We welcome you to our farm on the foot of the mountain! It is a former poisoned banana plantation that we brought back to life. Today it’s bustling with plants and animals. The skies are now filled with many species of endemic birds during the day and battalions of fireflies at night. The jungle is full of lizards and wild cats and reptiles and the ponds are full of fish. Fruit trees as well as native trees, which do not bear any fruit of economic value, have been allowed to flourish and occupy 80% of the land. It is perfect in case you are looking for something different and want to escape from the pace of the city.

We provide you with home cooked meals out of locally sourced and mostly organic ingredients served with the most delicious biodynamic rice on a banana leaf plate. The menu always changes according to what is available. Sometimes is fresh organically raised fish from the farms fishpond, sometimes its organic banana heart in fresh coconut milk. We also serve roasted meat, salads, curries, soups, noodles, delicious pizzas out of our oven, freshly baked bread with sesame butter and wild honey.

You can help on the farm if you wish, make a hike or just relax at your cottage. Depending on which cottage you choose, you will have all the basic comforts except for air-conditioning, television and hot water.

Meet Teresita and Her Family

Member since: November 2014

Hi my name is Teresita Bahala. This is our farm built by the family when we decided to leave behind the chaos of the city and build our own sanctuary. We needed two decades to turn a logged down, chemically poisoned banana plantation back into a jungle teeming with life and black healthy soil. The land was blessed with freshwater springs, which allowed us to begin natural farming. The sound of a beautiful white water river echoes in the air and one cannot put a price on the refreshing feeling of bathing in its cool water. Twenty years has allowed for life to return in abundance. I would love to invite you to stay at this peaceful tropical jungle paradise.
