March 2022 Howler Highlights
Costa Rica’s real estate scene is abuzz with activity, only partly triggered by last year’s economic reset buttons being pushed globally. What many of our readers will realize is that it’s not a new phenomenon or passing fad, but rather the continuation of a long-term uptrend. From the time of Howler’s inception, we’ve kept our finger on the pulse of what motivates expats to seek, find, buy and build homes in this awesome country. Our vast online collection of articles covers the gamut of expertise on relocation, real estate, design and building, legal, financial, investment and property management. So with a special focus on real estate in this month’s issue, we are pleased to provide a catalog of titles that we encourage prospective house hunters to read at their leisure.
Our March featured adventure describes the natural highs you can experience while hiking with an informative guide in Arenal. And again, we offer glimpses at five unique Latin American locales — all based on recommendations from locals. Our “top 5” sampling of attractions in each spot includes two home country locales: Puntarenas and Playas del Coco. Crossing both international borders, we take you to Tola, Nicaragua and Colón, Panama. Venturing further to South America, find out what experiences await in Neiva, Colombia.
Howler continues connecting Costa Rica with the world on other fronts too. We have plenty of details about the eco-friendly performance tour that Coldplay is kicking off in San José. Also find out about cultural preservation initiatives benefiting the Maleku indigenous community, and a versatile new venue for special events and retreats.
