|242 acres ocean-view above Matapalo -
Finca La Gloria is in fact a conglomeration of 4 separate farms. These mountaintop properties arelocated 9 kilometers above Matapalo, and represent the 'next' generation of ocean-view farms. From the crown of the property one 180 degree coastal views from Manuel Antonio to Domincal, and also has 180 degree views of the surrounding mountains. Currently, the land is covered with low growth, but the topography is gentle enough that it is extremely developable. Furthermore, while many farms share common boundaries on the mountaintop/ridgeline, these farms extends completely over, allowing for the use of the major ridgeline.
The details of the individual farms are as follows:
1. 44 hecs (110 acres) - $500,000
2. 18 hecs (45 acres) - $180,000
3. 15 hecs (37 acres) - $150,000
4. 20 hecs (50 acres) - $180,000
TOTAL = 97 hecs (242 acres) - $1,010,000
Matapalo is definitely an 'up and coming' area. The road between Quepos and Dominical is finally being paved, and along this 42 kilometer stretch of coastline, Matapalo represents the half-way point.
