"A typical expat home or apartment in Puerto Viejo, often reflects the tropical and relaxed lifestyle of the area. These homes are usually designed to blend in with the natural surroundings, with large windows and open spaces to allow for plenty of natural light and air circulation. Many homes are built with local materials such as teak wood and bamboo, and feature high ceilings, tiled floors, and spacious patios or balconies. The homes often have two or three bedrooms, a living room, a fully equipped kitchen, and one or two bathrooms. Some homes may also have a separate guest house or a small pool. The interiors are typically decorated in a casual, beachy style, with comfortable furniture, bright colors, and tropical plants. Most expat homes in Puerto Viejo are located within walking distance to the beach, and many have beautiful views of the ocean or the jungle. They are usually situated in safe, friendly neighborhoods, close to local amenities such as shops, restaurants, and schools. Despite the rustic, laid-back vibe, many homes in Puerto Viejo are equipped with modern amenities such as Wi-Fi, air conditioning, and hot water. Some may also have a laundry room, a garage, or a garden. In terms of cost, expat homes in Puerto Viejo can vary greatly, depending on factors such as location, size, and amenities. However, in general, the cost of living in Puerto Viejo is considered to be lower than in many other parts of Costa Rica, making it an attractive option for many expats," commented one expat who made the move to Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica.
