San Jose is the capital of Costa Rica and the regional capital of the San Jose region. Located in the central valley San Jose is the most important political, economic and social center of the country. The real estate sector has continued to grow in recent years and thanks to the height increase in building permits, luxury apartment complexes are rising ever higher. This is especially true in areas like Rohrmoser, Pavas (home to one of Costa Rica’s four international airports) and the area around the Parque Metropolitano La Sabana, one of the many beautiful green areas of the city.
San Jose offers the best services in terms of transportation, education and health, a pleasant climate, colorful culture and invigorating night life. It is also one of the most important commercial centers of Central America. San Jose’s historic center has several historic buildings of European neoclassical and baroque styles. Some of the most expensive districts are Mata Redonda and La Sabana, where one can find splendid luxury apartments .
San Jose is part of the Gran Área Metropolitana of Costa Rica (GAM), one of the seven planning regions into which the country is divided. It is the most economically active zone, where the vast majority of the population is concentrated. The GAM also includes areas adjacent to the city of San Jose such as San Pedro and Curridabat to the east, where you can buy valuable properties such as exclusive condominiums. But it is to the west of the city where most of the luxury real estate market is concentrated: in San Antonio, Escazú and Santa Ana are wonderful luxury homes in a quiet location, yet still close to all the best amenities. In San Jose an awe-inspiring natural environment meets the best of the city, such as hotels, shops and high quality restaurants, offices and golf courses , in a place where the real estate investment is clearly profitable.
