Our Guest Book Registry and Testimonials

"First off, thank you for such an amazingly successful time at Buenaventura with both groups. Gabby and Alex came back just raving about their experience at the eco lodge, in El Brujo and eating all the amazing food at Three Seeds. They also thought you were the coolest, of course. The photos are amazing and proof that the students enjoyed themselves to the fullest -- most of them saying Buenaventura was the best part of the trip. We are looking forward to working with you again in 2014 and hope to save Buenaventura for the end of the trip. Let me know your ideas for future trips. We are excited to move forward with the 2014 season already!"
- Shannon Revolinski, Programs Director at Moondance Adventures

"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 :)!"

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 reprieve!
Much love, Brooke

"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 - 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

This was a much needed return to nature for me. And I am replenished even in the short time I've been here. I look forward to a time in the near future where I can spend 'real' time helping you with your projects! Its been a few years late, but thankful we finally got to meet.
Cheers, John Dang
