The property is 79,300m2 ( almost 8 hectares or almost 20 acres) and fully enclosed by a 10 ft perimeter wall.
The property is perfectly located on the main highway between Jaco and Orotina near all large tourist destinations in Costa Rica’s Central Pacific area and only 7 minutes away from where the new Cascajal International Airport is going to be located. The compound consists of 10 individual houses and a large main building which could be converted into a multilevel structure with ocean views. These facilities are situated on 20 fully enclosed acres of fruit groves consisting of mango, star fruit, guava, guanabana, papaya, cashew, avocado, banana, plantain, lemon, orange, and grapefruit trees.
There are a variety of possible uses for the compound. It could be used as a large family estate, a resort, a self-contained retirement community (additional homes could be built and sold individually), a wild life retreat, or a time share property. Also, since Costa Rica has become well known for its plastic surgery and has an abundance of foreigners that visit for a variety of procedures, it would also be a perfect site for a new hospital/rehabilitation facility.
As you already know, Costa Rica and its population, foreign and domestic, are growing by leaps and bounds especially in the Central Pacific region. Five of the top tourist destinations and foreign populated cities Jaco, Atenas, Manuel Antonio, Quepos, and Puntarenas have all witnessed large increases in population and wealth. This prosperity is only going to increase in the future because of a new international airport that will be built in the Central Pacific community of Coyolar, Orotina: http://www.costaricantrails.com/costa_rica_news/Mar2012/news-article-1630
