Location

The town of Estero Guerra is located 20 minutes from Drake Bay (in one direction) and 20 minutes from Rancho Quemado (the other direction). Getting there by car requires you to take the Pan American Highway or the Coastal road (as if you were driving to Puerto Jimenez, but then you turn onto a dirt road that will take you to Drake Bay).

The total drive from San Jose can be about 7 hours. Flying directly into Drake bay from San Jose is another option.

Los Pumas

Los Pumas has been under the original owner since 1971. The family pioneered this region when no roads led here and when most of Osa Peninsula was still very much left undiscovered. According to the owner, our current studies, and multiple camera traps and sighting, Los Pumas is currently as wild as when it was first discovered.

Biological Area

Due to its strategic location and its proximity to Corcovado National Park, this property is one of the keys to conserving the priceless forests of the Osa peninsula.

National Geographic has described the Osa as “one of the most biologically intense places on Earth.” It hosts more than 50% of Costa Rica’s plant and animal species, living on only 3% of its land area. 2.5% of Earth’s lifeforms are found here, on less than a thousandth of a percent of our planet’s surface area. 

Los Pumas property is 178 hectares of primary tropical forest and mountains and about 5 hectares of 20-year secondary forest between the flatland and where the mountain begins. 30 hectares of flatland were cleared – which makes an ideal situation for reforesting. Los Pumas is currently registered under FONAFIFO, which means it receives payments for conservation purposes.

 

Preservation with a Purpose

This property is home to 5 summer rivers and 2 waterfalls. The land that makes up the part of the mountain goes into the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve. Los Pumas is strategic for conservation, given its remote location. This property is within what many researchers deem as the “jaguar zone,” which means it houses and can sustain a healthy population of big cats. 4 jaguars were detected in 2020 through 2021, alongside many mountain lions, tapirs, and ocelots. Los Pumas is within 10-minute walking distance to Terraba-Sierpe National Wetlands.

Los Pumas is approximately a 20-minute drive to Drake Bay. There is dirt road access to the property.

There is a small house on the property that has running water and electricity.
