  • Description


    We are a family of four living in Costa Rica. I have three children, my son is 9 and my daughters are 7&6. We live on Lake Arenal in the beautiful, lush rainforest. The property has a casita with its own kitchen.
    I am looking for help with guiding my children through academics of learning through nature and play and over all enrichment such as dance, music, gymnastics and or sports.
    We do a lot of traveling around the country from the mountains to the beaches and would love to have help all along the way.
