Movie star and director Mel Gibson re-listed 403 acres in a Costa Rican jungle for sale for $29.75 million.

He reportedly listed his Costa Rican hideaway for the same price three years ago.

Gibson’s property in Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula includes three villas on a hilltop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

Each of the three villas has vaulted ceilings, a swimming pool and a barbecue area, plus multiple verandas and balconies.

The largest of the villas has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.  The other two have two-bedroom floor plans.

All three villas are a short walk from a sandy beach along the Pacific Ocean, according to the listing held by Robert Davey of Plantacion Properties and Rick Moeser of Christie’s International Real Estate.

Gibson discovered the 403-acre property while seeking sites to film “Apocalypto,” his 2006 adventure film.

Gibson’s Costa Rican property has the highest asking price among several properties he has listed for sale.

Last month he listed a manor in Malibu, California, for $17.5 million, and he wants $26 million for a mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut, that he has been trying to sell since 2014.

Earlier this year, the “Braveheart” star and director sold a four-bedroom house in the exclusive Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles for $2.1 million. He also sold a cottage in Augora Hills, California, this year for $683,000. [MansionGlobal]Mike Seemuth
