Hills of San Francisco

Hills of San Francisco

We’ve been planting hundreds of cocoa trees last couple of weeks here in San Francisco de Penas Blancas, in the rain, lightning flashing and thunder crashing this morning, and the cocoa loves rain.  All from one 40 year old tree, we started 3 years ago.  We’re also planting corn, heirloom organic beans, squash and pumpkin on our sister farm the Ponderoso, growing all our own.

1000 square meter lots available, buy now in case your pension disappears in a few years in the next, certain financial crash.  Email me @ curtullman@yahoo.com for details.  Pura Vida.

Here’s a good view of our farm above and to the east of the residences in a somewhat wild state.  To the right is a forest that descends down to the Burrito River, witth maybe 400 meters of riverfront, and as you can see,on the left to the road there’s ample room for farm or gardening projects, such as our cocoa tree farm, the planting of 6000 trees to commence in a few weeks.

IMG_7054Summer has finally arrived a month late, but it sure is beautiful now up here at the Hills of SF, above the pueblo, below the rainforest.  We have almost 6000 cocoa tree seedlings we’re going to plant on our cooperative permaculture farm across the street from our homes.  When you retire here, you now have a typical Tico farm to wander around on, walk or drive a quad down to the wild Rio Burrito, swim in the local swimming hole with the local folks and kids, or walk through the forest along the river.  And eat the greatest food in the world (dark chocolate) from our chocolate business (in a few years).

Come visit us here at the La Fortuna Hotel in La Fortuna, and check out Hills of San Francisco at cacaogecko.com.

Thinking about moving to Costa Rica?  You can’t find a more amazingly beautiful location than our brand new development here in the hills above the little pueblo of San Francisco de las Penas Blancas, 2 kilometers below the rainforest of Arenal National Park.  Surrounded by small farms, we are the only housing project in the area, featuring spectacular views of the North Valley and forested mountains, only 5 minutes walk away from the wild Burrito River, you owe it to yourself to check us out if you are traveling to Costa Rica.

Right now we are in the first phase of the project and can only build on the five lots adjacent to the public road, and two houses (yellow squares).  950-1000 square meter lots are available at $40,000 ($40/sq meter), and the houses are priced at $145,000.

For more information, please email curtullman@yahoo.com, or go to the Hotel La Fortuna website to see a video of the houses.  Also see caca0gecko.wordpress.com for pictures of the area.
