Waldorf Astoria Residences Costa RicaThis a a rendering of the Waldorf Astoria Costa Rica Punta Cacique Hotel and Residences

Unless you are living under a rock, you have heard of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel Punta Cacique.  This magnificent 190 room hotel and resort is being built as we speak, bringing an iconic brand and 5 star hotel property right to our doorstep.  This development is something that many in the area have been anticipating for many years and will be well worth the wait.  You too can enjoy this one of a kind hotel property with room rates starting at $2,400 a night.  We are looking forward to bringing things to another level here in our backyard.

Along with the hotel, I am excited to share some incredible news with you regarding a remarkable opportunity for luxury living in one of Costa Rica’s most breathtaking regions. Waldorf Astoria Residences Costa Rica, nestled atop the Punta Cacique peninsula, is set to redefine barefoot luxury living in the country’s healthiest province, Guanacaste.

Get in While You Can

Get in While You Can. 

The Papagayo Region of Guanacaste is reaching lift off velocity and you are about to be left behind.  Let’s be fair – We have been preaching to everyone who has shown a twinkle of an interest in buying property here that you need to get something before prices get out of reach and the selection becomes less attractive.  Let’s also be very clear.  There is still time for you to act – but we can’t keep the dogs at bay much longer for you.  You need to stop procrastinating and get your little slice of heaven now.  So far we have been lucky that Costa Rica has not allowed breakneck development and have held their ground by never allowing high rise beachfront developments, like Cancun, in our area.  This has actually made the rest of the non beach front property even more valuable. 

 So here we are with the perfect scenario for you to grab something before the big boys move in and drive prices up.  but don’t get comfortable because technically the big boys are already here and have started quietly and now with a slow crescendo are moving in and taking over.
