I am in Costa Rica right now and for a few more weeks. Wondering if anyone knows of any good sites to visit. I haven't been able to visit any tropical permaculture sites since I got into permaculture, though I visited one in Nicaragua BEFORE I had my official introduction. I know there are a couple places southeast of San Jose, but I am looking for places west of San Jose and around Monteverde area. Let me know i you have any suggestions. I have heard there isn't much but I thought I would try.
Places south of Dominical please?
I am located an hour up from the coast at Quepos.
Also, for anyone else reading - Luminescence on Isla Bastimentos (Bocas del Toro, Panama) is pretty unreal in terms of the site.
If you'd like you can go about 4 hours from Monteverde to the Peninsula de Nicoya and visit PachaMama village. Its an intentional community and transformation center. Although its not 100% organic its making steps that way. They also have a permaculture course coming soon. Anyway, its a great place to visit. their site is http://pachamama.com and I also recommend Puntamona, which was mentioned in this thread. Its a bit far off but worthwhile - just check their schedule first. Otherwise google permaculture costa rica and see what comes up

Your might want to ask Fred Morgan one of our moderators, I've been to his sustainable funiture website and they grow some jaw dropping tree's and well let's not talk about how awesome the furniture is.
Not long ago Osa Mountain Village was looking for help. Not really sure what sort of help. They seem to be in the market of selling real estate but also trying to develop their sustainability. Could be a lead.
