The Jewel of Montezuma
Perched above Costa Rica’s unspoiled Nicoya coast, Las Cascadas offers endless views of the ocean, reef, tropical forest, and Montezuma’s famous waterfalls. A rare find with commercial, agricultural and residential opportunities, the 14 acre property can be divided and developed into 5 separate parcels per the seller. With private access to Montezuma’s famous waterfalls, build your dream home with unobstructed views, or develop a small private resort conveniently located close to town and stunning white sand beaches.
The property encompasses 14 acres of hilltop, gentle slope, mango grove and pristine rainforest, hosting a wide variety of unique Costa Rican plants and wildlife. The property’s Río Montezuma descends into cascades and pools though a ravine of lush, tropical forest. This property enjoys the only private access to the middle and lower waterfalls, river and pools, which occupy its southern and western boundaries. By hike or horseback, you can traverse the property’s short, private footpath and dive into cool, clean freshwater pools. The upper Montezuma falls drop 15-feet (5 meters) into a large pool, flowing to the middle falls, a 40-foot (13 meter) drop which fall into another large pool. That pool then drops over a spectacular 130-foot (40 meter) lower falls into a deep, wide swimming lake. Water sources include a natural spring and the ability to connect to municipal water.
Although naturally secluded and private, the property is just minutes from the town center of Montezuma and its surrounding beaches. The property has a private footpath that leads down to Montezuma Bay, and is just a five minute drive to town. Montezuma is famous for its long stretches or white sand beaches, and offers a wide variety of activities and services catering to the tourism industry and expatriate community, including tours, surfing, snorkeling, scuba, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, galleries and boutiques. Several of Montezuma’s best restaurants are a stone’s throw from the property. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to develop the jewel of Montezuma.
