Eco-friendly Community Designed By World Class Architects

A consulting architect on the project was Bernard Judge. Bernard’s innovation and design are legendary. In 1972, Bernard pioneered sustainable design by developing plans for Marlon Brando’s Tahitian resort. The Makara project has its own private well with the capacity to serve pure water to over 900 people and it has received warm approval from SETENA, the Costa Rican environmental protection agency, because of its planning and design.

Makara is located in the southern pacific zone of Costa Rica just north of the Osa Peninsula and conveniently situated off the paved Costanera highway between the towns of Uvita and Ojochal. Uvita is a small town, a few minutes north of Makara. It is the heart of Ballena Marine National Park and has two medium sized grocery stores, restaurants, banks, doctors, dentists, Internet cafe’s and a thriving local and expat culture.
Ballena Marine National Park is famous for the Humpback Whales that migrate here twice each year, one of which coincides with the local whale festival. The enormous pristine beaches here are rarely crowded and are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and sun-bathing. At low tide, a land bridge appears to Punta Uvita, and visitors can walk 600 meters into the ocean and be at the centre of a rock formation which resembles a whale tail. Ojochal, a few kilometres south has the best restaurants along this part of the coast! The developers of Makara have also negotiated private access to a spectacular beach located directly in front of the community. If you are looking for an incredible location for your tropical vacation getaway, this is a great choice!
