Reserva Conchal is one of the finest beachfront resorts in Central America, and they say those who buy property here may find their lives fundamentally transformed.
Oneness with nature is the mantra at this sprawling eco-resort, which boasts 2,300 acres of green and developed space, a world-class golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II, the Marriott-branded Westin, and W hotels, and the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica.
It’s also home to over a dozen housing developments, each with its style and character, featuring ready-to-build lots, single-family homes, and luxury condominiums. Whether you’re ready to move your family to Costa Rica or you’re looking for a vacation home to generate rental income, Conchal offers an astonishing inventory of sumptuous options.
Sometimes compared to the Four Seasons farther north, Reserva Conchal
offers a distinct advantage over Papagayo in that it’s close to towns, grocery stores, reasonably priced restaurants, schools, medical clinics, and banks. Located just south of Brasilito, Conchal is a short drive from all these conveniences, and it’s about an hour from the international airport in Liberia.
Playa Conchal, often called the prettiest beach in the country, has sand made of tiny fragments from white seashells crushed by erosion. It faces a beautiful, warm bay along a striking crescent of coastline surrounded by frog-green foliage.
Reserva Conchal offers a 96-acre wildlife reserve with hiking and biking trails. It has over a dozen restaurants, a first-rate beach club, two luxury spas, fitness centers, and an adventure park
with ziplining and horseback riding.
This is the kind of place that gives you few reasons to leave.
