Description This 202 hectares property was acquired in 1980 and belongs to the same owners since then. Since it was bought and being a property of primary forest the owners have been maintaining the forest untouched, this forest area covers approximately 98%of the whole property. The idea has been to protect the flora and fauna belonging to this zone and to give a natural refuge to all the species that have been displaced from their habitats as a result of the human actions.
Back in 1980 the zone where this property is located was covered by forests, however, after years of deforestation done by lumber companies; today El Zota farm is one of the few properties in the area that remains with a primary forest without any interruption by human hand or any kind of deforestation. Here you can find trees that are over 100 year old.
No doubt this is a sanctuary for birds, mammalians, snakes and many more animals; that the owners have been trying to keep and protect as long as possible.
Starting in 1997 until today, El Zota farm has been on a protection privet contract for payment of environmental services by Fonafifo which is signed between the owner and Fonafifo. The purpose of this contract is to have the necessary resources for the maintenance of the property.
It’s located about 10km from the Barra del Colorado National Wildlife Refuge, and 126km from San Jose, taking the Braulio Carrillo National Park road.
Away from the noise, pollution and stress of the big cities; here you can find the relaxing feeling that only the direct connection with the nature can bring.
The wildlife and views are almost the same of what you can find in the Barra de Colorado National Wildlife Refuge; so below is a clear explanation of what you can find in this area.
