    [workaway note: please contact this host in Spanish]

    My name is Mar, I give workshops to children in Cahuita, Costa Rica, I live in an area of one hectare and a half, in which I try to respect the natural environment for the habitat of native animals. I would like, apart from maintaining it, to be able to cultivate medicinal species and vegetables. I love where I live because it is in the middle of nature and there are a lot of animals, sloths, howlers, toucans, raccoons, etc. And it is a quiet place, where you hear the rumor of the sea, which is only 200 meters away, and the songs of the birds. With time I would like to focus it to be a place for children, as a kind of camps.

    Me llamo Mar, doy talleres a niños en Cahuita, Costa Rica, Vivo en un terreno de una hectárea y media, en la que intento respetar al máximo el contorno natural para el hábitat de los animales autóctonos. Me gustaría , aparte de mantenerlo, poder cultivar especies medicinales y hortalizas. Me encanta donde vivo por que es en mitad de la naturaleza y hay un montón de animales, perezosos, aulladores, tucanes, mapaches, etc. es un sitio tranquilo, donde se oye el rumor del mar, que esta solo a 200 metros, y los cantos de las aves.Con tiempo me gustaría enfocarlo para ser un lugar para niños, como una especie de campamentos.

    It is for nature lovers, since we are in an area, where they live as howler monkeys, toucans, orioles, raccoons, owls, iguanas, hummingbirds, etc. and is located 200 meters from the nesting of leatherback turtles.
    I am in the conservation association of these turtles.

    Estoy en la asociación de la conservación de esta tortugas.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are 4 km away. from the town of Cahuita, so the area is very quiet. We need to respect this tranquility. In the mornings I go to work with children in the village, and in the afternoons, I usually go back to the house.
    The person who comes will have independence, but you can always count on my help and advice for what you need.

    Estamos a 4 km. del pueblo de Cahuita, por lo que la zona es muy tranquila. Necesitamos que se respete esta tranquilidad. Por las mañanas voy a trabajar con niños al pueblo, y por las tardes, generalmente vuelvo a la casa.
    La persona que venga tendrá independencia, pero siempre podrá contar con mi ayuda y consejo para lo que necesite.
    La idea es de una vez arreglada la finca disponerla para hacer campamentos con los niños , ya que en la zona no hay
    nada parecido y los niños no tienen muchas opciones para aprender y divertirse. Este es un proyecto que esta empezando,pero tengo mucha fe que se va a realizar con ayuda de todos.
