0.55 ACRES – Unique Lot – Consented for a 23-Room Motel in the PLAZA VENTANAS, Surrounded by Mountains and Jungle!!!!




  • MLS: OJO546
  • Acres: 0.55


It is not often that a ‘TOO PERFECT TO BE TRUE’ opportunity arises…but here we are! This 2248 sqm lot, consented for a 23-room hotel/motel, sits right off the Costanera Sur highway (Route 34), THE major thoroughfare of Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast. This highway extends from Orotina in the north (west of San Jose) down to Palmar, where it merges with Route 2 and provides access to Panama and the world-famous Corcovado National Park. The Costanera serves tourists, ex-pats, travelers, commercial vehicles, and local traffic – and traffic = profit!

But not only does this property benefit from the prime highway and road frontage (83 meters of this frontage, to be exact) – it also sits in a thriving commercial area, PLAZA VENTANAS, that acts as a major service center for the surrounding towns and the local population. This mall includes a gas station (the only one between Palmar and Uvita, a distance of roughly 40kms), supermarket, cafe, artesian shops, restaurants, medical clinic, law offices, pharmacy, ice cream parlor, and many others. The mall owners recently installed massive dinosaur statues that tower over the surrounding structures. A giant T-rex and Triceratops drive the tourists to pull over and take photos, and in between these towering dinosaurs are scores of smaller animals like tortoises, pterodactyls, and tigers. A green area with umbrellas and picnic tables next to the T-Rex and a small water feature provides tables and shade. And why not go for a walk – a jungle trail around the gas station property takes you to Cinco Ventanas, a great stroll to enjoy and keep an eye out on the resident wildlife.

All these services and amenities fit perfectly with the property’s current plans and permits which consent for a 23-room hotel/motel to be constructed in this prime and accessible location. All the paperwork is ready and waiting for an individual with the right vision and drive to realize their dream! For about $2 million {EXTRA FROM THE COST OF THE LOT} the empty lot can be transformed into a premiere hotel/motel that is accessible and close to services (this cannot be said for most of the developments and lots in this area). The shovels are ready to hit the ground! OR maybe you have a different vision for this space – with such a prime location in the highly successful PLAZA VENTANAS, this spot is a true gold mine!

PLAZA VENTANAS is surrounded by jungles and towering coastal mountains that sharply rise to over 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) just a few kilometers behind the mall. The greenery is everywhere and animals such as toucans, macaws, and howler monkeys are often seen and heard along the borders of the mall. Brilliant Blue Morpho butterflies flap in between the shops and restaurants. The nearby ocean (less than 1km away) teems with dolphins, turtles, and migrating humpback whales.

Now about the local area: the lot is located just 1.7 km from the entrance to Ojochal, a growing but pristine jungle-clad town with scores of world-class restaurants, supermarkets, shops and services, entertainment and fitness centers, amazing rivers and waterfalls, and something new to discover every single day! The Cascada el Pavon, a very unique waterfall with a swimming hole and a huge boulder hanging over the drop is located in the town of Tres Rios just a few kilometers away. A few minutes’ drive takes you to Playa Ventanas, a pristine dark-sanded beach framed by a coconut grove, towering cliffs, and roaring sea caves. Playas Tortuga and Pinuela are also minutes away, while the nearby Garza Island can be reached via a 10-minute boat taxi. The broader COSTA BALLENA area is the current red-hot real estate market in Costa Rica.

DO NOT miss this amazing opportunity and schedule a visit today! With such an exclusive location, highway frontage, surroundings, and hot-of-the-press consents and paperwork, any business-savvy entrepreneur will RUN towards this property!
