60 minutes southeast of Jaco and 30 minutes northeast of Quepos, by way of palm tree lined roads and the small town of San Antonio de Damas, you arrive to this special property quietly tucked away along the Rio Damitas and fronting the La Fila Chonta mountain range.
The easy access to this 178 Hectare property is ideal for tourism. 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. Electrical service is in place to this location, as well as municipal water.
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 an area of the farm with multiple sites for building or farming. The sprawling ocean views from the majority of these sites extend all the way to Manuel Antonio National Park.
To the east of the main entrance area 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.
Further into this area the vibrant rainforest grows in density, providing an optimal location for an environmental research center and wildlife refuge. The 20 waterfalls found on the property are each amazing in their own right, making this truly a waterfall wonderland accessible from all areas!
The usability of this property is proven in the projected master plan, the biodiversity and the location show the potential for this blank canvas to become a destination which is not yet offered in this steady growing mecca of ecotourism.
The property is zoned for agricultural, preservation and estate usage, with commercial potential. The farm is not zoned for any type of urbanization or small lot segregation.
