The gated neighborhood known as Pura Jungla (pure jungle) is where these three sister ocean view lots are situated. It was developed by Montana-born visionary expat Ray. When he first arrived on this property in the early 1990s, it was a cattle farm. Since there were virtually any trees, it was only natural that he would be entranced by the breathtaking ocean views. Small and large portions have always been divided by fence posts and barbed wire. One day Rays inspiration was catapulted forward when he watched baby monkeys squeal from the barbs as they traveled over the barbed wire to get from occasional tree to occasional tree because they just hadn’t figured it out. Ray proceeded to plant nearly 100,000 trees on this large tract of land. Many of the species are very hard to find these days. The diversity of the species, although a secondary forest, is growing and present as a hundreds year old primary forest would be/is. Now, as you can fathom, the monkeys and the tens of thousands of species that live in the area are just plain tickled pink to live here. Welcome to authentic Costa Rica.

All three of these lots have ocean views. Just over six acres of land with an ocean view are yours. You must possess all three, I beg you to believe. Most foreign buyers in this area desire at least a primary residence and a guest residence. The new building codes for these types of lots allows for one 300m (3230ft2) home and a total building footprint for residential purposes of 10%. However, with the three lots you get to have three ocean view homes and a total residential footprint of 2495m (just under 27,000ft2). There is internet, public water, backup onsight water, and electricity. HOA fees are only $1000/year per lot and they cover all the common area maintenance and keeping the road to your house in tip top condition. Also, they border the communities 50 or so acre green zone.

Here, we are literally six minutes by car to the closest beaches that are Callejones (Kai-yeah-hone-ace) and Blanca. Junquillal’s beaches are another minute. Playa Negra is about eight minutes and depending on road conditions you will be in Avellanas in roughly ten or so. The Liberia international airport is 75 minutes away, Tamarindo 35, and the county seat of Santa Cruz just 30.

You can find everything in the area. The list of activities in the area is enormous and includes over 20 incredible restaurants, a skate park, nook beaches where you can spend the entire day alone, estuaries to kayak, paddle board, or canoe, fishing, surfing, boogie boarding, swimming, and much more.

Here you will finally find that happiness that you have been searching for. I know. I and many others have.
