This stunning 6-acre property is located in La Mona of Golfito, in the Southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. It is just a 5-minute drive away from downtown Golfito and is easily accessible through the domestic airport for travelers coming from further away. The serene shores are now dotted with several tiny marinas, and a new Marina Village is being developed, which is expected to boost the area's tourism development and consequently, the property values. Golfito is one of the fastest-growing areas in the southern region, with its sea and nature being the main attractions. The location is ideal due to its wave-free beaches, perfect for commercial and fishing boats. It is definitely an area worth investing in and a beautiful place to live. Moreover, the world-class waves for surfing in Pavones and Matapalo are within a 30-minute boat ride.
The property is a great investment opportunity, as it is located just off the main intercoastal highway and has three different entrances. It touches a public road and has municipal water, electricity, and fiber-optic connections. The land is flat and is bordered by a creek on one side, with several mature fruit trees, such as bananas, lemon, plantain, and avocado. The area is home to a variety of wildlife, including cherengas, parrots, and coatis. The property is waiting to be developed in any way you can dream of, and it can be segregated into several pieces. You can build your private vacation home, your new permanent house, or a multi-income vacation rental investment property with at least 10 different structures that can be accommodated easily.
Golfito is a tranquil port town that lies along the coast of the small gulf inside the larger Golfo Dulce (hence its name "Little Gulf"), providing a calm and safe anchorage deep enough for the largest of vessels, surrounded by the verdant slopes of a National Wildlife Refuge.
Exciting developments are now taking place in Golfito that will only drive real estate values up! Several tiny marinas now line the calm shores, and a new Marina Village is being built, with the hope of boosting the area's tourism development and consequently, the property values.
An interesting fact is that the United Fruit Company built and established Golfito as a banana port in the late 1930s, as they noticed the ideal natural conditions. The company operated a large shipping export business until the 1980s. During those years, ships from the Great White Fleet could be seen anchored offshore, waiting their turn to load hundreds of tons of bananas onto their ships to export to the USA and other countries.
After the banana company left decades ago, the little town had to find its way. It has now started to transform like other parts of Costa Rica. Commercial fishing and a duty-free shopping center were the main means of survival, but the little town's privileged geography and raw natural beauty are lately making it a very attractive destination for yacht owners, sport fishermen, and nature lovers from all over the world.
This is a unique property that is ready to become your dream property in one of the country's most wildlife-rich areas while also being a high eco-development zone
