A Sanctuary in Nature located in the lush tropical hills above Parrita, is an oasis in nature. The lush tropical sanctuary includes a 9 acre cacao plantation with two luxury hacienda style homes and a cacao and herbal medicine business.
The functioning business is valued at $145,000 and is included in the $745,000 purchase price (a $50,000 savings). If you choose to purchase only the cacao estate farm with houses, it is priced at $650,000.

Rich and abundant with fruit, herbs and vegetation, the 9 acre parcel with two hacienda style homes offers 850 cacao trees, 140 guanabana trees, 39 or more different varieties of fruit trees...did you know there are more than 12 different types of bananas? You will be able to eat from 9 of those different varieties! There are also many natural and medicinal plants for you and your family and with some, enough to market and share.

This property can be owned and managed in a way that would appeal to many people depending on your needs. Raise a family in a traditional hobby farm setting, in a holistic and creative way, with many recreational activities. Retire and run your own chocolate business from tree to bar. Make it a BnB, retreat or spiritual healing center. The options are unlimited.

The farm can grow over 1000+ kg of cacao beans per year with the potential to produce value added specialty chocolate products from single origin, estate grown cacao.

The business component included in your purchase is all of the processing equipment; Drying tables, Fermentation containers, Grinder, Melanger, Granite table for tempering, molds and packaging. The business is active and licensed by the ministry of health, and certified organic with Kiwa and is now biodynamic certification ready.

The farm workers have all been trained in biodynamic principles for future applications. Enhance your product line with currently growing turmeric, ginger, coconuts, passionflower, acerola cherries, hibiscus flowers, guanabana, mango, cinnamon, guayaba, tulsi, starfruit, medicinal tea ingredients, organic herbs and spices and so much more…the rainforest is full of so much food and medicine!

Being in the biological corridor of the Cangrejo Valley brings the most diverse wildlife species of birds (Scarlett Macaws, Parrots, Toucans, hummingbirds, many songbirds), Monotiti monkeys, Capuchin monkeys, large blue Morpho butterflies, to name just a few. This is what defines “A Sanctuary in Nature”...not just a parcel of land. You will not need an alarm clock here, as nature will inform you of the time of day. The birds are abundant throughout the property and become an orchestra of sound indicating approximately what time of day it is whether it is the Scarlet Macaws singing their way to and from the ocean, the Oropendulas, spinning upside down in their nests or the Kiskadee’s taking their afternoon shower while singing in the swimming pool.
