This working farm for sale in the Osa Peninsula is a superb candidate for a coastal resort or almost any type of development you can think of. The land is all flat with about 75% being arable and usable. Half of the arable land is currently a productive palm farm churning out a profitable income all year long. The palm fruit is rendered to make palm oil. The remainder of the land is coastal forest and pasture.
The property borders the calm waters of the Gulfo Dulce and the user friendly gravel beach lends to all types of water sports, perfect for launching small boats and watercraft. There is even a high tide, inland canal to keep small boats in the interior of the property.
One striking feature is the abundant source of fresh water from ground springs, called “ojo de agua” in Spanish. These are no ordinary ground springs as they produce an extraordinary volume of clean water year round. They form a network of creeks with excellent potential for irrigation or to develop small lakes, ponds and canals.
An interesting geological feature is that this coastal sector is part of an ancient river delta and just below the surface is a thick layer of gravel with the potential to exploit for road building and construction.
The location is another bonus, just 5 minutes off the paved road and only 10 minutes to services and the airport in Puerto Jimenez. The farm is connected to the main electrical grid with fiber optic just down the road. Logistically it doesn’t get any better.
So if you are looking for a smart investment that doesn’t require high operating expense from day one, complete with two livable houses, this coastal farm is a top choice.
