The Costa Rican Community of Las Catalinas

I know several people that have vacationed in Costa Rica just to take advantage of the great surf. A couple I know even spent their honeymoon there for the sole purpose of riding the waves. But not everyone in California loves to surf, including me. You won’t get me in the water although I absolutely love being near it or on it. It’s my happy place. While Costa Rica hasn’t particularly been high on my list of places to visit, it did pique my interest after reading the current issue of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle Magazine. It features a new beachside community known as Las Catalinas located on the Guanacaste Coast of Costa Rica. I will admit that the gorgeous pictures are what initially caught my eye. But given that I have a background in urban planning with studies and a strong interest in architecture and design, the article was particularly intriguing. It even led me down a rabbit hole to find out more about this new community and check out the official website for Las Catalinas, which is chock full of information.las catalinas costa rica via reviving charm

The history of Las Catalinas stems back to 2006 when the property was originally purchased. It’s taken over ten years to create this master planned community that is every bit as lush and stylish as one would expect in a vacation destination. However, the community isn’t solely seeking tourists and they continue to solicit for a full-time population. Interested?

Atlanta-based interior designer Beth Webb is intimately familiar with Las Catalinas after designing several homes in the community, including the one highlighted today. Her gorgeous blue and white interiors coupled with the beautiful blue waters make we want to dive into each and every picture. And when my friends head back to Costa Rica for the surf I might have to take them up on their offer to let me tag along. However, I’ll trade a surfboard for a seaside rental in Las Catalinas any day! las catalinas costa rica beth webb 6las catalinas costa rica beth webb 2las catalinas costa rica beth webb 10las catalinas costa rica beth webb 7las catalinas costa rica beth webb 8las catalinas costa rica beth webb 11las catalinas costa rica beth webb 5las catalinas costa rica beth webb 9las catalinas costa rica beth webb 4las catalinas costa rica beth webblas catalinas costa rica beth webb 1las catalinas costa rica beth webb 1a
