If you want to get out of your comfort zone just a little and get into one that will leave you to reconsider how you do things back at home... This is it... I am what i like to consider myself a well versed traveler, butt his place left me with yet another notch under my belt to say i did it and I wish I could have been there longer. W picked our own fruits for breakfasts and juices, picked our own vegetables from the fields and greenhouses... a leaf at taste like cranberries and, fresh pesto made from basils, which i never knew there were so many different varieties of basils alone.... I didn't get to meet the founder Steve however, the volunteers and help he had there is amazing.... Te snorkeling and kayaking were absolutely amazing... Did i mention free and included in your cost... Also the organic diet of breakfast lunch and dinner... All free... I consider myself a huge meat-a-tarian and not eating any meat was amazingly tasty and fulfilling... They do cook meat on occasion and i you ask i bet the would cook it for you given the provided groceries but I'd say try something new or if you are already vegetarian vegan.... Trust me you'll fit right in. The library is amazing... The rooms great. No fans no ac... Its sustainable jungle solar power type stuff... I bet they could provide a fan but go without it for a while and don't be a wuss. The carpentry work is awesome... Not perfect dovetails but i bet the main building is under an inch square if any architects are out there. Really well made. Nice nice wood as well , which all comes from the 85 acre farm. You will learn to blow a conch shell like Lord of the flies if your heart desires. There is a lot of diverse plant, including some rare collections. Amazing wildlife living around as well.. Bring bug spray, and flip flops as you will get wet be it from the rain or just the way life goes... Do some yoga, and have fun most of all.
