In northwest Costa Rica, about 30 miles from the Pacific Coast and Liberia International Airport, this ranch features great access to beaches and recreation, nearly a square mile of beautiful tropical mountains, one mile of frontage and excellent fishing on the crystal-clear Cano Negro River and excellent views of the Rincon de la Vieja, Miravalles and Tenorio Volcanoes, as well as Lake Nicaragua.
In terms of recreation, the Los Gauchos Ranch is excellent for fishing for Tropical Gar, Wolf Fish and Mountain Mullet. Enjoy rafting and kayaking and the beautiful 60-foot waterfall adjoining the ranch. Horseback riding across the rolling hills of the scenic ranch is a must for everyone.
The ranch boasts a mild climate, exotic tropical trees and wildlife and proximity to Rincon de la Vieja National Park to the West; the balance is surrounded by private property. The scenery on the drive to and from the ranch is breathtaking and there are abundant water resources, including 7 natural springs and creeks that flow into the Cano Negro River. Two small dams provide gravity flow to multiple cattle water tanks. Solar power is used for electric fencing throughout this operating ranch.
This ranch makes money annually from a well-managed 250 head feeder steer/bull fattening operation supported on the improved grass covering the ranch. By renting neighboring ranch land, the capacity is easily increased to 350-400 head. There is good access to an improved, graveled public road with infrastructure including worker’s quarters, covered corrals, and sheds.
Professional American management is available if you choose not to not to run the place yourself.
