This beautiful property on the Osa Peninsula includes 54ha of titled land and utilizes an additional 16ha of beachfront which are part of natural heritage of the state.
The off-the-grid lodge and field station consist of almost 1´000m2 of buildings under roof, including a field station/lodge with six dormitories for a total of 28 beds and three shared bathrooms. Six private cabins sleep 24 people, and a staff house sleeps eight, with three bathrooms. There are, of course, research areas, an office, presentation areas, and vast common areas for socializing, etc. A large kitchen in the main building is built to prepare food for large groups. Solar electricity and water heating (renovated in 2019) keep the operation going.
Throughout the property there are miles of trails for walking, research, conservation awareness, etc, and even two tree platforms with a zip line to be at canopy height and used for observation of flora and fauna in the treetops.
The jungle surrounding this field station is the true tropical rain forest of Costa Rica, extending far inland and offering primary forest, trails, creeks, water sources, and pure nature all around. The beach, a protected and isolated cove, is directly in front of the field station, providing opportunities for swimming and snorkeling.
The property can be sold as a private estate for conservation, or be sold as the currently operating environmental education center, including the database, website, email accounts, trip advisor profile, promotional material, you tube presence, etc.
This is a great property for conservation and relaxation purposes as well.
