    Good Host

 Min stay requested: at least 2 weeks

  • Description


    We are a family-owned tourism, permaculture and reforestation project, operated by a single dad and its kids every second week. Due to Covid we had to scale down the lodge activity to a minimum and are now refocusing our activities on agriculture and jungle protection. We built everything by ourselves from nothing in the middle of a pristine environment, far from civilization. We offer you a stay in full contact with nature, in the heart of Costa Rican flora and fauna, surrounded by breathtaking scenery, outside the hustle and bustle of the city.
    Because we are away from everything we homeschool our two kids of 8 and 10 years old.
    Our days are organised around taking care of the kids, maintening and cleanng the bungalows and the garden, planting trees, weeding the vegetable garden, and expanding our orchards...

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have the opportunity to learn more about everything we do, as well as the environment of this little-known region of Costa Rica, through our more than 60 hectares of land. We are located in a mountainous region that is quite difficult to access, so contacts with the outside world are quite limited. You will be part of a real hideway jewel.
