Oceanfront Property For A Premier Golf Resort In Tambor With Full Title And Permits
The ultimate development property in Costa Rica. Extremely rare to find, this magnificent 1,670 waterfront property in Costa Rica includes over 2 miles of private oceanfront land. The land is fully titled with no liens or loans and it is fully permitted for a large golf resort development. The seller is motivated to make a deal and has priced this land parcel to transcend any other buying opportunity in the waterfront market. This is one of the largest titled oceanfront properties left in all Costa Rica and is definitely a jewel that sets itself out apart from all others.
The project’s original master plan included an 18 hole Jack Nicklaus designed golf course. The 13th and 14th “cliff’s edge” holes were to feature stunning whitewater ocean views reminiscent of California’s Big Sur coastline. While visiting this particular location on the property, we witnessed sea turtles and dolphins swimming in the royal blue water below. The project also includes “up to date” permits with options for a 68 unit oceanfront hotel, residential sectors with 1,500 units, low impact treehouse cabinas, an equestrian center, a wildlife center, a zip line canopy tour and rivermouth boat access for fishing charters, water taxis and boat tours to a wide variety of tourist attractions in the Nicoya Peninsula.
Three concessioned wells provide an ample, clean water supply for the entire development. If you were somehow able to find an oceanfront property of this size in Costa Rica, it is an absolute rarity of ever achieving building permits for a project of this scale again. For those experienced with dealing with the bureaucracy and pace of the Costa Rican government, this statement rings true. Topographical surveys, masterplans and any other documentation for research and due diligence will be provided to qualified buyers upon request.
This prime oceanfront property is one of the best-kept secrets on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Santa Lucia is a very valuable piece of land and if you are familiar with what TITLED BEACHFRONT vs. CONCESSION BEACHFRONT means, then you understand this extraordinary opportunity to privately own over 2 miles of property right on the water’s edge. This parcel also includes valuable land bordering a tropical river with mature rainforest teeming with wildlife.
This property includes massive open areas ideal for development where the original concept can be continued in phases or it can be subdivided into several smaller pieces. This is a one of a kind investment in paradise:
- Over 3.5 kilometers of private TITLED BEACHFRONT land
- Valuable up to date building permits for a large scale development
- Private bays and coves
- Blue Flag destination
- Borders the Rio Pochote river and mangrove with private boat access
- Valley rimmed on both sides by lush forest
- Breathtaking ocean, river, rainforest, and mountain views
- Abundant array of Costa Rican wildlife
- Fertile land ideal for agricultural uses
- Three concessioned wells
About Playa Tambor, Playa Pochote and Bahia Ballena
Successful resort developments already in the area include the Barcelo at Tambor Beach and the Los Delfines Golf and Country Club. This land parcel is ideally situated to offer a more exclusive and upscale option to visitors coming to the area. The beach located along the rivermouth, Pochote Beach, has been designated as a Blue Flag beach. The Blue Flag certification is awarded only to the cleanest of beaches in Costa Rica.
Tambor is a peaceful, laid back area that is popular with families and couples looking to vacation in a luxurious resort setting while experiencing Costa Rica’s raw, natural beauty. It is set in the valley of a large horseshoe shaped bay called the Bahia Ballena which in English means “Whale Bay”. The beaches gently slope into the bay and are lined with almond and palm trees. Due to the minimal wave activity, the shallow waters are exceedingly calm and offer good swimming for even the most timid of bathers. This also provides an excellent location for a variety of water sports including wind surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, boating, and fishing.
A successful breeding program for scarlet macaws successfully re-introduced the species to Tambor and it is common to see entire flocks of these gregarious, large parrots foraging through the almond trees on the beach. The area also includes an abundant array of Costa Rican wildlife including White Faced Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, Coatimundi, and much more. The sea life in the area is spectacular and is a favorite destination for divers and fishermen.
Access to the beautiful Tambor area is easy. It has the only airstrip in the Southern Nicoya Peninsula with several flights arriving daily from the International Airport and the country’s regional airports. Many visitors exploring Costa Rica by car, arrive via ferry boat from Puntarenas. The trip across the Gulf Of Nicoya is beautiful and an experience upon itself. After unloading from the ferry to Tambor, the drive to the property is approximately 1/2 hour. If a resort were to be developed, we envision a water taxi to the property’s rivermouth location could be arranged to and from Puntarenas or Jaco.
If you are a developer or a real estate investor looking for a prime asset, this oceanfront property will be a fantastic addition to your portfolio.
