FINCA MAILIKA
Beautiful ranch with 2 homes
22 acres / 9 hectares
$199,000

This beautiful ranch has been wonderfully cared for and landscaped for decades by its owners to create the ideal retirement home or your perfect dream property in paradise.

The finca has 2 separate 3-bedroom houses on it. One of them is a comfortable European-style home with an expansive open terrace, and the other is a more rustic Tico-style home which is currently used to house the caretaker. The property also boasts a large stable that can easily accommodate 8 horses, and a swimming pool with a charming circular palapa beside it for relaxing in the shade. The main house is set amongst a selection of fine ornamental plants and surrounded by an impressive mix of fruit trees including orange, lemon, starfruit, guayaba, mango, pithaya, nance, guavas, manzanas de agua, black pepper and ylang ylang. Behind the house is a healthy cacao plantation with 50 mature trees that are 7 years old.

CONSERVATION ACTION

The property's location at a strategic point in the Barbilla-Destierro Biological Corridor makes it valuable to local wildlife and an important piece of land for conservation. Most of the 9 hectares have been deforested, creating an open gap between the 2 neighboring forested properties which is now ripe for reforestation. 

The Jaguar Project can assist you with the financing and implementation of a small but significant reforestation project here to restore this part of the biological corridor to its former glory. We recommend that 5 hectares of this land should be reforested with native trees that are beneficial to local wildlife in order to help restore connectivity through the corridor. This property features numerous sites with spectacular vistas stretching to the horizon. These would make ideal building sites for a small eco-tourism retreat, offering low-impact activities such as bird watching, jungle treks, and horseback riding.

  ACCESS AND AMENITIES

The property has 3 springs which provide bountiful fresh water all year round. It also has 8 man-made ponds that are used to farm Tilapia, and there is a sparkling stream that runs right through it. Electricity is provided to both homes by the local grid.

It is located a short distance from highway 10 that runs between Siquirres and Turrialba. The town of Siquirres with all the necessary amenities is just 15 minutes drive away.The nearest restaurants and local store are less than five minutes away.

LOCATION IN COSTA RICA

Halfway between San Jose and the Caribbean Coast, Siquirres is 2 hours drive from Costa Rica's main international airport, and just an hour away from the nearest regional airport at Guapiles. This part of Costa Rica is exceptionally well suited to environmental and conservation activities. The Reventazon Valley is surrounded by national parks and reserves including Barbilla National Park, Guayabo National Monument, Turrialba Volcano National Park, Tapanti National Park, Rio Macho Forest Reserve and the Pacuare Forest Reserve. The world famous Pacuare River with the best white-water rafting in Central America is just 25 minutes away. Beyond Siquirres and also within easy reach are the boundless natural wonders of the Caribbean Coast, including the legendary biodiversity hotspot Tortuguero National Park.
