Hot Springs Estates is part of an amazing parcel of more
than 2000 acres of privately owned rainforest
reserve located high above the Pacific Coast towns of
Quepos and Manuel Antonio. About a 30 minute drive from
Quepos, situated in the Fila Chonta Mountain Range, QHSE
forms part of the Quepos Biological Corridor. This is
to 60% of all the
flora and fauna species found in Costa Rica, many of which
are under threat
or endangered. This property’s
combination of great natural beauty, untouched woodlands,
biodiversity, and nearby towns and amenities
The four phases of development planned
for this property will involve less than seven percent
of the total parcel. The remaining 93% will be
as natural greenspace - leaving more than 1,800 acres of
rainforest as your backyard! View the Available
Lots page for
details on this four phase project.
the available lots are in an area with easy access—we've
installed the appropriate drainage areas, bridges, and
system—much of the property is still only accessible
by horseback. Fortunately, we have a veritable herd of
horses and experienced local guides available for exploration.
Here you’ll discover a spectacular array of natural
beauty—rolling hills with tall grasses at the base,
steep mountains flowing with a series of impressive
waterfalls, the river
Canas surging with irresistible cascades, and natural mineral
water hot springs bubbling up from deep down in the
to the earth’s surface.
The property is home to an astounding array of indigenous wildlife. You’ll
encounter the screaming howler monkeys and the smaller and more passive white
face monkey. It is not uncommon to spot toucans and wild macaws, as well as
flocks of numerous other bird species. Other indigenous animals you may spot
include the majestic jaguar, sloths, cotamondie, crocodile, and wild boar.
you explore the remainder of this parcel of land, you will
see numerous waterfalls before you begin to smell the sulpher
from the 120° F hot springs. The location of the hot
springs was privy only to the indigenous tribes for centuries,
just a few years ago when we discovered these magical waters.
Not only are these waters extremely relaxing but the Central
American Indians have known about the healing qualities of
these mud baths and mineral springs for generations.
the next months, we will create great pools of hot mineral
water surrounded by the rain forest, making this place unique
in the whole area.
the available lots, at the edge of the River Canas, sits
the Quepos Hot Springs Lodge on
more than 10,000 square meters (approx. 2 1/2 acres). Built
as our home-away-from-home for exploring
this amazing property, this jungle lodge offers eight bedrooms,
each with its own private bath and shower, and a restaurant
Surrounded by exotic plants, nice gardens, and the sounds
of pure water running through the rocks of the nearby river,
guests can fish in the river, swim, or explore its waterfalls.
The lighting for the lodge is powered by solar panels and
a clever "hydro plant" that uses the constant water
supply from the mountains.
