Location: Canas, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
This Hacienda is located in the Interamerican highway in the Guanacaste province, the fastest growing tourist region in Costa Rica. It is only 45 minutes from Liberia International Airport and 2 1/2 hours from Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose. As a first alternative, the various real estate properties that compose HLP are for sale as a whole (6,550 acres). Additionally, the Hacienda can be divided into 4 parts, and each part can be sold separately Today, it is focused mainly on tilapia farming, cattle ranching, conventional rice and certified organic rice. However, because of its strategic location and characteristics, its true potential is for real estate development (for second homes) and for large scale ecotourism projects such as lodging, hiking, climbing, horse-back riding, canopying-zip lines, aerial tram, flora/fauna/bird watching, volcano visiting, hanging bridges, bungee jumping, water rafting, fishing, etc. Also, because of its proximity to the Guanacaste, Nicoya and Central Pacific coasts, it can also cater to visitors interested in day-trips to the beach for sun and swimming. Due to its location/climate/topography/water availability, the property is ideally suited for developing a golf course and country club, artificial lakes, a wild life zoo/safari and a hydroelectric project capable of providing power to the entire hacienda (the pre-feasibility study is available). The Hacienda is divided into seven productive areas, six of which are primarily used for agricultural and forestry activities and one that is used as an ecotourism hotel and convention center. This lodging facility is close to some of the most famous and visited national parks, ecological reserves, volcanoes and other tourist sites such as Palo Verde, Rio Celeste, Rincon de la Vieja and Santa Rosa Nationals Parks. Also to Arenal Volcano and Lake, Lake Cote, Lomas de Barbudal Reserve, Puntarenas Port and City and Caño Negro Wet Lands. La Pacifica is ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001 certified for all of its operations and has an integrated waste management system.
