    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The farm is 2900 feet above sea level.
    We have wild birds flying around the house daily and monkeys visit from time to time. It is like living in a zoo.


    It's an amazing place to sleep with nature, sometimes the house is filled with clouds as we are so high up in the mountains. You can hear the rio negro and the sounds of wild life all the time.

    Meditate and grow your own basic food. Eat coconuts and see how much fun farm life can be!
