The ranch posesses high-speed internet, abundant water resources, own power transformer, and 10 hectares (aprox. 25 acres) of fully fenced and devided pasture land. Additional 15 hectares (aprox. 40 acres) of grazing land can be used freely or rented cheaply from the neighbour properties.
You can find any type of climate and vegetation from fertile traditional Andean farmland, high paramo grass-lands, cloud-forest covered mountains, deep river canyons, lush tropical jungles to cactus-studded desert-like landscapes within our riding area. The property itself occupies the most spectacular location within the park, surrounded on 3 sides by canyons, offering wide open views on breathtaking scenery.
The property is used as a riding ranch, with constantly growing touristic demand, international recognition and an expanding close-by turistic infrastructure. But its location, soil and climate would allow many different additional uses (see business opportunities).
Area has favorable conditions for new investments: government favors and supports touristic development in the area. National park regulations allow 2000 m2 of constructions with a maximum of 2 stories, would mean a total of 4000 m2 feasible. Low restrictions, low-price labor
Increasing demand for other activites
Besides the daily riding tours, we are also getting more demand for group tourism, where often not everyone in a group wants to ride, so that clients, organizations and agencies are looking more often for multi-day and multi-activity stays.It is the ideal moment of time to increase the ranch’s infrastructure and activities if desired.
The property and location would be ideal for the construction of turistic cabañas with amazing views, which due to the mild climate could be build with low cost local material. The neighbourhood to an impressive canyon would allow the construction of zip-lines directly from the property, access to volcanic springs close by, possibility of building a Spa in the most unique setting. Multiple trails invite the visitor for hiking, biking, orchid-watching or birding. Climate and setting are furthermore ideal for orchid-farming on the property itself.
Of course, depending on interests and intentions, future ranch owners could also just continue the successful riding-business as it is, or use the property as a unique, peaceful private home, with beautifull surroundings for horse-breeding or similar.
Property location, climate and structure are suitable for various different businesses
Sheep or cattle breading
Fruit and Avocado farming
Adventure and nature sports such as riding, hiking, birding, biking, canyoning, zip-lining
