Here is what a previous guest and Acupuncture client has to say about his three week stay with us:


from France

Deepa what can i say…. I’ve had such à wonderful experience at your place, the best way to get used to the Costa Rican lifestyle for the beginning of my travels. I’m so grateful to have lived this, what a remote place, away from civilization and in a deep connection with nature. I have felt  so much good energy here. I love your way of thinking, I especially remember you saying ” another day in paradise” in the morning and that True, I really felt it every morning. The little walks in the forest were amazing !! I really think that the rivers and waterfalls near your place are the best that I have ever seen. The acupuncture treatment was amazing, the more we do sessions the more good i feel. I really follow what you told me about the breathing and the colors of the jungle that i had to imagine go in my body. I definitely will remember that. I feel more confident and more powerful since we’ve done the treatment  I have felt the “chi” and you allow me to reconnect with my long-forgotten body. You’re such à good person and you really know how to make people comfortable, you definitely understand how volunteerism works and it really felt good to give my time and energy to your place. You allow people to live a typical life of the countryside of Costa Rica. And that’s wonderful.

Thanks for everything Deepa,
