Stunning ranch in the mountains near Monteverde of 480ha (almost 1200 acres), roughly half of it as working cattle ranch on open pastures, and the other half tropical forests and biological corredors.
While La Guaria Ranch is only 3.5 miles from Monteverde, it sits in a moderate climate that is clear and comfortable, while Monteverde is frequently rainy, cloudy, and cold, allowing the ranch to be a place to receive guests who will go into Monteverde. La Guaria has a fantastic variety of topography, vegetation, and climate.
Unbelievable views, both of the surrounding mountains and even of the Nicoya Gulf, where sunsets become a reflection of red and yellow colors on the water of the gulf.
The property includes 30 year-round springs as well as river and creek frontage. It lies in the Bellbird Biological Corredor, and by connecting two river valleys, it makes it possible for animals and birds to travel between the valleys.
Ecotourism was invented in Monteverde, around the corner, and is one of the biggest tourist destinations of the country with it's cloud forests reserves, adventure and eco-attractions, research institutes, schools, and restaurants and boutique hotels. The ranch offers you the possibility of elaborating on the existing private ranch with an amazing home, focus on the nature reserve, and/or create a residential or tourism hotel/development project. With 480ha and given the location, there are endless opportunities!
Moreover, the gravel road has just been replaced by a quality paved road, providing easy access to Monteverde and the area, increasing the opportunities for La Guaria Ranch.
There is a section of the property of about 15 acres that can be separated from the rest. In working with the government to donate land to the new road, the contractors developed five large terraces on a high point, ideal location for a hotel, restaurant, or other construction with some of the most impressive views around.
There are existing master plans for the property, with two levels of density. Available for review for potential investors.
