Lake Arenal, Costa Rica, real estate for sale

Take advantage: building with great potential now just $85,0000

B13 Remodeled commercial building on busy lake highway - $245,000
This extensively renovated business complex within yards of Nuevo Arenal's main tourist area was formerly leased to restaurant and souvenir businesses in the main building and to a crafts manufacturing business in the adjacent space, but is now vacant. It's located just 200 yards from the turn into Nuevo Arenal on the busy tourist route from La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano. The second story is open to take advantage of the temperate tropical climate and the lake view. It's located right across the highway from the lake on an inlet which ICE has already approved as the future site of a marina. This promising complex is available for $85,000, on which the owner is willing to carry a lease/option with significant down. There is a 2-bedroom apartment on the first floor while the second floor has a half-bathroom. The property is suitable for a range of businesses. Because of the large shop building and the parking availble in front, this could be a car repair business. It could be a combination cafe, souvenir shop, and kayak rental. There are many possibilities. In addition, the small 2BR home adjacent to the business is available for $65,000. The lakeview house - just steps across the tourist highway from an arm of the lake - and adjacent lot are offered together for $77,000. See photos and info at H133.
The remodeled building is now open with a restaurant, gift shop, and craft manufacturer occupying the spaces. The complex is right across the tourist highway from the lake.
