Sustainable Living in Paradise
Finca Siempre Verde is owned by a family who opens their doors to visitors with the intention to show their love for the land and the respect for their community. For this reason, we want our visitors to come with intentions of learning and preserving the authenticity of our rural community.
Whether you are a guest or a volunteer, we want you to enjoy your visit to Costa Rica. We strive to provide every visitor at Finca Siempre Verde with a rewarding and enriching experience. The following provides information about the accommodations available at Finca Siempre Verde. Let us know if you have any questions!
Guests, volunteers, and interns at Finca Siempre Verde live in a beautiful open-air building in the middle of the tropical forest at the incredible Siempre Verde Lodge. It is our newest building and is one of the most sustainable buildings on the farm. It was designed and built by Marcos Garcia using teak wood scraps.
There are many large corporate teak plantations in the area that have leftover wood because they are not of diameters suitable for sale. We intervene and collect this wood for our buildings to avoid the cutting of more trees. The building is divided into two floors. Each floor has five bunkbeds and a private room with a double bed. The structure also has a large area for yoga, which occupies a 72 square meters platform. The yoga deck is on the second floor so it is well ventilated and an excellent location for bird watching.
Volunteers at Finca Siempre Verde will live our beautiful Siempre Verde Lodge, which is our newest building. We started building the Siempre Verde Lodge in 2012. It has a lot of room to host people, a library, a relaxing area, and a yoga platform that also functions as a classroom. It was built with local materials and a lot of teak wood which was leftover wood from an old plantation. This makes our lodge one of the most sustainable buildings in the area.
We also have a cabaña located in our primary forest. This is a perfect place for those who truly want to have a close contact with the forest and all the life that inhabits. It’s location is the perfect place for a night hike and for ending your day with the melodies of hundreds of insects and nocturnal animals such as frogs, crickets etc. At the cabañas we only use candlelight each night.
At Finca Siempre Verde, we choose to live in such a way that allows us to be in harmony with the natural environment rather than alter it to suit our exact needs.
