The Space

Finca Tierra is a permaculture education and demonstration center that opens it doors to guests when courses are not being held. Constructed with jungle farm resources, like bamboo, wood and leaf thatch, the structures and layout of the farm take into account patterns, sun, wind and water. The buildings cool and power themselves as well as harvest all of the water and are surrounded by organic gardens, spring waters and a small river. Ecological Design with a rustic elegant finish!

We are a 30 minute beautiful jungle walk from the beach! The farm is design into areas. Area 1, is the Farm kitchen and two gardens with fruits, edible leaves, veggies, herbs, natural medicine and roots. In this area you can also find four cabins, two campsites, dinning/chill out space and a lounge with hamocks. Area 2 to area 5 includes the nursery, free-range chickens, main crops, the food forest, timber and bamboo, and giant rainforest trees, home for a variety of animals.

Campsites are outfitted with a covered outdoor living area, a large tent with screened ventilation, a comfortable queen size bed, hammocks, lounge chairs, and a solar lantern. Each campsite has a private, modern bathroom with shower, made of bamboo and concrete, and supplied with bio-thermal hot water.

WiFi is available in communal areas.

Guest Access

Access to beautiful beaches for surfing, for diving, snorkeling and kayaking in a 30 minute walk. If you are coming by car make sure is a 4x4 or you would have to walk the last 300 meters.

The river is a 10 minute walk into the jungle. We also have springs with fresh crystal clean water!

You will have access to our food forest and organic gardens, also communal areas for hanging out with fire and music. We are located in the jungle surrounded by private rainforest reserve. Tours to the rainforest are also available!

Interaction with Guests

Finca Tierra is our home and a working farm, so we'll probably see you around. If we aren't at the farm, there will always be a local property manager on call if you need anything. In general, we leave our guests up to their own devices, and we are always happy to offer suggestions of things to do and places to go.

The Neighborhood

We’re located near Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, a lush Caribbean beach-rimmed jungle community, and are close to the most fabulous beaches in the south Caribbean of Costa Rica! We are so lucky to have other organic farmers in our neighborhood with which we share knowledge, seeds and fun times! Located up in the hills above the beach we have the fresh ocean breeze and fewer bugs!

Surrounded by jungle, you will see a variety of plants, trees and animals like agoutis, sloths, monkeys, armadillos, anteaters, wild cats, toucans, parrots, and crazy looking insects! Every morning you will hear a beautiful concert of all kinds of colorful birds and every night you will sleep with the ocean sound!

There are coffee shops and restaurants, supermarkets, soccer field, a beach club, the animal rescue center, a few hotels and the bus stop in front of the beach on the bottom of our road. Our road is located between two beaches, playa Cócles to the left is a popular surfing and socializing beach, to the right is Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva, with coral tide pools, it’s a great spot to swim in calm waters and snorkel.

Getting Around

Parking spaces are available on the property. Bicycles can be rented near the entrance of our road and are a common mode of transport in the area. The public bus stops at the entrance of the road and goes to other local beaches and San Jose. Taxis are also available.
