If you are interested in purchasing land only, a piece of land can be purchased in the mountain areas of Costa Rica from $1,000 to $5,000 per acre, or if you prefer the ocean, land goes for $10,000 to $30,000 per acre.

Far from the cities, a piece of land can be bought in the mountains and highlands from $1,000 to $5,000 per acre. The lots with ocean views go for $10,000 to $30,000 per acre and the beachfronts begin from $50,000 per acre. If the investor decides to buy in volume, some 40-50 acre parcels or a bigger lot, the prices could even drop by half.
