ABOUT : 100 Acre Baru Development Property

Incredible piece of land surrounded by rainforest preserves, the tranquil Baru River, and the Pacific Ocean. Meaning “Fire Mountain” in the indigenous Borucan native language, this property is perhaps the best we have come across in this special region. Baru has all of the right variables to build the project of your dreams. There are football field size plateaus overlooking the protected virgin rainforest preserves to the ocean. This protected rainforest means no obstruction of the ocean view for perpetuity. The adjacent preserve has a variety of eco-tourism outdoor activates including ziplining, guided nature tours, butterfly gardens, and much more. This is a great advantage to any development design on the property.

Baru Development property has a concession well on site. The well has been accepted at 8.0 liters per second which will support 2,880 people or 480 three-bedroom dwellings. The well taps an underground river running through the property 185m below the surface. The river runs through the middle and you can feel its energy on the surface. The Borucans (indigenous people) used this as a spiritual spot because of the energy and views of the river valley sunrise and the ocean sunsets. There are 2 springs on-site located at the top of the farm, unusual in allowing water to gravity feed. The property has taken several years to achieve the water concession and acquire the water permits that need to be in place first before moving forward with any development. There are CFIA construction and environmental permits for a full condominium land use which can now be molded to your desires.

This property is build-ready! This removes over 5 years of permitting time before your vision can see fruition and allows you to create your project immediately whether it is residential, commercial, touristic, or a combination. This property is ready for you to implement your concept from a wellness center, condo buildings, residential lots, hotels, estate homes, or your own town!

The Baru Development Property is surrounded by over 1,000 acres of preserve creating a unique sensation of privacy that lawfully cannot change as the surrounding area is developed. The farm has direct access to the main roads accessing two airports within 30 minutes and is less than a mile from the quaint beach town of Dominical.

Just minutes away from farmer’s markets in Platanillo and a short distance to the public and private hospitals in San Isidro (2nd largest city in Costa Rica), this property is at the most ideal location. Because of the topography, road noise is muted from the ocean view side despite its direct highway access. The 2,400ft (1/2 mile) ridge of prime building sites is naturally terraced with 2 and 3 levels of construction pads creating almost 1.5 miles of ocean view frontage!

The primary ridge boasts views of both the year-round sunrises over the river valley and sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. The river valley view side of the property also has similar building potential with incredible views to the shimmering turquoise Baru River. The ridge has constant breeze from the river valley and ocean drawing across the main building areas. The property has been maintained as a working farm, so you can easily develop over 80% of the property with many additional areas to plant gardens and orchards. A section of the riverside is still rainforest with beautiful hiking trails that we have been maintaining. This is ideal for mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking.

This build-ready property is one of a kind and is ready for you to make your mark in Costa Rica!!
