Sitting just a short quad ride North of Playa Hermosa and Santa Teresa lies a quaint, quiet fishing village known as Manzanillo Costa Rica. Save for the annual Sand Castle Festival, Manzanillo rarely receives more than just tourists passing through on quad and stand-up paddleboard tours or staying a day on its practically private beaches. A jungle that is still very much alive with abundant wildlife spills out into reef protected bay perfect for snorkeling, lobstering, and fishing. There are even native clams that can be dug out of these sands between the varying rivers and mangroves that empty into the ocean in this small town. Manzanillo has become the go-to escape for those looking to escape the growing Santa Teresa tourist scene and resign themselves to a quiet life without giving up the beach. With larger lots still available, eco-villages, cattle farms, and permaculture projects dot the area creating an inviting mix of low-key expat and farm country Costa Rican atmosphere, while still being conveniently close to one of the top travel destinations in the world. These properties in Manzanillo Costa Rica are still very reasonably priced and have views that rival those of neighboring Santa Teresa and Mal Pais, so RE/MAX Pura Vida wanted you to be the first ones to know about them!
Located just a 15-minute drive from the center of Santa Teresa this 3,400 square meter lot houses a rancho-style 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom structure. Literal steps from an oft empty beach, the commercially and residentially zoned lot would be perfect for rental cabinas that would turn a steady profit. It comes at a bargain price too, considering its features and proximity to Playa Hermosa. Already equipped with well water and electricity, this ocean view lot, is ready for you to make it your home.
This amazing 1-acre lot rises from the beachfront offering an ocean view from just about anywhere on the property. Perfect for a tranquil vacation home or future vacation rentals, a property this close to the beach in neighboring Playa Hermosa could cost you double. An existing studio house already on the property makes this lot ready to move into so you can settle right in and begin planning expansion on your dreams right away.
Just inside of Playa Manzanillo Costa Rica sits a more than 2-acre lot with breathtaking mountain, valley, and ocean views that stretch the Costa Rican landscape out in all cardinal directions. A 2,000 square meter clearing is primed for construction with a water well already on the property. Fertile soil and elevation mean maximum night sky exposure for stargazing and constant cool breezes in any season for any future projects on this dream site. Whether you’re looking to nestle a vacation home into the jungle or build a rental to wow guests with views this versatile build site will whet the appetite of many, so don’t hesitate to stop into RE/MAX Pura Vida and get a tour.
We’ve saved one of the best for last in this 4,431 square meter beachfront lot. Zoned for low density hotel project and the least building restrictions in all coastal zoning plans you could call this property a diamond in the rough. Bordered on all sides by protected land only to be used for environmental projects whatever future build sits here will be guaranteed privacy and increased wildlife. Plush jungle, just 2km from one of Forbes best beaches in the world, Playa Hermosa, and in close proximity to seasonal rivers this property looks already landscaped to paradise. Private residence or tourism project, you’re going to want to jump on this one before it goes to someone else!
We’re in love with Manzanillo here, at RE/MAX Pura Vida. It has the distinct feeling of being “the next thing” and with the Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, and Playa Hermosa areas growing like they are, it seems only natural that our quaint little Manzanillo grow into its own as well. Take an adventure along the vista-filled coastal road or traverse the rolling hills with pockets of clouds spotting the valleys to get there. You could even take a tour on horseback along the beaches and through the jungle to check out Manzanillo. Whichever way you go, we’re sure you’ll fall in love just like us, and when you do, stop into our RE/MAX Pura Vida offices in Playa Carmen to get a full run down on what’s available in the area.
