My three days and nights here were extraordinary. The beauty, the food, the land, the people, the sea, the flowers, the energy all was amazing. I learned so much about sustainable living. I felt peaceful and loved. The owners are gems, the staff was fun and the food they cooked for us was made with such love it was absorbed... More

This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever had the chance to experience. It's an 80+ acre organic farm perched on the edge of the Costa Rican rainforest, with the Caribbean ocean just steps away from the house where we slept. We hiked into the property and were greeted with cold water, fresh fruit, and many smiles! The... More

The location is remote and rustic, truly beautiful. The food was delicious, talk about local, sustainable, and organic, wow! The rooms are simple but clean and inviting, the showers are in their...

Punta Mona is the "land of freedom". Go check it out! It`s jungle, ocean, good food, lovely people and being not only in, but being with nature. Learn about living sustainably, living in community, growing your own food, fruit trees (duh), herbalism and much more!

It's off the grid, and two hours into the jungle (or a beautiful 45 minutes ride by boat from Manzanillo), but it's well worth... More
