  • Description


    My name is Kembly I'm a USN Veterans, I currently live here in Costa Rica I came back to my country of born to enjoy my time with my grandmother who took care of me before moving to the USA back in the early 80s, I decided I wanted to come back to get to know my other side of my family and so I'm slowly, while been here for now a year and so months I have noticed the amount of people traveling to Costa Rica but not only that while in the USA everyone will always ask me about Costa Rica and me not knowing much they will tell me how beautiful the country is. So little by little I'm seem the beautiful country so much people talk about. I'm currently in the process of building a house not just me but others who want to visit and want to know about Costa Rica, to show people the culture and at the same time learn about others while been in the military I travel many places but with restrictions and limits about countries. So this time I have no restrictions but to live life and enjoy life the most that I can.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They would be able to know the people not just travelers but the native people, culture, food diversity, they will get to travel and know the region around then I'm myself learning my country and I could teach the language. I want to finish building a dream not just for me but for the future travellers. I do need someone that is very open minded that could also see my image. I do plenty of fishing and biking I'm constantly on the move.

  • Help


    For my project I currently have a little house that I started but it's been a struggle finding good help. I want to build something that many people could come and feel at home. Gardening, farming construction, planning, blueprint. I need help in finishing my second part of the house I want to finish I have all the materials but it's the help that I need I want have enough space to be able to accommodate.
