I stayed for 2 weeks at the eco village and I loved my time here! It felt like such a unique and inspiring place, a place I will never forget! If you are interested in sustainability and nature and would love to experience life in the jungle, away from the rushed life, this is your chance! I learned a lot during my stay and I felt like I had the ultimate Costa Rica experience. Waking up with bird and money sounds, walking with the dogs to the most beautiful beaches and rivers, coming home to the most delicious fresh meals from the best chef Rebe. I would definitely recommend this place!!

My stay at the eco village was wonderful. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. I'm grateful for getting to be a part of the eco village family, Rob and Rebe are the most caring hosts any volunteer could ever ask for. The farm is beautiful and cozy, being surrounded by wildlife. I felt like home when being there. Working hours are more than fair and tasks that need to be done vary a lot, which means you'll always be learning something new and never get bored. The way they live at Finca is incredibly sustainable and in harmony with nature — I found it very inspiring.

I loved being close to the beach and Rob and Rebe were great hosts! The food and accommodations were amazing! Worldpackers lists that the daily fee is $10 a day when it is actually $30. I personally believe that $30 is too high especially when we are also working. The fee goes directly into the farm as soon as you pay even though I was under the impression the fee is for food and accommodations. Many of the tasks are related to the hosts personal projects such as cleaning air bnbs and I would have loved more focus on sustainability and the farm. Overall I 100% recommended this experience!!

OMGGGG, amazing experience: I discovered several passions on which I will continue to invest myself at home. Rebe cooks so well you Will not believe it! The living environment is really pleasant: we work in the morning and in the afternoon we are free: beach, hammock, rummikube? I felt really good whether it was with Rob and Rebe, or the other volunteers. I'm shure i Will come back to the farm! (I just removed a star because the internet was not working very well, it's not the most important, but I really needed it) Bon voyage ♥️

Its a beautiful place surrounded by Nature. its close to the beach and Rebe is cooking amazing vegan/vegetarian food twice a day. the tasks are doable and you only work 4 hours a day. but its also flexible. you have to pay an amount of 30 dollars a day, wich is for food and accomandation. its worth it, when you wanna have a clean and safe space for your trip.
