The Land & Location
Check out the amazing land and the surrounding area here!
Pura Tierra is located in beautiful Southern Costa Rica, the most bio-diverse area on the planet! Perfectly situated on the top of the spectacular Escaleras hill in between Dominical and Uvita. The whole property is surrounded by lush green primary rainforest canopies teaming with wildlife, rare plants and beautiful ancient trees with their incredible root systems! There are so many options for building spots, gardens, shared community areas and protected forest. It is such a wonderful, magical space with two year round springs ( the source of one is on the property!!) with an abundance of water and so much potential for hydro power!
The central community area building site has a spectacular view of the Diamante Waterfall and Valley with great breezes on those hot days. Get up early in the morning and you will hear the howler monkeys and toucans as you watch the sun rise over Mount Chirripo – the tallest mountain range in Central America!
We are only 10 minutes to the majestic pacific Coast and the beautiful beaches. Playa Hermosa, which means beautiful beach in Spanish, is super close and a perfect place to splash and play in the waves, soaking in the fresh tropical air! We are also minutes to the whales tail in Playa Uvita, the National Ballena Marine Park, where you will likely see turtles nesting or whales breaching! Playa Dominical is a world famous surf spot while Playa Dominicalito is for the learners Not to mention, our favourite little secret – Playa Ventanas – explore the sea caves, play in the gentle surf, watch the Scarlet macaws, where the jungle meets the sea, soaking up the Pura Vida!! … and we can’t leave out all of the rejuvenating, healing waterfalls sprinkled in among the jungle ~ the place where we can truly appreciate all of mother earth’s abundance.
San Isidro, the second largest city in Costa Rica is also only 45-50 minutes away and has an incredible market every Thursday and Friday with great food (lots of organic items) where our community plans to sell some of our own products! Our family really looks forward to market day, first thing every Thursday, where we can find so many specialty organic items that are a rarity in Costa Rica, like spices, dairy, raw foods, kombucha and organic tofu!! The market also gives us a chance to see all the farmers with their warm smiles, time to practice our spanish with their sweet patience and the children adore them ~ they always cut a couple slices of mango or papaya to treat them, which goes straight to their fruitarian hearts There is also every service and store you may require there so no need to travel to San Jose!
Dominical itself is such a beautiful little surf town with some eccentric stores, boutique accommodation, cafes and restaurants and bars. We are still discovering new quaint little beaches and waterfalls all around us here, enjoying the beauty and differences at each one. Recently we found Playa Pinuela, 10 mins south of Uvita, it was spectacular, the jungle canopy rises up like skyscrapers framing the slightly rocky beach. Amazing. Uvita itself is a quaint little village with some great amenities including two supermarkets, bakeries, banks, a furniture store and a hardware store for those essential home supplies! We are in such a great location!!
Costa Rica and Pura Tierra is truly a magical, tranquil place to live and visit, in a wonderful location that will surely take your breath away, we cannot wait to share it with you all!! <3 <3
Love, Light & Pura Vida!
