Over 95% of the property is made up of secondary and primary rainforest. And, not to mention that just a little further north of the property is Corcovado National Park. This means the property is home to an abundance of wildlife from exotic insects to large mammals. This region of Costa Rica, the Osa Peninsula, is famously known for being one of the most biodiverse areas in the world. The local and federal government work hard to heavily protect this densely forested land which is why it is rare to find titled beachfront properties with legal structures for sale.
Cabo Matapalo brings hundreds of tourists to the area each year to indulge in the never-ending break this beach has to offer and the dense jungle surroundings. When the surf is good, locals and surfers from around the world can be found in the water. And when the surf isn’t so great, fishing is a great way to pass the time. This property is located at the point at which the mouth of Golfo Dulce meets the vast Pacfic Ocean; this point is known for having epic fishing, whether you are on the land or the sea! These waters are home to sailfish, mahi mahi, yellowfin tuna, amberjack, wahoo, snapper, and catch-and-release marlin.
