Punta Mona is an 85 acre off the grid, family owned environmental education center, botanical collection, permaculture farm and eco-lodge, dedicated to sustainable ways of living.
Punta Mona’s mission is to provide an alternative to the destructive land use practices taking place throughout Costa Rica and the world. By growing our own food organically, using eco-technologies, and creating a sense of community, we are showcasing and educating learners of all ages and from all walks of life. The ideals of sustainability, conservation of energy and reduction of waste permeate our everyday lives. Our houses are built from local, fallen trees, solar panels provide our electricity and we grow hundreds of species of tropical fruits, vegetables, herbs, medicinal plants as well as bamboo and timber.
