Eight agricultural cooperatives ...

Travel, Vacation and Adventure Guide to Costa Rica

Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from the cornfield. ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th US President

Eight agricultural cooperatives, ranging from Monteverde in the north to the southern Osa Peninsula, offer guests a rare opportunity to tour their farms and interact with resident families. Participants stay in rustic lodges, the proceeds from which are used for communal projects, such as fixing up roads, improving schools and cleaning the local soccer field. Good family-style food and fresh milk. They have their own tour company called Simbiosis Tours, specializing in local initiatives in ecological and land tourism. It’s an admirable effort to convert tourist dollars directly into grass-roots conservation projects, encourage local people to follow sustainable practices and improve the quality of life.

Cooprena ( fax 506/259-3605, www.agroecoturismo.net ) Monteverde Corcovado Agroecoturistic Association (Puerto Jimenez, Osa, ( 506/735-5440, www.ecoturism.co.cr/osanatural ) offers accommodations, meals, tours and logistical support for individuals or scientists in and around the Corcovado National Park on the remote Osa Peninsula.
