My family is pursuing our dream of living off of a permaculture based homestead in the tropics. I'll be arriving in Costa Rica on November 5th, and staying most of the winter in order to look at property and different possibilities for living arrangements to make our dream a reality.

I'm interested in buying a house with a few acres, or just buying bare land where we can build a small house. We're looking for a situation where someone might be willing to work with us - we could provide a down payment in the $x,xxx range, and then we'd be looking to make monthly payments after that. Similar to what we call a "land contract" arrangement in the US. Open to other arrangements as well. Have some land that you're not using for the foreseeable future? Let's work something out!

Obviously, I don't expect a large, modern house with 100 acres. Just something where we can work toward self-sufficiency and live a more fulfilling and sustainable life.

We've spent quite a bit of time in the tropics in the past, including time spent working on farms - this isn't an idle dream for us; we know (or think we know) what we're getting into, and we're serious about making this a reality.

We would also be interested in looking at land or a house that is part of an existing intentional community.

If you have anything available, or know anyone who does, please contact me here, or email me at clarktr2 (at) yahoo (dot) com.
