 Only eight percent of the total land area will be developed, while the remaining area will be allowed to thrive in its natural state. This commitment to wise stewardship of the natural environment ensures that Costa Verde Estates will flourish as the most beautiful and tropically lush community imaginable.

Costa Verde Estates began as a vision in 2006, when Terry Penland and Alonso Solano first toured the three-kilometer-long Escaleras mountain ridge. They were awed by the unsurpassed ocean views from 1,000-to-two-thousand-feet elevation -- approximately 60 miles of spectacular coastline extending to the tip of the Osa Peninsula. They immediately saw the potential of creating something very special, a residential community of 1,250 acres, with large home site parcels amongst lush rainforest.



Penland and his partner Dan Aalfs have more than 25 years of development experience in the Southern Pacific Zone of Costa Rica, including in the communities of Tres Rios, San Buenaventura, Ojochal and Dominical.



Penland, Aalfs and Solano have earned a reputation for creating high-quality and environmentally sound residential communities. They live in the communities they have created. They share a love for the flora and fauna found in the area and are dedicated to reforestation, erosion control and educating the community members to be good stewards of the land. Today, the Costa Verde Estates development team is led by Penland and Solano, who continue the commitment to nature and to you.



They can assist the members of the community with the selection of builders, architects, landscapers, attorneys and other services. They are here to help make you at home in this tropical paradise that is destined to become your favorite place on Earth.


The mission of Costa Verde Estate's development team is to create the most elegant and ecologically sound private community possible. More than 15,000 trees, all native to Costa Rica, have been planted to extend biological corridors and encourage healthy flora and fauna.
