    We are working with a low budget to become self sustainable one day.

    We live without electricity enought away form noise so is a peacefull place, so if you are looking for big parties and love adventours this is not the place. But if you want relax alone moments in your free time this is a good place for your.

    Hi I am Jessica from Mississippi and appreciate all things natural and plant based.
    I like to share on creative project in groups. I like deep singing. Ecoprinting and healthy food.
    I want to create Retreats for woman self care.

    Hello my name is Gerson
    I am social but like to have my space alone. I like talk about everything except futbol and fancy cars.

    I like nature and coexist in, but i am not romantic about it.
    I am faraway from being a pachamama hippie
    I respect others points of view mostly.

    If you askme about places to visit or things to do i can be helpfull as i know Costa Rica very well. Also i do transport service on moto even from the airport.

    Also we have weekends free of work and ask people to leave from 8am to 430pm each day saturday and sunday.

    We welcome people who like to work and help.
    Also we prefer couples or girls. If you are a guy we hope you know the word respect.


    Somos un proyecto familiar pequeño en una zona rural en costa rica.
    Vivimos sin electricidad con nuestros animales.
    Queremos ser autosotenibles aunque no tenemos ingreso de recursos economicos.
    Yo Gerson decidi mudarme aqui x la paz y lejania con la ciudad.
    Me gusta la naturaleza, pero no creo q la despoblacion del mundo sea legitima ni necesaria. El planeta tiene para todos.
    Creo en la paridad e igualdad de genero y el respeto mutuo pero no me llevo bien con la idea de darle la vuelta a la tortilla.
