    Property Description

    Large Beachfront Property Perfect for Tourism, Residential  or Commercial Development. Least Expensive Price Per Acre On The Emerald Coast.

    From sandy beach to gently sloping forest with superb ocean views, this property is ideal for large or small development. Just over an hour and a half from Managua’s international airport, the parcel is conveniently situated on the coastal highway at the Northern end of Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast.

    Matapalo is closer to Managua and Granada and the attractions of the Rio Escalante Chacocente Wildlife Refuge than the resorts of Tola and San Juan del Sur. Perfectly positioned to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Chacocente Wildlife Refuge and the amenities of Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast, this stunning property can be reached either from Casares to the North, Santa Teresa to the East or El Astillero to the South.

    This beautiful 776 acre property with its 1,267 meters of coastline sits on a beautiful, wide and 8 km (5 mile) long beach with multiple surf breaks, swimming spots and a river estuary, making it a superb location for a mixed-use Resort or Residential development attracting a variety of clients. Surfers, families, adventure enthusiasts, nature lovers, and those who seek unique and tranquil spots around the globe will all be attracted to this location.

    Sloping gently upwards from the ocean, Matapalo has excellent ocean views from most of the property while also being easily and economically developable. There is a natural spring on the property, as well as a well and two small rivers making this one of the region’s most attractive investments. Wildlife abounds, and the location is home to many of Nicaragua’s native flora and fauna species.

    Just 15 minutes to the south is the Rio Escalante-Chacocente Wildlife Refuge with one of the world’s most significant sea turtle nesting sites. Tens of thousands of endangered sea turtles nest and over a million babies hatch each year. Troops of howler monkeys wander through the canopy, and stately trees have grown undisturbed for hundreds of years.

    While in close proximity to the Refuge, Matapalo sits well outside its boundaries, allowing for real estate development, hospitality, farming and other activities. The property’s owners are open to subdividing the property if less land is desired, with individual parcels starting at 100 acres.

    The property is large enough to accommodate one or more hotels, commercial areas, and hundreds of homes and condos. It sits adjacent to a site currently designated for one of this area’s most significant master planned communities, designed to promote the area as a tourism destination. It is this development group who currently own the Matapalo property.

    The group has spent the last fifteen years amassing properties on this segment of the Coast, and they’ve done their homework. They know who their neighbors are. They know the local community, and they know what is needed in the area to attract an international clientele. They keep their fingers on the pulse of the government’s plan to execute infrastructure in the area, and they will share their knowledge and experience with the buyers of the Matapalo property.

    Topography on the site is varied and entirely suitable for development. The majority of the property slopes gently upward from the ocean to an approximate height of 160 feet, interspersed with a variety of larger flat areas. The large amount of buildable terrain allows for easy development and prime sites with ocean views.

    Approximately 250 acres, one third the property, offers high elevations with slightly more rugged terrain and magnificent sweeping views of the coastline. A previously farmed area of approximately 80 acres at the back of the property is an ideal spot for orchards, organic farming, or other agricultural uses.

    This property offers the best of the Emerald Coast at the best price.  For more information, contact us today.
