RAINFOREST PROPERTY FOR SALE


We are offering our 200 acre (80 hectare) rainforest property for sale after many years of ownership.

THE COUNTRY

Costa Rica is located in Central America between Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south. No larger than West Virginia, it is the only country in the world to have so many species of birds (880) and varied habitats within such a small area. Its landforms are dominated by two long coastlines of the Caribbean and Pacific ocean and a central mountain range running the entire length of the country.

The government has a hundred-year tradition of democracy-the longest of any Latin American Country. Costa Rica abolished it's military in 1949 and has devoted it's tax revenue savings to providing free medical care and education for all its citizens. Costa Rica has always been a safe haven in the storm of political conflict of its neighbors and enjoys the benevolent protection of the U.S. government.

The population is less than four million people, with approximately ten percent comprised of American expatriates, most of whom have chosen to retire there due to Costa Rica's pleasant year round tropical climate, friendly people and low cost of living. The country is becoming so popular, that a recent influx of resident Americans seeking the "next Hawaii" is forcing up real estate values at a rapid pace, especially in the Northeast portion of the country in and around Guanacaste. While the language is Spanish, the visitor or resident will have no trouble communicating with the local business community.

GETTING THERE FROM THE USA

Costa Rica is close to the USA. It is only two hours by plane from Miami and only four hours from Los Angeles, which makes it a much more convenient travel destination than Hawaii and the airfares, hotels and meals are also less expensive


PROPERTY LOCATION

The property is situated at the back end of the Golfo Dulce near the Rio Esquinas on the southwest coast of Costa Rica on the Pacific side near the town of Golfito. It is in the Osa region near the Osa Peninsula-home of Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica's largest. The Osa is the premier wildlife area of all of Central America, representing the last major untouched primary forest reserve and protected by Costa Rican law.

DESCRIPTION

This large parcel of beautiful lush tropical rainforest enjoys a half-mile stretch of coastline with a combination of a long pebble beach and a small Mangrove forest at the eastern end. The entire parcel is forested in secondary and primary growth and is flat to hilly with three year round streams and a waterfall on the property. The property has no existing structures, but there are numerous building sites for homes and the property would make an excellent choice for an ecotourism lodge. The sea bordering the property is crystal clear and home to numerous colorful, tropical fishes, dolphin, and large game fish including Mahi Mahi, sailfish, swordfish, and tarpon. It is a snorkler's and fisherman's paradise.

ACCESS

The property is accessible by paved road at it's northern end near the village of Los Mogos and by sea from Golfito. Golfito has boats available for hire or sale.
