Costa Rica’s Parkside Residences

A new residential resort on the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica will comprise 240 homes along the edge of the country’s most popular national park, with untouched white sand beaches and 4,000 acres of lush wildlife just steps away. Jade Condo Resort Residences and Beach Club, a Wyndham-branded hotel that broke ground in March, is located on a hillside of the northwestern end of Manuel Antonio National Park. The resort offers one- and two-bedroom residences and four different fully furnished floor plans, each featuring stone floors and large private terraces with views of the Pacific. Prices range from $250,000 to $1.5 million for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom residence. Also under construction: a private oceanfront beach club with a lazy river pool and nearby café and bar, a Latin-fusion restaurant, spa, and fitness center. There are also plans to build an additional 50 two- to three-bedroom private condos next year. Construction is expected to be completed by December 2010. (www.jademanuelantonio.com)
