I plan to retire in Costa Rica. Why not in Puerto Viejo? If of course I could purchase a piece of land there near the sea. Is there land available at reasonable prices. (3-6 hectares)?

Land prices are fairly reasonable but don't expect giveaway prices. Prices for land are generally quoted per square meter. Land prices in the Puerto Viejo area can range from about $10 per m2 to $100+/m2. A hectare is 10,000 m2 and an acre is 4047 m2 so you can do the math there and see you'll pay at least $500,000 USD for a 5 ha piece near the coast.

There are no local and gringo prices, everyone pays the same. The only difference between rules for Costa Ricans and foreigners have to do with the first 250 meters of coastline. In Costa Rican law no one can own that land but you can only get a permission to use it and that permission must be held by a Costa Rican. However, even that small restriction is easily overcome by establishing a Costa Rican corporation. Some cities have exemptions to the 250m rules but in the South Caribbean nothing is finalized.

The other thing to keep in mind in the Puerto Viejo area is that much of the land is the Gandoca-Manzanillo refuge and so there are very restricted covenants about what you do on the land.
