Costa Rica Jaguar Corridor Conservation Properties

Expansive Ranch with Breathtaking Views
197 Acres / 80 Hectares
50% Native Forest, 50% Ranchland
$749,000

This enormous ranch flanks one whole side of the Reventazon Valley, and with no neighbors in sight it gives the impression of having your own private valley.

The top end of the property is dominated by high cliffs clad with vibrant old growth forest that tower above the valley below. Multiple levels of flat ranchland tier down from the 800 meter peaks in layered steps almost all the way to the Reventazon River.

The landscape encompasses a wide range of topographical features, all with stunning views of the Reventazon and the towering Turrialba Volcano to the West. Pristine streams dissect the landscape, creating a patchwork of individual pastures surrounded on all sides by lush forest humming with wildlife.

Fabulously colorful birds including toucans, oropendolas and the highly endangered green macaw pass with regularity over the fields as they move from one patch of forest to another. Each clearing is absolutely private, with its own character and unique view of the Turrialba Volcano.

Conservation

This property is a key component of the threatened Barbilla-Destierro Biological Corridor, which is one of Central America's most important jaguar migration routes. Its huge patches of rainforest (parts of which are primary) are home to a huge variety of birds, mammals and amphibians. It's role as a wildlife haven was accentuated by the flooding of the Reventazon Reservoir in 2016, as animals move up the valley to seek refuge.

As an important link in the Central American wildlife corridor this property would greatly benefit from the reforestation of large areas of its open ranchland, providing valuable habitat for the numerous endangered mammals that pass through the valley.

Access and Location

The property is accessed by an unpaved public road in fair condition. It is five minutes drive off the main Turrialba to Siquirres highway. The market town of Siquirres with all the necessary amenities is just 15 minutes drive north along that highway, while the bustling tourist hub of Turrialba is 45 minutes to the south. The local store is 5 minutes away, and it is 10 minutes drive to the nearest bars and restaurants.

The Reventazon Valley is two hours drive from the capital San Jose, and just one hour from the nearest regional airport at Guapiles. The valley is surrounded by pristine National Parks and Forest Reserves. Within easy reach of the Reventazon are the Barbilla National Park, the Turrialba Volcano National Park, the Tapanti National Park, the Rio Macho Forest Reserve, the Guayabo National Park and the world famous Pacuare Forest Reserve.

The nearby town of Siquirres is the gateway to the Caribbean Coast and its many natural wonders including Braullio-Carillo, Manzanillo, Cahuita and the world-renown biodiversity hotspot Tortuguero National Park.

Driveway


A massive cliff prominence covered with lush pristine forest towers above the top of the property, which slopes almost all the way down to Reventazon River.
