This 5 acres of superb bottomland is 3/4 cultivated with sustainable tropical fruit. More than 30 avocado trees (5 different species) all from grafted stock. Fully mature trees will yield 3-500 fruit per year. Not a huge income but supplemental. I also have bearing oranges, tangerines, grapefruit (pink & white), papaya (3 species), banana (5 species), mango (2 species) and more than 100 pineapple. The property has over 1000 feet of river front along a seasonal stream. During the height of the rainy season the river becomes un-passable. This past year there were 3 days when I could not drive across. The previous year there were about 8 days when it would have been difficult to drive across. Plans are for the municipality to build a bridge but I am not in favor of that option as it would greatly increase the traffic in this pristine area. The road would provide access to Corcovado National Park just 5 miles up the hill. This property is in the heart of the Osa Peninsula which according to National Geographic is the second most bio diverse area on the planet. Second only to the Amazon basin (they have more bugs). Click (copy and paste) this link for photos of the property: http://s1094.beta.photobucket.com/user/5weight0/library/ The property has two 1Br/1Ba homes and an additional building site. There is about 2 acre fenced around both homes and this provides security for pets. There is ample room for livestock or additions cultivation. All trees have been fertilized with composted chicken manure and growth rates are phenomenal. Grafted avocados have gone from 18 inch tall root stock to over 6 feet in one year. Organic pesticide is used to prevent defoliation from leaf cutter ants but no other pesticides or herbicides are used in the cultivation of my fruit. 100% Organic.. I am 68 years young and maintain the property with the assistance of a local man who has worked with me for 3 years and is 100% dependable and does excellent work as well as provides security during my absence when traveling. He is paid $4.00 per hour which is above standard here. I have learned that the phrase Organic Gardening is another description of WORK. Weeding and cultivation is a major investment that is necessary to maintain a healthy eco system for these plants. I am just getting a little too old for this endeavor and prefer to travel the world for my remaining years. I am asking $239,000 for the property and at this price I will not break even on my investment but knowing that I leave behind a legacy of food for future generations is satisfying. This land is 2 miles to Gulfo Dulce where there is an excellent mooring area which now harbors both sail and power boats to over 40 feet. You are about 8 miles from the nearest full service town which has an emergency clinic, 2 full service grocery stores, pharmacy, gas station, hardware store, and restaurants. I recently added an ingrained pool to the property which is full tiled and has jacuzzi jets. It has turned out to be a great investment. Usually, around 4:30 each afternoon I mix a cocktail made from fresh squeezed juice and recline and let the jets do their thing.
The phone # listed is a direct line to my cell in Costa Rica and cost from the USA is about .31 a minute.
