La Guaria Ranch is an 1188-acre property just over 3½ miles from the iconic, eco-destination of Monteverde, Costa Rica. It has expansive ocean and mountain views. It is available as a private ranch and nature reserve or as a location for a major tourism and residential development. Its natural beauty and setting, including open pastures, tropical forests, biological corridors, and working cattle ranch, create a unique opportunity in Costa Rica.
La Guaria is located midway between Costa Rica’s two international airports—San José and Liberia, just over two hours’ drive from either one or just a few minutes from Monteverde/Santa Elena. It also can be reached by helicopter from either airport in 30 minutes. A paved, reconstructed highway will replace the gravel road now passing the ranch. When completed in 2020, the new road will provide easy access to Monteverde, resulting in a large increase in traffic and visitors.
For the last 10 years Mountains of Costa Rica LLC has been assembling parcels, improving pastures and roads, and expanding beef cattle production on La Guaria Ranch. The property features over 30 year-round springs along with river and creek frontage. La Guaria has a wide variety of climate zones, topography, and vegetation within its 1188 acres. It is ready to become your private dream escape or to welcome an investor/developer for an ecologically sensitive complex of hotels, homes, forest reserves and tourism activities.
Unbelievable views, both surrounding mountains and even of the Gulf of Nicoya, where sunsets become a reflection of red and yellow colors on the water.
