We have a gorgeous 2 acre meditation garden made from part of our coffee plantation that features a river, 12 meditation benches, old growth manicured hedges, peat rock paths, flowers and fruit trees.

Our ranch has exquisite panoramic views of Irazu volcano, Turrialba volcano, Braulio Carrillo national park and the night time lights of San Jose. Close by things to do are La Paz Waterfall gardens, Zip lines, river rafting. There is good local hiking as well and the village of San isidro is only one mile away and has bus service and a variety of amenities. Taxis are quickly available and inexpensive.
