Live with nature in the rainforest while dining on meals of fresh organic foods served to you from our permaculture farm. Finca Tierra is a special place for travelers who want to explore sustainable living, reconnect with nature and eat off the land while on vacation. We’re located near Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, a lush Caribbean beach-rimmed jungle community, and are close to the fabulous beaches south of Puerto Viejo. Our farm practices are guided by permaculture principles and our tourist program combines elements of educational farm and destination lodge, creating what we hope is one of the most original and innovative weeklong vacation options available for travelers today!
We’re 100% solar powered, totally off the grid, and harvest both rainwater and natural spring water. Our organic gardens and food forest supply almost all of the ingredients used in our kitchen. Our buildings are constructed with natural materials that we harvest and fabricate onsite.
Finca Tierra invites guests to spend a week on our unique Costa Rican farm. Each day's program offers something different:
* Immerse yourself in sustainable living through hands-on experiences.
* You are invited to work along side our team and participate in all aspects of farm life.
* Literally, feast on the fruits of your labor.
*Enjoy the beaches, community and culture that make up the spectacular Talamanca region.
* Guests will receive an educational tour of the farm and an introduction to permaculture course
The farm kitchen serves three daily meals, prepared with the freshest ingredients by our farm-to-table chef. Fresh fruits, vegetables, chicken, eggs and river prawns are produced just a few feet away from the bamboo kitchen. Our recipes draw from traditional, tropical farmhouse style cooking that originated with the local indigenous Bri Bri and Afro Caribbean cultures. We cook with local, exotic and always fresh and delicious ingredients. Our menu changes daily and reflects the season's bounty.
All of our construction methods utilize renewable materials and incorporate traditional and new technologies. Farm Stay guests can reserve a bamboo cabin outfitted with mosquito net, a comfortable queen size bed, and a solar lantern. Each cabin 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.
Private Cabin with breakfast: $53 per night or $318 / week (1 person) or $43 per night, per person or $258 week per person (couple).
Finca Tierra was such a great place to stay.
Ian and Ana are both super nice and we loved spending time with them around the farm. Ian showed us around and told us a lot about farming, fruits and nature and it was so interesting! It was our first experience with permaculture and we definetly want to learn more about it.
The food was awesome. And that everything came from the farm was great.
We stayed at the bamboo cabin which we loved- the air matress is super comfy and feels like a real double bed.
We loved our stay here and would be happy to come back some day!
