Buying property in Costa Rica

foreigners have the same rights when purchasing land in Costa Ricaas locals do.  You can own property outright in your own name or in the name of your corporation.  You do not need a local partner, except in cases of beachfront concession property, where special rules apply.  There is absolutely nothing to prevent you from purchasing property in your own name, but the majority of buyers form a corporation with the help of a reputable lawyer and then purchase Costa Rica property through that corporation.
