About this space

We have a 3.5 hectare farm in Costa Rica's central valley which we use as an animal rescue and sanctuary. We have many street dogs, plus a variety of other animals (horse, goat, pig, chickens, cat), and we are on the farm to serve them!

The space

In our home we have two small bedrooms with an adjoining bath. Each bedroom has a single bed. One of the bedrooms has a private entrance. The other can be accessed through the house, or through the other bedroom and bath.

Guest access: Guests have access to the farm, where you can hike up the mountain, through our jungle, and down to the river. Feel free to take a couple of dogs along for the hike!

The kitchen

We have a building on our property called the cafe - it is our shared space kitchen where we prepare breakfast and lunch for the volunteers and guests. Breakfast is included in the cost of your room.

Other things to note

You really, really must love animals to stay here. There's going to be some barking and some poop. This we can guarantee. We also can guarantee that there are a bunch of critters that will absolutely love your attention!! Stay includes breakfast.

Hello! We are a VEGAN animal rescue and sanctuary located in the central valley of Costa Rica, mid-way between the capitol and the Caribbean coast. We operate an international work/stay exchange program, and host workers from around the globe. We also have a couple of spare bedrooms in our home we offer to visitors such as yourself!

If you love animals, good and bad, big and small, you will love it here. If you are annoyed by a dog that jumps up on you because he is happy to see you, you will not enjoy it here.
Favorite places: It's a great, non-touristy area. We are about the only gringos in the region. If you would like to experience an authentic Costa Rican pueblo, this is about as real as it gets!
Getting around: We are on a major bus route. You can access the farm from San Jose via Cartago, or from Turrialba.

Allan's property is located in Cartago Province, Cartago Province, CR
