Smooth Sailing in Costa Rica Amid Global Financial Storm

Costa Rica is ranked the 8th most stable country in the world according to a study by The Economist Intelligence Unit.  They identified the most politically and economically stable countries using 17 measures that encompass social structures, economic statistics, political structure and history.  The report was compiled from a comprehensive study of 164 nations with the top 10 being:

1. Norway
2. Denmark
3. Canada
4. Sweden
5. Finland
6. Switzerland
7. Mauritius
8. Costa Rica
9. New Zealand
10. Luxembourg

Other notable rankings include: USA 56th, Nicaragua 77th, Mexico 87th, and Panama is ranked 131st. 
 
One of the fundamental reasons why Costa Rica maintains a strong position during global weakness is its solid real estate values.  Costa Rica’s real estate market remains stable because private and foreign buyers primarily drive it.  Whereas the market in the United States in critically dependent on institutional financing and the job market, both of which have been recently decimated.  With the expected explosion of retiring baby boomers, demand for property in Costa Rica is poised for long-term growth.  Furthermore, other popular retirement locations like Mexico are less attractive now because of increased crime, while high taxes, expensive health care, and general cost of living plague Florida and Arizona. 
 
Costa Rica is a developing country.  By definition, a developing country is in a state of growth.  It now boasts an unemployment rate less than that of the United States and has some of the best social indicators on the planet.  Road conditions are not only improving dramatically, but as new highway initiatives are completed, the country’s key locations will be connected, thus creating more efficient business transportation as well as offering the tourist ease of transit between destinations. 
 
With a history of stability, Costa Rica is more protected than its North American and European counterparts during any crisis, because of its unique political stability, strong social structures, a large middle class, and a strict lending environment.  Credit has always been difficult to obtain and there is a cultural lack of consumerism.  These stable financial indicators combined with an educated work force and investment-friendly tax policies will continue to keep Costa Rica’s economy stable. 
 
Even though the world economy is gloomy, and no country is completely immune from the fallout, Costa Rica presents a positive and exciting alternative for those desperately seeking some calmer waters.

Coastal Highway South Of Quepos To Be Finished This Year

The end of work on the Costanera Sur (or Coastal Highway South) is in sight. The transport ministry said that by the end of the year, the entire 42 kilometers (26 miles) between Quepos and Dominical will be paved. The improved road will significantly reduce the driving time from San Jose to Ventana del Pacifico .. This is a considered to be a major infrastructure improvement valued at almost $40 million that will greatly increase accessibility to the southern region.

The project is seen as a boon to tourism and a way to reduce traffic in the Central Valley.

In addition, transport officials said that critical bridges should be finished by the middle of the year. Work had been stopped by damage sustained from the October floods.

The Costanera Sur already has been graded. That was a $17.7 million job that included installing drainage systems.

The final paving is in two contracts. Consorcio Meco-Santa Fe has the job between Savegre and Quepos. That stretch is about 19 kilometers (about 13 miles) and will cost $16.4 million. The section from Savegre to Dominical is 22.6 kilometers (about 14 miles) and the responsibility of Constructora Solís-Sánchez Carvajal. The contract is for $15.5 million.

In both sections the workers will install a 30-centimeter (12-inch) sub base, a 20-centimeter (eight-inch) base and a 13-centimeter (5.1-inch) road surface.

The Costanera Sur was one of those projects that was much talked about and promised by every administration for the last 30 years because of the obvious beneficial impact on the area along the central Pacific coast.

When the road is finished, trucks can easily go north and south along the coast without traveling on the Interamerican highway that goes through San José and Cartago. That is possible now but the condition of the road makes travel risky in bad weather. Trucks from the north and south also will be able to avoid crossing the central mountains twice to go from one border to the other.

The Meco-Santa Fe contract has a deadline of eight months. The Solís-Sánchez Carvajal has a 10-month deadline, according to the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes. However, there are provisions for extensions if bad weather intervenes.

Most of the bridges on the road also are expected to be finished by the middle of the year. The span at Parrita, a $3.7 million job will have a cycle path and a pedestrian walkway. A bridge over the Río Naranjo is valued at $2.8 million.

Bridges at Hatillo Viejo and Hatillo Nuevo are already underway and workers just began to rebuild and widen a bridge over the Río Savegre.

Costa Rica – The Most Democratic Nation in Latin America

According to the annual Latin American Index of Democratic Development released in September, Costa Rica holds the top stop for democratic nations. The study concluded that half of Latin American countries have a low level of democratic development. Only the 3 countries with the highest scores (Costa Rica, Chile and Uruguay) have not been subject to any crisis in recent times. This is Costa Rica’s first year in the top spot showing a 6% improvement over last year’s scores. Regarding social indicators, Costa Rica saw its ratings soar in 2008. This is a strong sign that Costa Rica is a solid place to live and invest.

Ventana del Pacifico’s Phase 9 Passes Final Segregation

Our Phase 9 project, also known as Palm of the Tropic, just completed the last step in the long process of preparing a development for titles to transfer. It can take several years from the inception of a development, to getting permits to begin the infrastructure such as roads, water and electricity. All of our properties are registered to protect the buyer because of our obligation to provide these basic services. There are at least seven levels of approvals with different government branches and utilities that must be met prior to getting final segregation. With final segregation, the titles can be legally transferred to owners who have fully paid for their properties and we will be contacting them shortly. Also on the horizon are final approvals for Phase 10, or Natural Waterfall of Osa, as we wait for new water regulation approvals to be completed.

The Brand New Hospital de Osa is Now Open and Just Minutes from our Chontales Project

After only about a year in construction, the promised new hospital for the area – Hospital de Osa – officially opened its doors in May 2008. It replaces the older, out-dated hospital in Cortes which is now closed. The Hospital de Osa is a state-of-the-art facility covering over 80,000 square feet in multiple buildings. There are 23 departments with 10 general practice doctors plus 7 medical specialists all supported by 30 nurses. The hospital is available to everyone including non-residents and tourists and the quality of healthcare provided is superior (as reported by members of our staff and property owners that have already had to use the services available).

Caldera Highway Work from San Jose to Jaco is Well Underway

Construction began recently west of San Jose on the first phase of the long-awaited Caldera highway project, which will provide a much faster route to the Pacific coast. Plans for the 77 kilometer (48 mile) highway have been in the works for years and have finally broken free of bureaucratic quicksand. The project carries a $230 million price take and construction will cost motorists extra time as it will temporarily increase congestion even with the implementation of numerous traffic management plans. The existing route is a slow, winding, two-lane highway that crosses the Aguacate pass while the new highway could reduce travel time between San Jose and Jaco by as much as an hour. This is a significant savings and offers more accessibility to the central and south Pacific coastal areas of Costa Rica where Ventana del Pacifico is located.
