5 Luxury Homes in Central America
Deciding in which Central American country you would like to live and spend some or all of your year, requires very careful thought and planning! Read our blog on 5 Steps on to Buying Caribbean Real Estate.
To give you an idea of available luxury property for sale, we briefly compare four very different Central American countries and showcase 5 different properties in Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Mexico.
Nicaragua is a country of lakes and volcanoes and will be the site of the second trans-americas canal bringing shipping from the Caribbean through to the Pacific.
This will bring prosperity and jobs and Nicaragua will change, in the same way that Panama adapted to its world class status over the last hundred years as a result of its Canal.
Nicaragua has some beautiful resort and residential developments on the Pacific and on the Caribbean coasts, as well as farms and homesteads for sale in the countryside.
Costa Rica is a small country which is on target to reach its carbon neutral status by 2021, and it is the first developing country in the world to trade in Carbon Credits. Costa Rica has long been a country conscious and proud of its environmental heritage and takea its countryside stewardship very seriously. The country has a big international residential sector mainly along the coasts and it is known more for its green boutique hotels than large world class developments.
Honduras is a country of political contrasts, and the offshore Bay Islands are somewhat different from the mainland. They are tourism centric, sophisticated and are home to many world-class tourism developments. The large number of international residents bring wealth and growth to these islands.
Mexico is the 13th largest country in the world and the 11th richest. It offers something for everyone and is the most connected by sea and air of all the Central American countries other than Panama. Geographically and culturally Mexico perhaps has more choices to offer than any of its smaller neighbours, and for the more cosmopolitan visitor and expat its a great destination.
A charming, private estate a few seconds walk from the sea in Punta Uva, Costa Rica, is on the market for just under $1 Million US. A quiet countryside spot, this will suit an owner looking for peace and tranquility and lots of space.
The main house comes with verandahs, galleries and a pool and jacuzzi. The guest house and caretakers house are each fully fitted with a bathroom and a kitchen. All three homes are finished with the most beautiful local woods including teak. The mature tropical gardens meander down to the white sand beach.
If you are looking for a vibrant night life, somewhere to lay your hat and go out to play then this is a great solution in Mexico.
Once a place of small fishing villages, the Riviera Maya coastline has since been developed into a modern tourist corridor offering the very best of high-end luxury resorts, fine dining, nightlife, spa retreats, shopping and golf in Mexico.
1, 2 & 3 bedroom managed condos in a luxury resort condominium with 5 Star restaurant, just steps from the beach.
You can come and go as you please, earn a rental when you’re not there, and never worry about your investment.
An interesting, unique architect designed home with swimming pool and beautiful views over Nacascolo Bay. Just 10 mins drive to the town of San Juan del Sur, and yet situated in the quiet countryside.
The house has an interesting brick ceiling and the focal point is the flow of water, with a 50 ft X 15 ft tear-drop shaped swimming pool with two in-pool seating areas. The pool is surrounded by flag stones and lined completely with lovely mosaic Spanish tiles. A water fall system that originates in the centre of the home, cascades into the pool. The living spaces wrap around the visually warm dining room which is open to cool breezes during the heat of the day.
Nestled within a gated community is this secluded villa and guest cottage, offering clear ocean and mountain views. It includes a swimming pool and is within 5 minutes of the beach and airport.
This is another managed property that comes complete with friends and neighbours and the security of a gated community, whilst also being great investment. The property includes a main house (consisting of 3 bedrooms), a rancho with pool table, garage for 2 cars and a 1 bedroom guest cottage.
The final property is a highly investable charming 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house, arranged as two separate apartments, set within 0.14 acres of landscaped gardens. This is comfortable luxury at a really affordable price on the small Caribbean island of Utila, where the diving is world famous and there are many tourist resorts.
Located in a residential area in a quiet part of town, the home has a leisure pool and is at the end of a concrete paved private cul-de-sac road surrounded with secure 6ft high coral rock perimeter walls. The two apartments are being sold fully furnished along with a four wheel drive vehicle. This is really a turn-key occupation!
Five very different properties, all with a touch of luxury Central American style! Happy house-hunting!Share this article on
