The SpaceHello Friends!
La Gran Vista, located just outside San Isidro de General in South Pacific Costa Rica, is an Environmental Conservation Project where students, volunteers, and visitors can stay a few nights to relax and enjoy the views or for money saving options and the want to learn how a tropical organic farm functions, visitors can help out on the farm for a cheaper price. We are more than just an eco-lodge, we are also an Educational Institute where individuals can learn how to milk a cow, harvest a mango tree, or use medicinal herbs whether in a large group or solo. La Gran Vista gives everyone an opportunity to learn about life at its most basic form and exist in a fully sustainable community. The views of the surrounding mountains and valleys are what give you the complete La Gran Vista experience.
We are happy to receive travellers, volunteers, student groups, families, and environmental interns from abroad. In addition, eco-tourism organizations send groups of volunteers to La Gran Vista every year to participate in the project.
We offer opportunities for undergraduate groups, ASB, graduate students, and researchers to pursue specific interests or field work pertaining to sustainability and organic farming for those who are interested. Students looking to pursue a career in sustainability will have the opportunity to have practical experience that will be valuable to their future endeavors.
We believe that the best way to preserve our Planet is for everyone to be active and lend a helping hand to Mother Nature. The problems are right in front of us, from greenhouse gases to massive landfills, pesticides in our food, and unclean drinking water, making it EVERYONE’S responsibility to wake up and live a more responsible life.
We cannot change the world in a day, but if we all do our part we can change the course of history. So start today and join us in our attempt to create a more sustainable future.
Thanks for your help and please contact us for more information about La Gran Vista. We are looking for partnerships. We can recieve groups of up to 30 guests.
