Property Description

Discover a rare gem on the Pacific side of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula—a 224-acre property that stands as the epitome of natural beauty. Currently operating as an ecolodge and holistic retreat, this property is a true treasure and the Crown Jewel of the Osa. Nestled along the coast where the mountain rainforest meets the ocean, this end-of-the-road sanctuary offers breathtaking ocean and forest views, along with miles of pristine tropical beaches. The abundant wildlife here will make you feel like you’re living in a National Geographic documentary, with daily sightings of exotic species, including the highest concentration of Scarlet Macaws in the world. There is simply nothing like it in all of Costa Rica—it is truly spectacular!

Zoning: Part of the Saimiri Wildlife Refuge, named after an endemic species of white-faced monkeys, this property is part of an important biological corridor. The refuge was established in 2007, along with six neighboring properties, to ensure conservation and sustainable development, allowing only low-impact touristic projects under the guidelines of the Refuge Management Plan. The area is also within walking distance of Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica’s most famous and diverse protected area.

The Land: The property features undulating topography, rising from sea level to over 400 feet, with several ocean-view sites suitable for future development. An amazing site along a low ridge that parallels the coastline offers a 360-degree view. The interior section is a bowl-shaped valley, ideal for low-impact development, while the back end of the land is perfect for eco-farming and permaculture. The landscape is mostly primary forest, tropical landscaping, and mature fruit forest.

Access: Accessible by land, it’s about an hour’s drive along an all-weather road from Puerto Jimenez, the gateway to Corcovado National Park. Alternatively, you can fly in and out by charter plane from the paved airstrip adjacent to the property—you can even build your private hangar right on the property!

11,400 square feet of construction, including a reception building, a large yoga deck overlooking the forest canopy and ocean, the main building with a restaurant and bar, 7 bungalows, and 7 tent platforms hosting up to 32 visitors, plus separate quarters for 8–12 staff.

5 natural springs with a water concession approved for 1600 gallons of storage.

Off-grid with solar and hydropower.

120 species of tropical fruit trees, 7 types of bamboo, 25 species of palms, 14 varieties of bananas, food crops, herbs, medicinal plants, and many native species of hardwoods.

Biodiversity + Location: The abundance and quality of water sources, dense rainforest, topographical features, and coastal location make this property perfect for a jungle spa resort/private retreat.

Pre-approved environmental viability study for lodging facilities expansion in 2023.
