Our 86-Acre Nature Reserve
The Rio Rosario is one of the Nicoya Peninsula’s prime wildlife corridors. It supports over two hundred species of birds and many monkeys. Our 86-acre private nature reserve covers the heart of the lower basin and is entirely within our Finca Los Suenos boundaries.
Our nature reserve is blessed with magnificent trees - many 10’ in diameter or more - that have created a cathedral-like canopy over the river so make it is always comfortable for swimming and hiking.
Markus Schliessler, the original developer of Los Suenos always had the vision of protecting the Rio Rosario valley and donated the land to our community.
In 2014 our nature reserve's boundaries were accepted by Costa Rica's National Registry. The FLSOA now controls the nature reserve for the enjoyment of all lot owners. The ownership shares have been placed in a trust, with the five member FLSOA board managing the trust.
Our nature reserve represents a Costa Rican milestone. It is one of the first commonly-owned Costa Rica properties to be protected in perpetuity in a trust. It's now for the benefit of all our lot owners, with a parking area by the Rio Rosario bridge and a walking trail along the river. We are fortunate it will always be there to add to the Finca Los Suenos experience.
