Cliffs of the Central Pacific
Immerse yourself in the natural splendor of this 234ha (578 acre) ranch and forest reserve.
This property is a blend of rolling, open hills and tropical forests—providing a haven for nature enthusiasts and potential for an eco-conscious development. Full of beautiful gulf, sunset and mountain views, elevations range from 500-850 meters (1600-2800 feet).
Watered by numerous springs and a year-round creek (as well as access to public water and power) the property features plenty of lodge, hotel and residential build spots. Parts of the existing forest lie within the Bellbird Biological Corridor, helping to connect two important river valleys. The non-forested areas are currently used for cattle breeding, part of a larger ranch supporting 250-300 head of Brahman cattle, and has two recently-upgraded corrals, as well as a small cottage for the on-site ranch manager’s family. There also is a central heliport.
With a perfect balance between development and conservation, the climate here is normally clear and comfortable, unlike the chilly, foggy conditions in nearby Monteverde or the heat at lower elevations. Monteverde’s cloud forest reserves, adventure parks, research institutes, schools, restaurants and boutique hotels have made it one of the most important eco-tourist destinations in the world. With its location right on the main road, there is easy access to all these amenities and the continued growth in the region. It can become a sustainable development project that celebrates the beauty of its natural surroundings or maintained as a working ranch and reserve.
