This gorgeous property strategically located between Cartagena and Barranquilla, on the Via al Mar Highway (just 8 Miles from Cartagena), has almost a Mile long waterfront with a spectacular beach on Ensenada del Gato (Cat Cove), which is more than 5 Miles in extension. Due to its location and natural landscape, this 2102 Acre property (8.5 million square meters), is ideal to be developed as a whole. Its pristine waters and clean beach allow a limitless use for tourism. It also has two natural waterways that run to the sea and allow the construction of marinas in the premises.
In more than 250 Acres (100Ha.) of fresh water lakes, we have established an ecosystem where we grow the largest fish farm of Tarpon (Megalops Atlanticus) in Colombia. A great variety of wildlife like capibaras, otters, deer, monkeys, parrots, raccoons, small felines and many species of birds coexist in the woods and lakes. The depth of its waters, (an average of 24 feet) and the extension of the lakes keep the water temperature very low, so evaporation rates are low too.
The possibility of providing fresh water to other projects and communities is possible and is a good option as an economic resource to sell this precious element that we have in excess.
Another quality of Altamira´s geography is its outstanding height above sea level (up to 70 meters on the hills to 6 meters close to the beach), being at the same time relatively level and giving the residents and visitors a magnificent view of the bay , the lakes and golf courses. This permits us to work on landscaping on a very easy way to develop Marines, Hotels, Golf Courses, permanent and temporary residences, casinos and Convention Centers, Spas, Hospitals ,amusement parks among other possibilities.
On the premises we have energy lines to feed any project, no matter its magnitude. Telephone communications and Internet are also of excellent quality and available.
Right now the government is building two more lanes to the existing Highway (Via al Mar), giving this important way a higher category and agility and the construction of an international airport between Cartagena and Barranquilla which will give us the capacity to receive large passenger and cargo planes is in its planning stage.
