    >>>>We are a couple who moved here and decided we were too young to be completely retired, so we didn’t.. So we are 2km from the most beautiful Caribbean beaches in Costa Rica and in the rainforest opening up our jungle farm and building fully functioning treehouses & community house for short-stay visitors. We have receive excellent reviews on the first 3 completed treehouses and have happily hosted many guests. Thinking we may be on to something we’ve acquired a bit more land and are now planning to offer more treehouses each with its own unique design. Currently we not only need to have some additional help but also want to share in this wonderful experience. We have planted many more fruit trees, eatable and medicinal plants a long with some floral on our 3 acres. We are strictly growing with organic practices of plants with no chemicals and composting while striving to be more sustainable collecting rain water and using our own on farm water wells, please check our calendar and apply if this seems like something you can do, Pura Vida.
