San Luis de Morete , San Isidro del General, Pérez Zeledón, San José

Property Type: Land Size: 215,114 sqm – 53.16 Acres

Sitting at 3000 feet above the ocean, just 8 miles from the coast road, this unique 53-acre sanctuary looks at Bocana, a 300-foot waterfall. This unique property offers breathtaking mountain views, long views out towards the Caño Island and the sea.
The property currently features two houses, a garage with a bodega, a storage building, a laundry house, a greenhouse, and goat and chicken homes. There are currently three horses, and the riding in the area is exceptional.

The two custom-designed and constructed residences have a lot of charm and individuality. They are distinct from other residences in Perez Zeledon and the Osa. They were a partnership between the owners and Mick Clement, an English designer, builder, and artist who lives in Chirripo. The wood was primarily acquired locally in the Diamante Valley.

There is a bamboo grove as well as a cocoa tree cluster. There are several fruit trees. The former owners had a coffee field and banana plantation.

The property is surrounded by road frontage, and the internal roads are accessible by six different entries.
There are well-maintained internal roads and a permaculture-influenced agricultural area intended for food production and animal husbandry.

There is a well on the site. It is also connected to the communal water supply system. Electricity and Internet service is available in the property.

San Luis Morete is a small village, overlooking the ‘Whale’s Tail’, with friendly inhabitants. It has a school, a clinic, a church, a community salon, a soccer field and a small cafe and provisions store.
The Bocana (San Luis) waterfall is bordered on both sides with a 2500-acre nature reserve which is amongst the six most diverse bio regions in the country. It is home to howler monkeys, white faced capuchin monkeys, sloth, a jaguar, pumas and other mountain cats, white tailed deer and numerous other animal species. The area is prime for bird watching.
Sanctuaries such as this one, so close to the coast, are seldom to be found and are coveted places.
Another sanctuary, Marino Ballena, the protected marine park and home to the birthplace of humpback whales who arrive each year from both the northern and southern hemispheres at different times adds to the attraction of the area.
For the past twenty years, Santuario de Bocana, has been stewarded with special concern for the beauty and diversity of its natural environment, by the current owners who have only been able to visit it during holiday periods throughout the year.
The property is now available to new caretakers who share the same values of community
with the natural world.
