  • Description

    Description

    We are a multifaceted family, we carry out several activities that include education, bakery and lodging.

    We are looking for dynamic, creative, flexible, independent people, lovers of contact with nature, who have patience and like to teach.
    We are calm people, we strive to maintain healthy habits, we exercise, meditation, yoga. We want to receive people who share this energy, we do not smoke, nor are we allowed to do it indoors, nor do we consume liquor or any type of substance that produces altered states of consciousness.
    We are a couple than live with our teenager son. We have one dog, six cats, and occasional visitors to the forest as sloths, monkeys, iguanas and colorful birds.
    Our diverse activities and work rhythms do not always allow us to share a lot of time with the volunteers, so if they are independent and proactive their stay is more fruitful.
    We live in a multicultural community with people from over 50 different nationalities in a range of a few kilometers.

    Somos una familia polifacética, realizamos varias actividades que incluyen educación, panadería y hospedaje.

    Buscamos personas dinámicas, creativas, flexibles, independientes, amantes del contacto con la naturaleza, que tengan paciencia y les guste enseñar.
    Nosotros somos personas tranquilas, nos esforzamos por mantener hábitos saludables, hacemos ejercicio, meditación, yoga. Queremos recibir personas que compartan esta energía, no fumamos, ni se permite hacerlo dentro de casa y tampoco consumimos licor ni ningún tipo de sustancia que produzca estados alterados de conciencia.

    Somos unja pareja que vivimos con nuetro hijo adolecente, tenemos un perro, seis gatos y visitantes ocasionales del bosque como perezosos, monos, iguanas y aves multicolores.
    Nuestras diversas actividades y ritmos de labores, no siempre nos permiten compartir mucho tiempo con l@s voluntari@s, por lo que si son independientes y proactivos es mas fructifera su estadia.
    Vivimos en una comunidad multicultural con personas de mas de 50 nacionalidades diferentes en un rango de pocos kilómetros.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The continuous movement is the greatest lesson of the area, nothing is predictable, neither the climate, nor the processes that in other places are very fixed and defined. It is therefore an experience to recognize, confront and, if it is chosen, to change schemes, beliefs and customs.
    In the area we live together with people of different nationalities, cultures and customs. That in itself makes it interesting to live in the southern Caribbean of Costa Rica. The contact with the nature of both the mountain and the sea are an opportunity for those who want to connect with it.
    Whoever helps in baking can see and learn basic principles of baking bread.
    To be honest, the help is very manual and basic, because they are simple tasks and daily routine.

    El movimiento continuo es la mayor leccion del area, nada es predecible, ni el clima, ni los procesos que en otros lugares son muy fijos y definidos. Por ello es una experiencia para reconocer, enfrentarse y, si se elije, cambiar esquemas, creencias y costumbres.
    En la zona convivimos personas de diversas nacionalidades, culturas y costumbres. Eso por si hace interesante el vivir en el caribe sur de Costa Rica. El contacto con la naturaleza tanto de la montaña como del mar son un oportunidad para quien quiera conectarse con ella.
    Quien ayude en panadería puede ver y aprender principios básicos de elaborar pan.
    Para ser honestos la ayuda es muy manual y basica, pues son tareas sencillas y de rutina diaria.
