Paraiso Del Bosque is 98.7 hectares subdivided into two separate lots. 93.7 hectares of Forest (60% old growth/40% secondary)
5 hectares of developed land The property is located just out of, Guapiles, Costa Rica. The property backs up against a 3000 hectare government forest protected reserve. This particular area of land is owned by the government to protect key water sources for the Caribbean slope. All of the water that starts and flows from our property is fed from natural springs either from the land above us or on our property. The aquifers are at the base of Volcan Turriabla and are at almost no risk of future contamination since the government protects almost 3000 hectares of reserve around the aquifers. Presently we have located roughly 17+ natural springs on the property that feed 3 rivers. The pristine environment has allowed the animals to return to the property allowing owners and visitors to spot mid size cats, wild boar, sloth, spider monkeys along with the typical white face monkey and howler monkey, tapir, toucans, turtles, white bat,tamandua, oropendula, parrots and macaws.The property is under contract with a Fonafifo for the next 4 years and has been under contract for the last 10. Although Fonafifo normally offers contracts for carbon sequestering, our contract has additional clauses due to the particularly clean hydrology of the area to further help protect the water sources.Because of this special contract with the state the animals have returned and it is an unprecedented piece of property for viewing nature in the raw.
