Views and Amenities

Furthermore, this Costa Rica investment property project site has numerous high points, ridgelines, and cliff areas, which provide dramatic views of the ocean and surrounding mountains and volcanoes.

Development in Costa Rica varies widely both in the type of land and the quality of the construction. While many projects have been developed on steep slopes. They typically have a detrimental effect on the appearance of the land.
For the purpose of our initial planning efforts, we have identified 40% slopes to the upper limit of development.
Slope and Topographical features. – The project site is made up of two stacked ridges running parallel to the bay. Therefore creating two large platforms for development, with dramatic views. Since Costa Rica is free from snowfall or freezing temperatures. There are not the same constraints for maximum slopes for roadways or driveway access.


The presence of water is felt throughout most of the property, with two seasonal waterfalls present ranging from small trickles of water tucked away in the tropical forest, to 10-meter-high raging falls which will provide a dramatic backdrop to the resort. Also, the project entry road, with a wooden bridge crossing, would provide a unique entry feature to the resort. Moreover, the water theme could be carried throughout the property by integrating streams, galls, wetlands, and ponds into the resort features and the stormwater retention system.
