Costa Rica Tourism Growing

Costa Rica continues to grow as a popular tourist destination, but what is interesting is how diverse those tourists are becoming. Traditionally Costa Rica has focused on the United States and Canada for the majority of their tourists, but a concentrated marketing effort in Europe over the past couple years, along with the help of several new direct flights across the Atlantic have propelled the tourism market. With direct flights to Spain, England, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, and France, we are seeing a strong increase in travelers from throughout Europe.

Another sector that continues to grow is local tourism. Now more than ever, Costa Ricans have more disposable income, along with more cars, leading to many Ticos making much more frequent trips to the beaches for a quick get away. Perhaps no market has benefited more than this than Jaco and moving forward expect to see Jaco and San Jose market merge closer together. Recently I helped launch a local campaign targeting locals and promoting the Jaco area. Take a look below.
Sometimes its easy to forget that tourism in Costa Rica is still relatively young, with both local and international travelers visiting the Central Pacific I feel Jaco is in a strong position to benefit over the long run.

Why the New Jaco Walk is a Big Deal

For any questions you have about this property click here to contact the listing agent.

The much anticipated Jaco Walk Plaza recently had its grand opening and typically there wouldn’t be much so hype over a new commercial center, but this is more than just that.

The Jaco Walk is a tremendous development for Jaco Beach, featuring what is now a new central town square for the community with an emphasis on outdoor dining and shopping, along with family gatherings and playgrounds.

The plan for Jaco Walk is to feature regular events like concerts, festivals, performances, and other activities to help bring together the local community.

Many popular businesses and restaurants have made the move to Jaco Walk, including Tsunami Sushi, Side Street, and Graffiti, while many new restaurants have been welcomed to Jaco.

The next phase calls for additional commercial space, nature trails for dog walking, and eventually a hotel and residential development, which will be an estimated $80 million dollar project.

I feel that this type of investment and commitment from local businesses signals a bright future for Jaco.

The golden rule with real estate investment, and especially in Costa Rica is to FOLLOW the infrastructure.

I expect Jaco to continue to improve and grow and feel now is the time to consider investing in our up and coming community. If you have more questions about investing in Jaco, contact David Karr here.
