    >>>>We are a couple who moved here three years ago and decided we were too young to be completely retire. 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 2 completed treehouses and have happily hosted many guests. Thinking we may be on to something we’ve acquired more land and are now planning to offer more treehouses each with its own unique design. Currently, we are constructing #3 treehouse and now feeling the need not only to have some additional help but also 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 organic plants with no chemicals, composting and striving to be more sustainable collecting rain water and using our own on farm water wells, Pura Vida.
