Harlow - Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us. I truly
feel like I've been in heaven for several days. I wish you all the
best & much success.
Muchas gracias, Terri Palladino
So happy, so happy, so happy and peaceful too. Muchas gracias mi
amigo for a wonderful birthday experience.
"Our stay at Buenaventura was the highlight of our 2 1/2 weeks of Costa Rica.
Harlow, Tamara and Gerardo and their family are fabulous hosts who work hard
to make sure you are relaxed, feel at home and are well fed and cared for!
For a family from a city this was country living at it's best.
Seeing our kids milk cows, eat star fruit off trees, ride horses, play soccer
with Tamara's kids, grind corn for tortillas and float down a pure mountain
stream and jump in big swimming holes and waterfalls was GREAT. Almost a year later our
children are still talking about it. Our 3 1/2 year old often packs up a
little bag and when you ask where she is going she says Costa Rica with a
huge smile on her face and says she is now chuleta girl thanks to the farm :)!"

Beautiful stay - I go back full of plans for how to return!
Your piece of paradise is more than I could ever have
imagined! I will carry the rushing river, the singing birds, the
grounding rain and everyone's laughter back with me into the depths of
the "reality" from which I come. (It will be Culture Shock, for
sure!). Thank you for being a perfect host. Espero regresar con mas
amigos! Ahora entiendo que es la Pura Vida!
Harlow, What a gift you've given: creating this pocket of paradise and
sharing it. The effort that you've exerted to create this, and your
dedication to being a generous and nurturing host don't go unnoticed.
You are gifted at what you decided to dedicate yourself to and I am
grateful to have been able to share in it. Thank you for a wonderful
Much love, Brooke
Harlow - Thanks for a wonderful experience. This has been a
great/pleasant opportunity to see CR and its beautiful landscape.
All the best, Esmael
"During our trip to Buenaventura, Harlow showed us an amazing time in Costa Rica. From horseback riding through the rainforest, living like locals on a rural organic farm, and hiking to some of the most pristine beaches, waterfalls and streams in the world, there was never a dull moment. If you have an adventurous spirit and want to see the real Costa Rica, I highly recommend exploring it on one of Harlow's personal tours of Costa Rica."

Harlow , You made this trip exquisite in every way! The rainforest, the
location, the retreat... but mostly your generous and caring spirit!

Pura Vida Harlow! You're doing an amazing job here on your finca. I
wish you the best while making your dreams come true.
Harlow - Who would have thought that when you first met Amanda in SF
in the early 1990's that one day (April 27, 2011 to be exact), you
would sell one of your beautiful lots to Amanda's future husband! We
are so excited to now be owners of a little piece of your paradise &
now we begin the amazing process of manifesting what will become of
Sacred Views. Most of all, we feel so blessed to have such a loyal and
trusting friend in you. The future is bright for Buenaventura & Pueblo
Nuevo! We want to help you succeed in accomplishing all that you have
set out to do here!
Our best, Bri, Amanda & Lil D
