Milking the Mare
New Year's Marshmallow Roast
Our Little Corner of the Jungle
In the small village of San Bosco, just outside the Caribbean coastal town of La Alegria de Siquirres, Costa Rica, there is a place where travelers enjoy vacations, help with sustainable country gardening, swim in a large natural swimming pool, lodge for the night, listen to soothing sounds of rivers and birds, milk cows, and gather on the lodge veranda to worship God. That place is Mighty Rivers Eco-farm, a treasure of nature hidden along the banks of the smooth-rock, tumbling Rio Destierro (Exiled River) and the sometimes tranquil shores of Rio Perla (Pearl River), plumb smack in forever-verdant foothills of Costa Rica’s second highest volcano.
Visitors to our village will be greeted by a small grocery store, a one room school house, and a tiny church. Tico (Costa Rican) country dwellers and Caucasian settlers constitute the estimated population of one hundred fifty people.
Mighty Rivers Eco-farm is graced by a interesting medley of farm animals and crops, operating in harmony with nature and people. The landscape is a rolling river bottom triangle surrounded by mountains and rivers, with a spectacular Volcano Turrialba backdrop. The farm is actually squeezed between the converging points of “our” two rivers, at the end of a gravel road.
