Do you want to be inspired by ecologically harmonious living?

 SLE - FRONT Final no date with words AND with email website


This tropical paradise is home not only to the world’s greatest biodiversity, but also to hundreds of regenerative projects; groups working to build a more beautiful future for themselves and all life. These pioneers, communities, homesteaders, permaculture demonstration sites, ecological preservation projects, and social benefit organizations want to share their successes and what they have learned in the process of becoming more sustainable.

Curious what a day on Expedition looks like?  Check out the SAMPLE ITINERARY


Stay at the beautiful Diamante Center in one of the most breathtaking regions of Costa Rica. This land has been caringly restored and developed with permaculture principles, natural buildings, reforestation and many open spaces. Eat amazing local organic produce and enjoy tropical fruit from the food forest. Connect with nature on 55 acres of lush rainforest.

Center yourself through daily yoga and meditation on the rainforest yoga deck.

This amazing piece of paradise borders the majestic Baru river with pristine natural swimming pools and a jungle island. All nestled right above the Baru waterfalls. Baru is any nature lover’s dream, photograph the incredible views from atop this stunning waterfall, or turn towards the sun-speckled jungle behind you. Among the most spectacular mountains, waterfalls, and beaches in the world, this is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and magical places in the country.
