Current price $275,000USD for both the 50 acre farm and the smaller property with a house, pool, and cabina that is located a few minute walk away. The information on the smaller property can be found by clicking here.
Due to health issues we had to leave Costa Rica. For this reason we have reduced the price, and are also offering amazing owner financing terms. For owner financing we only need a 15% down payment with the rest to be paid either in monthly or yearly payments with only 5% APR. Will are flexible on how many years the payments will be for. You will not find better owner financing terms anywhere in Costa Rica.
The property is a 50 acre organic off grid farm with a fully furnished rustic 832 square foot house constructed in 2015.
Accommodation is in high demand here, as many tourists come to visit Corcovado National Park. The entrance to the park is just steps away and the trail borders the farm. This makes the farm a perfect location for someone interested in creating a boutique ecolodge or hosting farm tours.
The property is located in a small town of less than 400 people in the Osa Peninsula. The town is only eight miles away from the beach and a larger town with all the amenities you could wish for.

First, some videos and photos taken on the property of our many animal visitors. They were all taken with an iphone(limited zoom), to give you an idea how close we were. Since we have hundreds of banana plants and many papaya trees, we always have mature bananas and papayas that we leave in the field to feed wildlife. The banana field is directly beside the house, and the papaya trees are scattered around it; this attracts a lot of wildlife close to the house.

There is a troop of Central American Squirrel Monkeys that live on the property. This species of Squirrel Monkey(Saimiri oerstedii oerstedii) used to be listed as endangered, but is now listed as vulnerable. The only place in the world to see these monkeys are select locations in Costa Rica and Panama.
Chestnut-Mandibled Toucans visit daily, and at every sunset we hear them calling to each other. Often they are accompanied by Fiery-Billed Aracaris.
We have also seen Howler Monkeys and Spider Monkeys on the property, and
frequently hear Howler Monkeys.
Other frequent visitors are: Scarlett Macaws, Coatis, Gray-Necked Wood Rails, Slaty-Tailed Trogons, Hummingbirds, Peccaries, Bats, Iguanas, a variety of various reptiles and amphibians and many species of birds too numerous to count. A park guide once found a tapir print on the property as well. We have been told they are attracted to the smell of bananas, and feel that if we didn’t have dogs we would likely have tapirs visit.
The property is hilly and the majority of it(around 44 acres) is primary rainforest. The rest(6 acres or so)was cleared in the past and now has a variety of fruit trees planted on it, with space for more.
The property came with a few mature fruit trees, and we have planted hundreds of different fruit trees since we purchased the property in 2014. Many of these trees are now producing. We use zero chemical fertilizers or pesticides, so everything is organic.
These are the current mature(producing) fruit trees: four cashew, five cacao(chocolate), many papaya, two coconut, three mango, numerous guavas and ice cream beans, one achiote(lipstick tree), one miracle fruit, several moringa, three rambutan, two soursop, two atemoya, several lemon, and one chili pepper tree.
In 2018 we started over 50 cacao, 30 coconut 25 ice cream bean, 20 atemoya, 20 soursop and 7 jackfruit trees.
Cacao takes between 3-4 years to produce, so in a few years there will be enough cacao to start a chocolate related business. The ice cream beans will be intercropped with the cacao, providing shade and also being excellent nitrogen fixers. They start producing in 1-2 years and have tasty fruit that some say resembles the taste of vanilla ice cream, hence the name.
Other trees that we planted in 2014, but have not produced yet: one fig, one almond, one finger(caviar) lime, two jaboticaba(should be ready anytime), five breadfruit(should also be ready anytime), many types of citrus, passionfruit, star fruit, many coconuts, green bamboo for building, many types of cacao, cashew, avocado, morninga, and mango.
There are also many edible plants on the property. There are hundreds of mature banana plants(many different types), so there is a constant supply of bananas. Other plants that are currently producing are: white pineapple(around 30 plants), many yucca/cassava/tapioca, tons of taro, pigeon peas, and many greens(katuk, bele, chaya, moringa, gotu kola, purslane, cranberry hibiscus). There is one vanilla plant that is old enough to produce, but we have not seen flowers yet.
