Karen Real Estate marked its 13th year of business with the launch of a compelling new website design at, allowing potential clients to search properties with ease and efficacy by both area and realty type. Now it is just as easy to browse by Costa Rica’s seven provinces – Alajuela, Cartago, Guanacaste, Heredia, Limon, Puntarenas and San Jose – as it is by the seven major genres of Costa Rica real estate – beach properties, businesses, condos, farms, homes, hotels and land.

In addition to providing detailed property descriptions and comprehensive photos, also presents environmentally relevant features ranging from Ecologically Friendly Tips to Organic Compost, plus an indispensible fire sale section. Spotlight articles provide practical and up-to-the-minute information that aids inquisitive buyers, primarily from the United States and Canada, in making the leap to invest in Costa Rica.

“We wanted to expand the criteria and how you can search, making the site more user-friendly,” says Chris Prasad, Karen Real Estate’s marketing manager. “If a visitor has the dream of owning a condo in Escazu or a home in Guanacaste, or just wants to do research to see what’s on sale, it’s all very easy to navigate. Since revamping, we’ve seen much better ranking and significantly more hits.”

According to the Tico Times and the Costa Rican branch of NAI Global (the premier international network of commercial real estate firms), now is the time to be making such enhancements. The country is experiencing an economic upswing in real estate, which can be attributed at least in part to the fact that national banks are unfurling credit lines for residents that were closed for all of 2009. To a large extent, market improvements also reflect the recovering status of affairs in the U.S.A.

Question by just_da_fax: I’ve heard that the bugs are bad in Costa Rica during a certain time of year. When is that time of year?
We are planning a trip to Costa Rica and would prefer to avoid the “buggy” season that we have heard about. Not sure if it coincides with the Green season, or if it is only at the beginning of the Green season, or if it is some other time. Also, we might expect that it might be different for different parts of the country. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

What is the best time of year to visit Costa Rica?

Question by traveler: What is the best time of year to visit Costa Rica?
My sister and I would like to visit Costa Rica sometime in 2008. Does anybody know what the best month is to visit in terms of avoiding a lot of rain? I know it’s tropical and varied, but I heard some parts of the year are best avoided. What are those times to avoid? Thanks!

I went to the Caribbean coast in March of 2005. All of the weather reports told us it was raining, raining, raining. When we were finally able to speak to the person at our hotel, he told us they’d been in a drought for months. The whole time we were there (7 days) it rained once at night. It is hard to get good weather info on line, your best bet is to communicate with those who are actually there.
