“We enjoyed staying at Sharon and Dick`s house. Especially having a cup of coffee on the terrace with spectacular view surrounded by the jungle noises. We had several visits from raccoons and monkeys...and if you like birding..this is truly paradise. The house is comfortable and has a fully equipped kitchen. We really felt at home. It`s a short walk into town where we ate several times the typical Costa Rican dishes. It`s the perfect place to rest, read, relax and just enjoy life! We will miss it! Thanks for having us! Evi, Erwin and Benneth”

Where is it?
We're in a rural area of low mountains, about a kilometer from a town of 20,000. We have both Spanish and English-speaking neighbors. Ciudad Colon is a friendly small town with modern supermarkets, good meat and produce markets, and good public transportation. The U.N.-chartered University for Peace is located just outside our town.
THIS IS A DEVELOPING COUNTRY IN THE TROPICS! We have insects, snakes, spiders, monkeys, parrots, toucans, sloths, lizards...that's why people come here...to see them. If you don't like animals, jungle, Spanish, the countryside...this is NOT the place for you. Our home is not a luxury destination, and life in Costa Rica is very labor-intensive. It's also very unscheduled...nothing seems ever to happen "on time". We're more of an *adventure* destination:)
Our home is on a mountainside and the terrain is a bit steep...although having a car means no serious climbing on the finca. We've raised three children here, had hundreds of guests, and done 80-something exchanges. The people who have most enjoyed exchanging with us have been adventurous, flexible, and fit. We've exchanged with many enthusiastic birders, as well. We're happy to answer questions about trips to the coasts and other local attractions. Typically, exchangers have enjoyed horseback riding, whitewater rafting, beaches, jungle ziplining, Pacific island cruises, and exploring the capital and other colonial cities.
