Depends on a few factors. Distance from town, materials used, whether or not you need a cistern etc. But roughly a basic concrete house reinforced with steel rebar, glass/vinyl windows, ceramic tiles will cost between $100 and $150 US per square foot.

It also depends on what your contractor is like. We have built here and learned the hard way. Feel free to PM me.

renski,
Our Casita (3.5 miles north of town) ran approx. $185.00US per sq. ft. in 2005. collyk hit the nail on the head. PM her if you are considering building on the island.

A condo sale includes the cost of land within the square footage price. Condos on the beach typically run around $300 - 350 US per sq ft.

Yes indeed the builder you choose is a huge factor when it comes to cost overruns too.

For clarity are we quoting cost to build or cost paid to purchase a property?
