Location: Dominical, Costa Rica
On the front row of hills facing the Pacific, you have 180 degrees of whitewater ocean views with year-round sunsets over the sea. And, all this is accessed with 2wd only 5 minutes from the Costanera. To the east, you face the Talamanca Mountain range, with serene sunrise, deep green forests, and a vast expanse of mountains, rivers, valleys, and sky. To the south, you face the Osa Peninsula, the Rio Sierpe, the Rio Terraba, and one of the largest mangroves in the Americas. This combination forms an area that is world-known for its biodiversity. Locally, it is known for having the best nature tours in Costa Rica.
The property is vast and varied and has many, many possible uses. The top of the property is several acres of flat view property (360 degrees) which then follows down a ridge to various other plantels. There is a lower ridge that could be separated or integrated into a cohesive community. From the bottom, there are various access points to waterfalls, building sites, and farmland. The property is perfect for an estate, a community, a development, or a farm. The current owner has invested heavily in the infrastructure, digging a well, creating a D1 permit for development, and preparing this particular area for residential or commercial use.
Located just south of Ojochal, five minutes away from the hospital at Cortez, and fifteen minutes away from the airport at Palmar Sur, the property has quick access to shopping, medical, banks, hardware, and more. However, because it is south of Ojochal, it also has quicker access to the Osa Peninsula and all the rich nature tours in Drake Bay, Caños Island, Golfito, and of course, the surfing in Pavones and Cabo Matapalo.
The farm has D-1 permits to develop up to 100+ subdivided residential and mixed commercial units. The secluded hillside location allows for the development of homes, condos, or rooms for guests to remove themselves from the normally congested areas that many travelers to Costa Rica experience. A D-1 permit typically takes 2 years to process and costs many thousands of dollars.
