About the Event
Welcome to Finca Las Hormigas, a sustainable organic farm and retreat center located in the beautiful tropical region of Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica.
We offer a range of unique and transformative retreats throughout the year, each designed to nourish the mind, body, and spirit while connecting with nature.
Our retreats are carefully crafted to provide a holistic experience, incorporating yoga, meditation, organic food, and other wellness practices.
We believe that by immersing ourselves in nature and taking time for self-reflection, we can discover new insights and cultivate a deeper sense of well-being.
Whether you're seeking a rejuvenating yoga retreat, a transformative plant medicine journey, or a tailored experience for your group, we invite you to join us at Finca Las Hormigas. Our experienced team is dedicated to creating a safe and supportive environment for your personal growth and transformation. We look forward to sharing this beautiful corner of Costa Rica with you.
During your stay at Finca Las Hormigas, you will receive a holistic experience that combines learning, community-building, and immersion in the natural world. Here's what's included in the program
This experience would not be the same
if you don't get to farm life yourself.
You will stay in a rustic yet very comfortable bungalow, where you have the option to share a bungalow with other 3 wonderful people, or a private bungalow.
All of our handcrafted bungalows are fully equipped with everything you need to feel at home, including clean sheets, warm blankets, comfortable pillows, and towels.
Our accommodation facilities include shared outdoor showers and composting toilets, which offer an authentic and sustainable farm experience.
We provide 3 delicious, vegetarian meals each day.
Our meals are made with natural, oganic ingredients, many of which come directly from our farm.
You'll attend daily classes that cover the fundamentals of
permaculture, ecology, farm systems, soil, and more.
Our expert instructors will share their knowledge and experience with you, providing you
with a solid foundation.
We believe that experiential learning is the best way to learn, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to apply what you've learned during the classes.
You'll work alongside our expert staff, gaining practical experience in tropical farming techniques.
Daily yoga and meditation
Start your day with a relaxing yoga or meditation session to prepare your body and mind for the day ahead
Cultural field trips
To balance the farm life, we'll take you on a couple of cultural field trips to experience the vibrant local community and the beauty of our beach town.
Throughout your stay, you'll have a dedicated farm staff member who will be available
to support you and answer your questions.
We've designed this program to give you a deep and meaningful experience of permaculture and farm life
in the tropics. We can't wait to share it with you!
