Flying firmly under the radar, Playa Marbella seems tailor-made for people who seek a slice of paradise off the beaten path and far from the tourist throngs. When you first arrive, you may wonder if you’ve somehow stumbled upon a hidden beach – and that’s a huge part of the appeal, for people who love hidden beaches, incredible surf, and a taste of rural Costa Rica.
Because Playa Marbella is still somewhat undiscovered, it’s also somewhat undeveloped. That makes for a small, but growing real estate market that extends from small building lots and affordable homes to breathtaking luxury properties and unparalleled development opportunities.
Prices start around $75,000 for lots and homesites and $300,000 for single-family homes and villas. Luxury properties start at around $750,000.
