One Acre Playa Zancudo Beach Home

Costa Rica, Puntarenas Province, Playa Zancudo, Costa Rica
  • $180,000


This property is located in conveniently located in the middle of the peninsula. It is set back off the road ‘in the forest’. You’d never realize there was a home back here. There are plenty of old growth trees surrounding the property. All of the wildlife come to visit including sloths and the 3 species of monkeys.

Two Lots

There are two lots side by side. These lots are beautiful, and hold a lot of value in size of property. Both lots are with 30-meter (97’) of road frontage. There are two survey’s and two corporations included in the sale, for a total size of slightly more than 1 acre.

Large Two-Story Home

One of the lots has the large two-story home with a concrete slab/cement block first floor, and the second or top floor is tastefully built with wooden framed walls sheathed in cement (fiber) board walls, a common lightweight construction here in the tropics, the front was designed to totally open so you’d have jungle views all around.

Time For a New Owner

A great addition would be a front deck. This can be a very nice home once you inject new ideas and make some needed repairs. The master bedroom is situated behind the living area only dividing w/a curtain, the long second bedroom can be closed as well and make two bedrooms from this ‘long’ bedroom, there are two doors just for this purpose.

The first floor has a large storage area, laundry room, a guest room, bathroom and a second both rooms need work, but you’ll have a couple of rental rooms or 5 bedrooms in total if you want.

The house has been a good rental property, they built the home about 20 years ago, are not living nearby and have decided it was time to let others enjoy time on the beach.

It’s nice to have a property ‘on the beach’ set back far enough to have privacy and forest surrounding yet only 200 meters to the beach. Surf can be heard! Welcome to the beach!

Beach Break Surf

This area is a hidden secret. Directly in front of this lot is excellent sandbar beach break. With peelers going left and right you will be greatly surprised on how good it gets with nobody out!

Close to Amenities and Activities

Close to a great restaurant and miles of empty beach in front of you. Step out of your yard and you have so many options for nature walks, kayaking, fishing, surfing, stand up paddle board (SUP), shell / driftwood collecting and so much more. This area is quickly gaining value as there are not too many places in the world where you can own beachfront property for so little. Enjoy serenity in paradise!

About the Area

The sandy beach of Playa Zancudo calls your name. It is lined by coconut palms and almond trees forming the idyllic setting for this special place. Located along the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica in the Golfo Dulce, Playa Zancudo is a beautiful and untouched area that sees significantly fewer tourists than other parts of the country. The atmosphere here is laid-back, and a variety of activities ensures that visitors will be occupied as much (or as little) as they’d like to be.

Playa Zancudo is also surrounded by diverse wildlife with the lush rainforest nearby. Wildlife is rich, abundant and diverse. The deep jungle meets the coast with an incredible lush tropical landscape. Wildlife abounds with a variety of monkeys including howlers and white-faced, toucans, macaws, sloths and so much more. With the Gulfo Dulce on one side and the Sabalo River on the other, Zancudo is a water lover’s dream. See more about Playa Zancudo by visiting our blog; The Zancudo Lifestyle.


World Class Sportfishing

There is also fantastic big game sport fishing here where tourist and locals do battle against all kids of fish including giant Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Marlin, Grouper, Pargo and more.


World Class Surfing

This area is known to have one of the longest lefthand point breaks in the world; Pavones! What many people don’t know is there a second world class lefthand point break even closer to the property along with Playa Zancudo’s very own, super fun beach break. This beach break can be quite good when the points are not breaking.
