Beachfront Exotic Corcovado Rainforest Property for Sale $650,000
With almost 70 hectares (701,651.91 m2) of virgin primary rainforest and an almost exclusive beachfront, the property lies at about 800 meters (15 minute walk) from the entrance to the Parque Nacional de Corcovado (Corcovado National Park) in the Osa Peninsula, one of the places with the greatest biodiversity in the planet that was very accurately described by National Geographic Magazine as the “most biologically intense place on Earth”. Over 500 species of flora from orchids to grand centuries old trees native to the zone have been identified; as well as 140 types of mammals such as sloths, monkeys, jaguars, wild boar; 367 types of birds such as parrots, tucans, scarlet macaws; 40 types of fresh-water fish, 117 amphibians and reptiles; and an estimated 6,000 species of insects. Besides the trips to the park, visitors to this area may enjoy the proximity of the ocean with scuba and snorkel trips, Humpback whale and dolphin watching, and excellent sports and beach shore fishing.
The property currently belongs to the Observatorio Biológico La Leona, S.A. (previously Corcovado Lodge Tent Camp) and includes freshwater springs, lagoons, brooks, primary virgin rain forest, and low-altitude cloud forest, as well a secluded off-the-grid beach bordering the Pacific Ocean, making it perfect for a unique personal project or Grand Boutique Resort Development. It is only 1½ hour away from the town of Puerto Jimenez which has plenty of development amenities like supermarkets, banks, mechanics, hardware and lumber stores, an airport and even a veterinarian.
Corcovado's climate is generally warm and very humid, with approximately 711 cm. of rain every year. The dry season normally lasts from the beginning of December until April.
