Nature Lot in San Ramon mountain area, with beautiful view.The second largest district in the province, San Ramon lies an hour away northwest of the capital San Jose, and is easily accessible by road from Alajuela city. Set amidst a dramatic landscape of mountains, San Ramon is a close-knit place with strong community ties and has a slow relaxed pace of life.
A relaxing place, San Ramon offers tourists plenty of luxury and affordable accommodations and hotels, along with some excellent restaurants and bars. With plenty to do for nature lovers, there are a number of hiking trials and canopy tours of the surrounding area. Here, you will find a variety of animals and birds such as monkeys, hummingbirds, deer, coatis and sloths in the nearby tropical forest. Lying in the stunningly beautiful Central Valley of Costa Rica in Alajuela province is the tiny city of San Ramon.
In the middle of 4 retired gold mines, and very near an active one. Mina “Monkada” is retired y its 1000 hectares are now a forest reserve. Its neighbor “Finca Magallanes another 1000 hectares under Minaet forest reserve control. There are also several other very large farms that are pure forest.
This mother farm has also been in a project of reforestation with native trees. This effort has brought many fruits. Not just native fruits for you and me but for birds, and mammals as well. This is a paradise for bird watchers, i could show you 100+ photos of different birds. We also have deer, ant eaters, foxes, as well as the more common animals, whiteface monkeys y congo monkeys, raccoons, etc. There are private swimming holes nearby and 5 large waterfalls. Access Road towards the lot will be paved in the next year. Several building terraces are possible.
Apparently there is a lot of gold in the area so there is a big chance you have your own gold on this property.
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
