Unique primary jungle property of 295 Ha to be preserved for generations to come, Boca Tapada . Lets do the right thing and preserve this unique Preservation Project for generations to come.
We are looking for a sustainable corporation to purchase this virgin rain forest property and will protect it for generations to come. The property is, I think, quite rare due to its size (295 hectares) and that the vast majority is absolutely virgin forest. Also a small lodge with low foot print could be desired as an owner. The 295 hectares near Boca Tapada (“finca Pavón Grande”) is 100% virgin forest. it has been paying Payments for “Servicios Ambientales” from Fonafivo “PSA” of about $18K per year. . They are transferable to new owner.
This property is very wild. It has a central trail and a lot of waters and very varied topography. One cannot go in alone because of the jaguars, pumas, etc.! It has enormous trees, many hundreds of years old, some with nesting pairs of the endangered Great Green Macaws. I would highly prefer to sell this land to someone who would be interested to preserve it, being a virgin forest, it is absolutely packed with various types of understory and emergent palm trees. There is extensive water including a navigable waterway that connects with the San Carlos river. The topography is very varied – very – and it took me and friends over 8 hours to hike around the perimeter…up, down, cross waterways…actually even though I am an experienced hiker in very good physical shape it exhausted me 100%.
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
