This is Costa Rica. 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. 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!
This is a lot for sale in the Finca Pura Jungla. This isn’t just any lot. This lot is one of the premier beach real estate in Costa Rica that were originally offered to the public. It is situated at the top of one of those ridges we were talking about. It is at the end of the road within the finca. The location of this lot is key. Since it is the last lot on the ridge it enjoys a special splendor. Here we are at the top of the mountain and also where the mountain begins to descend into a valley which serves as the corridor for wildlife. When you are at the top of the mountain you can also see the sea! There is so much ocean view to enjoy on this incredible lot that it is hard to fathom. Pictures won’t do it justice.
Naturally, there is electricity, telephone, internet (the finca is a sub-station for internet…T1 service), and clean, delicious running water. The lot is one kilometer inside the finca and one more kilometer to THE paved road in Paraiso. The lot is also only about ten minutes to the beaches of Junquillal, Playa Blanca, Callejones, Playa Negra, Lagartillo, and Avellanas. The owner says it best – “Why be close to one beach when you can be close to them all?”. This is a resale lot. The owner of this lot bought two lots in the finca. He built a home on the other lot and when he comes to vacation or permanently retire he will be your neighbor. This lot is officially just over two acres.
