Price: $680,000 USD. Owner will consider 50% financing with qualified buyer.


Tambor Farm is located in Costa Rica’s Blue Zone of Tambor on the Nicoya Peninsula – an area where people live longer and healthier lives.  It is a slower paced lifestyle, with clean air, high quality water, warm weather and astonishing nature. All of this richness and diversity is what drew the owners to this land more than 28 years ago….and since then they have labored lovingly to enhance and create a special piece of paradise.

Back in the 90’s, this property was part of a large cattle ranch. The new owner got right to work developing a well-drained road to the center of the property where the houses were built and the work began to improving the soil; Because of this sweat, love, and effort the farm became the paradise it is today.  It offers gardens with enriched soil, irrigation systems, established fruit and hardwood trees.  Additionally, the farm includes a workshop and garage and there is a large storage shed of tropical hardwoods.

In the Nicoya Peninsula, there are two well defined seasons: the dry season, also called the high season, from November to April, and the rainy, or green, season from May to October.  Tambor Farm has an irrigation system that keeps the property green throughout the dry season, as well as a pond.  The pond serves both as an important attraction for birds and wildlife, and to keep the surroundings lush.

There are two houses in the farm: the main house and the guest house.  Both houses are fully equipped with appliances and furniture.  Construction was completed in 2004 and is comprised of 350 m2 or 3,766 ft2 inclusive of all living space.  Read further for details…
