    La Gran Vista, located just outside San Isidro de General in South Pacific Costa Rica, is an Environmental Conservation Project where students, volunteers, and visitors can learn how a tropical organic farm function.  We are an Educational Institute where individuals can learn how to do things such as milking a cow, harvesting a mango tree, or using medicinal herbs.  

    We offer opportunities for gap students to pursue specific interests or field work pertaining to sustainability and organic farming.  Students looking to pursue a career in sustainability will have the opportunity to have practical experience that will be invaluable to their future endeavors.

    The minimun stay is one week! Live in a dorm or cabins with a single or double-bedded room. A modest daily fee covers room and board. There are Spanish lessons at additional cost. Every day you will have the opportunity to practice what you have learned in the lessons with the family on the farm. Alcohol and drugs are not permitted on our farm.

    La Gran Vista gives everyone an opportunity to learn about life at its most basic form and exist in a fully sustainable community.
