This is the Deal

becoming a (part-time) conscious drop-out

20 years ago i moved from stressful and cold Germany to tranquil tropical Costa Rica to live a more happy and healthy life.

Hidden in a tropical food forest living and working with like-minded people, sharing ideas and experience, discovering nature and its gifts.

Creating a participative educational retreat for simple healthy living ...
A school for life, practicing Permaculture, healing arts, non violent communication ...



welcome to live a nature lifestyle
diagonal from Uvita waterfalls, overlooking the ocean, we live in an open wooden two story building in the middle of an organic Permaculture forest garden.
Besides the straight volunteer options explained below, we offer 2 rooms and other options for people on less-to-non working holidays.
A smaller double bed room with private bath (hot shower)for one or 2 people and a bigger double bed room with private bath (hot shower) for one or two people.
Both are in the second floor with a Yoga deck front , where we can hang up to 7 hammocks.
Below is space for another 5. (If you do not bring yours, we have some.)
In the basement is a kitchen with a fridge, stove and blender.
We have internet per wifi/WLAN (a computer for emergency only), a washing machine, a great outdoor shower and open space.
Close by is a roofed open hammock space for 6+ hammocks with a simple outdoor kitchen with a wood fire stove.
A open shower and composting toilets are there too.
Much camp space in the gardens is available (If you do not bring a tent we have a small and a huge one.)
Welcome to live in nature.
We live in a tranquil and safe area just 12 walking minutes from town, where you can find supermarkets, banks, shops, tourist office, restaurants, internet cafes, doctors, gas station, rent a car and all you need.
Right there is also the bus stop for busses to San Jose, San Isidro and boarder.
Uvita in general and we are very easy to find, with public and private transports.

What Else

Since we are located just outside of a small but colorful party and beach town, depending on the season we experience visitors in a more party mood than in a straight volunteer mood.
Therefor we offer additionally to our straight volunteer options, help-and-stay options with a partly financial contribution.

Our straight volunteers are working 5 days 8 hours in exchange for stay and food.

If you take care of your own food, we ask for your help only 4 hours a day.

- Smokers allowed

+ Internet Access

- Have animals/pets
