he estate (Finca) property consists of 372 Hectares (919 acres) in the Limon Province, approximately 16 kilometers west of the port city of Limon. It is accessed heading east on the main highway leading out of Limon to San Jose, then heading south approximately 10 minutes at the highway intersection at Liverpool. The property is located between North South gridlines 25 & 27, and between East west gridlines 12 – 16 (see map). The estate consists of a wide variety of topographical features, including lush tropical rainforests, riverfront pastures and elevated terraces with beautiful views of the Caribbean Ocean. The property contains two rivers, with the Rio Quito flowing through the northern section of the estate and bounded to the south by the Rio Victoria as if flows east and turns into the Rio Blanco. Waterfall features are also part of this river system and are present as well as on adjacent properties.
Because of the area’s natural amenities, it serves as a popular day trip destination for cruise ship passengers and a successful jungle canopy tour and zip line business is currently in operation adjacent to the property. A 4 bedroom, 2-bath caretaker’s home was constructed in 2006 and the property has road access and electric service. Joint Venture Opportunity DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY Despite the economic downturn of 2008 and 2009, tourism in Costa Rica has since rebounded substantially and industry growth continues to increase. Historically, the majority of the ecotourism industry has been along the Pacific coast and inland volcano regions and the Caribbean basin area of Costa Rica has not experienced the large-scale development of the northwest portion of the country.
Recent upgrades to the port infrastructure in Limon have contributed to increased tourism traffic and it is likely this will continue given the region’s abundance of natural resources. The property is currently owned by a Costa Rican LP whose managing partners are United States citizens and reside in the US. They are long-term investors in Costa Rica and have owned and operated a variety of commercial properties in San Jose, Costa Rica and elsewhere. The principals would consider a JV partnership with an experienced development and operating partner for the purpose of developing a suitable hospitality, commercial or residential project.
