To the west of the hustle and bustle of the capital city of San Jose, lies the small town of Atenas, Costa Rica. The rural town of farms and coffee plantations sits on the far edge of the country’s Central Valley, where the steep mountains spill down to the Central Pacific Coast.
Atenas is known for having one of the best climates in the world – more sunny days than rainy and moderate temperatures. The reputation has made Atenas a major international retirement destination. AARP, the largest association of retired people in the world, calls Atenas a top 10 place to retire abroad, putting Atenas Costa Rica real estate in high demand.
