We spent a wonderful time at Chema y Margas place. It was very relaxing and we learnt a lot from Chema, who has a bride knowledge about the nature and social culture. And Marga impressed us with her cooking. Chema gave us a tour in his fog forest and showed us also the waterfalls. We enjoyed it very much. Both are very nice and helpful. I can highly recommend this place especially if you would like to be outside of the touristic spots.

Chema and Marga were amazing hosts, and their home is absolutely stunning. It was such an amazing and unique experience to live with them for several days and learn about their permaculture and sustainability model. Their home is beautifully built through models of sacred geometry and holds the most wonderful energy. Marga cooked all of our meals, and they were beyond anything we could have expected. She has a true gift with cooking, and used all authentic costa rican ingredients- most of which came from their own gardens! Chema and Marga were kind, helpful, and wonderful hosts. It is a true gift to experience their way of life!

A taste of paradise on earth! Marga and Chema provide a very clean, comfortable, and relaxed mountain retreat. They've done an incredible job of making their chunk of land a nature lover's dream. As a Holistic Nutritionist I often have to be flexible with what I eat when traveling. Thanks to Marga's marcrobiotic cooking, I maintained my sense of energy and health during the whole trip. Also, typically on travels you end up feeling hungry often, but these meals were generous and plentiful so that was never the case. Chema is very hospitable and shares tons of interesting wisdom, insights, and stories. We feel as though we've gained a years worth of education in our short trip. There are some beautiful hikes and waterfalls around their home which make for fun daytime activities. We also did the horseback riding and massage treatment and thoroughly enjoyed both. Cost of accommodation and food is very fair. As many have said, it is a bit of a drive to get up and down from the mountain so plan your activities accordingly. An amazing experience with some wonderful people!

Chema Y Marga User ProfileChema Y Marga is a superhost.

We are native from Madrid, Spain. Residing in Costa Rica since 1976, following a sustanable way of life. We offer holistic health and sustainable practices seminars. We also offer horse back riding for experienced riders and nature hikes through the tropical forest and to the local waterfalls and pools.
For us to have a guest is a way to share our way of life, to promote a sustainable life and to make friends.
Our main object is two fold, first is to simplify our way of life by practicing sustainable techniques and regenerative activities; second is to be minimizing our impact on the planet, that is, that our ecological footprint would be less and as we see it, is about quality of life instead of standard of living.
