La Joya del Sol
A Living Foods Permaculture Community forming in the South Pacific Mountains of Costa Rica.
La Joya del Sol (Jewel of the Sun)Â is forming as a nature-inspired, intentional community nestled in 67 hectares in Costa Rica’s south Pacific coastal mountains. Its lush tropical rainforests, clean waterfalls and pools, and breathtaking mountain scenery an hour from beautiful beaches, is designed to attract conscientious people looking to live fully and reconnect to divine nature.
Here exists a creative living laboratory to discover the possibilities and Â develop a more sustainable way of life through permaculture-based design and land use. We utilize alternative energies and available natural spring and rainwater. Organic gardens and over 1000 fruit trees provide a seasonal, daily farm-to-table amount of food. Structures use natural materials like bamboo, cob, and local sustainable woods in non-toxic “Eco-Chic” architecture that blends with the tropical surroundings in elegant, functional style.
Our region of Costa Rica is very biologically diverse and you can expect to see an abundance of animals, birds and unusual insects during your stay.
We provide simple, comfortable accommodations in a bamboo/cob cabina, or a standup tent or elevated and sheltered tent platforms.Â There’s sunrise yoga space at the ceremony firepit, a hideaway healing hut for massage and other healing arts, and healthy whole food plant-based meals each day. Life here can be a communal experience, or take as much time to yourself as you like. We support hermitage or vipassana retreat as well. Come stay from a few days to months and enjoy the Pura Vida!

Mission of La Joya del Sol (Jewel of the Sun)
To work together to co-create a tropical sanctuary for us to heal, strengthen, and help reclaim our true essence and connection toÂ Creator andÂ Nature, and to return to Earth the era of peace and awareness. The need is greater now than ever before for a sustainable haven where the intimate pureness of nature canÂ rejuvenate our bodies,Â move us emotionally, touch the very core of our souls, and fill us with tremendous inspiration -Â as we reveal the enormous creative power within ourselves.
– Founder, Master Chef/Educator Eric Rivkin
Join our evolving permaculture farm for a unique eco-experience in an optimal healthy, tropical environment. For the period of your participation, your personal goals are integrated with shared goals to foster a rewarding and co-creative experience for all.
Imagine going to sleep to the tranquil symphony of crickets, night birds, and mating frogs under a milky way starry night. Wake up naturally to the circadian rhythm of sun and moon with the sound of birds and monkeys.
Work begins at 6 am a little after sunrise when it’s cooler (and more sunny in rainy season), leaving afternoons for personal activities. Getting into the natural waysÂ is refreshing and great for your body, mind, and spirit. Personal activities can include walks to our waterfalls and pools, rainforest hikes, social gatherings, or day trips (with gas share) to nearby breathtaking local natural sites like Nauyaca falls, Diamante falls, or a quiet Pacific beach as time off permits.
For those who want to use their experience for maximum body building and health, work here can be more physically challenging.Â We look at co-creating, tending and building as a natural and essential activity of a healthy, meaningful life contributing to the betterment of self, Man, and Earth.
You may also have the opportunity to work with our beloved Tico hired-help Ramiro and his sons Gregory and Byron, whose strength and knowledge of the land and its people will make a big impression.Â Working with inventor and designer Eric Rivkin is a delight as his problem-solving and design skills and creative mind achieve beautiful “Eco-Chic” solutions to anything that needs to be built on the farm.
