Punta Mona’s mission is to provide an alternative to the destructive land use practices taking place throughout Costa Rica and the world.
At Punta Mona We:
- grow most of our own food organically, which includes hundreds of species of tropical fruits, vegetables, herbs, medicinal plants as well as bamboo and extensive native hardwood reforestation
- use eco-technologies
- create a sense of community
- educate learners of all ages and from all walks of life
We are dedicated to teaching environmental awareness through conscious,
positive and creative solutions to the dilemmas facing the modern world centering around Permaculture principals.
We invite you to come, experience and be inspired by Punta Mona, where you will be immersed in an energy-conscious, off the grid,
resourceful experience focused on healthy food systems, freedom of expression and re-learning our inherent life skills.
Enjoy and Experience:
- sea kayaking
- mud bathing
- wandering our extensive gardens and orchards
- host or join a workshop or retreat
- indulge in our jungle gourmet cuisine
- connect with the extensive wildlife
- stretch out on our yoga deck and live la Pura Vida!
We believe Punta Mona is a unique place and one that has much to teach about
the things we take for granted, the power of community,
immagination, equality and the beauty of living a simple, intentional life.

This is a unique opportunity to live off-the-grid and experience the dynamic rhythms of the jungle and warm Caribbean Sea while tuning into your inner rhythms through the practice of yoga.
In these trainings participants not only will learn how to facilitate others through the yogic practice but also become immersed in permaculture and sustainable life style by eating mostly what is grown on the farm, rising and setting with the sun and leaving the world of artificial light and sound behind.
