Property description

Paisajes Del Mar is located at Playa Tortuga, on the Southern Part of Costa Rica on the Pacific side. It sits on a bluff between the coastal road and the beach. The altitude provides spectacular views of the coastline all the way to Panama, with equal views of the Tortuga river mouth below. Very private, this new comfortable 2 story house and nearby cottage which can be rented together or separately (prices shown are for house only) will allow you to experience nature and wildlife close up. Snorkeling, diving, fishing, surfing are some of the activities all close by, along with many restaurants in the immediate area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We bought the land in the early 90's and built the house in 2002.

Why the Owner Chose Ojochal, Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
We fell in love with the area, its unique wildness, the nature, animals and views.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are one of the few properties that is on the ocean side of the main road. Most house's are on the opposite side and have long drives up the hills which make long trips to the restaurants and different activities. The house is gated and very private with your own exclusive lookout on the pacific and river.
