About the Host, Trudy
We are retirees, spending as much time as we can in pleasant surroundings, doing things we like. We both are energy healers, caring for and helping ourselves, our family and friends, animals, plants and the environment. Our Cahuita home and yard is filled with positive energy and vibrancy. When we are not there, we like to provide other people with an opportunity to enjoy the beauty and tranquility it offers. We have traveled and vacationed in over 20 countries and finally decided on Cahuita, Costa Rica to be the place to settle for the remainider of our winters. We like the quite of nature, the friendliness of local people in a small town where everyone knows every one else . We like having neighbors who care and are willing to help each other when needed. We love nature walks, bicycling and swimming in the ocean. We like to get to know the people who stay at our home, and are only one email away to answer any questions.
