Volcan Pacifica: The Land, February 2008

The 67.5 hectares of Volcan Pacifica is set in hilly fields leading into lush cloud rainforest. The hills of the property allow for spectacular views for a good number of the proposed 82 properties. There has also been a good deal of thought in how to retain as much of the integral greenery of the development: the final area of the lots is set at 51.79% of the total area, the access roads 7.68%, whilst the green areas amount to 9.91% and the public area 5.58%. Added to this is the equestrian centre with 1.71% (approximately three acres) and ravine area of 2.41%. At the top of the development, on the far north-western hilltop, will be the first-class Clubhouse and surrounding area comprising a total of 20.83% of the whole development.

The whole area is bounded on the whole north, north-west and north-eastern end by steep-sided rainforest (which goes over the hills at the back into more steep-sided cloud rainforest; the southern end by two rivers; there is only one access road into the development and that is ours. This access will have 24-hour security.
