Costa Rica Jaguar Corridor Conservation Properties

The Last Eden
Gates of Corcovado
348 acres / 141 hectares

This phenomenal property is undoubtedly one of the most iconic pieces of real estate in Costa Rica. Straddling both sides of the Carate River, it encompasses over 300 acres of pristine primary rainforest. It also boasts 2 kilometers of beachfront, its own airport, and one of the highest levels of biodiversity on Earth.

Conservation Potential

Due to its strategic location at the gateway to Corcovado National Park, this property is one of the keys to conserving the priceless forests of the Osa peninsula.

National Geographic has described the Osa as “one of the most biologically intense places on Earth.” It hosts more than 50% of Costa Rica’s plant and animal species, living on only 3% of its land area. 2.5% of Earth’s lifeforms are found here, on less than a thousandth of a percent of our planet’s surface area.

It is hard to overestimate the importance of this property for conservation, not only at a local but also at a global level. In every niche of the Eco-system, there is a rarity in abundance, from tapirs and jaguars to monkeys and macaws. This Last Eden Rainforest represents Mother Nature’s final stronghold in Central America, and as such, it must be protected and preserved.

The property is the perfect place to undertake biological research and investigation of any kind, offering unique access and insights into almost every branch of environmental science. From the camera-trapping of felines to the monitoring of turtle hatchings on the beach, The Last Eden has it all.

Eco-Tourism Potential

The property’s unique location at the entrance to the world-famous Corcovado National Park gives it an outstanding potential as a platform for first-class sustainable tourism adventures.

Its over 300 acres of pristine forest are ideally suited for low-impact activities in harmony with the environment, such as jungle walks, wildlife-watching, and horseback riding.

Location In Costa Rica

Carate is located at the far end of the coast road that runs from Puerto Jimenez around the southern tip of the Osa peninsula. Drake’s Bay is 3 hours’ drive away, and it is 4 hours’ drive to the Panama border.

Puerto Jimenez is a 5-hour drive from San Jose, and it is served by multiple daily internal flights from the capital. Carate airport itself is accessible by aircraft up to Cessna’s and Twin Otters in size.

The road from Puerto Jimenez to Carate is currently being improved, and several quality bridges are being built, potentially opening this remote corner of Costa Rica to more visitors.
