Why would you buy a home with a fireplace in Costa Rica, isn’t that a totally crazy idea? No, it is not, it’s actually a fantastic idea, depending on where you want to live. How can you reduce the cold and get cozy in Costa Rica?
Since mankind discovered fire, we were smart enough to use it to keep warm. In some countries, a fireplace is the focal point of the home but is only meant to make it cozy.
Is it so cold in Costa Rica that you need a home with a fireplace to stay warm during the winter days? Do you really need to reduce the cold when you live in Costa Rica?
You probably already heard that Costa Rica has all these interesting microclimates all over the country. You kind of pick the climate that you adjust to best. Some love the heat and others love the cold. The higher you go, the cooler it gets and Costa Rica is full of mountains. The lower you go, the warmer it gets. On the beach, you might even need air conditioning.
For cool-climate lovers
In Costa Rica, we have more heat than cold, especially if you live in a coastal area. But even in the coastal areas there are mountains, and the views are usually spectacular. Hence, there are many luxury homes with fireplaces and ocean views.
We also sell properties for cool-climate lovers. All over the country! Our MLS gives the option to either purchase a property in a warm or even a cool climate in and outside the Central Valley.
