Small Farm For Sale in Sierpe, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Sm Manageable Pristine Cacao Farm 'live The Chocolate Life'

Asking Price: $79,500 USD  (Financing Available)

There is a world wide shortage of cacao which is causing prices to continue to rise. Experts say, the shortage will continue to drive cacao prices higher. Seventy percent of the world's cacao is grown on the Ivory coast of Africa, an area riddled with economic and political unrest. The world will not give up their chocolate. This small well maintained pristine cacao farm in a great location is ready to help meet the demand. There are plenty of markets close by for cacao and exporting is easily done. Sell your cacao or make your own fabulous chocolate, you have options.

Titled property with registered survey. Completely fenced and easy to maintain. Good road access right to the gate. Flat land is easy to keep cut with a household lawn mower. Farm has 250 trees that are a little over 1 year old that will start producing in another year. The variety of the trees is Trinitario and have been planted from seed stock provided by Catie which produces a strain of cacao that is, both disease resistant and higher in production. There are additional trees (about 50) in the nursery to use to expand or replace any lost or injured trees.

The shade trees that are in place and growing very well are 'plantino' or 'plantain' and bananas which make for a great 'second crop'. You can see the plantain in some of the photos.

This farm is in Sierpe which is a safe and peaceful little town on a dead end road in the SW of Costa Rica on the Osa Peninsula. The town is on the Sierpe River which is a deep water river that flows into the Pacific Ocean. It is about a 35 minute boat trip to the ocean from Sierpe through one of the most spectacular mangrove reserves in the world. The ocean has one of the best fisheries in the world and is easily accessible. Sierpe has several small very nice riverfront cafes and most of what ever you might need in groceries, hardware etc. Sierpe is just 15 minutes from an airport in Palmar with daily scheduled flights to the capital of Costa Rica, San Jose. Palmar is a larger town with ALL of the amenities you may need. It also has a newly remodeled clinic which is a mini hospital. Just 15 minutes from Palmar is a newly constructed very nice hospital in the city of Cortez. Sierpe also has a small clinic.

This is the best part of Costa Rica. Just minutes from heading up into the mountains and coffee growing regions and minutes from the big blue Pacific ocean. Corcovado National Park is just a short boat ride away with tours into this pristine and well protected park daily from Sierpe. Scuba diving and snorkeling around Caño island is some of the best in the world. Caño island is also a National Park and fish refuge making the diving and snorkeling top notch.

If you are looking for a way to move to the peaceful and happy country of Costa Rica and make some income, this is the place and the business opportunity. Simple and very doable. There are other properties in the area that can be used to expand as you grow your business.

Come down and enjoy what the Costa Ricans call "Pura Vida" the pure life.
