This Botanical Wildlife Sanctuary is now available for sale! Are you dreaming of dipping your toes in crystal-clear Caribbean water, snorkeling right in front of your property, exploring the coral reefs, or surfing the most amazing waves with nobody in sight? This is your place, an actual pristine paradise!
This property is located on the windward side of Bastimentos island in the area called Playa Pelicano. It is only boat accessible. No roads, stores, no cars. During low seas it can be accessed by taking the windward side of Bastimentos which should take about 30 minutes. During high seas the land can be accessed from the east side of Bastimentos by going through protected waters in between the islands. This trip can take approximately 1 hour from Bocas Town. So, this property is for the nature lover not the disco bar lover!
The land is titled (rare and costly for the area) and has a great layout stretching about 1,500 feet from the east beachfront border to the west. It goes about 600 feet deep into the jungle. This area boasts miles of sandy beaches with pure jungle setting in the backdrop including the National Marine Park, in walking distance. There is no light or sound pollution in this area...it is completely off-grid and you will have hardly any neighbors around you. Your neighbors will be monkeys, sloths, parrots, turtles, and other jungle and sea wildlife. When standing on the sandy beach you can enjoy a stunning view of the charming set of islands (Los Pelicanos Islands) full of pelicans relaxing in the crowns of all the trees. Or you can take advantage of an amazing surf break right there in front. Snorkel for hours in the endless and bountiful coral. As you walk through the jungle, in the back, you will find 3 freshwater creeks that provide a never-ending source of water for this property, so you do not need to rely on collecting rainwater. During the turtle season you can look forward to turtle nesting on your property and be part of the hawksbill and leatherback turtle recovery. This location is also optimal for scarlet macaw recovery, a species which is also nearly extinct in Panama. As a new owner, you can entertain the idea of showcasing the property as a wildlife reserve!
There is an existing structure on the property that is a 19 ft x 28 ft two-story bodega, framed with treated pine. The downstairs is a concrete slab with wood shutter windows and large doors at each end. It could be utilized to store materials and tools while in the process of building a home. The second level could be later turned into a rental casita to generate some income while living in paradise. There are several buildable sites on the land that could be chosen for the main house location. There is pressurized water from a spring up on the hill with a 600 ft buried pipe. The owners have extensively planted the property with hardwood trees, fruit trees, and tropical flowers including lime, orange, grapefruit, dragon fruit, papaya, mango, avocado, yang yang, almendro, nispero, plummeria.
This is a one-of-a-kind property that would be perfect for a nature lover who is looking for a secluded area! Everyone who visits falls in love with it!
