This is Costa Rica. Everyone is boasting how their development is eco this and eco that especially when considering that they are selling beach real estate in Costa Rica. This is the hype that plays out the most in this country because Costa Rica is just that a real eco country that is doing its’ best to become carbon free by the year 2020 (just around the corner) and, more importantly, a country where 25% of the land has been set aside to protect an astonishing four percent of the ENTIRE world’s flora and fauna. The reason why this development “Finca Pura Jungla” is, in our opinion, the real deal is that this finca was nothing but pastureland for cow’s twenty some odd years back. The finca was bought and the owner put a real eco plan in action when the moniker eco hadn’t even been invented yet. He planted well over 60,000 trees on the finca and built a forest. He built a rain water catchment basin that now houses many aquatic birds through most of the year. He set aside a majority of the finca as a private reserve and now there is habitat for local wildlife. He only developed home sites on the tops of two separate ridges within the finca and each lot is nearly two acres so that homeowners can really feel like they are alone in the jungle but with a neighbor to get eggs from just a hop, skip, and a jump away. There are only about 30 homesites here on more than 150 acres! Finally, this nature reserve has truly become a sustainable community where all the owners are invited to build modern open air “tree houses” and partake in organic farming on the finca.
