Las Catalinas Announces New “Fly & Buy Program” Launching on Black Friday

GUANACASTE, COSTA RICA, November 6, 2023 — To celebrate Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Travel Tuesday, the Las Catalinas Residential Sales Team is offering their very first “Fly & Buy Program” for those interested in making the picturesque walkable town along the pacific Gold Coast of Costa Rica, Las Catalinas their home.  This program is designed to provide an exciting opportunity to visit Las Catalinas, explore its beaches, surrounding hiking and biking trails, and the Well-Living lifestyle of this car-free, coastal town. Las Catalinas has partnered with on-site travel agent experts, Beach Town Travel to ensure accommodations and travel arrangements are seamless.

Since its inception, the pedestrian-friendly town based on New Urbanism principles has seen visitors come down for a quick or extended vacation and later turn into full or part-time residents.  In June of 2023, Las Catalinas began construction on the first single-family home in El Prado, the town’s next phase of development. The Houston, Texas family has been coming down to Las Catalinas for ten years. The inspiration for the design of their home, which is slated for completion in early 2024 stemmed from walking through town in Las Catalinas during their many visits and appreciating the lifestyle that the town offers. After a decade of vacationing in Las Catalinas, the family’s dream of owning a home in this seaside town is now a reality.

Creating opportunities for better balanced living with a greater connection to nature is at the forefront of the car-free, coastal town of Las Catalinas.  Las Catalinas began conceptualizing a compact master plan in 2006 that set out to implement a better way of living for the people who live, work and vacation there. Almost totally car-free, the town and its textured hardscapes encourage maximum human-to-human interaction in a setting that harmonizes people with nature. Taking cars out of the equation means people spend more time outdoors on foot (or on bike) creating opportunities for spontaneous interactions, conversations, and impromptu socialization.  The new “Fly & Buy Program” is aimed to offer visitors an opportunity to experience the town on a vacation with friends and family or solo and see what the town has to offer first-hand.

“Costa Rica continues to be a place for peace and Las Catalinas has become a place for people to thrive in otherwise trying global times,” said Renae Johnson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Las Catalinas.  “It seems now is the exact right time to offer the world an urban setting with the amenities and services of a gateway city surrounded by a natural and tranquil environment. Increasingly there is a shift in people’s desire to seek a connection to nature, to themselves, and to find a tribe of like-minded people focused on living well – something that comes naturally to residents in Las Catalinas. We hope this new special program is a way to offer those seeking to flourish, an opportunity to visit and make Costa Rica home.”
