Caretakers Wanted:

Hi All . . . this is Suzanna from Finca Amrta. I am looking for a person or a couple that would love to house sit for me starting around the 20th of July until the 20th of August or possibly until the 7th of September.

I am looking for someone who loves dogs and animals and has a keen interest in gardening.

You will not be alone on the farm . . . however you will be responsible for keeping my green house watered and cared for as well as feeding my dogs and chickens daily.

If there are volunteers on the farm at that time you will be interacting with them.

If you are interested please contact me at: or on

WhatsApp +506 8367 7687.

You can also call me directly on my home phone: 2770-4185.

I have no doubt there is someone or some couple that will be perfect for this opportunity. If you have never been to Finca Amrta . . . you will be in awe of the beauty that sounds us.

May your life be filled with joy.

Seeking a caretaker who will honor and help to heal our relationship with the Earth

Do you appreciate the benefits of organic gardening practices? Can you share the vision of a replanting native species, growing a food forest and taking only what we need, with gratitude?

We are seeking a seasonal caretaker(s) to live on our property, eat from and grow our gardens, and care for our lovely dog, “Manga”. Ideally you are already living in the Platanillo/Tinamastes area, and you have your own vehicle.

The schedule varies a little bit, but in general, you would be living on the property for 3 months, have 2-3 months off, and then come back for 3 months. This could be a multi-year position for the right person or couple.
