The location of the Corcovado Tent camp farm, is about 90 minutes from Puerto Jimenez located in the Osa peninsula. The main town on the Peninsula de Osa is Puerto Jimenez, which has about 12000 people. Over the past few years there has been a lot of development in the area which has brought more goods and services to the town. There are also several smaller towns to the north of Pto. Jimenez like Doz Brazos, La Palma, and Rincon. On the south end of the peninsula is the world famous surf area known as Matapalo. This area is highly sought after and has many ex-patriots living in the community. Carate which is the south gateway to Corcovado National Park is on the west side of the peninsula 45 Km from Puerto Jimenez. Road access is very important to most people. Most roads around here are four-wheel drive only. Passing through a creek or river is a daily occurrence. In some cases you must build or reinforce and then maintain an access road to your property. Even more properties and home sites are available to you if you don’t mind riding a horse or boat to access your property.
Wake to the sounds of Howler monkeys and pounding surf, look out upon endless vistas of jungle and sea, go for a horse ride along the empty pristine beach, take your own kayak, watch migratory and resident wading birds and raptors, walk amongst forest giants, snorkeling and diving, savor the fresh ocean breeze, …these are but a few of the day’s activities that will restore your energy and satisfy your soul.
Room for Development
• Though conceived as a tent camp, the owner also imagined one day doing a Sustainable Development on the property and as a result the owner was always thinking about developing a 20 to 30 room boutique Hotel on this property. The owner is very willing to be involved and has several options to consider, and has been one the main pioneers of the Costa Rican Tourism development.
It is no overstatement to declare that there is no property like this anywhere in the world. The combination of biodiversity, location, development potential and favorable political climate is unmatched in the tropical zone.
Even within Costa Rica, it is a rare and precious jewel. Once you’ve walked on the beaches and looked for miles in either direction without seeing anyone other than the Scarlet Macaws squawking from the almond trees that line the shore, you will know what a special opportunity this is. Whether for corporate retreat, boutique hotel, sustainable development, or, perhaps most ideally, a private estate and sanctuary, the land and its nature will reward you and your vision.

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
