Project Summary

Intentional Community in Montezuma, Costa Rica

Project Description

Eco Village in Costa Rica

Pura Vida sunsets is a set of 13 small lots located in the hills near Montezuma, Costa Rica.  This beach town is known for its incredible beauty and thriving international community of artists, chefs, yogis, surfers, raw foodies etc.

Our small community is providing an inexpensive solution for those who are interested in living in the area, and we provide green building and permaculture know-how.

We also have a set of architetural designs with a focus on the "small eco house" concept, available to our clients.  These designs are also published online for anyone to use, improve, or comment on.

Costa Rica sustainable community

The PVS intentional community also has one lot set aside for the owners, where we will have an organic garden and orchards, yoga shala, and salt water swimming pool.

The project creators and lot owners are dedicated to the principles of permaculture, and several have spent time volunteering or learning in other permaculture projects before settling here at PVS.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
