Sobre el programa

Our volunteers will be fully intigrated into the daily life on our organic farm. Costa Rica is the land that uses the most agro chemicals per square meter worlwide. Most local farmers dont belive they can produce organic food or mantain their land without chimicals. We incoporate local people into our project to see options on organic farming and understand the importance of it. 

On our farm we are running different projects right now, and we are eager to recieve help to be able to fullfill all our offers to the planet, animals and people. Just to give you an overview beside the organic farming and building we recieve volunteers to help us with our horse education program around Natural Horsemanship and animal friendly training AND we teach the local kids as due to the actual situation the kids are missing of 1,5 years of school! Also we are cooperating with a local organisation and the town mare to teach English to the local people. We also recieve volunteers for our other project please feel free to ask us about about the positions. 

Here are some examples of activities you can do during your time with us:

  • Learn about building with all different kind of materials and techniques
  • Learn how to fix instead of through away
  • grow consciousness about an nature close and organic lifestyle
  • Learn about organic farming in our different gardens (seedlings, watering, weeding, building terraces, harvesting ...)
  • Learn about permaculture and our organic fruit tree forest: We have over 20 varieties of fruit trees on the farm like Avocados, Mangos, Litchies, Pejibaye, etc.etc.
  • Medicinal herb and tee garden
  • Interact with farm animals (chickens, cats, dogs and horses)
  • self made: bread baking, kombucha brewing, cooking etc. 
  • help us to protect our 5ha forest and join us on trash clean ups in the jungle next to our farm 

We like to do shared dinners and dance nights on the weekends. Also we have a campfire place where we come together, play guitar or make stick bread. On the farm there are horse tours offered and the region is great for hiking and bird watching. Around our farm is a lot of jungle with paths in where you can find sloths and beautiful flowers, birds and butterflies. 

We do not have wifi on the farm but with a local SIM card you can find good signal.

sobre la organización

Here at Finca Soley we share our passion and love for horses and natural horsemanship. Come to enjoy, learn and develop.

Conoce a tu anfitrión(a)

Finca Soley is a horse project and volunteers are completly involved in everything. Our volunteers recieve natural horsemanship lessons and a spanisch course in order to activly help in the training of the horses and the teaching (weather in the school or riding lessons for kids).


Finca Soley is a very small project that really tries to change something here in the area but also for the horses that get in touch with people that have been with us. We will touch your idea about horses and horse training. Spread the word to create a better world for our beloved horses and the people around them.

Finca Soley is a beautiful Guestfarm in the mountain area of Cartago, Costa Rica's best kept secret. Enjoy seeing and hearing horses neighing outside my balcony doors, watching the volcano smoke early in the morning, cooking over a beautiful fire pit.

2024 at Natural Horsemanship & Classical Riding

*****Statement of the organization below***** Accommodation: I paid extra for the private room, which was fine, but the washing machine and dryer were right against the outside wall so I had constant noise while everyone was washing their clothes sometimes in the evening. The bed was full of bugs ...
Although I spent only two weeks in this program, there was never a dull moment! The hard work and chores paid off with the wonderful horsemanship lessons by Isa each day, who was an amazing instructor. The staff and other guests/volunteers were kind and easy to make friends with; I never felt lonely ...

2024 at Natural Horsemanship - Volunteer at horse farm

Isa and Milton have created a wonderful living/working environment with Finca Soley. Because of its location, somewhat isolated, high in the mountains, it is somewhat cooler in the evenings and therefore very pleasant. I spent a month doing a combination of farmwork (3 days a week) and natural ...
