If you are tired of fighting endless traffic jams and unfriendly people where you live now, we believe you will appreciate our typical Friday afternoon traffic.

We offer easy access from the highway and most of our lots don’t require a 4×4 vehicle to access – something that is rare in Costa Rica’s southern zone.

San Buenaventura has two churches and two grade schools. The Catholic church and one of the grade schools is within walking distance of Las Villas de San Buenas.

The Osa region and Corcovado National Park of Costa Rica is considered by National Geographic as one of the “most biologically intense” place on Earth, and after spending some time here you’ll understand why.
