Hi! my name is Alba, Im 41, originally from Spain, but I have spent a few years in Costa Rica already. A few years ago I quit my previous job in my homecountry and came to Costa Rica with some savings to start a new way of life. Now I live in this beautiful and secluded spot between the mountains which is a 9Ha property farm situated in a valley sorrounded by secondary and primary forest and the beautiful river Jicotea. Here, Im starting a sustainable permaculture project with my babygirl, my dogs, cat and chickens! Untill now we have been focused in creating our veggie garden, constructing a spring water captation, a workshop building with a comunal área and kitchen and a cabin in the forest where to host volunteers and other colaborators for the project. I live here sharing the space with groups of 5-6 volunteers at the time , that we can receive from Monday to Friday up untill 4pm .

My time at Finca La Quimera was so incredible, I so wish I could have stayed longer than 2 weeks. The farm itself is stunning. It is located in the countryside with lush vegetation. I learned alot about how to recycle our waste into resources and how to provide for ourselves in harmony with the land. Alba is the most patient and understanding individual. I am so inspired by her openness to understand and treat all situations with kindness.

We can’t put into words nor have the ability to write a short description about how incredible our time at Albas farm truly was. Alba is one of the most badass, loving and welcoming people you will ever meet. You absolutely become family when you arrive at the farm, if you get accepted to this opportunity you have won the lottery in our opinion. Apply here if you want to experience what it feels like to be alive and at home in nature. We cannot thank you enough Alba and we can’t wait to come back and see what you and the other volunteers create and grow in the meantime.

Thanks so much Alba to had the opportunity to work, stay, experience your beautiful Finca!!
I had a short time there and I would recommend to stay for longer than 2 weeks to learn and adapt to the Farm and to the environment.
I can say that Alba and her project from Permaculture is amazing and that you can get a lot of knowledge with you about sustainability.
I wish Alba and her Bebecita all the best and I am so grateful to been there!

Alba's farm is a truly magical place! This experience's all I ever could've asked for and more. The work's fun and rewarding, and everything is explained so well that it's no problem even with no prior experience. I also loved the community life, living and cooking together with the other volunteers, who're all wonderful! Not to mention living in the midst of gorgeous nature and learning everyday.
Alba, you're a constant inspiration, running the farm with so much knowledge and expertise as well as creating such an accepting and loving space. Lots of love to you, Aura, Baco, Menta and Anis!❤️

This was my first experience with Worldpackers and I really enjoyed working on the farm! The place is incredible and Alba is a really caring host and I learned a lot form her

I worked together with six volunteers and they were all really fun and kind. The work we did was different every day, so that was really nice.

So overall, I really liked the experience and would recommend it to everyone.
