What should I know before I come?
We live at the top of a large hill overlooking the Pacific. It is an intense, 15 minute uphill walk up a steep dirt road. Anyone interested in visiting and staying with us should be fit enough to do the walk on a daily basis.
Second, we are committed to sustainable living and that includes composting toilets. Be comfortable with this kind of thing 😉
Where is the nearest Internet and phone?
Though we purposely don’t have internet, land lines, or cell service on the farm, wifi is only a 10 minute walk away. There are several spots on the beach where you can connect and enjoy a smoothie. Cost is usually 750 Colones/Hr. Calling outside the country is usually always best done through Skype, Facetime, WhatsAp, etc. For those who are in the country for a bit longer and have an unlocked phone, we recommend purchasing a Costa Rican cell phone chip (Kolbi is our service provider) at the airport and prepaying for your phone service.
Can I receive mail?
There is no mail service.
Do I need a visa?
Depends on your country. Check with your consulate.
Can I smoke?
You can smoke out on the road, downwind from the main house.
Can I drink alcohol?
You are welcome to enjoy some wine with dinner, or drink down at the beach or at a local bar. We do, however, ask that you refrain from bringing hard liquor to the farm and no drinking is allowed near the main house or yoga space. In general we are trying to encourage a healthy, rejuvenating atmosphere, so please use your best judgment.
How far away is the beach?
A 10 minute walk downhill.
