Our finca is a 15 hectare mixed-use farm in the low mountains on the western edge of the Central Plateau. Most of the farm is habitat, with small areas of organic crops...corn, beans, fruits, coffee...and a main house with 3 smaller rental houses. The smaller houses are usually rented to couples escaping the Frozen North and graduate students and staff at the nearby University for Peace. There's lots of birding, monkeys all over the place. Tropical stuff.

We're looking for someone(s) to help with some maintenance and cleaning of the houses before we travel in mid-February. Our dates are January 12 to January 27, somewhat flexible (1-2 days) on each end.

The work is some cleaning of the houses and general minor repairs (screen-fixing, sanding and oiling of some wood, e.g.) as the finca is listed for sale. Nothing too arduous, but trouble-shooting on the finca is feast or famine.

Housing is usually a small furnished casita. It's ideal for a couple; not a party... more inside

We are a local Costa Rican family living on a small organic farm. We are in the process of creating a sustainable living susituation by utilizing permaculture techniques, protecting the forrest that surrounds us, and participating in our local economy.

10 acres are dedicated to chemical-free agriculture demonstrating functioning agroforestry and permaculture. Water is plentiful here, thanks to abundant rainfall and the waterfalls of the property. The soil is diverse while rich in minerals is also fairly acidic.
Over the past several years, we are recovering this soil by regularly hand tilling the earth and fertilizing with rich compost produced onsite, including companion plants, and a mixture we make from microorganisms gathered in the forest. We are beyond organic; we are chemical free.Our dedication to chemical-free agriculture extends to our fruits and vegetables.The seeds give birth to a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, spices and medicinal plants. and more.

Greetings!
(This is an opportunity for 1 person only please;)
8 km north of Sámara near a small village (pop 150) called Esterones, my property sits on a hill in the jungle about 12 minutes walk from that village. You will find a small supermarket, a restaurant and a tiny hardware store(they don't have WIFI;). Walk a bit further and you will find 3 world class beaches. It's about an hour walk to Sámara. The closest bus stop is about 45min walk with only occasional service but ‘hitchhiking’ is perfectly normal mode of transportation here. This is a chance to get to know a special part of Costa Rica, I've been in love with this area and its people for 20 years. I've also been a helper for the past 10 years in Peru, Italy, Japan, Australia, France, Portugal, Kenya, Ireland...and I dig it!
I normally work my land from Nov-Feb and May-July. I travel the rest of the time.
I have a small plot of land, 10.900mt2, but I only cultivate about a fifth of it and the rest is natural jungle w... more inside
