Playa Grande


Playa Grande has an interesting real estate situation being bordered by a national park, it is important to check cautiously the titles of the properties reason why we use the most knowledgeable and trusted firm in the area called Invicta Legal.

Many lots within the buffer zone cannot be built until there are clarifications about the density of construction although there is a few opportunities and also an expanding gated community called Las Ventanas offering lots that are permitted to built starting around $90k.

Las Ventanas is the most successful community in Playa Grande and offers amazing amenities and views, check our Las Ventanas listing page here.

The beach at Playa Grande is a national park where the leatherback turtles nest during the season.

There are excellent and consistent surfing waves in Playa Grande which is considered one of the best beach-breaks in the country.

Playa Grande real estate is mostly single family homes and lots for future development but also a few B&B and hotels generating good income.

There are few development parcels close to the beach but there are more inland.

There are only two condominium projects built in Playa Grande at this time.

Playa Grande is a calm area  mostly residential but counting a few good restaurants and a small supermarket.

Prices vary from $50k for an undeveloped lot further from the beach to beachfront homes in the millions.
