This 165 acre development property is conveniently located at just 5 minutes off the paved road, and only 10 minutes from services and Puerto Jimenez airport. The farm is connected to the main electrical grid, and a fiber optic internet connection is down the road and ready to connect. Logistically, it doesn’t get any better.
The land is all flat with about 75% being arable and usable. Half of the arable land is currently a producing palm farm generating profitable income all year long. The palm fruit is rendered to make palm oil. The remainder of the land is coastal forest and pasture. An interesting geological feature is that this coastal sector, is part of an ancient river delta and just below the surface, is a thick layer of gravel with the potential to be quarried for road building and construction materials.
The property borders the calm waters of the Gulfo Dulce and a user-friendly gravel beach that lends itself to all types of water sports, perfect for launching small boats and watercraft. There is even a high tide inland canal to keep small boats in the interior of the property.
One striking feature is the abundant source of fresh water from ground springs, called “Ojo de Agua'' in Spanish. These are no ordinary ground springs as they produce an extraordinary volume of clean water year round. They form a network of creeks with excellent potential for irrigation or to develop small lakes, ponds and canals.
This working farm in the Osa Peninsula is a superb candidate for a coastal resort or almost any type of development you can think of. If you are looking for a solid investment that doesn’t require a high operating cost from day one with two livable houses, this coastal farm is a top choice.
