Farewell to September with a Black Moon in our Amazing Southern Zone of Costa Rica

​We have a somewhat unusual event happening this Friday nite, September 30th ... it's called a "Black Moon" which is the second New Moon in a month.

For more astrological fun, please see Marguerite's Astrology page here.

Thanks for all the updates ... keep 'em coming. Best to keep our site as up to date as ever. And yes, house rentals are still much needed.

We are very fortunate to be away from all the ash & smoke from the Turrialba Volcano this week ... covering much of the San Jose area and causing many flights to be cancelled or delayed from Juan Santamaria Airport. Good idea to check the airport site here if you are travelling or have someone coming.

Quick border run this Tuesday ... share ride in private taxi. Write here at or talk to us at Colibri's Corner.

This Saturday at 1:30pm will be a free Kundalini Yoga Course ... please see Events page for more information.

You are probably familiar with the term sustainability, and while sustaining ourselves is a great goal, we want to move beyond that and create a system that regenerates; providing huge amounts of abundance for us and future generations.

We are building a model that is the first here in Costa Rica and will consist of 5 turn key homesteads that together will create a Regenerative Neighborhood.

Imagine waking up to the symphony of the naturaleza in a valley nestled in the mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Costa Ballena. You have coffee plantation tours, hiking to local waterfalls, Spanish classes while dining with local campesino familes, bird watching, clean air & water, ATV Tours, fresh talapia raised organically and more all at your disposal on any given day of the week. Essentially I am a link between the Campesino and Expat worlds here in the Southern Zone. In our community, which intersects the calle publica from Uvita that runs from the coast all the way to San Isidro, we have a variety of rentals available ranging from rustic to modern to please a diverse crowd with diverse needs, short or long term. When you get in touch I will direct you to various social media to further illuminate the topic. Thank you for the attention and we hope to hear from you!
