Mel Gibson discovered his 400-acre beachfront jungle getaway while scouting locations for his 2006 film “Apocalypto.” Now the actor-director, known to roam the property with machete in hand, has put the retreat in Costa Rica up for sale at $29.75 million. He previously listed it three years ago at the same price.

Called Playa Barrigona, the property includes three hilltop villas, a dining pavilion and more than two miles of coastline.

The courtyard-style main house features indoor and outdoor dining and living areas, seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Spanish and Italian tiles, stone carvings and native woods are among the details. One side of the house opens to a veranda, a crescent-shaped swimming pool and sunning areas.

The other two-bedroom houses have kitchens, living rooms and swimming pools. A structure with an open-air dining room and commercial kitchen was shipped from Bali and reassembled on site.

Gibson, 61, won best picture and directing Oscars for “Braveheart” (1995).
