We are a costarican family who lives in a self-sustainable organic paradise. My name is Huber, I have worked in agriculture all my life. 11 years ago a health problem made me realize that the “traditional” way of producing food causes a lot of damage to ecosystems, to the people who produce it and also to those who consume it. So I decided to change our lifestyle to give an example and a better life to my family.
Here we produce our food, and are trying to develop a sustainable tourism business with camping areas, cabins and guided tours of our farm. In general, we want to share our lifestyle and to try to inspire others to live healthy lives in harmony with nature.

We are a costarican family who lives in a self-sustainable organic paradise. In our farm we produce practically everything we need to live, respecting and protecting the environment and sharing our lifestyle with those who visit us. We dream of inspiring each visitor, so that more and more people are interested in the origin of the food they consume and consider how its production affects the environment.
I've been a farmer my entire life, and love to share with people who are interested in learning to work the land to lead a healthier lifestyle.
We are a family project, so there is always something to do around the farm. Sometimes we need help with the crops, making organic fertilizers, or cleaning trails; while other times we need more help answering emails and taking reservations for the tours we offer on the farm. We try to keep it fun and simple; and, as everything in our lives: balanced.
This host offers a language exchange
I only speak Spanish, but my sons are learning English and want to practice more.
We have four rooms for rent in our farm. Workawayers will be given a private room with its own private bathroom. We also have a fully equipped kitchen which is shared with guests.
Workawayers will prepare their own meals with the organic crops we produce in our farm.
We're located in one of the most beautiful parts of Costa Rica, right next to Arenal Volcano.
On their time off Workawayers can either chill in the farm, by the pool or do campfires. But also visit the many touristic -and not so touristic- natural wonders of the area such as hot springs, rivers, waterfalls, many hikes, zip lining tours, hanging bridges, etc.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
We do have wifi at home; however, the speed is not amazing (5 mbps) and sometimes is a little unstable. Usually works fine to check emails, do blog posts and social media, but it's not that reliable for conference calls. We've been told optic fiber will be available soon on the area, we're waiting for it :)
We have a big parking lot where a campervan or RV could be parked.
We have two dogs in the farm. You're welcome to come with your pet as long as it gets along with other dogs and the rest of the animals in the farm (chickens, cows, and wildlife in general)
