Punta Mona, on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, close to the border of Panama, is an 85 acre, off-the-grid, beach family-owned environmental education center, botanical collection, permaculture farm and eco-lodge, dedicated to sustainable ways of living. At Punta Mona Permaculture Center, Costa Rica, every moment is breathtaking and connected. We wake with the sun, we breathe with the sounds, we meditate in this powerfully grounding space. Come and live close to the earth as you feed your soul with blue clay mud baths, freshly picked gourmet superfoods, and cleansing daily swims. At Punta Mona we practice and learn in the open air, drawing constantly from the elements of the Earth.
Punta Mona immerses us in the power of community and the beauty of living a simple, intentional life. The mission of the center is to provide, through the principles and practice of Permaculture and organic lifestyle, an alternative to the destructive land use practices, loss of cultural heritage and community, depletion of our natural resources, decimation of biodiversity and rampant wastefulness taking place throughout Costa Rica and the world. At Punta Mona we grow most of our own food organically, which includes hundreds of species of tropical fruits, vegetables, herbs, medicinal plants as well as bamboo and extensive native hardwood reforestation, use eco-technologies, create a sense of community and are dedicated to educating learners of all ages and from all walks of life.
Come and grow yourself in this incredible environment and follow your heart to la Pura Vida.
