The project was born with the idea of a man, passionate about the care of nature. The farm was acquired 22 years ago. The owner created the seedlings for planting timber trees, such as: Teak, Mahogany, Cocobolo, Cedar, Guanacaste, Cenízaro, Laurel, Madero Negro, Mahogany Cedar, Yellow Cortés, and fruit trees such as Manga, Lemon, Water Apple, Avocado, Guaba, Soursop, Caimito, Apple Rose, Sapodilla, Loquat, Chestnut, Cas, Nance, and I plant them throughout the farm of 115 hectares of land, with the idea of feeding the animals in this area.
The Canton of San Mateo is not only known for its exquisite natural beauty and fruit production area, but also for the opening of new logistics projects and industrial parks, which makes Orotina and San Mateo one of the important tourist and residential destinations of the country. The property is located near several beaches such as Punta Leona, Herradura, Jaco, Puntarenas and also the Carara Biological Reserve, the majestic Turrubares Hill, Tarcoles River with the crocodile sanctuary, the Canopy Tour and much more. All less than 1-hour drive.
The property can be accessed by 4 major national roads such as Monte Aguacate, Highway # 131 that connects with Route # 1 Cambronero to go to the beaches of Guanacaste and national route # 27 that leads to the border with Panama.
At this time the project has 115 hectares of extension, located in one of the highest hills in the area, and is considered as a green lung of San Mateo and Orotina. The climate of the area is very cool with balanced temperatures with constant cool breezes from the Orotina Valley. This climate is considered one of the healthiest in the world, according to the study of the Natural Geografic magazine.
In the farm live many wild animals such as deer, panthers, guatusa, tepescuincle, white-faced monkey, congos, pizotes, raccoons, iguanas and others. Also the birds like toucans, yigüirros, purple dove, yurela dove, tortillas, piapas, pillboxes, martín peño and a variety of birds of passage.
