Ricovida Rio Grande was envisioned an exclusive, self-contained 300+ acre community in the near-perfect, year-round climate of the Costa Rican Central Valley. The Project site now contains 250 acres following the sale of 50 acres to the Chucas dam project. With this change the site now overlooks a lake with access to the property over a new well constructed road and 2 lane bridge, making it an excellent property for investment and development.  And more good news, as the property is only 2 kilometers from the new on/off expressway ramp at Balsa, via  the new Caldera expressway. The site location is especially well situated with routine shopping only 6 kilometers in Atenas, 22 km to the full shopping experience at Multiplaza in Escazu, and only 16 km to the recently announced international airport at Orotina.


Now in addition to single unit luxurious guest houses and other amenities such as a spa, Ricovida will offer a state-of-the-art fitness center, 24-hour health clinic, shopping on site and recreational opportunities that will include horseback riding, tennis courts, swimming pools, hiking trails and maybe even even pickle-ball courts, our site plan includes 6 six story condominium apartment buildings. This adds even greater flexibility to your living needs..

Ricovida will be surrounded by luscious landscaping and scenic views, with the new Rio Grande Lago providing a beautiful, flowing backdrop.

All Ricovida development and construction strategy is intended to adhere to strict “green” principles. Sustainable building techniques and guidelines will assure its status as one of the world’s most environmentally friendly communities and very consistent to Costa Rica philosophies and culture.

An on-site waste-water treatment facility will also be built. The two and three bedroom villas (available with casita (guest house)) will feature distinctive architecture and interiors with the latest electronic technologies. All facilities and villas will embrace an attractive universal design, which will allow easy access for all of our residents.

Ricovida will bring together a strong sense of community, sustainability, health care and educational opportunities. More reasons why Ricovida is indeed the Rich Life.
