    Description

    Our little farm is about 1 km west of the main highway. It is located within the jungle and has a friendly, rustic ambiance. We started our project in 2009. We grow organic vegetables and are in the process of planting fruit trees. We raise birds, chickens, geese, turkeys and fish. We also have some very nice and friendly dogs that we have rescued from the street and from ex-owners abuse. We find homes for them after they have been spayed and neutered. Very often we see wild monkeys in the trees. We have a small cabaña with all the basic services that are available to share. We provide vegetables from our own organic garden and delicious organic eggs for the volunteers to cook themselves on the stove in the cabaña. We also offer some areas where a tent can be used for camping. We have a bicycle available, if desired.
