The architectural style of Las Ventanas was chosen as an adaptation to Guanacaste’s ecosystem and native climate in order to function and blend in with the natural landscape – a dry tropical forest. Signature features of custom luxury homes include open spaces, large sliding glass doors, and overhangs that provide natural light, energy efficiency through cross-ventilation construction and covered alfresco verandas, rain or shine.

Las Ventanas is surrounded by breathtaking natural landscapes, wildlife conservation areas, and environmentally protected lands. The community takes pride in owning its water concessions, eliminating the hassle of individual water management and sharing the cost among neighbors through the reasonable HOA fees ($310/month).
Within a 30 minute drive there are 7 private schools and nearly 30 miles of beaches. School buses run from Las Ventanas to the private schools and also to after-school surf lessons nearby in Playa Grande. Playa Grande is famous for its year long surfing with consistent waves.
