The space
Built by the hard work and love of many hands, this rustic dormitory rests at the heart of our farm. With cob, coconut husks and lumber from our land, these walls tell a story. Guests wake up to the sunrise or the forest cloud mist. Our dormitory beds have their own mosquito-nets and storage space for personal items. Enjoy access to a beautiful communal kitchen, shared "outdoor" solar-showers, shared dry-compost toilets, and a laundry facility. There are several trails to enjoy throughout the property, hammocks for napping, fresh fruit to pick, and a never-ending cacophony of birds, insects and other natural sounds to lull you into an enriching peace. Staying on an organic permaculture farm can be a life-changing experience, giving visitors a taste of what it's like to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Guest access
The farm and surrounding areas offer many spaces to unwind such as; hammocks, gardens, a small waterfall, mountain hikes, nearby beautiful rivers and Uvita's famous Whale's tail beach and National Park about an hour away. The Fruition Center has a fully stocked semi-outdoor kitchen available for guests to prepare their meals in. A lovely local woman is also available to make delicious local dishes, to order. (read more below).

TOWELS & AMENITIES:
Please consider that we live in a humid tropical climate. We highly recommend that you bring along easy drying towels and clothes. We only make use of Eco-friendly products so please ensure you bring some along.

Other things to note
- Check-in times: 10.00 AM to 6.00 PM.

- One of the core ethos of permaculture is the care of the earth. Recycling and preserving our natural resources is a big component of this. Please respect the community's ecological guidelines and support its efforts by not bringing in outside packaging, including: tetra packs, plastic bags, plastic water bottles, straws, plastic wraps, aluminum foil, one-time-use items, and non-biodegradable hygiene products.

- We are located in a remote area of town, please have a look at a map to see where we are. We suggest you plan your drive or bus ride to the Finca in advance, so we can be connected and ready to help you with any challenges you may have on route.

- If you are going to rent a car, we strongly suggest a 4x4 vehicle, especially during rainy season.

- If you are coming from San José or the SJO airport, please consider that despite the fact that we are about 160 km away, driving from the big city could take you approximately 4 hours.

San Isidro de El General, San José Province, Costa Rica

Our pueblo (neighborhood) is called San Agustin. It's approximately a 17km/35-minute drive from San Isidro de El General, in Perez Zeledon. It's off the beaten path and it gives visitors a wonderful welcome to the tranquility of rural & tropical Costa Rica.

The town has a school, a church, and 2 small stores, there are no bars or restaurants. We have a delightful relationship with the surrounding neighbors who are generally family farmers raising coffee, cows, bananas, and friendly children.

A lovely local woman is also available to make delicious local dishes, to order. They can be delivered, picked up (5-8 minute walk), or arranged for an in-home dining experience. A menu is available in the Fruition Center to order from.
Highly recommended!!!

    During your stay
    We are a farming community living on site, the dorm is for volunteers as well as guests. The guests can interact and be part of the farming lifestyle as much as they want, but there's plenty of space if you just want to retire and have quiet time in nature.
