This is a turnkey hotel/business. The building and land is included in the purchase with all taxes and insurance up to date. Purchasing the business and land is a simple process of buying the corporate S.A. which is much like an . structure in the United States.
The main lodge and 6 cabins were constructed in 2009 from quality concrete, stone and hardwoods. There is opportunity to expand the lodge to include larger restaurant and more rooms. This is important as there is no land for sale or new construction approved in this area! Each room has complete privacy with stunning views of the Central Valley. There is a large inventory of equipment that is included in the sale so this will be a turnkey ready opportunity. The hotel property alone is valued over $200,000 giving the buyer the necessary requirements to gain residency in Costa Rica and the daily income will help paying for your living expense and the Return on your Investment!
We will offer training for booking sites, introduction to the local municipal offices, banking system and tour of local area for supplies.
