Since 1997, Rancho Cartagena has provided a stable, well-seasoned Real Estate property development consisting of 586 acres of mountains, woods and meadows, all offering striking views of the surrounding countryside. A constant effort throughout the history of the development has focused on maintaining the natural balance of nature to the ultimate in country living. The goal has always been to provide a relaxed living style without restricting individual ideas and freedom of the homeowners. The owner, Jim Farris, along with his team at Rancho Cartagena, will give you personal attention as you move through the process of purchasing, building and ultimately living here at the Ranch. Their experience in business, real estate development, marketing and finance – combined with maintaining a strong business ethic – will help you through every stage of owning and building a home here in Costa Rica.


Current homeowners enjoy two ranges of rolling hills, rivers, abundant wildlife and miles of private roads and horse trails. More than 40 acres have been set aside for common areas that extend throughout the project and connect the individual ranch home sites.

The ranch is in the most desirable area of Costa Rica, the Northwestern Pacific Coast providence of Guanacaste, between Tamarindo and Playa Flamingo. We have remaining lots of 1.25 to 2.7 acres and several 12 acre parcels with prices ranging from $50K to $75K for the lots and up to $250K for the parcels. Part of the 586 acres includes 2 other Fincas/tracts of land, each listed separately from the residential portion of the ranch. The price of each lot varies and depends on many factors including view, location on the ranch and size of the property. All sites include water, cable, electrical, a gated entrance and well maintained groomed roads.

We are within 30 minutes of 7 of the most perfect beaches in the world, 5 miles from modern hotels, shopping and many fine ocean view restaurants and night spots. 45 minutes by car from the International Airport in Liberia.


Step outside your front door and enjoy many recreational opportunities including world-class deep sea fishing, two 18-hole golf courses, surfing, horseback riding, kayaking, hiking, many local events and much more. Your new home site will be located just off the main road on the way to the airport from all the beach towns and across from Finca Casagua Equestrian Center and next to conservatory center for wildlife, The Monkey Park.
