We are small international family: Nadja (has 25 years of experience of business and realisation of social projects), Mario (has 14 years of experience of beekeeping) and Iva (our daughter is 12 months old and she is in our project from her first days :)). We created the unique social and the same time business project related with stingless bees - native bees from Costa Rica. Bees who do NOT BITE and produce most treasured natural medicine, like honey, pollen, propolis and Royal Jelly, jet we have more than 100 beehives. We provide two kinds of treatments for hotels, retreat centers, medical resorts, clinics and end clients - air inhalation from the beehives and Sleep on beehives. Our goal is also to conduct various kinds of research and works, the ultimate goal of which is to educate society and grow the population of stingless bees.
Our project grow and develop in the Península de Nicoya, one of the fifth unique places in the world where people live much longer than average.
We live in beautiful big house couple minutes away from the beach. We need help and are happy to invite and share our space, time and knowledge with persons who are ready to bring appropriate extra value to our project and life.
