Today’s featured listing is one of the Osa Peninsula’s legacy properties, one part of the cattle ranch put together by family patriarch Aurelio (Yeyo) Rodriguez and now operated and owned by grown sons and heirs. Finca Zapote is located in Zapote, just ten minute’s drive south from the town and peninsular capital of Puerto Jimenez. The property has 33 hectares in total, ten hectares titled and 23 hectares maritime zone. The planos published show a total of 37 hectares, but in fact, four hectares have been segregated leaving 33 hectares for sale for an asking of $10,000,000. The farm is deforested pastureland and as such is eligible for development, either as a whole or in segregated parts. The titled portion bounds the Carate highway and as such is eligible for segregation in any lot sizes desired.

The Maritime Zone is regulated by the Municipality of Golfito, and the farm has an active use permit in its corporate name. Because of its proximity to town and its storied beach front, this expansive property has been proposed for a variety of development purposes, including: 1) upscale resort / hotel ; 2) segregation into residential lots, either y agricultural parcels, horizontal condominium or regular titled lots of any size along the public road (Highway) that bounds the farm; 3) golf course. It is also ideal for an environmental demonstration project coupled to one or more development plans.

Finca Zapote is on the road separating Puerto Jimenez from Matapalo. The surf reaching its shores is not big enough for regular surfing, but the beach is ideal for swimming and body-surfing, stand up paddling and also snorkeling and scuba diving on the patch reefs that are scattered a short distance offshore from the beach.

The farm presently hosts around 75 head of cattle and whereas agricultural represents a hypothetical land use—along with conservation for that matter—the farm is prime residential and tourism real estate and too valuable for these purposes than to continue operation as a cattle farm or for other types of agriculture.

All taxes are current, title accurate, use permit up to date, and there are no liens or encumbrances on the property. Though there is no water concession, there is ground water universally distributed across the property and accessible at low cost through hand-dug shallow wells.

Likewise the domestic power grid does not reach the farm at present, with the final post a few hundred meters from the northwestern property and therefore easy to extend to the property.
