600 Acres With Zoning For A Eco Adventure Resort With A Private Wildlife Sanctuary
This beautiful 600 acre rainforest resort property is located in San Antonio de Parrita, Costa Rica, this small village features a very attractive location within a 15 to 60 minute drive from the five main areas for foreign investment and tourism in the Central Pacific of Costa Rica (Dominical, Uvita, Quepos, Esterillos and Jacó). Several of the best surfing beaches along Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast (Jacó, Hermosa, Dominical, Esterillos, Bejuco, etc.) are located nearby, as well as four national parks, 2 international marinas, 2 cruise ship ports, two secondary ports, and some of the best waters in the world for observing humpback whales and dolphins. World-renown sport fishing is also easily accessible.
The Central Pacific is the most frequented destination for domestic tourists as well as the preferred destination for over 30% of all international visitors that arrive to the country. Tourism is not only the most important industry in the country, but Costa Rica as a market is expected to continue growing consistently for the foreseeable future.
Pristine Primary And Secondary Rainforest With More Than 20 Waterfalls
The property is part of an eco system of the mountain range known as “La Fila Chonta”. This is an area of great biological wealth. With elevations ranging from 122 meters (400 feet) to 1,285 meters (4,215 feet), the land features three micro-climates. The natural characteristics of the site are perfect for eco-adventure and nature observation, as well as for environmental protection, conservation, and research activities.
There are more than 20 waterfalls with natural pools that cascade down to rivers bordering the property. 90% of the developable areas include ocean views while 95% of the total property includes primary and secondary forest inhabited by a rich variety of fauna. Additionally, there are many endangered species whose protection will be ensured with the continuation of the approved concept.
Land With A Topography Perfect For A Zip Line And Rainforest Canopy Tour
The concept for the business has received approval from the Costa Rican government for a master planned Hotel, Spa and Eco-Adventure Resort. The emphasis is on a balance of people, planet, and profits with a focus on the protection of the environment combined with the overall economic development of the region. The primary anchor of the Eco Adventure Park concept includes a “Superman” zip line measuring 1,273 meters (4,175 feet), placing it among the longest in Latin America. In total, nearly 4 miles of zip lines can be constructed that will zigzag through the rainforest down the mountainside. More than 20 other eco-adventure activities have been approved that are designed to take advantage of natural terrain features using technologies that minimize environmental impact.
Note: The zip line and canopy tour photos shown in this listing were photographed from a very profitable tourism business in the Arenal area. We included them here to give you a visual example of what this property is zoned for.
Resort Property In Costa Rica Permitted For A Luxury Hospitality Business
The building site for the hospitality business is located in the middle of a forest, approximately 1.5KM (0.9 miles) north west of the property’s main entrance. The concept includes 17 ocean view rooms with jacuzzis, 33 forest view rooms and 50 “tree houses”. Zoning also includes hotel facilities with a restaurant, lounge, reception area and Treetop Spa. Send us an inquiry and we will provide you additional information about the entire project.
If the concept continues as designed, Discovery Destinations (www.discoverydestinations.com), a licensed affiliate of Discovery Communications (Discovery Channel), has signed a LOI to be it’s premier Costa Rica destination and as such will be promoted to Discovery’s 2.8 billion subscribers worldwide. If you are looking to create a world class eco-tourism business in Costa Rica, much of the “red tape” has been cleared and you couldn’t ask for a better location with incredible natural features.
