Less than an hour’s drive north of SJO airport amongst the coffee farms and rural villages lies a temperate mountainous landscape hosting the La Paz river valley, with its numerous waterfalls in an Eden-like environment. Set amid this lush rain forest is a property that hosts one of the highest concentrations of waterfalls and unspoiled hydrological/biological diversity in Central America.

Extensive investment in infrastructure (road, trails, viewpoints, drainage culverts, entrance gates, etc.) have prepared the land for immediate development with legal and municipal usage agreements in place. ICE (Instituto Centro Electridad) has just completed a power line project along Hwy 126, with a service box at the property entrance to be installed by Feb 2020. Availability of power and the property’s unlimited spring water sources will make permitting and master planning a straightforward process.

The government has recently completed comprehensive infrastructure and road improvements in the area that have benefited the entire region. Now a burgeoning tourism corridor with incredible biological and geological diversity with proximity to many of the country’s most elegant natural features; the area is primed for experiential and sustainable tourism, also sits in an important wildlife corridor.  There are few places like it in the world.
