La Fortaleza -an unfinished beauty with great potential in San Juan del Sur, el Carrizal

La Fortaleza is a partially-built four-store building overviewing the Pacific Ocean in El Carrizal, San Juan del Sur. Customize and decorate your home / rental properties without having to deal with the whole construction process.

This building has the potential to generate rental income from 4 individual apartments, or as one full home.

About the location:

El Carrizal / El Socorro is a neighborhood located 10-15 minutes South of San Juan del Sur and overviewing astonishing valley and ocean views. It is 15 minutes drive from Playa Hermosa, Playa Remanso and Playa Yankee.

The property is part of the friendly eco-living community called Finca de Escamequita – Phase I. This quiet and peaceful development features maintained dirt roads, and many hiking trails around the tropical forest. There are a dozen of houses built farer in the development, and more to come.

As La Fortaleza is located at the entrance of the development, the road to access the property from town is fully paved – except for the last 100 meters.

About the building:

La Fortaleza is a four-story building overviewing stunning mountain and ocean views in el Carrizal. It was built in 2018 and features three floors that could be turned either as three condominium units, or a 4 bedrooms house.

The views from La Fortaleza are truly breathtaking, and it’s easy to spend hours just taking in natural beauty. Plus, with a four-story design, residents can enjoy plenty of privacy.

The building is made of steel and concrete, has outdoor steel stairs, and features high ceilings. It was built to withstand earthquakes and has strong foundations. The whole building has been recently maintained and repainted.

The layout of La Fortaleza can be easily adapted to your needs, as it has an open floor plan with a few possibilities! As the building is only 70% done, you could choose to have different finishes and colors to make it your own.


The ground floor features a bathroom, a laundry room, a storage room and a wide room that could either be turned into a studio, or used as a garage / work shop.


The first floor features two bedrooms, one shared bathroom, as well as a front room overviewing the garden and ocean.

This floor could easily be turned into a two bedrooms condominium or one spacious studio with separate office.


Floor 2 features two bright bedrooms sharing a Jack and Jill bathroom. You can access both bedrooms from the outdoor balcony.

You could close the balcony and turn it into a little kitchen, dining space, or workspace. Floor 2 could be an individual apartment.


This is my favorite room of La Fortaleza – with a 180° panoramic view of the bay. It features a wide-open room and a smaller room that could either be a bathroom or a storage closet. There are two concrete benches on each side of the spacious room to enjoy the breeze and view.

Keep it open as a rooftop terrace, or make it a cozy bright living room with wide windows. You could also turn it into a rooftop studio as there is a full bathroom.

* Note that the septic system is completed.

** You could finish the project for another $30-50,000 investment.

About the land:

La Fortaleza is built on a gentle slope lot (3,604 sq meters), so the view is great from every level, and no construction can block it.

You would have plenty of space to landscape your garden, build additional units, and install an infinity pool. Another option would be to divide the land and sell part of it.

There is also the possibility to buy the lot next door and extend your property.

With its stunning location, incredible views, and extended garden, La Fortaleza could be the perfect spot for you to invest in!

Turned it into a full gorgeous home, a yoga/surf hostel, or 4 condominiums, this project has a great potential in San Juan del Sur.
