In Costa Rica, they actually don’t have four seasons. Like many countries in the tropics, it’s just rainy season or dry season. Dry season runs from mid-December to about late April. So, arriving in “spring” will get you there at the tail end.
In the Central Valley, which is actually a high elevation plateau surrounding the capital, San Jose, the climate is actually spring-like year-round…even in the tropics. It’s to do with the elevation, which keeps temps cool at night and warm but not hot during the day. This, plus rich volcanic soil and plenty of rain in rainy season means you can enjoy beautiful flowers, lush greenery, and fresh fruits and vegetables from trees and gardens on your own property year-round.
The town of Grecia on the western edge of the valley is popular with expats, especially retirees, seeking a quiet rural existence. Most live outside of town, on the hills and ridges that surround it, which are covered in coffee plantations—some of the best coffee in the world is grown here. However, the capital of Costa Rica, San Jose is just about an hour away. That means big city shopping, the international airport, and the country’s best medical care are close at hand. The best of both worlds.
This three-bedroom home, set on 1.27 acres, was built in 2016 and overlooking the verdant valley below. It’s adjacent to a patch of jungle, and there are several mature fruit trees on the property. There is a separate one-bedroom apartment, which would be perfect for visiting guests or something you could rent out to travelers, snowbirds, or even full-time expats.
