Location: San Jose, Costa Rica
Quaint Rustic Ranch Getaway Piedras Negras is the perfect property for anyone looking to retreat into a small oasis in the middle of Costa Rica’s Central Valley. There’s no need to drive hours away from San José, or to rub shoulders with everyone who flocks to the coasts, when the peaceful atmosphere of a tropical paradise can be experienced a mere 40 minutes away from Juan Santamaría International Airport.
The property’s housing infrastructure is built in the typical rustic ranch style, blending seamlessly with the abundant vegetation all around, from planted fruit trees and herbs to lofty shade trees. The main home has two bedrooms, while the property is also equipped with a caretaker’s home, to safekeep this hidden, natural sanctuary, and a comfortable BBQ ranch with its own showers and bathrooms, perfect for family gathering or for inviting some friends over.
The current owner has made a thorough effort for the area’s reforestation, reestablishing the property’s natural allure. Nowadays, its healthy green foliage works in tandem with the small creek that runs throughout it to assure a refreshing atmosphere and a cooler temperature. Quaint Rustic Ranch Getaway Piedras Negras’ revamped vitality hasn’t only benefited its human guests, as the ranch also counts with well-maintained pastures for horses and other farm animals.
In terms of location, Quaint Rustic Ranch Getaway Piedras Negras has a privileged position. It’s possible to walk to the nearby town of Piedras Negras, whose victorian-style church was built in 1909 and is truly a sight to behold. If anyone is in search of an authentic cultural experience, the neighboring town of Jaris hosts some of Costa Rica’s most iconic “Trapichadas” (a celebration of the centenary process behind the country’s traditional hard liquor) and “boyeros” (ox cartwrights) parade, while those looking for more intense thrills will profit from the variety of extreme sport options in the area, from rappelling over the Jaris river, to mountain biking and hiking in Piedras Negras and nearby Puriscal’s natural trails. And even if there was the need to shake-up the simple lifestyle and tranquility of Piedras Negras, the shopping malls and fancy restaurants of Escazú and Costa Rica’s business district are just a 40-minute drive away. If you are looking for a small maintainable retreat from the city look no more.
