Right of Possession

Sun down - Playa tambor
Most property in Costa Rica you find that is along the coast will have the "Right of Possession" but very few have the full blown Concession. Without the Concession, you can't construct anything. There are those who build without the Concession and those properties are in danger of having their buildings razed. And it most certainly happens. The government of Costa Rica has made it very clear that the system in place is the system to be enforced.

Beach - Isla Tortuga
In regards to development and building, the Costa Rica government also has in place certain environmental impact studies which control certain elements that are key to the eco-systems in different areas. Some of these restrictions would be in regards to water systems such as rivers, streams, ponds and lakes as well as protected trees, plants and groves. There is an abundance of "Green" zoning in Costa Rica and most investors look for parts of their property to be "Green" zones. Green zone restricts any and all building. Also, dependent upon the region, tampering with water ways or systems is also not allowed. Usually, you are not allowed to build, alter or construct within 15 meters (30 feet) of either side of a water system.
