The Space

Marga´s and Chema´s home is a large elegant two storied round building with a geodesic dome on top for holistic practices. Large living room with fire place. Private bathrooms in every bedroom. Dining room with forest and ocean view from 1000 m above sea level. No grid connection, solar panels, rooms with candle light. Spring water from the property.

With over 25 years experience in sustainable practices, have been able to maintain a harmonious balance between the sorrounding forest and human presence. It is a large biological farm with organic garden and fruit trees. The horses are a breed cross between spanish andalusian and costarican Paso Fino.

Caters to naturalists, artists, mistics, equestrians, holistic groups and sustainable practice seminars. Property is adjacent to Biological Corredor "El Paso de la Danta". Rural road to the beach by four wheal drive (National Marine Park Bahia Ballena) 12 km away.

The many rivers, brooks, waterfalls and natural swimming pools in the area, besides several nature trails through the forest; gives the naturalist a sample of this tropical land. In top of all this, the breath taking views over the rolling valles and down to the coast line.

One can also participate in voluntary hands on sustainable practices, which are Margas and Chemas way of life. Some of these practices are biological gardening, reforestation, different crafts and horse care.

So, what is a sustainable way of life? It is a friendly relationship with nature, where the "cost of living" is directly related to minimizing environmental impact; where a true economy is based in minimizing waste and being frugal. Reciclying, craftmanship, growing your own food and avoiding consumerism.
