One of the most beautiful beaches in Central America is home to a collection of unforgettable luxury homes Costa Rica hugging the Pacific Ocean. Playa Flamingo is nicknamed the ‘Monte Carlo of Costa Rica’ where luxury yachts and sailboats decorate the bay. Playa Flamingo in Guanacaste is located away from the busier Tamarindo Beach, an area popular for Costa Rica vacations. It’s the perfect place to watch spectacular sunsets and enjoy the cool ocean breeze on the unpopulated beaches. One of the most beautiful Guanacaste gated communities, The Palms private residence club is secluded and situated at the end of a cove for maximum privacy. Arguably, Playa Flamingo could be considered by many the best place to live in Costa Rica. 

Oceanfront vacation homes at The Palms are not a typical casita. The 34 private residences in this upscale gated community offer unrivaled luxuries such as marble floors, luxurious baths, and high quality finishes. Villas overlook the lush tropical gardens and the oceanfront infinity edge pool. The 2 and 3 bedroom villas have floor to ceiling glass and large patios to capture the stunning views of the ocean from sunrise to sunset. Villas can be included in the rental pool to provide owners with income or exchange privileges during time periods when folks won't be using them. Rental rates range from $650 a night to over $1,000 with a minimum two night stay. The Palms Private Residence Club is a great way to try out one of the best Guanacaste gated communities for a fraction of the price. A 1/10th ownership price is currently $129K with monthly dues of $471. Deeded memberships at The Palms can be passed down to children and grandchildren.

Developer Credibility

According to the sales team, development of The Palms began in early 2000 and stalled. Sales resumed again in 2012. We're uncertain who the developer is however as of December 2014, they are offering 50% financing of the purchase price for 5 years with interest only payments. This is a strong statement of financial strength.
