95% Of the property is located inside the Wild Life Refuge of Gandoca Manzanillo, which allows private property but minimizes the human impact and density to 3% of the total land. It can be segregated into minimum 1-hectare lots, to reassure the sustainability of the land management, as well as reassuring the preservation of the jungle and all of its inhabitants. You could do a couple of glamping, wooden rustic houses, or eco-luxury houses in each hectare.
Some of this area (around 3 or 4 hectares) was pasture land not so long ago, and It could be reforested with native and exotic fruit trees. Some of the wild mammals that can be seen include ocelots, wild pigs, martillas, tolomucos, white face monkeys, spider monkeys and howler monkeys, agoutis, etc.
The resting 5% of the property, around 2 hectares, is outside the Refuge. This means, you can build the structures you need for common areas to gather big groups of people. This part of the property is next to the main road, with electricity and an optic fiber connection.
It is next to 40 hectares of Private Reserve called La Ceiba, where the Jaguar Rescue Center liberates the rescued animals once they are healed. Across the street, about 500 m distance, there is another Private Reserve called Tropica Verde, which is more than 150 ha in total of preservation land. Also nearby, just recently, The Sloth Foundation bought 20 hectares for a preservation and educational center, specializing in Sloths and night insects. Finally, the smaller properties around are mainly local and foreign families with their residential houses and fruit trees in their gardens.
