Rancho Aloe consists of approximately 4969 acres of incredibly beautiful Costa Rica cropland and jungle fronting on the east side of the new 4 lane Pan-American Highway 5 kilometers north of Bagaces, approximately 3,000 acres of crop and grazing lands, 1969 acres of natural habitat that could be improved for more production. Property is fenced with 2.5 miles of frontage on the Pan-American highway.
Rancho Aloe has an extensive 1.5 million dollar irrigation system that uses water pumped from a river through underground 6 inch pipes to cannon & drip systems that irrigate the farm during the dry season. The 4 rivers run year round and the farm has governmental permits to use this water for its foreseeable needs. In the rain season May thru November average total rainfall is 22 inches and is ample water to raise crops.
Rancho Aloe used to maintain a herd of cattle and currently has a small herd of horses. The ranching activity has stopped as the seller is preparing the property for sale. It is estimated that Rancho Aloe can currently carry 1200 head of cattle and other livestock.
There are rock formations on Rancho Aloe that provide excellent materials for road maintenance and building. An airstrip has been improved as well.investing in real estate has two very important components:
Guanacaste’s Gold Coast region is currently considered the prime location for investing time, energy and money. Everything an investor needs is right here. Geographically, you will find some of the most highly sought-after and tourist-friendly beaches in central America. Viewing a sunset in Playa Grande will illustrate what I’m talking about.
Guanacaste is a melting pot of nationalities and ethnic groups, living and working together. Guanacastecos born after 1980 have grown up directly interacting with people from many different countries and cultures. Investment risk declines significantly when this type of racial and cultural diversity exists. The active labor force of Guanacaste is maturing and being trained on-the-spot, which means investors have access to a qualified, socially skilled and educated labor pool.
Guanacaste hasn’t figured itself out yet. That leaves the door wide open to opportunities, not only for real estate investment but investment overall. Consider the services sector alone, for example, supporting the burgeoning tourism economy. This region’s potential is still relatively untapped. It is only now undergoing the early years of “true” growth. Construction of a new, large water supply to serve the northern Guanacaste area is a dynamic sign of things to come.
