Welcome to Paraíso Orgánico

Finca Paraíso Orgánico is an eco-friendly, family endeavor born 20 years ago of the belief that organic farming is the future for humanity and our amazing planet because it is the way to sustain life. The stunning natural beauty of this area in the northern region of Costa Rica gave us the inspiration to ansform our vision and beliefs into a viable, sustainable rural agro-tourism concept. To minimize our disruption of nature’s balance requires a different way of thinking about all life … and then changing the way we live ours. As a family, we strive to produce organics of the highest standards, expanding the application of organic practices in our pineapple farming to a variety of other local crops including cassava, lime, guanabana, and an array of tantalizing spices. We are also committed to bringing more employment to the community through our farm operations through the Organic Pineapple Sogo, a foundation we created for the community.

History

Family

Sarapiqui is one the largest towns in the Province of Heredia. Located in theSarapiqui is one the largest towns in the Province of Heredia. Located in the Northwestern region of the country, it is bordered by Nicaragua to the north. This area is well known for its abundant wildlife, rainforest, and jungle rivers and is becoming an important eco-destination in Costa Rica.
Sarapiqui is sits at 121 feet above sea level, with a combination of rich soil and ideal weather for plantations as well as rural farming. However, the large pineapple and banana plantations and their non-organic practices are sources of pollution and soil erosion, creating problems for the communities of the region. As we investigated to understand more about these problems, we developed a sustainable and certified organics program for our pineapples. Today, we are one of the only Costa Rican producers to raise the quality of organic pineapple for export to America and Europe.

Our Purpose

We are committed to the continuous improvement of sustainable organic models and practices in our region. Engaging and educating visitors about the expansion of sustainable agricultural techniques and innovations and their impact in supporting local communities, is a vital part of our commitment.

The Sogo Foundation was formed in 2008 by the Soto and Gonzalez families to promote the importance of organic pineapple farming as a healthy and sustainable alternative to the large, agrobusiness approach that was overtaking Costa Rica. It provides training and education in organic farming, awareness of the benefits of sustainable agricultural practices, and job opportunities for the communities in the area. Part of the profits from the farming and the Paraíso Organic Tour help support the Foundation’s work.
