This prominent working ranch is so well situated that there are views of Lake Arenal to the north, of the Arenal Volcano to the east, and of the town of Tilaran to the west. And of course there are beautiful views in every direction of the pastured and forested rolling hilltops along the southern side of the lake. It's located 2.5 kilometers past the village of Quebrada Grande and thus about 6 miles from Tilaran. The road from Tilaran is still hard-surfaced at this point. While the total price of $1,500,000 may seem daunting, it breaks down to what is these days a low cost of about $4.30 per square meter.
For someone interested in ecological health, this property, because of its scattered forests, presents an opportunity to greatly aid Arenal wildlife - howler monkeys, sloths, kinkajous, etc. - by planting seedlings of indigenous trees to re-establish feeding corridors between the forests, enabling the animals to follow their feeding routes without coming down to the ground. Lake Arenal's La Reserva Forest Foundation can not only help with such a project but provide a yearly payment per hectare for the reforested areas.
