To develop Costa Rica real estate in a way that is beneficial to the environment, the wildlife and the local people.  

 Finca Las Brisas ecological nature community

 

A select offering of Costa Rica property for sale is available by Finca Las Brisas. The Costa Rica property (individual lots) listed on this page are 5,000 square meters (1.25 acres minimum, some slightly larger) and are available at the prices listed below (prices subject to change at the discretion of FLB).

 

Currently the membership of Finca Las Brisas is comprised of family, friends and other people who share a common interest in developing a nature-based green community that makes a positive contribution to surrounding local residents and the environment. We have no guiding social, political, or spiritual philosophy driving the development of the community, other than the desire to do it the right way. To develop Costa Rica real estate in a way that is beneficial to the environment, the wildlife and the local people.

 

Finca Las Brisas could well fit under the umbrella of the cohousing movement with a serious emphasis on the environment which could certainly move us closer to the ecovillage concept except that we have no spiritual dimension and no intent to have an active part or identify with a social movement. We are not making any attempt to encourage or discourage any spiritual belief system or pursuit other than a genuine respect for the environment and culture. A respect, we hope, that will guide the ecological design, all ecological building practices and land use including organic gardens, responsible husbandry and reforestation.

 

We think the term EcoCommunity best describes us. We are a small development with 26 lots. We are striving to be genuine, we work with the locals, part of the finances are budgeted for the local community and we work hard to employ the people in the immediate area. We have shared environmentally sensitive and protected areas that we all maintain. We are starting a reforestation project to strengthen the fragile and disappearing dry forests. We are protecting the watershed for all of the people that live down river. We are building a place for people who care more about an authentic experience with the local people, culture and nature than they do about flat screen TVs, profit/cost ratios, security lights, quads, privacy, or air conditioning.

In addition, we envision a protected reserve-like property with a system of well maintained trails that can be enjoyed by our families and friends for generations.
