https://vivatropical.com/property/listing/900986/ Welcome to El Paraiso Azul, an iconic Eco-Lodge located on the prestigious Perezoso Road in the sought-after village of Ojochal de Osa famous for its friendly locals, large international ex-pat community, wilderness and views, fantastic restaurants, and incredible beaches. The lodge rests atop the first ridge above the ocean, a high-demand location speckled with restaurants and estate homes that overlook the Pacific and, on the other side, offer majestic mountain vistas. And speaking of the views…they are SPECTACULAR…. one could even say jaw-dropping! The flat Pacific Ocean horizon extends from left to right, meeting the Costa Rican coast just 300 meters away from the lodge – you can see and hear the waves! On your right, you see the vast expanse of the ocean while on your left is a maze of protected sandbars, islands, and mangroves that make up the vast Terraba River delta. This is the longest river in Central America and one of its delta arms enters the ocean ‘front and center’ of the lodge – the waters of the river meet the power of the Pacific creating very interesting wave patterns that change with the tides. The Terraba River separates Isla Garza from the mainland. The island offers 17 kilometers of wild, natural, and pristine ocean-facing beaches. It is just under 900m from the property and is accessible by a quick water taxi ride from the nearby oceanside settlement. On the riverside you can experience the incredible mangroves and related wildlife in a kayak or boat, touring to photograph numerous species of birds, monkeys, and parrots as well as caimans and possibly crocodiles too! Once back from your adventures you have the best seat in the house for the nightly crimson sunset show – you can watch the sun descend into the waters of the Pacific while you relax in the pool or sip a mimosa on the deck adjacent to the restaurant! Currently, the lodge offers 11 rooms, 5 suites in the main building offering “WOW” ocean and sunset views, and 6 rooms located in the 3 detached casitas which offer majestic and panoramic mountain vistas. Did I mention that this property is an INVESTOR’S DELIGHT?… There is room to build several additional casitas to expand the business (and your profit)! All the areas of the land offer fantastic panoramic views of the jungle-covered mountain range – the right vision will create magical additions to the already exceptional lodge. The views are not the only perks of this property – as the land is surrounded by wild and towering rainforests you can expect famous Costa Rican visitors – toucans, parrots, several species of monkeys (they often descend down to the pool area), blue morpho butterflies, hummingbirds, iguanas and countless other jungle animals, birds, and amphibians. And expect daily overflights by the brilliant and noisy scarlet macaws – Garza Island is their sanctuary and they leave every morning, scattering in many directions as they fly towards the hills and shores in search of whatever fruit or nut is in season. The sounds of the jungle permeate the atmosphere and you must get used to seeing infinite shades of blue in the Pacific Ocean and 50 shades of green in the rainforest that encroaches on the property from every direction. Tropical flowers, orchids, and plants offer vivid splashes of color. Your guests will experience a laid-back, resort-like atmosphere with the opportunity to enjoy adventures like no other in the Southern zone of Costa Rica. They will wake up to the smell of fresh coffee, bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, and fresh seasonal fruits. The lodge vicinity offers plenty of lands to build a large sun deck/yoga platform as well as to expand the restaurant and add an upper level for a lookout/lounge area – with 360-degree views, this would surely be an investment that pays! Are you ready to make your move? Create the lifestyle you have been dreaming about! This is an incredible WORK AND PLAY OPPORTUNITY. Do not miss out. Call us now for your personal tour.
