375,640 ha, or just under 1 million acres, in the Northwest of Argentina, with potential and feasibility studies for agriculture, cattle ranching, biofuels, renewable energies, and tourism. It is strategically located on the oceanic corridor that crosses Chile, Argentina, and Brazil.

This estate is one of the world’s most extensive tracts of land and is currently available for sale. The property is named “Estancia Punta del Agua.” It is located in the central-western part of Argentina in San Juan Province, in a pre-Andean valley 200 km away from the provincial capital of San Juan. 

It reached its maximum development between 1917 and 1947; by then, it had a post office, a mill, and lodgings for around 100 families. Today, there is a large house, a public school, and a 700m-long landing strip authorised by the National Aviation Council, but it is currently non-operational.  The property had a considerable deterioration due to inappropriate agricultural activity and a major use of native vegetation for fuel, wax production, and to support the operation of a lime mine. Then, because of market access past difficulties, it was abandoned.

Completing National Route 150, known as “The Central Bioceanic Corridor”, provides Punta del Agua with excellent access conditions. The 50 km of road built within the Estancia are fitted on each side with a five-wire fence. It consists of a vast network of roads, 2.486 km long, which connects Porto Alegre, in Brazil (on the Atlantic Ocean), with Coquimbo Port, in Chile (on the Pacific Ocean), crossing the central region of Argentina and passing across the Andes through the Paso de Agua Negra, in San Juan province. 

This project, set in motion by Argentina and Brazil after the founding of the MERCOSUR Regional Trade Agreement, facilitates land access to the Pacific Ocean to foster trade between the Latin American and the central Asian markets, thus improving competitiveness.

This new context, in terms of future infrastructure development, will undoubtedly benefit the area, like the recently completed 132 KV electric transmission line “Huaco-San Agustín de Valle Fértil,” which will cross the Estancia alongside the road, improving even further the area’s development potential.

The Estancia’s primary water resource is the Valle Bermejo Basin, which stretches for 7.200 Km2, transcending San Juan’s limits. Old area studies have identified three large aquifer sectors based on the composition of the soils and the physicochemical quality of the water found. North of the Rio Huaco is where the best hydro-geologic conditions have been found; well water with a conductivity of around 1400 microphone/cm3 has been extracted. Although the southern section contains water with higher conductivity, the foothill area on the west side of the property may contain good quality water underground, coming from the rainfall on top of the mountains.

The Southern part of the property has a Reserve Status over it.

Punta del Agua is 20 km away from Ischigualasto Provincial Park, also known as “Valle de la Luna” (Moon Valley). This reserve Area is unique in the world because of its Triassic formations.

Due to its archaeological and paleontological value, it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Currently under construction, National Route 150—which crosses the Estancia—will shorten the travel distance between “Valle de la Luna” and the capital city of San Juan by 100 km. Once completed, it will become the required way to the park, making Punta del Agua ideal for developing hotels and resorts.

Please Note: Selling this property to a non-Argentine has been illegal since 2011. The law has changed, so foreigners and local citizens will be treated equally and can buy it without restrictions.
