Nestled against the virgin rainforest of La Cangreja National Park, Rancho Mastatal Sustainable Education Center has been teaching, exploring, and promoting techniques of living harmoniously in the landscape for 14 years. Renowned for it’s natural building and delicious culinary spreads of fresh homemade food, the Ranch offers profound, innovative and authentic apprenticeships and workshops throughout the year. Visitors will experience a rural Costa Rican community, delight in 325 acres of pristine forests and waterfalls, and participate in a working permaculture farm.
Through the collective efforts of many long-term community members, the Ranch has established itself as one of the premier sites in tropical America to gain hands on experience in natural building, fermentation, agroforestry, animal husbandry, permaculture, homesteading, and community development.
