We often get asked, “What is “The Zone?” Loosely defined, The Zone is an area in the southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica. The geography, the wildlife, the ecotourism, and the real estate opportunities in The Zone are unique to Costa Rica. We tell you why and hope this video inspires you to visit us real soon.
My first visit to Costa Rica was in 2002. I immediately fell in love with the warmth of the climate and people. After spending two weeks in San Jose, Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean side, and Tamarindo in Guanacaste, I knew there was a good chance I would return sooner than later. Sooner came just 6 months later when my uncle mentioned he was flying down to Costa Rica to close on a piece of property in the Southern Pacific Zone. On that trip I found my own piece of paradise above the small town of San Buenaventura, home to the San Buenas Golf Resort. Two years and 8 trips later, I decided to move to Costa Rica full time. Every day I am thankful for that decision.
