This Costa Rica land for sale is ideal to develop an Ecological Resort and Organic Farm. Located on the Central Pacific part of Costa Rica in the foothills of the mountains two intersecting ridges form this mountain. 20 minutes to the nearest beach and 15 minutes to town of Parrita this property is ideally located between Jaco Beach and Quepos/Manual Antonio. Parrita has 3 hardware stores, 4 supermarkets, drugstores. The property is pristine and boasts a variety of wildlife with beautiful ocean and mountain views and would be ideal to develop into an income producing Eco-Resort and Organic farm. Currently located 2 hours from San Jose airport but when the new airport is completed it will be one hour to the airport.
At one time there were 200 cattle on this property but as the owner aged the forest reclaimed the land. Organic certification is in process. There are many natural springs and waterfalls with creeks being about 70% of the property boundary. There is electrical at the public street and cell phone and internet reception on most of the property.
There are over 2 miles/3.2 kilometers of internal roads and we are currently finishing the drainage. The Ministry of Agriculture visited and strongly suggested Eco-Tourism, Eco-Resort, and a variety of agriculture that would do well. We have planted Organic Ginger, Turmeric, Yucca, Plantain. We have planted many types of fruit trees that were suggested: Lime, Coconut, Mango, Soursop(Guanabana). There are about 50 mature Cacao(“chocolate”),Guava, Mango, Avocado and Water Apple. A nearby neighbor has an income of $40,000/month with just agriculture without a mountain or Eco-tourism, his property is much more developed but is shows the potential.
Our plan is/was to develop the property as a combination of Organic Agriculture and an Eco-Resort. In the next year our plan is to develop 3 income lines, the Eco-Resort starting with 2 rental cabins, the Organic Farm with the Turmeric and Ginger as crops, and 20 cattle. During season we believe that the cabins will bring in $21,700 and another $8,000 from the cattle for almost $30,000. There is lots of space to expand with more cabins, cattle or crops.
Due to family issues we are having to travel frequently and spend more time away so we are offering the property for sale. We will continue developing the property as we can. In the coming months we will be expanding the farm area and the rental cabins are in the planning stages. In the first kilometer we have identified 15 potential sites where cabins can be built with views of the ocean, mountains, or both.
In this tourist area prices range between $2-$20/M2 or $20,000-$200,000/HA. We are offering the property for $1,150,000, less than half of the lowest price we’ve seen. As we continue working the price will increase, especially when rental cabins are completed.
