While the Costa Rica real estate market is readily attracting foreigners leading to a boom in real estate and property investment, it isn’t just expats and retirees that are flocking to the beautiful beaches and attractive options for owning real estate in Costa Rica. In the past few years, more and more celebrities are learning how wonderful living in Costa Rica really is. It seems the laidback lifestyle of Pura Vida and spectacular beaches are luring in the rich and famous, making Costa Rica the new Malibu.
Stars like Beyonce, who most recently attended her best friend Kelly Rowland’s wedding in Costa Rica, Gisele, Madonna and other A-listers frequently choose Costa Rica’s coastlines as their top vacation spots, some celebrities can’t resist Costa Rica’s idyllic beaches and have decided to make it their second home by purchasing property in Costa Rica.
From Gisele to Madonna & More, Celebrities Love to Call Costa Rica Their Home Away from Home
Here are a few celebrities who claim Costa Rica as their home away from home:
Since 2007 Playa Barrigona has been home to the famous actor Mel Gibson, because he wanted to escape from insistent and annoying journalists and reporters (photo shown above is the interior of Gibson’s Costa Rica estate). Therefore Costa Rica became his retreat to get away from the everyday stress a celebrity has to face in Hollywood.
Obviously, Gibson is not the only one struggling with paparazzi. One of the reasons why Costa Rica is such a popular destination for stars is rather simple: standing out with its lush landscapes and remote, breathtaking tropical beaches, the Central American country also offers a working infrastructure and highly coveted privacy. It’s not surprising that the list of celebrities buying real estate in Costa Rica is constantly growing.
Only shortly after Gibson’s investment, Britney Spears became his neighbor and purchased a property in that area as well. Also Charlie Sheen bought an exclusive luxury home in one of Costa Rica’s resort areas.
Some other Hollywood stars that have property in Costa Rica are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Chuck Norris, Danny Devito, Bruce Willis, Steven Segal, Billy Crystal and Tim Robbins.
But besides Hollywood’s celebrities, Costa Rica welcomes some famous athletes like Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal and Tom Brady – who along with his supermodel wife, Gisele Bündchen, owns a home in Santa Teresa where they spend many vacations with their family and friends.
The tennis stars Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf established a sports and vacation club near Playa de Cocos.
Also, famous musicians like Madonna, Enrique Iglesias and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler enjoy the luxury and privacy provided by their Costa Rican homes.
