SANDY POINT ESTATES is a remarkable 12.9-hectare tract of land comprising eight separate maritime zone lots, all newly permitted by MINAE with use permits for ecotourism development.
Located less than 1 km as the crow flies from Puerto Jiménez, this private property is remote yet accessible. The only neighbor is the Preciosa-Platanares Wildlife Refuge, a nationally protected park that encompasses the Platanares River estuary and the mangrove forest on either side.
Lot 1 has 2.9 hectares and is one of the larger of Sandy Point’s lots. It has 125 meters of sandy beachfront.
The entire lot is flat, and the habitat is savanna-like, with tall grasses and shrubs, on land swept by offshore breezes. The property is amenable to development in 80% of its area.
Ecotourism development options include residential, lodging, health and wellness, nature tours and much more. The coveted use permit was issued in 2018 and is valid for five-year periods and renewable indefinitely.
Sandy Point Estates is an unusual opportunity for commercial development in the Osa Peninsula’s primary economic engine, ecotourism. The Puntarenitas Peninsula is renowned for having the Osa’s best swimming beach, Platanares.
The Golfo Dulce is said to be one of four tropical fjords in the world, and it’s a calving ground to both northern and southern Pacific humpback whale populations. The gulf is also an annual destination for whale sharks.
Inshore and offshore fishing is world-class, and in fact the Pacific waters off Costa Rica boast some of the best sailfishing in the world.
Horseback riding, ziplining, surfing, snorkeling, tree climbing, recreational gold panning and wildlife viewing are just a few of the reasons people from all over the world travel to the Osa to enjoy.
