Rosario Araya A. has over 15 years of legal experience advising clients about investments in Costa Rica, especially in the fields of real estate, developments and construction. She started out working as a private attorney for several long-term clients. Over time she decided to add to those successful, ongoing relationships by expanding her horizons and providing legal services to others by starting her own law firm, Pacific Coast Law.
As a Lawyer and Public Notary, Rosario has helped clients safely navigate Costa Rica’s legal system for purchasing real estate. Rosario and her amazing team value and appreciate their clients, and work to take care of client investments in the same way as they would their own. Rosario has experience in real estate acquisition, plus commercial, environmental, and labor law. Rosario is recommended by the US Embassy in Costa Rica.
Rosario earned her Bachelor’s and Law degrees from the well-respected “Escuela Libre de Derecho” in San José, where she graduated with honors. Furthermore, she had the opportunity to be taught by professors who are now magistrates of the Supreme Court, also known as the Constitutional Court, as well as judges and lawyers of the main State Powers within Costa Rica. Rosario joined the Costa Rica Bar Association in 2007.
In addition to being a lawyer and Public Notary, Rosario is devoted to her kids, husband and loves to apply critical thinking to everything she does in her life, in addition to using it to help others protect their investments.
