Lake Arenal, Costa Rica, real estate for sale
B19 Riverside water sports, recreation and camping complex - $2,000,000
It's located on the developing Miravalles Volcano Tourist Circuit
The huge pool can be zoomed into from a 250-foot slide. The pool has a children's shallow section at one end and a covered swimmer's bar at the other.
This 4.5-acre recreation center, just 2 years old, is located in the relatively hot lowlands of Guanacaste at Bagaces, a town on the Interamerican Highway 30 minutes from the international airport at Liberia. The property is about 1 mile east of Bagaces on the paved road to the villages on the flanks of the Miravalles Volcano. It borders the Rio Bagaces for about 870 feet. There's a water slide of 260 feet into a very large pool. To regain the start house, one actually can enter a tunnel in the water and walk up underground to the slide start house. At one end of the pool is a large shallow pool for children. At the other end is a swimmers' bar. About half of the property is forested. There's a campground on the edge of the forest and a pretty trail winding through it. Among the several buildings on the site are a modern, tiled lavatory and shower building, a kitchen and snack bar, a roofed party center accomodating 70 people (above the showers, toilets and dressing areas), a typically rustic large Costa Rican rancho, and storage facilities. In a curved wall in front of the dressing rooms are 6 outsdoors showers for men and 6 for women. Among other recreational facilities are a soccer field and a volleyball area. The pool has a diving platforms as well as the slide. Much has been done in just two years to develop this complex and there's much more that could be done to make this attraction with its forest and bordering river an even better destination for family and tourist recreation. This area, already known as the Miravalles Tourist Circuit, as a whole has great activity and even greater promise as a tourist destination. The paved road leads through beautiful terrain with several micro-climates to at least 7 villages on the slopes of Miravalles Volcano, the highest mountain in the range. Around the mountainside tourists may enjoy hotsprings, mud baths and other volcanic features of the dormant Miravalles. Five geothermal plants extract vapors from deep in the volcano to produce electricity. There are many opportunities for tourists to visit farms and agricultural processing plants. There's horseback riding and even fishing at various locations.
