we are Duende Natural

'Duende' is a Spanish word which means the smallest spark of spiritual essence. Our goal is to help create that spark through our projects working in a communal climate.

The Duende Natural Group is about creating a sustainable land project with lush bio diverse Costa Rica as its backdrop. It is founded by a group of friends and families from Brooklyn, NY, whose aim is to build and create a resilient future for ourselves and the community developing the land into a rustic Eco-resort providing a place for travelers and local folks to share and learn from each other on how to live lightly on Planet Earth and reconnect with nature.

This will be accomplished through acquiring land to build a rustic and earth friendly eco-resort that will be used to facilitate adventure and cultural tours. We will also have planned adventure/culture tours.

We have several tours lined up for Februry and August of this year to the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica and a Field Trip to Washington, DC in May and you're invited! For more go HERE for our 2016 Tours.
