April 2021 Howler E-mag – Issuu Online Highlights Text
Living your own version of the pura vida dream is the theme of this month’s Howler e-magazine focusing on real estate in Costa Rica. Moving to, or within, this magnificent country is explored from many different sides of buying, building and budget considerations, as well as location and lifestyle options. Starting with Randy Toltz’s cover story about the post-pandemic uptrend in long-distance real estate transactions, we look at the questions people should ask before deciding whether to transplant their home roots here from another country, and specifically what to expect with a family in tow.
We look at the myriad possibilities for choosing where to live and how to live, from a geographic and demographic perspective, as well as the types of properties and residential dwellings, both turnkey and unbuilt. Our regional spotlight is on the Jacó vicinity’s continuing popularity as a coastal hotspot for expats and former San José urban dwellers alike. Insight into the ripple effect of the dynamic U.S. economy on the Costa Rican real estate market is offered by an international legal expert. Another article highlights the country’s new legislation benefiting digital nomads.
For the second month in a row, Howler reports on another first in Costa Rica’s birding world — sightings of the notoriously elusive rufous-vented ground cuckoo at Pocosol brought flocks of tourists to the remote rainforest station in early February.
