Welcome to the Southern Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica – also known as Caribe Sur, where the local vibe is hot, lifestyle ultra-relaxed and the surrounding vegetation and beaches – simply paradisical! The Southern Caribbean is made up of a small group of communities shared by several tribes of local Indigenous Indians, Afro-Caribbean settlers, Ticos and an international blend of expats from over 50 different countries. The main tourist towns of Cahuita and Puerto Viejo are located approximately 1 hour south of the port city of Limon or 4 hours from the international airport in San Jose.
Cahuita is a ocean front small village located on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. It is located near one of the most beautiful rain forest in Cahuita National Park with lots of monkeys and a living coral reef with plentiful of tropical fish species that you can view snorkeling. You wouldn’t find your typical fast food restaurants like KFC, Burger King or Mcdonalds. However, there are local foods to try like “Ron Don” ( Jamaican dish cooked with coconut milk and fish known as Run Down) or Patties ( a pastry stuffed with spicy meats or veggies) which is much fresher. There are some banks, several very good restaurants, many small hotels and restaurants, souvenir shops, and also a bilingual school is nearby.
The village has a nice vibe with reggae music and friendly locals and expats. You can walk to most attractions in the village such as boat rides, yoga and massage, buy fresh lobster and fish, and visit very nice restaurants. Also you can walk to the entrance of the Cahuita National Park. Enjoy the slow pace and manana attitude, a natural remedy for stress.
As far as Cahuita real estate goes, almost all the land has been purchased in this area, but there is still lots of virgin coastline starting from Cahuita reaching nearly to Limon.
This 1 Ha piece of beautiful land is just on walking distance minutes located from the beach and 5 minutes towards the small rustic town of Cahuita and very near the high way coming in Cahuita. This piece of land is very centrally located and we think is well suited for a small gated community or as residential houses. The land has more than 90 meters road frontage. There are small hotels nearby. The property is basically with secondary forest but all ready to be developed and the green areas are already established. Water and electricity are nearby and easy to connect. This part is in the regulatory plan to be developed as urbanization and is not part of the National Park zoning plan. Owner has 2 Ha adjoined, for joint venture for development.
Great starting price for $20 per meter
I hereby declare that I know Mr. Peter Van Hussen, owner of Eco-Realtor Costa Rica Company, for more than 5 years.
During all that time, Peter has characterized himself, among other personal merits, for been a person who loves nature and for working actively in projects, programs, commissions and working groups related to nature preservation and to environmental conservation in general.
During all the years that I worked as an environmental advisor for the Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce and for the Municipality of Garabito County, both located in Jacó City, I could observe that Peter was regularly invited to be part of projects and working commissions that had to do –among other topics- with the reduction of the environmental pollution existing in the Garabito County due to untreated sewage waters, with conservation and restoration of the watersheds that exist in the mountain zone of the county, with the problems that exist in the coastal zone, with ecotourism development, with protection and development of the nearby national parks and equivalent reserves, and in general with sustainable development of Garabito.
In all these commissions and working groups, Peter stands out for his excellent ideas and for his very active participation, and for the personal experience he demonstrated because of the jobs he has had and because of the many trips he has taken in his life.

Peter was personally recommended to me by one of his peers – a successful real estate professional – and I quickly knew why. I realized that Peter’s ethics towards responsible stewardship of land was exactly what I was looking for in marketing my unusual property of virgin forest. He listened carefully and understood my desire to search for a buyer intending to preserve the forest in perpetuity, and he already had the connections to advertise to this type of client. I am very impressed by the weight Peter places in responsibility towards a sustainable environment as an integral part of his business.David Reuland
