We have almost concluded the busiest year to-date here in Playa Bejuco. We have never had as many guests this late into August and never the amount of guests in our vacation rentals as this past high season. Both high season and green season has been amazing (and busy), with a good portion of high season next year already booked up! We look forward to September and October as we prepare the homes for the next big rush, although we certainly still have room for guests during the greenest of green season! If you are planning a trip down to the naturally majestic Costa Rica, book your trip today as our beach is almost fully booked already! We do have a few gaps and a few homes free for parts of February, as shown in the image below.

We were pleased to coordinate and raise school supplies for all the children in our local school. Including our own donations and that of others, we put together 60 comprehensive packages for the students and 10 packages for the teachers, both full and part-time. A special thanks to all those who contributed to our "Giving Back" programme through donations of supplies and cash. We even have a little left over for our next event and we are very thankful that our guests, neighbours and friends have been kind enough to help the local Bejuco School. These donations go a long way to help this under-funded school, providing the students the tools they need to start off the school year with some excitement and support from the community. A very special thanks goes to Cheryl, one of our wonderful neighbours in Bejuco and a volunteer at the school, for her efforts throughout the year and in helping to coordinate these packages.

Unfortunately, we couldn't throw a party this year for the school of Bejuco this past Christmas/End of Year. We had suggested and arranged a boat tour for the entire school, organized a discounted rate with friends that run one of the most popular Crocodile tours in the area (Don't worry, it's completely safe), and were prepared to pay for the transportation and tour. Sadly, it didn't work out this year due to some complications. We're hoping we can run with this idea next year though! Instead, EcoVida donated that money so that the lovely Kindergarten teacher would have funds to put together gift bags for the entire school. We donated out of EcoVida income rather than asking for donations this year, but that doesn't mean we won't be asking for school supply donations for "back to school" from all those who have donated in the past and those wishing to be a part of this cause to help our local kids. Here are a few pictures taken by Paola, the Kindergarten teacher and/or one of our fantastic local volunteers, Cheryl, at the Bejuco School this past December. Muchisimas gracias, Paola and Cheryl !!
This year we donated 3 piñatas, a cake and 50 bags of gifts for the kids.
This is a great waterfall about an hour from Playa Bejuco. The hike is from 4-6 km one-way depending on where you decide to park and if you have 4wd or not. Horseback tours are offered as well and it's easy to make a day of it at this little bit of paradise.
