This 218 Hectare 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 potentially 22 building quintas which could be segregated and sold individually or remain as a collective in order to build private luxury rental units. 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 the Phase 2 division of the property, where the fern lined roads lead to potentially another 16 sites for segregation which vary from 4 to 9 acres each. 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 owner have a master plan for the adventure park included 20 activities, including a superman line, 15 line canopy tour, bungee systems, canyoning and waterfall repelling, mountain biking route and hiking trails. 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 volunteer s involved in the operations of the refuge and reintroduction center.
Enviromental Impact Studies have been completed on the property, as well as the following studies required by SETENA: Environmental Impact Study; Socio economic impact study; Soil study; Forestry study; Geometrical Master Plan; Construction process approvals; Electricity and Water approvals; Zoning approvals; Waste management plans and approvals; Rainfall management Study.
The master plan for the adventure park is available for consideration, as well as residential phases, however permits for construction and execution have not been obtained.
The usability of these 539 acres along with the projected master plan, the biodiversity and the location provide a clear picture as to why this property already has strategic partners in place such as Discovery Destinations and Luxury Frontiers. Ultimately it provides a beautiful blank canvas for a developer to establish a one of a kind all inclusive destination in Costa Rica.
