DISCOVER A WHOLE NEW WORLD!

Fall in love with Costa Rica and have a great getaway off-the-grid for family and friends, a three-hour flight from Houston! This ranch pays for itself, has more recreation than you can imagine and is close to the famous beach resorts of Costa Rica. Enjoy great fishing, rafting, animal viewing, hole-up in the fishing lodge where the views make you think you own the world, ride a Razr to the on-ranch waterfall and enjoy multiple trails leading to the best fishing holes along one mile of the Cano Negro River.

The women can surf, scuba dive, golf and lay on the beach at the Four Seasons Resort, while the men fish, disconnect, ride UTVs, punch cattle and make money from this 250-head cattle-fattening operation. The ranch is remote, yet accessible, unique and of incomparable beauty. Treat your friends and business associates to an adventure they will be talking about for years and wanting more. Don’t miss the cougars, coati, sloths, tapirs, armadillos, parrots, tucans, and  exotic tropical birds as you ride your ranch muleback in improved grassland and dense tropical forests and views of Tenorio National Park. Pull great Tropical Gar from the river with spinning or fly equipment. Also, enjoy a ranch-grown, ripe and delicious coconut while touring the ranch.

“I have ridden this ranch, what an amazing experience, what beauty! You are just taking in a new colorful giant tree when a different species of parrots or tropical hawks fly by. Almost went swimming in a deep pool in the river and had the best coconut milk I ever tasted right from a nearby Palm tree while on horseback. And dinner near the Hyatt watching the sunset, complete with five course meal by an Italian gourmet chef was a great ending!”

In northwest Costa Rica, about 30 miles from the famous Pacific Coast beaches and Liberia International Airport, this ranch features great access to diverse recreation, nearly a square mile of beautiful tropical mountains, one mile of frontage and excellent fishing on the crystal-clear Cano Negro River and excellent views of the Vieja, Miravalles and Tenorio National Park, as well as Lake Nicaragua.

In terms of recreation, the ranch has excellent fishing for Tropical Gar, Wolf Fish and Mountain Mullet. Enjoy rafting and kayaking and the beautiful 60-foot waterfall adjoining the ranch. Horseback riding across the rolling hills of the scenic ranch is a must for everyone.

The ranch boasts a mild climate, exotic tropical trees and wildlife and proximity to Rincon de la Vieja National Park to the West; the balance is surrounded by private property. The scenery on the drive to and from the ranch is breathtaking and there are abundant water resources, including 7 natural springs and creeks that flow into the Cano Negro River. Two small dams provide gravity flow to multiple cattle water tanks. Solar power is used for electric fencing throughout this operating ranch.

This ranch makes money annually from a well-managed 250 head feeder steer/bull fattening operation supported on the improved grass covering the ranch. By renting neighboring ranch land or using a feeding operation, the capacity is easily increased to 350-400 head. There is good access to an improved, graveled public road and ranch infrastructure includes worker’s quarters, covered corrals, and sheds.

Professional American management is available if you choose not to not to run the place yourself.


The Polaris Razr has local representatives and can be provided on the ranch.
