Sotheby's International Realty - Varablanca, A
Above the Central Valley of Costa Rica lies a stunning corridor of rainforest that is home to some of the most significant bio-diversity and topography in the region. Less than an hour’s drive north of SJO airport amongst the coffee farms and rural villages lies a temperate mountainous landscape hosting the La Paz river valley, with its countless waterfalls in an Eden-like setting.
Set in the midst of this lush rain forest is a property that, due to its dramatic disposition, hosts one of the highest concentrations of waterfalls and unspoiled hydrological/biological diversity in Central America.
Pure Waterfall Estate is a 67 acre (26.6HA) development property featuring six waterfalls, numerous cascades, two rivers, and spectacular hydrology (weeping walls, countless smaller waterfalls) where you can witness the spectacle of raw nature and its breathtaking power.
A new access road and a system of hiking trails allow visitors to explore the land, rivers, and numerous waterfalls. At 312 feet in height, Pure Waterfall Estate is one of the highest and most pristine falls in the country and remains a major tourist destination (even though its nearest public viewpoint is over a mile away).
This site has up close and direct access to the falls. Hiking down to the base of an installed wooden cabin is an incredible experience - and an adventure one will never forget!
An extensive investment in infrastructure (road, trails, viewpoints, drainage culverts, entrance gates, etc.) have primed the land for immediate development with legal and municipal usage agreements in place. An agreement with ICE (Instituto Centro Electridad) has been signed to install a power line along Hwy 126.
Availability of power and the properties own unlimited clean water sources will make permitting and master planning a straightforward process. Pure Waterfall Estate is located 45-50 minutes north of the international San Jose airport (SJO) on the newly improved National Route 126.
The government has recently completed comprehensive infrastructure improvements in the area that have greatly benefited the entire region. This is now a burgeoning tourism corridor with its one-of-a-kind biological and geological diversity and its proximity to many of the country’s finest natural features. There are few places like it in the world. Pura Vida!
