Farm Tours Permaculture

Join us for a Permaculture Farm Tour at Rancho Delicioso, in Delicias, Cóbano. Delicias is located halfway between Santa Teresa/Malpais and Montezuma, in the middle of the Southern Nicoya Peninsula.

Learn about the systems and plants we’re using to live on a permaculture farm. We grow diverse crops and raise animals in a tropical environment while receiving groups monthly to live sustainably in a healthy environment.

This farm tour is suitable for kids, farmers, travelers, bloggers, photographers, and corporate executives. All are welcome! It’s especially ideal if you’re considering moving to the area and want to know how to “green” your lifestyle. You’ll have the chance to try, smell and appreciate the colors, aromas, and flavors of nature.

Price: $30 per person
