This is one of the most beautiful large single parcel of Pacific Ocean beach front still left in Costa Rica. The property has been compared to Manuel Antonio Park! It is rectangular shaped, with 900 meters of beachfront, and extends back into the jungle about 2 kilometers on each side. A river runs up the north edge and ends in a lagoon (ideal for fresh water swimming) before flowing out to the Pacific Ocean.
Across the river from the property is a 20,000 acre indigenous Guaymi reserve. The Guaymi are very interested in opening their reserve to eco-tourism and the immensity of the reserve means that the area is rich with monkeys (3 species) and birds.
It is possible to access the property by horseback, but boat or helicopter are the most practical methods of reaching the property. The boat trip from Golfito (where there is an airstrip) is approximately 1-1/2 hours. It would be possible to build an airstrip or permanent helipad on the property.
