About Marenal


Finca Marenal’s 55 acres of forest, pasture, and farmland slope gently towards Lake Arenal. A valley divides the property into roadside and interior sections, making it suitable as a farm, as well as for residential and commercial development.


This versatile property, with views of Lake Arenal and the Arenal and Tenorio Volcanos, is conveniently located just an hour and a half drive from the Liberia Airport and a two-hour drive from the beaches of Guanacaste.

Marenal is centrally situated on the northern shore of the lake, overlooking the town of Nuevo Arenal. It is a part of Barrio San Antonio, just two kilometers from Nuevo Arenal on National Road 143, the main road to San Rafael de Guatuso. Our location is approximately 100 meters (330 ft) above the lake.

In this evergreen area, our temperatures rarely fall at night below 19 degrees Celsius (66 F) or exceed 29 C (83 F) during the day. We have moderate rainfall year-round and sometimes experience heavier precipitation during our rainy season: but we don't have extended dry spells with high heat and dusty conditions, like the coastal regions. 


At Marenal you will enjoy comfortable living conditions all year round.

Currently for sale are lots R-6, R-7, R-8, R-9, and R-10. Each lot owner will also own 20% (1/5th) of the lake and access road. Each lot will have access to electric and water service, and high-speed internet. Lot owners will have a priority option to membership in Finca Marenal.


Our gated community will be protected by electronic means and the watchful eye of our residents. The lots are deliberately of reasonable size, allowing our houses to be far enough apart for privacy and close enough for that added security.

The Residences in this evergreen tropical setting will be surrounded by flowers and fruit-bearing trees. Shopping, dining, and schools are only minutes by car. We offer 2-, 3-, and 4- bedroom residences, which are designed to be fully energy independent. 


Home prices for the two bedroom home begin at $150,000  depending on design options.

Our farm, Finca Marenal provides all types of activities for a healthy lifestyle. There will be an abundance of fresh produce, flowers, medicinal herbs, and much more. The farm will nourish our residents and sell its excess products directly to the community and at farmer's markets. ​

Our farming community will have great opportunities for social interaction and activities. Our interests shall hopefully extend to educational endeavors and research of the natural world. Physical and mental health are important objectives of our community.

As you may imagine, a newcomer to the country has many questions and concerns. Just finding your way around in a new country and its unfamiliar environment, especially if one does not speak the language, can be a daunting task. 


We are here to help you in setting up banking relations, recommending architects and contractors, assist you in getting construction permits and becoming familiar with local laws and customs, or obtaining Costa Rican residency. In short, we make it easy for you to integrate into the country and the local community.
