Development Location

Rancho del Mar is located on the coast of the idyllic Nicoya Peninsula in the Puntarenas region of Costa Rica, between the quiet towns of Tambor and Paquera. The area is home to the most diverse geography in the entire country.

Jutting into the Pacific Ocean, the Nicoya Peninsula offers first-rate, beautiful white sand beaches. The Peninsula’s jagged and mountainous landscape, in effect, isolates many of the region’s small coastal towns, strengthening their unique allure and authenticity. The coastal villages that adorn the rugged coastline perpetuate a compelling laidback attitude, contributing to this region’s appealing tranquil vibe. Rancho del Mar expands across 1,600 undulating acres of premier developable land. Originally once a productive mango farm, Rancho del Mar is currently home to an equestrian ranch. Comprised of two beautiful hillsides with a sprawling valley in between, there are spectacular vistas from anywhere on the property. Additionally, the property has over two miles of gorgeous coast line giving many lots prime ocean views.

Blue Zone Lifestyle


Perhaps one of the most distinguished characteristics of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula is that it is one of the world’s only five Blue Zones. Characterized by residents having the highest life expectancy, the main contributing factors, especially prevalent in this region, are healthy living, overall quality of life and general happiness. Our goal at Rancho del Mar is to emulate and embrace the elements of the Blue Zone for all our residents. With an organic farm, close-knit community, beautiful climate and amenities geared towards overall healthy lifestyle, we will strive to be the model for this standard of living.

Costa Rica is the quintessential eco-adventurer’s paradise. With a vibrant and laid back culture, a richly diverse fauna and flora kingdom and a picturesque landscape of wild jungles, rugged coastlines and magical beaches, Costa Rica ranks at the top as a destination for “pure life”.


Montezuma is a picturesque small village, known for its bohemian atmosphere and the stunning natural beauty of its beaches and waterfalls. Nestled into a landscape of true tropical paradise, Montezuma is perfect for any beach lover and eco-tourist. The village is surrounded by jungle covered hills with small rivers forming scenic waterfalls and pools. Groups of capuchin monkeys live in the forests and are easily seen. Montezuma’s center, with charming old wood houses, itinerant artists and vivid street life has an almost Caribbean flair and feels like the open-air living room of the community. Within easy walking distance are beaches, restaurants and hotels in Montezuma. Lodging options also include many budget places in hostels and cabinas.


Montezuma Falls

The waterfalls are among the most noted features of Montezuma. They actually consist of three cascades, located each on top of the other. The highest and most beautiful one is the lowest waterfall. It tumbles from a height of 24 meters into a large, rocky pool which is great for swimming. This waterfall is reached on a 20-minutes hike from Montezuma’s village center.


Isla Tortuga

Isla Tortuga is famous for its Caribbean-like white sand beach and transparent turquoise water. Just off the beach you’ll find some volcanic rocks excellent for snorkling. This island is located in the gulf of Nicoya, just outside of Paquera.


Cabo Blanco Natural Reserve

Nestled on the extreme southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula is the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, one of the most scenically beautiful areas of Costa Rica. Cabo Blanco holds a special place in the history of Costa Rica. It was the country’s first area that was protected for nature conservation, and the first National Park created in Costa Rica in 1963. The reserve is named after the island Cabo Blanco, located 1.6 km from the reserve’s southern tip. Since the times of the Conquistadores it has been known as the “White Cape” because encrusted guano covers the rocks. Cabo Blanco is an important seabird sanctuary and popular with ornithologists.
