Buy farm/forest land i San Martin

Postby BjornM » Wed Feb 18, 2015 10:54 am

Hello everyone!

What is a normal price for farm land or undeveloped forest in the San Martin area? I know it varies a lot depending on location and type, but I'm trying to get an idea of what to expect for remote land.

As I understand, foreigners can own land in their own name. How can I avoid getting into trouble? Getting a real title deed is obvious, but perhaps that is no guarantee?

For example here is a Cacao farm of 8 ha plus additional space in total 20 ha for 20,000 USD. ... ficar.html

I've seen some more properties on the web, and they are around 1000 to 2000 USD per ha, is this realistic?

My vision is to buy some remote land and build a small house on it and live in seclusion. I love forests and mountains, so San Martin and Tarapoto seem like a good match. I had a house like this before in Thailand, and now I am trying to understand how it compares to Peru.

In the moment you need a boat to go there...its heavily flooded area after torrential rainfalls :shock:
