PACUARE HEIGHTS
Expansive Ridgetop Ranch Overlooking the Pacuare Wilderness
247 acres / 98 hectares
40% Native Forest, 60% Ranchland
$660,000

This stunning rural property sits on a spacious green ridge overlooking one of the most vast stretches of untouched wilderness in Central America. Sweeping panoramic views look out over a sea of pristine rainforest in a chain inter-connected national parks that stretch uninterrupted all the way to Panama.

The property includes a simple, but spacious wooden cabin with a corral that sits perched on a large clearing overlooking the Pacuare river valley. It's expansive wrap-around deck offers superb views of the rolling hills around the farm and of the Caribbean lowlands that stretch all the way down to the ocean.

Land Use Potential

This property features numerous different hills that have spectacular views all the way to the horizon. These would make ideal sites for a dream home or a small eco-tourism retreat, offering low-impact activities in harmony with the environment such as jungle treks, rafting and horseback riding.

Turrialba Volcano can be seen from much of the property, which is alive with an abundance of beautiful bird species. Toucans, oropendolas and the highly endangered green macaw are all present here, making this an ideal location for a bird-watching haven.

Conservation Potential

The property is located at the northern edge of the Barbilla-Destierro Biological Corridor, which is one of Central America's most important jaguar migration routes. Puma, ocelot and a black panther have all been reported on the property in the last few years. Footprints found suggest the continued presence of multiple feline species.

The recent flooding of the nearby Reventazon Reservoir has accentuated the property's value as a feline migratory route as jaguars and other threatened species seek new ways to navigate around the shores of the reservoir in order to cross the Reventazon Valley.

Due to its size and strategic location, this property would significantly strengthen the biological corridor if it were reforested. There are 123 acres (50 hectares) of ranchland here that are ripe for reforestation.

The Jaguar Project can help facilitate substantial financial support from the Government’s FONAFIFO program in order to help fund reforestation. The same program can also provide funds in return for the protection and preservation of this property’s 50 hectares of existing rainforest.

Access

The property is located 1.5kms off the Siquirres -Turrialba highway, and is accessed by a publicly maintained unpaved road. The road continues past the property all the way down to the banks of the legendary Pacuare River, one of the best white water rafting rivers in the world.

It’s a 30-minute drive to the market town of Siquirres, and 45 minutes to the bustling tourist hub of Turrialba. A small convenience store and an excellent local bar and restaurant are located just 10 minutes drive away.

Location in Costa Rica

The Reventazon Valley is two hours from San Jose, and just one hour from the nearest airport at Guapiles. Within easy reach of the Reventazon Valley are the Barbilla National Park, the Turrialba Volcano National Park, the Tapanti National Park, the Rio Macho Forest Reserve, Guayabo National Park and the 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 famous biodiversity hotspot Tortuguero National Park.
