About us

this is paradise

When Patricia visited Costa Rica with her daughter for the first time she came back and said to Christian: "This is paradise, you must absolutely see and experience it!"


So we began to spend our holidays more and more in Costa Rica. After thirty years in practice as a lawyer for Christian and Patricia's many years as a Coach with her own company, this piece of land found us! It was not absolutely our plan to emigrate, it just evolved like this! We found new activities here in Costa Rica, one of them is el alma as a place of inspiration, light and joy of life.

Our friends in Switzerland often ask us whether we are not missing anything here. Then we say always the same: we miss of course all the endearing friends. el alma should be enlivened with these and new guests from all over the world. We have created this place for them. Therefore and in this spirit, we look forward to your visit!

el alma is an ideal place for simply being and for having time to reflect on what we really need and wish for - beyond every days' demands.
