Looking from above, the jungle of Costa Rica looks just like a magical carpet, singing with the voices of a thousand birds and filled with exotic floral fragrances. Few manage to climb up to the cloud level to build an abode for visitors that are thirsting for peace and healing effects of the mountains. But it is exactly what the kind-hearted and energetic owners of the «Farm of Life» center did. Brian and Jody (a couple from America) have just recently opened their lodge in the mountains. It’s located near the coastal town of Dominical, known internationally as a surfer town. «Farm of Life» is a small center built with love for, and in cooperation with nature. Elegant bungalows sitting on edge of the mountain are constructed from environmentally friendly materials, and in addition to the breathtaking views, have all the necessary amenities.
The yoga studio is located at the summit, so classes are held literally “on top of the world”. The center also has a restaurant with an open terrace, a kitchen where you can prepare your own meals, and a small fruit and vegetable garden. A spring flows right from the ground and into two pools, surrounded by flowers and teak trees.
You will have a chance to make delicious fruit shakes at the farm’s kitchen, using anything from local exotics to everyone’s favorites like pineapple, papaya, mango and lychee. Guests of the center will have the perfect opportunity to go on a fruit and veggie diet for a while.
The chef (an expert in raw eating) will prepare specialized, healing dishes from the freshest ingredients, presented in the most exquisite way. That’s why cleansing your organism will become a royal experience at this farm.
A few tourist attractions located nearby deserve to be mentioned as well. There are a few waterfalls, surrounded by nature that looks like it came straight from the movie “Avatar”. Neighboring properties are peppered with trails that you can follow all day, running through the jungle and along the mountain slopes. The close proximity of the ocean and other centers nearby allows the guests to make day trips to the beach.
All in all, this place can undoubtedly be considered the pearl of Costa Rica that has not yet been reached by the numerous tourists. But the best thing, probably, is the air of natural abundance, well-being and caring attention that truly is sincere. Just a few days spent at the Farm of Life will fill you with energy, health and beauty.
