This property is 42.5 pristine acres and includes 2 houses, 7 guest rooms, dining hall, yoga rancho, swimming pool, spa, greenhouse, solar installation, 2 vehicles, and more. Capacity is 25.

The neighborhood boasts the best waterfalls in Costa Rica, including Nayaca, Diamante, and smaller jewels like Peace falls, Jewel of the Sun, and the Goddess falls.

Plunge into these revitalizing waters and let your body and spirit be cleansed.
Sustainable & Eco-Friendly
This property is aligned to be sustainable and independent, while not feeling like an off-grid establishment. For food, you have all of the fruit orchards, greenhouse, and root vegetable gardens. We make our own soil through composting. Water is harnessed from 2 natural springs. The solar installation is presently tied to the grid, but you can move it over to batteries. The mine provides us with the material we need to maintain our road. It is a remarkable way to live!
Move-In Ready Business Opportunity
The sale includes the fully established, turn-key, move-in ready, retreat center, hotel, lifestyle business. Whatever you want to make of it, you can start right away!
The owners have spent the past 12 years using this space as a vegan, natural healing retreat center, called Farm of Life. They have offered all-inclusive, formal retreats during the dry season (January - April), and the remainder of the time we operate like a hotel where guests make reservations as they like, a-la-carte.
There are multiple business opportunities here. Aside from wellness, yoga, and eco-tourism, you can continue to operate it as a retreat-resort-hotel, formal or informal. Live on-sight or manage it from abroad. Or, morph this property into an intentional community, as a spiritual- co-living ashram, agricultural business, educational facility, live-play-work online scenario, or any other creative endeavor that you want to call forward.
There is plenty of available space for expansion too. You can build more homes, guest cabins, a maloca, game room, meeting room - whatever is the best fit for your business model.
