Our sustainable way of life is based on bioagriculture, solar energie, reforestation, arts&crafts, horses & holistic health practices, which you can partake on. Adjacent to the biological corredor "El Paso de la Danta" (The Path of the Tapir)
For the more adventurous, there are nature tours through the tropical forest, hike to the different waterfalls and natural swimming pools.

Der Wohnraum

Margas and Chemas home is a large elegant, two storied round building with a geodesic dome on top for holistic exercises. A large living room with a fire place. Private bathroom in every bedroom. The dinning room and living room have a view to the forest and ocean from 1000 mts above sea level. No grid connection, solar panels and candles. The spring of fresh water is in the property.

With over 25 years experience in sustainable practices.
A large biological farm with organic gardens and fruit trees. Thoroughbred horses, a cross between andalusian and costarrican paso fino.

Caters to naturalists, equestrians, holistic health groups, artists, mystics and clases are given in sustainable practices. Property is adjacent to the Biological Corridor "El Paso de la Danta"

A rural foot path to the beach, 12 kms and the National Marine Park Marino Ballena, where twice a year the humpback whales migrate. Also, there is a large variety of dolphins which make their home in these waters.

Many cascading rivers in the area where to swim, sorounded by tropical forests and spectacular views.

So, what is a sustainable way of life? It is a friendly relationship with nature, where the "cost of living" is directly related to minimicing environmental impact and a true economy based in frugality, recycling, craftsmanship, growing your own food and avoiding consumerism.

It is important that you know that we are not a business, it is just our way of life and you share our home and way of life with us.

Breakfast is included, other meals are available with an additional cost. Please let us know ahead of time. It is possible to hire a naturalist guide and horse back ridding. All these services are payed in cash.

There is a daily public bus service, except Sundays, to a nearby village, 3 kms. Taxi is also available.

One can also participate in the voluntary hands-on sustainable practices, which are Margas and Chemas way of life. Such as gardening, reforestation and horse care.

For more than 2 persons, please contact us for special prices.

We spent a wonderful time at Chema y Margas place. It was very relaxing and we learnt a lot from Chema, who has a bride knowledge about the nature and social culture. And Marga impressed us with her cooking. Chema gave us a tour in his fog forest and showed us also the waterfalls. We enjoyed it very much. Both are very nice and helpful. I can highly recommend this place especially if you would like to be outside of the touristic spots.

Chema and Marga were amazing hosts, and their home is absolutely stunning. It was such an amazing and unique experience to live with them for several days and learn about their permaculture and sustainability model. Their home is beautifully built through models of sacred geometry and holds the most wonderful energy. Marga cooked all of our meals, and they were beyond anything we could have expected. She has a true gift with cooking, and used all authentic costa rican ingredients- most of which came from their own gardens! Chema and Marga were kind, helpful, and wonderful hosts. It is a true gift to experience their way of life!

A taste of paradise on earth! Marga and Chema provide a very clean, comfortable, and relaxed mountain retreat. They've done an incredible job of making their chunk of land a nature lover's dream. As a Holistic Nutritionist I often have to be flexible with what I eat when traveling. Thanks to Marga's marcrobiotic cooking, I maintained my sense of energy and health during the whole trip. Also, typically on travels you end up feeling hungry often, but these meals were generous and plentiful so that was never the case. Chema is very hospitable and shares tons of interesting wisdom, insights, and stories. We feel as though we've gained a years worth of education in our short trip. There are some beautiful hikes and waterfalls around their home which make for fun daytime activities. We also did the horseback riding and massage treatment and thoroughly enjoyed both. Cost of accommodation and food is very fair. As many have said, it is a bit of a drive to get up and down from the mountain so plan your activities accordingly. An amazing experience with some wonderful people!
