If you are concerned with the environment as we are, and feel like doing something about it - you may want to contribute by planting one or more trees on one of our properties. The experience of planting something can be very healing, and you may come back later to see the fruits of your labor. Fruit and other kind of trees are available at the wonderful vivero in Ochojal! Ask for Adrien who speaks some English. They have banana and other fruit trees under 10$. You may want to bring Gumercindo to help in your selection and transport. Make sure not to plant high trees next to existing structures as they might fall onto them in rainy season. For every tree that you plant, we will contribute $5 to the local school. Even if you dont want to plant a tree, we recommend you going to the Vivero in Ochijal as you may learn a lot about the tropical fauna down here.
Our pool and pool house located between our two houses – the River House (www.riverhouseuvita.com) and the Casa Verde is an oasis for young and old. The lounge sofas and hammocks invite for relaxation, reading or conversations about nature or philosophy. The ping pong table and BBQ space allows for gatherings and socializing. There is enough room still for some morning yoga sessions or meditation. The pool contains a saltwater filtering system rather than chlorine, which is soft on your skin and eyes. There are jasmine flowers planted around the pool, which give a unique smell during certain times of the day and seasons. If you think that you are smelling the famous Channel perfume, than look for the two tall trees located next to the pool house and on the path towards the pool house coming from the River House. These trees are Ylang trees from which the channel parfume uses its ingredients. Also – keep in mind that we can help you organize a massage or beauty treatment right by the pool! Sylvia’s concierge service can get you set-up anytime.
Carlos Fallas owns a US accredited Spanish school. He gives private Spanish lessons at the Casa Verde for very reasonable prices. If you are interested, then let us know and we can connect you. Above a picture of him with his mom and little sister. BTW - he also gives great medical plant & coffee tours on his family's finca. Its quite an interesting thing to do if you want to get to know the real Costa Rica.

I first came to Costa Rica in 1998. I fell in love with the country right away for so many reasons. I have been coming, living and unfortunately never staying off and on since.
