Buying Real Estate in Playa Grande

Playa Grande is a wonderful beach community located just north of Tamarindo, Costa Rica. This little town is home to some of the most consistent surf in the area. The wide beach is perfect for walking during our beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The community is laid back and is a great place to have a retirement home, vacation rental, or primary residence. There are several community developments in Playa Grande, including Las Ventanas De Playa Grande, Playa Grande Estates, and Palm Beach Estates.


Las Ventanas De Playa Grande

Las Ventanas is located on your way into Playa Grande with incredible views of the beautiful ocean, Tamarindo, Catalina islands, and further. The 380-acre ocean view community is a sustainable low density gated community project that is safe and secure. Living in Playa Grande at Las Ventanas is the premiere location for locals and expats alike. The development offers large lots, incredible views, fiber optics, water to each lot, a community garden with year round fruit trees, and a clubhouse soon to come.


People love living in Playa Grande with its small town feel and proximity to Tamarindo. Locals enjoy great food at RipJack Inn, Café del Pueblo, and the El Huerto and local fare and fun at Kike’s Place. Playa Grande is also home to the giant Leatherback turtle. Las Baulas National park is one of the largest nesting grounds for the Leatherback Turtle, which is the largest marine reptile. With an average temperature in the mid-80’s, living in Playa Grande is an excellent choice for those who want warm weather, beautiful beaches, and a small vibrant community.

Playa Grande Estates

Making up the central beachside neighborhood in town, Playa Grande Estates is the ultimate location for those who want to walk to the beach and the services. The neighborhood includes several quality restaurants/bars/hotels, and sits in front of perhaps the most consistent surfing wave in Costa Rica.

After a lengthy moratorium, building permits are available again and there is active construction in PGE now. The project currently has 4 lots left that are pre-approved for building permit, with more on the way. Average lot size is 800m2 (8700sf, .2 acres), and the regulations for building here mandate low-density residential construction, so this will always be a nature-lovers paradise.
