A large jungle-clad piece of land with mountain views, internal creek, and river

Ojochal, Puntarenas

  • Land
  • US$ 195,000 For Sale


This large 1.3 acre lot – an oasis of greenery, peace and tranquillity – sits right inside the most sought-after real estate location of Costa Ballena: the amazing jungle town of OJOCHAL. On one end the land borders a mountain river flanked by towering rainforest trees. This year-round river is clean, cool and offers many swimming holes which could make for perfect hot afternoon dips – and a few dozen strategically placed rocks would create a deep and cool swim hole big and deep enough for a large group to relax in! Inside the property a smaller year-round creek flanks the large centrally located plantel – a perfect spot for a house, as it would take full advantage of the rainforest surroundings and allow for the sound of the nearby river to accompany the jungle bird and animal ambience.

On the other end, the property borders Calle Jardin near the point where the road ends – ensuring that this neighbourhood is quiet and serene, as only a small handful of properties are located along this quiet no-exit part of the street.

The majestic coastal mountains, rising to over 1,300 meters, or 4,300 feet, above Ojochal are visible from the property and feel just an arm’s reach away. The mountains are completely covered by old growth jungles and often shrouded in mists, the upper slopes holding cloud forests that make for surreal vistas. A few seasonal waterfalls are also visible, spectacularly descending for hundreds of meters along the imposing and nearly vertical flanks.

Now a bit about the town of Ojochal – it is THE place to be – a hot real estate market driven by the town’s tropical surroundings, services and amenities, and proximity to some of the most scenic beaches, waterfalls and landscapes of Costa Rica. The town is known as an international village due to her popularity as a destination for locals, expats and tourists alike. World-class dining options surround the local area as do yoga studios and fitness centres, hotels and guesthouses, shops and supermarkets, medical clinics, legal offices, hardware stores and many other businesses. But Ojochal is also a true jungle town with numerous mountain rivers, streams and waterfalls criss-crossing the area, and a canopy of towering trees immersing the local homes and businesses giving a true ‘jungle village’ vibe. Resident toucans, flocks of noisy scarlet macaws, howler and capuchin monkeys, sloths, majestic blue morpho butterflies and many other tropical animals complete the Ojochal experience!

The options for development are nearly limitless – the size of the plantel and surrounding land could accommodate a large house with a swimming pool/patio AND a huge green area that can be used as a garden, orchard, or retained as the current jungle. Commercial interest would also thrive in this area – a café, restaurant, or short- or long-term accommodation options are on the table for a savvy and sharp entrepreneur – surrounded by jungles and rivers BUT in the middle of OJOCHAL, the business would be BRISK!

High-speed internet is accessible and electricity and legal water are available at the property – so the shovels can hit the ground without delay! A jungle-covered river-facing property with a flat plantel, in a red-hot town like Ojochal, is a rare gem indeed – you cannot afford to sit on this decision.
