Unique Riverfront Property With Home And Rental Cabins In Uvita
You will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful riverfront property in Southern Costa Rica.

A protected nature reserve located on the opposite bank consists of ancient primary rainforest that is utilized by an amazing array of Costa Rican wildlife as a natural habitat corridor. The variety and frequency of wildlife sightings here is truly remarkable for a property this close to civilization. Conveniently located only 1 kilometer from the Costanera Highway, in minutes you and your guests will be able to go shopping / dining in downtown Uvita, visit the pristine beaches at Marino Ballena National Park or enjoy a wide variety of other popular tourist attractions in the area.
The Southern Pacific zone, known as Costa Ballena (Whale Coast), is just starting to be “discovered” due to the completion of the Costanera Highway. Travel and Leisure, Outdoor, and International Living magazines have recently published articles listing the Costa Ballena area as a “must see” destination. If you are seeking a premier location for a boutique hospitality business in Costa Rica, this property offers a unique riverfront ambience that truly separates it from any other lodging option available from Manuel Antonio to the Osa Peninsula.

Beautiful Grounds In A One Of A Kind Setting Overlooking The River

Completed in 2016, the 264 sq. ft. pool is finished with stone tile imported from Bali and an attached semi-circle jacuzzi.

Stones from the river were incorporated into the pool area, beautifully blending the construction with the surrounding environment.
Located directly in front of the pool is a natural swimming hole and a little further up the river, a hidden waterfall with more swimming holes can be discovered.
