Ever dream of owning a profitable eco-lodge in the jungle? Now imagine living in the pristine Southern Zone of Costa Rica, in a quiet ecological community about 8 minutes off the highway and less than 5 minutes south of Ojochal. This property may be a big chunk of cash upfront for some, but once we show you the numbers, it won’t be long before you do the math and count how quickly this dream business will pay for itself!
Live in the owners apartment upstairs while you manage the nine Safari Tent bungalow cabins and 3 guest rooms located across a 1.22 acre property. All nine eco-cabins are positioned on wooden platforms with steel supports, each with its own terrace, and furnished for comfort while taking in the jungle setting. The guest “cabins” are actually very roomy, stable and durable tents. Guests find them to be very comfortable, and every tent-cabin includes its own private full bathroom and hot water. Four of the nine tents have King-sized beds and five tents have a combination of a Queen-sized bed and a single bed.
The main lodge has 3 large, conventional guest rooms, two of which share a bath (designed for a small family) and 1 room has a private bathroom. Attached to the lower level is an open-air restaurant plus lounging area. Upstairs, you will find a private three bedroom and two bathroom apartment in which the current owners have enjoyed living for many years.
The property is equipped with 60% solar power, greatly reducing the electric bills. The current system can be expanded to 100% solar, with the investment of the future owner, however the property gets good sun throughout the day and a 100% solar system can become an efficient investment.
A river borders the property with natural pools and waterfalls, and the property is directly “next door” to one of the most of the most iconic waterfalls in the region, Cascada El Pavon. The present business has been very successful over a number of years, turning a profit of an average of $90k per year. This can be a perfect property for the entrepreneur who wants to enjoy living life in a tranquil lodge atmosphere, earning a good sustainable income and meeting people from all over the world, sharing in the many wonderful experiences that come with hosting visitors to Costa Rica. The present owners have attracted many repeat groups and their occupancy rates for the high season are 70%. For obvious reasons the numbers above do not include 2020.
