Sandro Cambronero is one of the youngest children of the Cambronero Castro family, of the Paraíso Jaguarundi lodging, and based on his upbringing, raised in the mountains of Osa, he grows with great sensitivity and respect towards nature. He dedicated himself to work in tourism, and little by little he was training as a naturalist guide in Drake Bay. It was then that he realized that his health was getting worse and he felt the need to return to the roots of his parents in natural medicine, in addition to rescuing this valuable knowledge of biodynamic agriculture that were being displaced by conventional industry. By making awareness and changes of nutrition for one's own well-being, the results were incredible in health and for the surrounding environment. This experience provoked the idea of having an activity that focused on maintaining and sharing the knowledge and culture of the lifestyle in the Osa Peninsula, planting and germinating a seed, seeing it grow in a natural state free of contamination and then harvest to consume something genuine is really a miracle and it was decided to transmit this experience with the visitors. At the same time, around 2014, the community was organized and prepared to work in rural tourism and consent to support this communal initiative were also included in the process, joining the Integral Development Association of Rancho Quemado. They gave focus to the artisanal process of organic cocoa, within the biodynamic farm where the whole ecosystem interacts in a balanced way, all the herbs grow, it is an arduous task to give organic maintenance, but at the same time rewarding when striving for the natural wellbeing and being able to share it with the visitors.
