Riverfront Farm Above Uvita with Swimming Holes, Waterfalls, and Ocean Views
The farm is comprised of 58.8 Hectares (145 acres) of land located 1.5 miles (~2.5km) from the small community of San Josecito. The property is just 15 minutes from Uvita, 80% on asphalt road. There is easy 2WD access all the way to the property. You may continue on the same road in 4WD for a scenic drive to San Isidro (40 minutes) or Diamante Valley (30 minutes). The farm is only 30-35 minutes from Dominical or Ojochal on the Coastal Highway.
This is a highly sought-after location as you will have a complete sense of privacy in a lush rainforest setting, yet the property is conveniently close to the area’s most desirable destinations and conveniences.
Many Water Features Including River Frontage, Year-Round Creek, and Clean Mountain Spring
River with Waterfalls and Swimming Holes: There are roughly .6 miles of river frontage with multiple easy-access swimming holes. One swimming hole has a waterfall of about 20 feet. The property encompasses both sides of the river, providing virtually private river access and swimming holes.
Creeks: A strong year-round pristine internal creek runs through the property with a waterfall and multiple cascades. There is massive hydroelectric potential with the professional analysis already complete. A waterfall is visible from multiple building sites during Costa Rica’s “Green Season”.
Clean Mountain Spring: A high-quality year-round spring provides an excellent off-the-grid clean water source.
Waterfall Views of San Luis and Santa Lucia Falls
There are views of large waterfalls (San Luis and Santa Lucia) from multiple building sites. These waterfalls are highlights in Costa Rica’s Southern Zone and are popular destinations for locals and tourists familiar with the area. The San Luis Waterfall forms the river that flows through the property. There is also a bonus view of a smaller seasonal waterfall that comes to life during Costa Rica’s “Green Season”.
There are 2 “ready-to-go” building pads, one with a small ocean view, and the other with a double waterfall view. Many additional suitable building sites for homes or other structures exist throughout the property with mixes of waterfall, ocean, and jungle views.
Existing Infrastructure in Place to Live a Healthy and Self-Sustainable Type of Lifestyle in Costa Rica
The old farmhouse serves as a functional work area with a toilet, shower, sink, and storage for tack. There is a new extra security bodega (storage room) large enough for a large quad and power tools. Water is routed from creeks for irrigation and farmhouse plumbing. Trails run from the farmhouse to internal water features on the property. Near the farmhouse is the Corral/stable for horses and cows as well as large paddocks with ample food and water for livestock and horses. Existing livestock on the property includes 4 cows, 2 horses, and many chickens.
New infrastructure has been added to the property including a new electric meter plus high-speed fiber optic internet installed in the farmhouse. There is a new gate at the property entrance with an electrical system (keypad and remote control entry). The property boasts about 1.2km (.75 miles) of internal roads with surplus gravel for future maintenance.
1.5 Acres Planted with Exotic Fruit Trees plus a Greenhouse For Medicinal Plants
The property has approximately 1.5 acres of Syntropic Agroforestry plantation containing every type of tropical fruit tree and spice tree as well as Ginger and turmeric. There are multiple staples such as yucca, ñampi, plátanos, corn, beans, etc. The plantation was first planted in May 2021. (Most trees will need 1-4 more years to produce.) Irrigation is installed for the dry season.
There is a 32×18’ greenhouse with food and medicinal plants and a 16×10’ manure drying structure (or future greenhouse). Multiple species of construction-grade bamboo were planted in 2021 (also with irrigation, which will take 5-7 years before the first harvest, then perpetual production).
Simply put, this property has EVERYTHING you would need to create a true self-sustainable paradise in Costa Rica. Potential for a stable “off-the-grid” clean energy supply with hydro-power, areas for solar, multiple clean water supply sources, fertile land for agriculture, and all of this is only minutes from the beaches of Uvita. Act fast because properties just like this are in extremely high demand.
