Do you dream of leaving it all behind, and living off the land? Can you imagine: swapping your daily commute through traffic, for a weekly boat trip to the farmer’s market? Guaranteed dolphin sightings included from this tropical Organic Farm.



Out of Finca Tranquila’s 7 Hectares, 5.9 are Right of Posession and 1.1 is Titled.  The 4 farmed hectares are towards the water front, and the other 3 are Rain Forest Canopy converting Carbon into fresh air.

The property has more than enough access to fresh water. Two springs  which have never run dry, an underground river (27 feet below the surface) of cold pure water, and a creek running 3/4 of the perimeter of the Property.

The 300 meter waterfront is twelve feet above Sea Level and  from there the property rises to a crest of 230 feet. There is no flooding. The shore faces the prevailing wind and unending new topsoil is delivered by each tide.

Finca Tranquila is actively producing organic fruit and vegetables. 150 Cacao trees grow producing seeds for chocolate but also magnesium for the soil mix. There are an abundance of natural medicinal plants and trees for maximum health. This is your chance to step into an established Permaculture Farm and get your hands dirty with no worldly distractions. Just you and the food.   ​

The Farm’s Abono ( Fertilizer)  has been certified organic by IMP, the international certification agent , and by MIDA. All the ingredients necessary for the fertilizer are on site. 


The property includes 3 separate buildings each with their own solar systems and rain catchment water supply.

The open concept home over the water:  has 1 kitchen and 1 bathroom. Big French doors open the entire place to a wrap around veranda and incredible western views of the Tierra Oscurra Lagoon. Minutes on the paddle board or kayak will bring you to healthy coral reef, incredible snorkeling and dolphin habitat. This building has a waterfront concession. ​

The meeting center: Located on the land this structure is a large covered space with a kitchenette, 3 private rooms and 2 bathrooms. Its elevation catches breezes off the water, and lovely views. This building is a perfect gathering place for Permaculture workshops.

A third home on the property is used by the full- time caretaker.



There are seven sites for possible cabanas which would also benefit from the prevailing wind. At maximum production and with the essential buildings, the property could accommodate and feed up to 50 people, fellow homesteaders, guests or potential pupils. There is one other very successful Permaculture school across the border in Costa Rica called Punta Mona; an inspiring business model with a message.

This property comes with the option to keep a very talented , knowledgeable care-taker/ captain employed. Well known and loved locals are essential for navigating Boacs Del Toro. She knows the waters, the plants and keeps busy with the animals, surely an asset to the property.
