Run a Jungle in the South Pacific of Costa Rica

Do you like Piña Coladas and getting caught in the rain, and the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne? Well…isn’t it about time you packed up those little cocktail umbrellas and hot footed it over to the South Pacific of Costa Rica?

Escape the rat race frustrations and set up a jungle B&B in one of the most beautiful beach and sun vacation destinations in the world, the welcoming coastal community of Uvita.

Have you ever met any holiday home owners from the South Pacific of Costa Rica? If the answers no, it’s probably because they want to keep their paradise lifestyle a secret! There are several savvy Americans who have made a positive life change, so why can’t you?

Let me run through the benefits! First of all you’ve got freedom – you can be your own boss and decide your working hours to suit. But don’t just take my word for it, Simon Medina is originally from New York and has lived in Dominical for over five years. He runs a successful six bedroom B&B in the South Pacific and believes the benefits go far beyond generating an income. “My only regret is I didn’t make the move sooner! I can say that I finally feel happy – running my own business is hard work but I have much more freedom and enjoy a much healthier lifestyle. Besides, who wouldn’t want to wake up to ocean views every morning?”

For those that worry about setting up life a “developing” country have no fear – Costa Rica offers the perfect combination of paradise living with easy access to wide range of amenities. With a low cost of living, low taxes and fantastic health care facilities this is far from a life in the wilderness.

Simon explains that he is happy he got involved with the Costa Rica tourism industry, “It’s an exciting opportunity, tourism in Costa Rica is evolving and it’s great to be part of a profession that allows you to meet so many interesting people from around the world – all of who have a common interest – the beauty of this incredible country.”

Positioned just 10 minutes away from the Marino Ballena National Park a gorgeous 15 bedroom, 15 bathroom eco lodge has just come onto the market. Listed for just $195,000 this is an exciting investment opportunity in the heart of beautiful Uvita – it will not stay on the market for long.

Nestled within the Costa Rican jungle this is an inviting eco lodge made almost completely with high quality local wood. It’s hard to imagine a more fitting tropical escape. Blending in beautifully with its surroundings, this inviting property combines indoor and outdoor living perfectly. An organic garden and therapeutic swimming pool, ocean view yoga deck and relaxing terrace further enhance this residences appeal.

If you want to make a positive change your life, head for jungle – you’ll find that this property offers you so much more than an income generating investment. This is your opportunity to actively participate in Costa Rica’s sustainable tourism drive and live your life to the fullest!
