This 176 Hectare (434 Acres) land parcel is a dynamic waterfall jungle wonderland which would be optimized though a combination of eco development and conservation.
The combination of secondary and primary rain forest is accompanied with a pure biodiversity that is often sought after in Costa Rica. For this reason the owners envisioned a combination of preservation, hospitality, adventure tourism and sustainable development when they began designing the master plan.
To the left of the central area one passes through the mature cacao forest, with a tranquil areas to sit and enjoy the first of many waterfalls and swimming holes on the property. After crossing the cascading Damitas river, the internal infrastructure becomes evident, from integrated water management and drainage to internal roads which are well maintained and provide access to potential building areas. This is also the ideal location for a luxury tent and tree house lodge with full service spa and restaurant.
The property has ocean views from the majority of the sites extend all the way to Manuel Antonio National Park. This area of the property has a private maintained trail with walking bridges, leading to larger waterfalls up the river, each with their own unique features for enjoyment.
To the east of the main entrance area one is lead through to another area of the property that would be ideal for private home and guest house. This beautiful area of the property has a magical wet forest atmosphere, with mature trees, bubbling streams and rolling land with both ocean and jungle views. By way of winding trails through the pristine forest one gains access to the waterfalls along the river. This division of the property would also be ideal for a full service family friendly and/or backpacker lodge.
The 20 waterfalls found on the property are each amazing in their own right, making this truly a waterfall wonderland! The jewel of the property is the 175+ acres which could be put into preserve and would serve as the focal point for the environmental education and research center and wildlife refuge. The center would provide a lodge for national and international researchers to study the biology, geology and ecology of Costa Rica, as well as house volunteers involved in the operations of the refuge and reintroduction center.
A residential estate or small eco-tourism lodge with private reserve would be the ideal usability for this land for owners of a shared vision and protection of a unique eco-system.
