Building a home, or homes, in Costa Rica can be an exciting time for property owners. After purchasing a property, owners can begin the process of planning and building their new home in paradise. Typically the first step is finding an architect to design the perfect home for the residential land. At RE/MAX Pura Vida we urge clients to hire professionals that are familiar with the Costa Rican building permit process in addition to previous experience building in the area. Since Mal Pais and Santa Teresa are rural beach towns surrounded by plush jungles it is best to use materials that will maintain their quality and uphold during Costa Rican weather conditions (e.g. salt air, tropical rains etc).
