Property description

You need more than a getaway. You need a place to refresh your soul. A place conducive not only to rest and relaxation but an environment that tempts your sense of adventure and enables you to participate in all that is good and exciting about Costa Rica. The Rancho is nestled 4000 feet above sea level with views of the Pacific and the entire Central Valley. For a unique experience, get up at 5:30 a.m. and watch your own volcano (Volcan Turrialba) smoldering into the skyline as the sunrise pierces through onto your perch above the universe. Toucans are your only visitors as they call to one another while you enjoy the calm of a hammock and possibly a cup of the world’s finest coffee to keep you company. The temperate climate at this elevation never exceeds 85 F and only stoops to 65 F in the middle of the night. All the while you enjoy clean air and fresh water from the neighboring mountain spring; pure and simple. Just an hour West and you’re on the beach.

Puriscal also enjoys being home to two major cigar manufacturers who produce world famous cigars. 'Tobaccos de la Cordillera' One even grows their own tobacco (from Cuban seeds) right on their property just outside of Puriscal. Great to visit, tour and possibly purchase phenomenal cigars at incredibly affordable prices.

 

Owner info

About the owner: The quest for tranquility is one we all strive for. Having devoted 25 years running my own business and yet another 10 working for a Fortune 500 company, I opted for early retirement to continue my search. My previous life afforded me the opportunity to travel the world; China, Russia, the Baltic, Europe, Africa, South Africa, Australia, Greece and Portugal to name a few. Each time I visited a foreign country I tried to picture myself retiring in its midst with its specific climate, traditions and way of life. Portugal was on the verge of getting the nod until I discovered healthcare and taxes on foreigners were not conducive to my parameters I had established for myself. My first visit to Costa Rica was perpetrated by a business associate who indicated his parents had retired here several years prior. He arranged for my visit to see them and the rest is history. It is here that I find the tranquility that I’ve never lost nor ever will. It is here that I found a mountaintop that can now be shared for others to enjoy the views of the Pacific, and the Central Valley. It is here at Cima Estelar (Stellar Heights) that one can find a glimpse into the secrecy of nature; Toucans, parrots, sloths, iguana, giant woodpeckers and flora comparable to the Garden of Eden.

Why the Owner Chose Santiago de Puriscal:
1 hour from the Airport & 1 hour from the Beach. An authentic Costa Rica experience.
