Mixed-use properties in  Costa Rica are a combination of different types of uses in the same property, such as commercial, residential and offices. This allows a property to be used for various purposes, increasing its value and versatility.

One of the main advantages of investing in mixed-use properties is that they can generate income from its commercial and residential use. This means that in case one of the areas is not generating enough income, the property can still be profitable thanks to the other areas.

Strategic location in mixed-use properties

Mixed-use properties are usually located in strategic areas, where the demand for services and housing is high, making them an attractive and profitable investment. By having a combination of uses, they are more attractive to tenants and potential buyers, as it gives them the possibility of having multiple services and amenities in one place.

This means that they tend to be located in urban areas, near shopping malls, hospitals, schools, universities, and other essential services.

In addition, in Costa Rica, mixed-use properties can also be located in tourist areas or with high commercial activity. The demand for services and accommodation in these zones are important, which can result in higher returns for investors.
