La Ecovilla

Come and live in Costa Rica, one of the most beautiful countries in the world, with a modern capital city, reliable utility service, clean water, lush rain forests, long stretches of deserted tropical beaches, fun beach towns, quaint rural villages, bustling cities, cool mountain getaways, and pristine lake regions.

Our Location

We are located in the heart of Costa Rica’s fruit growing region with amazing weather, an hour from San Jose, 45 minutes from the airport, and less than 30 minutes from the beach.

Shared Spaces

Community Center & Kitchen

Our community center, known as the Rancho, is a large open-air building made of teak and thatch. It has open wifi internet, electricity, bathrooms, a full kitchen, tables & chairs, and a couple hammocks.

Yoga & Movement Space

Our community center has a lovely teak & thatch yoga and movement studio open to all community members

Craft & Hobby Spaces

We have two small classrooms that can be used for activities like playing music, making crafts, and having meetings

Community School

We own and operate a community school for our children based on connection with nature and the idea that the children’s interests are the best educational guides.

Multipurpose Court La Ecovilla

Multi-use Court

Our community multi-use court is spacious and perfect for a fun time for our community members to play Soccer, Basketball, Pickleball and Volleyball etc

Chlorine-free Pool

Our warmed pool is ultra-low chemical: We utilize ozone, UV lights and saltwater to mantain it. The pool is designed for doing laps and has a kiddie pool on one end for relaxing

Our River

We are located on the beautiful Rio Machuca. The water quality is perfect, and it is surrounded by many old-growth trees and is a wildlife corridor of great value. Howler monkeys regularly use it to travel up and down the river. It’s great for swimming, rock-jumping, and cooling off in the summer.

Tilapia Ponds

The community contains 14 ponds, and many of them are stocked with Tilapia fish that we harvest regularly and share among the community.

Organic Permaculture Gardens

We hope to grow the majority of our food from our organic permaculture gardens. The property is already home to hundreds of fruit trees, medicinal plants and vegetables, and every Monday morning each community member gets a share of the weekly garden harvest.
