Deepa is the heart of Luz Del Corazon.

Message from our Founder

I am delighted to have the opportunity to share with you the story of how I became fascinated with Costa Rica and why I founded this organization. It all started in 7th grade when I was tasked with researching another country for a social studies project. As I dove into my research, my teacher told me about Costa Rica, and I was instantly captivated by its natural beauty, vibrant culture, and commitment to sustainability.

Fast forward to 2008, when I left my home in the mountains Santa Cruz, California, and made my way to this land that had captured my imagination so many years before. Since then, I have worked tirelessly to nurture this land and create a thriving community that values sustainability, biodiversity, and social responsibility.

Our organization is the culmination of my passion for Costa Rica and my commitment to making a difference in the world. Through our work, we aim to preserve the natural wonders of this country, while also empowering individuals and local communities while promoting sustainable tourism.

I look forward to working with all of you to achieve our shared vision for a healthy, sustainable and equitable future.

Grow with Us

Philosophies for Investment Opportunities

Our philosophy is based on a deep respect for the natural world and a commitment to sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical practices. We strive to cultivate a culture of care, empathy, and compassion, where everyone is valued and respected. We believe that by working together, we can create a more just and equitable world, where everyone has access to healthy food, clean water, and a safe environment. We believe in the importance of education, research, and innovation, and we are committed to advancing the field of sustainable agriculture. At Luz Del Corazo, we believe that by living in harmony with nature, we can create a better future for ourselves and for generations to come.

Strong Land Relationships

We strive to exemplify a gentler, more respectful relationship with the land. Ranging from reducing impact on the land through organic regenerative agricultural systems, alternative energy sources, and sharing knowledge and tools,  thus encouraging community while eliminating duplication and wate. For many, the relationship with the land is more spiritual, delving into the inter-connectivity of  all life and consciousness. As Luz del Corazon holds over 180 acres of pristine rainforest, we have many opportunities to protect, preserve, explore and learn about the land, the rainforest  and its natural inhabitants. We can create our own individual paradise on our homesite, and when we feel like being around others we have the community gardens, orchards, meditation garden and community center to connect with others.

Economic Security

There is an ever increasing threat of global economic  collapse, making living in Cities and other artificial environments less stable.  Luz del Corazon will be self sustaining, producing its own food, power and water.  The land itself is so abundant that we have economic security living on a vital productive parcel on this earth, especially with the addition of the organic tropical fruit orchards and gardens.

Strong Community Relationships

Wealth is measured in strong relationships with others in community and yields security, safety, and spiritual connection. Developing equitable, inclusive forums for effective communication and conflict transformation is one aspect of our community-building process. We also meet regularly with local government officials to discuss how we can work together to improve life for area residents.

Holistic and Natural Care

Luz del Corazon Farm will be building an in-patient Acupuncture Center, and an Assisted Living and Hospice Residential Center, incorporating principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Western Medicine with a deep respect for nature. This will be an innovative place where individuals are allowed to live as they desire, with partners and pets. Though there are a growing number of intentional, sustainable communities being developed in Costa Rica, this possibly will be the first one with an integrative residential health care setting in this geographical area.

As agents of change, we are committed to reverence and respect for all of creation via our foundations in non-violence; equality; wholism; effective communication and conflict transformation; a deep connection with the land; learning and capacity for personal development; building a sense of security, self-sufficiency, belonging, and a respect for differences.

Hand-to-Hand Support

Here’s what our volunteers have to say:

A great experience on the finca overall! It was a quiet time (semana santa) when I was there but perfect to find some peace and spend time in nature, seeing lots of animals and perfect sunset clouds over the mountains every evening. Deepa and the volunteers spent many great moments working and just hanging out.



We had an amazing experience at the finca! We stayed there for three weeks, but we would have loved to stay even longer. There are many different things to do. We worked both in the fields (harvesting frijoles, planting tomatoes, and flowers) and in wood construction (built our own chairs from scratch). The work was both difficult but rewarding, and we had still had a lot of free time.

The accommodation was very nice. The food provided was great (with eggs, beans, and fruits from the farm) and the kitchen is well-equipped.

The farm is huge and is surrounded by jungle that belongs to the Rincon de la Vieja national park with a lot of animals, vegetation, and waterfalls.

We highly recommend this work-away if you want to learn about organic agriculture and bio-construction and be surrounded by nature in a beautiful region of Costa Rica! It was also a great opportunity to meet local people!

Lea & Timothée


I stayed for two weeks on the farm and worked mostly in carpentry and a bit of tree-planting. José supervised me in construction, which was truly an interesting experience. He helped me to improve my Spanish as well.

I enjoyed staying in a remote place like this, hanging out with other backpackers and locals, exploring the nature around, birdwatching, and cooking with the fruits and vegetables from the farm.

I would totally recommend it and hope to return one day!
