Discover the many areas, equipment and common spaces that together can offer you a most authentic and relaxing experience, far from main stream touristic tracks.
The farm has 8 different rustic bungalows and rooms, accommodating from 1 to 12 people and totaling a maximum of up to 35 people at once. Depending on courses and events, at any time there could be from 3 to 50 visitors at the farm.
Besides the bungalows, we’ve also got plenty of space for camping and a fire circle next to the tinkering river, great for roasting marshmallows and playing music in the evening.
We truly practice a “farm-to-table” dining experience… Each and every day, crops are harvested from the garden and used immediately for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is always a wide variety of fresh fruits and veggies to make up the most delicious feasts for all!
We have multiple private and shared compost toilets and warm showers around the Rio Muchacho farm. We even have a compost-heated shower making very hot water when in action! Please only use biodegradable soap.
Yoga & meditation garden
In our Yoga & Meditation garden next to the river Muchacho you can relax, meditate or practice yoga anytime. Surrounded by trees and the sounds of birds you will feel peaceful instantly. We also offer Yoga retreat courses for those interested.
For students we have a classroom that seats up to 40 people and that is equipped with a projector for presentations. This classroom also serves as main space for the many sessions of our various courses about permaculture and agro-ecology.
We offer craft workshops during which we create unique jewelry from vegetable ivory or make bowls and spoons from the mate gourd, and lots more! We also do paper recycling, where we can show you how to recycle your used paper into a brand new blank sheet, or organic products workshops. Click here for more details.
Chill out area
At the end of the day, chill out in the hammocks all around the farm!
We have a book exchange area with various Spanish, English and foreign language books. We also have a great collection of books on organic farming and permaculture for use by course participants. Take your pick and find a hammock to read and relax.
Nicola has a fantastic collection of documentaries mostly around food systems, sustainability, and so on. They can be viewed in our classroom space.
We have a space for children to play in our park! Equipped with swings, climbers and other play equipment. Check out our family stay section for more details.

Due to the fact that we don’t have wifi access on the farm's premises, you can get a well deserved digital detox. The closest location for internet access is the town of Canoa, a 15 minute ride from the farm. Mobile cell access is intermittent, but a 10 minute walk up the hill will give you a better signal with Claro.
