Let’s explore your future home together!

If you have already decided on the Central highlands, but would like some more in depth information on the different areas here, we can do that too. You will stay with us here at Vista Valverde B&B, get picked up from the airport, and see real estate in each town with us, visit the hotsprings, go horseback riding to our local waterfall, check out the oxcart factory in Sarchi, and more. We can also add a rental car for your time, to explore on your own.

Whatever your Costa Rica house hunting needs, we here at Vista Valverde work to combine that with a fun vacation to make sure you time here is not all about business. Shoot, isn’t that one of the best parts of moving to Costa Rica?! Attached is a printable flyer to show your spouse, family or friends. All of our tours are custom designed to you – families, singles, and couples. Friends are welcome to come along but we only accept up to 5 guests at a time on a tour. Check out what some of our guests had to say!

The Howards – Las Vegas, NV – “Thank you for being such a wonderful hostess, and showing us all around. You were such a big help in my decision to purchase property in CR. You make it seem so easy and achievable! It was a pleasure to meet you and your family.
We enjoyed our time in San Ramon (and environs) and I also appreciated seeing lots of different types of homes and areas. It helped to make me feel comfortable, knowing what else was available in my price range and to understand the value of one home over another.”

The Maxwell’s, Colorado “First off, thanks so much for touring us around last week. We really appreciate it and had a great time checking out the country….. Please let me know your thoughts and thanks again for your help. It was a pleasure spending time with you last week!”

Fil S. and Barbara T., Columbia, MD – ‘You and Ashley were fantastic to us!” – 2 day/1 nite Rental Relocation Tour of San Ramon and surrounding towns.
