1.2 ACRES – Hidden Gem Elevated Lot with 360 Mountain View, Easy Access, Just A Few Minutes Away From Ojochal!!!!




  • MLS: COR046
  • Acres: 1.2


In our neighbourhood, easy access and near total tranquility usually don’t mix – not in the red-hot real estate market of Costa Ballena.

BUT there are still a few hidden gems where you can find a peaceful, quiet and nature-infused environment hidden from the hassle and bustle but just a few minutes’ drive away from all the services, amenities and attractions you can imagine. Such is the case with this piece of land, located in the quiet community of TRES RIOS right next door to the tourist and expat hub of OJOCHAL.

This lot fronts a paved public road and is accessed via a nicely prepared internal driveway. A steady but not too steep drive will bring you to the first plantel, located on your right about ½ way up to the top of the hill. Continuing up, the driveway swings to the left and terminates at the second plantel which stretches across the hilltop.

The plantels are flat and offer beautiful views of the surrounding hills, jungles and the coastal mountains which rise up to 1,300 metres (4,300 feet) above the Pacific shores. These mountains are often covered in mystic mists and dancing clouds, coming alive with giant waterfalls which can cascade hundreds of meters down the seemingly vertical slopes. Jungle animals like macaws, toucans, capuchin and howler monkeys, oropendolas, mesmerising blue morpho butterflies and many others make the surrounding forests their home – they will be your new neighbours! A nearby river is clearly heard from every spot of the property, even in the dry season.

The layout of this land offers many options for development including commercial undertakings. A stunning hacienda with a large swimming pool and panoramic mountain views can sit on the top plantel while the lower space can be occupied by a guesthouse – or perhaps the development of a large family compound can span the two building sites? Entrepreneurs will delight in considering short or long-term rental accommodation, a café, restaurant, or a sport facility like a gym or yoga studio. The lower plantel can be occupied by the commercial venture while the top can hold a residential development.

So many opportunities for mixing and matching!

And the business would be brisk – this area is a red-hot real estate zone and interest is starting to shift towards the quieter areas such as TRES RIOS – as many people prefer the more relaxed atmosphere of the smaller settlements. While this lot is tranquil and nature immersed, Ojochal and the Plaza Ventanas shopping center are a 10 minutes’ drive away offering pubs, restaurants, cafes, doctors and dentists, law offices, tourist shops and supermarkets, trips and excursions, a gas station, hardware stores, garden centers and many other services. The famous and spectacular Playa Ventanas can be reached by car in 10 minutes, as can the Pavones Waterfall or the catch-your-own tilapia restaurants.

For those who are looking for peace, beauty, and communion with nature but also the proximity of service and amenities – look no further. And if you are commercially minded, consider this great opportunity in one of the hottest markets of Costa Rica!
