Why Is Costa Rica Stable In Current Markets Costa Ricas real estate market is funded by private capital and foreign buyers. Whereas the market in the United States is critically dependent on high leverage financing products, institutional financing and the job market, all of which have been recently decimated. During the first six months of 2008, despite slowing US economic growth, as well as rising global food, fuel and airline prices, international arrivals to Costa Rica increased 12% over the same period last year. This statistic follows a ten year compound average growth rate in arrivals of over 9%. With the expected explosion of retiring baby boomers, demand for property in Costa Rica, a world Blue Zone, is poised for long-term growth driven by lifestyle, climate and health care. Other popular markets like Mexico are less attractive due to high prices, taxes and crime. Increase in taxes, general cost of living and health care cost in traditional retirement markets like California, Arizona and Florida make Costa Rica the standout choice in a growing movement towards being a global citizen
