About Us

So, if you have decided  to build a home in Uvita, Dominical, Ojochal or the surrounding areas of Perez Zeledon /San Isidro, there are various factors to consider above and beyond just finding a builder in the town of Uvita, and Central Pacific Zone. That’s the easy part. Having the General contractor and/or builder in Uvita, Dominical, or even Ojochal who is geared towards quality, and warranties their work is another matter.

Finding an honest and capable building contractor in the Southern Pacidic Zone which encompasses Dominical, Uvita and Ojochal presents its own unique set of challenges.

Foreigners, whether from The United States or Europe, have historically been seen as potential targets for fraud and general dishonesty in a variety of areas. Building a home in Costa Rica, specifically the Southern Pacific Zone (DOMINICAL, UVITA, OJOCHAL) is a daunting task and should inspire the informed decision to use real qualified professionals. The alternative has a historically unpleasant narrative.

Finding those who are not ethically challenged, and are truly capable of offering you turnkey services with a new, well built home are not easy to come by.

There are three possible outcomes when using those local builders in Uvita and Dominical and its neighbour to the South, Ojochal.

Local builders have either historically cut corners with material, abandoned a job outright, or have begun crying “poverty” when they’ve run out of funds to finish a build.

Which was underbid just to obtain the job.

The result typically is a mediocre, substandard home which then will generate a lifetime of problems. Why not build a home with a 2year warranty using a high end builder in Uvita and the Southern Pacific Zone?

We at Green Built Costa Rica, working in Uvita and Ojochal, as well as the mountain outskirts of San Isidro, offer a far better and more comprehensive solution to the unique challenges presented when contemplating the decision to relocate and or invest in rental income property in the Southern Pacific Zone.  We’ve got you covered from Quepos to Uvita, then 15 minutes south to Ojochal.

We are always in compliance with all building standards in this seismically active country, as established by the Association of Engineers and Architects of Costa Rica.

Compliance in Uvita doesn’t just end with building codes.

Compliance must now extend to the legal and taxation issues for Hacienda and Tributacion in Dominical and Uvita.  It is a must if you’re going to invest in property which produces substantial rental income in the Southern Pacific Zone. Banking regulations have changed and non-compliance brings substantial penalties. Why not let our Legal and Accounting team ensure legal tax compliance, and by extension, your peace of mind? Shouldn’t your substantial investment in Uvita and Dominical be protected?


The areas of Dominical, Ojochal, and Uvita are nature sensitive.

All construction should consider the natural characteristics of each specific build site found in Uvita and Dominical, such as the direction of rain and winds, sun movement over the course of the year, temperature and erosion control. The finished product must be a functional structure that complements the natural beauty of the surroundings, creating a sustainable footprint in exchange for the privilege of living in harmony with nature. We can talk about solar panel systems as well

At Green Built Costa Rica, working in Uvita, Ojochal and Dominical, we address the smallest of design details integrating functionality with aesthetics. The results consider real life conditions where the structure will be built, while incorporating modern and tropical design concepts that are in compliance with all building standards of the country, and specifically the Southern pacific Zone.

For seismic code compliance and quality standards, we add materials that improve the landscape using Morejon Stone, slab, gravel, granite, Coralina Stone, among other products. Should the customer prefer, we can use imported materials direct from Bali, Indonesia and custom fabricate unique details.

Green Built Costa Rica’s construction in Costa Rica, specifically in the Southern Pacific Zone, goes way beyond the average or typical build, delivering an outstanding product so you can sleep well at night. You will rest assured knowing that your investment was built using products that will maintain your satisfaction over the coming decades.
