The Wildlife Refuge

This is a pristine property teeming with wildlife. It is formed by about 74 acres of a combination of jungle and extensive tropical fruits botanical gardens. The property has about 1/2 a mile fronting the beautiful river La Vieja.

Location: Alturas de Javillos, San Carlos, next door to the internationally known Costa Rica Tree Houses Hotel. It is one mile north of the hamlet of Santa Clara, half way between Ciudad Quesada and the Arenal volcano, both about 30 minutes away.

This is an ideal location for a tourist project, an ecological development or a personal retreat. It would also be great as a very low cost maintenance investment.

The property is a combination of hills, undulating ground and flat land.

The gravel road running across all the length of the property begins at this road, which is the main road between San Jose and the Arenal Volcano area. It is one of the best and more scenic roads in the country.

There is a spring in the property which forms a beautiful water fall. A rustic spa has been built around this spring with natural pools, locker room, bathroom, picnic area, gazebos and other facilities.

In addition to the natural rain forest, there are hundreds of tropical fruits trees in the property, either planted along the internal road or reforesting what used to be pastures and agricultural land. Several thousand tropical fruit trees, as well as other species of trees that produce fruits for the wildlife, were planted in a random fashion to attract the wildlife and are now producing great quantities of fruits, among them Mango, Cashew, Caimito, Anonna, Guayaba, Avocados, different species of banana, Rambutan Water Apple, Rose Apple, Bread Fruit, Abiu, Bilimbi, Durian, Jackfruit, Mamey Zapote, Rollinia, Soursoup and many many more. The fruits of these trees are a magnet for the wild life, you can see many species of birds, toucans, parrots, as well as mammals, reptiles and marsupials: sloths, armadillos, ant eaters, deer, wild cats, howler monkeys, tayra , coati, dart frogs, iguanas and many more.

There are also about eighty stands of special types of bamboo which were planted to be used in construction.

The Arenal volcano, the Arenal lake and the town of La Fortuna form an area that is probably the most visited region in Costa Rica, with many hotels, restaurants and resorts near by like the world famous hot springs of Tabacon and Baldi, and the Arenal Hanging Bridges. In this area there is also a heavy concentration of other tourist activities like Canopy tours, white water rafting and kayaking, the Venado caves, La Fortuna waterfall and many more, most within a half an hour drive from our property.

The private, very well maintained and picturesque gravel road goes all the way through the property connecting the entrance on the asphalted road with the river and the waterfall complex. This road is usable all year around.

At the little hamlet of Santa Clara, no more than five minutes away, and other places near by the property, you will find several typical restaurants, a very good bakery offering a surprising large variety of breads and pastry, several grocery stores and fruit stands as well as hardware stores. Ten minutes away is the town of Florencia with more restaurants, medical clinic, pharmacies, grocery stores and bank.

The property is 30 minutes away from the main town in the northern part of Costa Rica: Ciudad Quesada.

In Ciudad Quesada you will also find first rate medical and dental care, both public and private, as well as banks.

Near Ciudad Quesada you will also find hot springs resorts like the "Hotel Occidental el Tucano", "Thermales del Bosque", "Tucanito" and others, the biggest Zoo in the area: "La Marina Zoo" and other attractions.
