Purchased by the A-List celebrity in 2007, Mel Gibson’s impressive luxury estate in Costa Rica is for sale. Previously listed by the actor in 2015, the $29.75 million sprawling beachfront estate is once again up for grabs. Quite spectacular and extremely remote, this luxury home in Costa Rica is set on a hilltop overlooking the sparkling Pacific Ocean.

Offering generous living spaces, stunning views and superb comfort, the celebrity real estate owned by Mel Gibson is situated among 500 sprawling acres of private Jungle in Costa Rica. This impressive beachfront estate is comprised of three separate homes nestled on the hilltop and are just a short walk away to a secluded white-sand beach.
Comprised of three separate villas, spread across 12 bedrooms and 14 baths, Playa Barrigona is both wonderfully private and brings you the utmost in attention to detail. Discover custom-fitted with native Costa Rican woods and Spanish and Italian tiles, an open living room with vaulted ceilings, a full chef’s kitchen, and multiple verandas boasting breathtaking Pacific Ocean and jungle vistas.
