Mel Gibson Lists His Costa Rican Jungle Estate for $29.75M

Mel Gibson's Costa Rican retreat boasts 400 acres of jungle.It appears Mel Gibson is unloading some of his real estate portfolio. After putting his Medieval-inspired Malibu manor on the market for $17.5M last month, the actor-director has now listed his jungle retreat in Costa Rica for $29.75M. Gibson discovered the 400-acre property while scouting locations for his 2006 movie Apocalypto.

Called Playa Barrigona, the property is unparalleled in its seclusion, featuring 3 villas nestled among 400 acres of pristine jungle. The largest of the villas comprises 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms and features vaulted ceilings, native Costa Rican wood detailing and a large swimming pool. The other 2 villas each have 2 bedrooms and their own pools as well. All 3 homes feature verandas that take advantage of the stunning jungle and ocean vistas and each is only steps away from a dazzling white sand beach.

Christie’s International Realty’s Robert Davey and Rick Moeser represent the listing, which the LA Times reported.
