Huacas, Costa Rica

This traditional town’s land has mostly been used for agriculture in the past, but its proximity to many Guanacaste attractions and popular beach towns (including the largest Guanacaste beach town of Tamarindo a mere 15 minutes away) has made it popular place for people to tend to business and shopping. This popularity allows Huacas to offer many commercial opportunities for those wanting to establish businesses in the area.
Huacas’s current businesses include restaurants, pharmacies, a large grocery store, dental offices, beauty salons, clothing and shoe stores, toy stores, high end furniture stores, and much more.

Further, Huacas’s prime location near many beautiful beaches including the stunning Playa Grande warrants serious consideration from many wanting to reside or invest in residential real estate in the area.
