This amazing property is beautifully situated in San Rafael de Nandayure, a tiny rural village with all the charms of the simple good life of the "Blue Zone" of Guanacaste, where people live longer because their lifestyles are conducive to peace and relaxation.

This tiny town of San Rafael is located near a great number of cultural and ecological attractions, including a water-fall/swimming hole, kayaking and motor-boating on the gulf, sugar-cane processing plant and coffee plant which give tours to the public.

The land is 75 hectares. It is 90 minutes away from Liberia Intenatinoal Airport. About 1 hour on the paved road to Samara through Nicoya, or about one hour's drive from four of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in Costa Rica, Coyote/San Miguel and Bejuco. Punta Islita is just a bit further.

In Samara you will find tourist attractions like tours, boating, fishing, horsebacking on the beach and jet skiing.

Known as 'Rancho Ricco', the property has nearly 200 acres of land and some of the most beautiful views in the mountains of the Peninsula Nicoya. At once pastoral and tranquil with its rolling hills, and yet breathtaking in its sweeping views of the Gulf of Nicoya, Isla Chira and the smaller surrounding islands.

Every nook and cranny of this ranch offers its own unique landscape and view.

Bordered by a vast nature reserve, the property has an abundance of springs and two streams with waterfalls. So abundant is its water supply that the property provides half the water for the entire town.

All this privacy in a pristine setting is located less than fifteen minutes from Carmona, the largest town in the Canton of Nandayure, an hour from some of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches on the Pacific Coast and 20 minutes from the Gulf, where a boat may be moored and kayaking is amazing.

The ranch holds a variety of wildlife, wild and domestic animals including twenty horses, over 7½ acres of teak, many rare and endangered hard woods, and a great variety of fruit trees including, mangos, papayas, avocados, rose apple, cashew, coconut and other palms, and a wide variety of citrus. Ginger and yucca grow wild for the picking.

Located on this magnificent ranch is a guest lodge consisting of 8 rooms, a very large and impressive kitchen, a spectacular rancho with views of the gulf (a large circular thatched roof structure which can comfortably hold forty people for dining, dancing, or seminars), Plenty of hot water and some private baths. Satellite Internet Available.

The property will include many extras with the sale. The home will come fully furnished, including beds, ample elegant dishware for large groups, housewares, linens, towels, equipment, washer/dryer and so forth. It is a truly 'turn key' property.

The horses, four or five of them, will also convey if one wishes. Also included in the sale if one is interested is a sailboat that sits in the San Pablo harbor on the Gulf of Nicoya, as well as a large hot air balloon that was once used to take guests up in. Both are in need of repairs, but would be worth while projects if those were something someone would be interested in.

In addition to all this, we are including a large beach lot in the beach town of Bejuco, just south of Samara and Punta Islita. The lot is in a protected area for nesting sea turtles and cannot be built upon, but is great for camping trips and day trips to the beach.
