Costa Rica condos for rent are a great option for someone who will be traveling periodically. Most condominiums are built with block and rebar construction between units that is great for sound isolation, but some are built with cheaper materials.
Usually condominiums in Costa Rica are rented at a monthly rate with the tenant paying the utilties: electricity, water, cable, and internet. Most of the time the owner pays the condominium fees due to the common areas, the insurance, and the property taxes. It is important to establish these terms in the lease.
Condos for rent in Costa Rica vary a great deal in style. At the beach, you can find modern, colonial, Key West, urban, Italian and many other architectural influences. In a few beach areas such as Tamarindo and Jaco, there are condominium towers with ocean views, but this is not common in the country. The more common types of condos in the beach are two story town house type units with bedrooms upstairs and living areas downstairs or one story units stacked in buildings up to 4 stories.
In the city, many new condo towers have sprouted up around Parque La Sabana, as developers attempt to imitate the Central Park feeling of New York. However, there are also many town houses available as well.
Occassionaly, single family homes are built with a condominium framework from a legal standpoint, and thus have common areas and shared amenities.
Typical condominium amenities in Costa Rica include swimming pools, security, gated access, elevators, gymnasiums, covered parking, play structures for children and clubhouses.
