Farmstay Experience

 Immerse yourself into the life of tropical homesteading.

Enjoy clean air, fresh water, vital foods, and friendly hosts. 

Visit us for an engaging and educational adventure.

   The Fruition Center for Holistic Ecology, offers expansive, experiential learning opportunities within a roots permaculture community for travelers looking for an adventure off the beaten path.  Explore what it takes to establish an ecologically designed homestead in the mountains of Costa Rica and get a chance to experience a generative lifestyle focused on community living and ecological health.  The Fruition Center nourishes integral, socially responsible eco-tourism through supporting our local village and giving travelers a chance to get hands-on knowledge of rural sustainability.  Guests can get involved in homesteading projects, explore the local area, meet neighbors, join in on community meals, or simply relax and soak up the beautiful vistas.



From the garden to the kitchen, community meals are at the heart of the farmstay experience.  Guests can choose to help out with cooking or relax until they hear the gong which beckons people to eat.  The community farmstay experience can be as interactive or restful as a guest would like, adding to the dynamic potential of each visit.

  Whether traveling with a backpack, a suitcase, or a family, the Fruition Center has a wide range of accommodations to meet the needs of visitors.
