Both Camilla and I were born, raised, and were living in Cocoa Beach, FL when we met in July of 2011. We began visiting Costa Rica and now, there was a calmness in my soul that refused to be startled. We were falling in love with the place. Then we returned after one trip to discover that my mother was very ill with colon cancer. She refused chemo and radiation and ended up curing and maintaining herself herself with nutritional therapy. As this went on, we found ourselves startled by the realization of how toxic our environment in the US had become. The next move seemed so clear: Costa Rica. But we wanted to be sure that uprooting and entirely changing our lives and surroundings would be done for the better. Camilla's passion for an organic lifestyle brought us to Nosara, Playa Pelada and the surrounding area. The experience was incredible. Here is a place with clean water, clean air, and nutritious organic food arrived at by community influence and desire to stop GMOs & chemicals.
