We asked foreigners in Costa Rica what appliances are typically included in a rental, and, if there is anything else included or not included that a newcomer would not expect. Replies included...

"Generally rental properties are fully applianced. Lower scale rental units will have the basics, no dishwasher, possibly only a stove top and not an oven. A washer may be included but generally not a dryer. On the higher end scale, these will be fully appliances with American style refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer. Be especially observant if the condo complex has a community área with tables, chairs, sink/wáter availability, bathrooms and BBQ grill. This is especially attractive for entertaining friends and family," remarked another expat who made the move to Playa Jaco (Jaco Beach), Costa Rica.

"In Costa Rica, the typical appliances found in a rental property include a fridge, stove, washing machine, and air conditioning. In some cases, additional items such as a dishwasher, clothes dryer, and microwave may also be provided. Utilities such as electricity and water will also generally be included in the cost of rent," explained one expat living in Costa Rica.
