  • Descripción


    We have a small finca (8 hectares / 20 acrs. ) in the southern zone of costa rica, nearby and on the main road to Pavones (world famous surfing location). we kept our jungle in a natural condition ( past 20 yrs.) but need some help now maintaining this. This is real jungle , but a short walk / bike-ride to small shops down the road & to the beach ( puerto pilon & rio claro /Pavones Surf break) for warm-water surfing & slices of paradise !
    It is much easier to get here now than 24 yrs ago ,when horse,boat & by foot were the norm. Now U can get a cel-fone in any airport or town ( calls are cheap) & internet access by c- fone or wifi in small bars out in the Jungle and drive a car down a good but quiet road. Bus comes by 2x / day and makes connections to Golfito - (to San Jose) & Paso Canoas ( at the Panamanian Border ).
    *️*️*️*️*️ Be sure to call ahead of time to get current conditions at the finca and what to expect for work trade or other inputs . These agreements should be made 'clear' with Roberto before any arrivals . His, ( & My ), contact info will be shown in our 'reply' template.
    Gracias , Richard

    YOU,as volunteering here, should be of good health, reasonably fearless,alert,
    curious and wanting this rustic experience of jungle-living ( w/small 'general' shops down the road !).*️️*️️*️️ self-sufficiency , good attitude , and safe use of a machete goes a long-way,out here .
    YOu can feel more than welcome with us .... we also may soon consider a 'caretaker' position for the correct "sustainably - green-minded" person !
    > we also have interests in medicinal plants /planting for harvest & profit , including the making of related products . We have a small nursery that propagates desirable native plants & trees that are in-demand as the area is now being populated with folks who have seen the advantages of living here and have acted on this in a positive & responsible manner & investment !

    Algo más...

    bring a tent , surfboard,hammock,chainsaw,sunscreen,hat,tools , R.V. , fishing gear, solar panel , good-natural toothpaste, -do-able visions, etc. ..anything-you-like ! During 'free-times' there is much to do,see & experience nearby ! ( google Pavones,Costa Rica and You will get a 'glimspe').
    We are interested in people willing to learn & contribute. If you're looking for a vacation with out work it's best you stay in town if there are (affordable) accommodations ?. I only mention this because we have experienced such individuals, who would eventually 'admit' that they were 'on vacation' and just wanted to surf and 'smoke' .
