About.

La Farmacia Organica is a family owned and operated organic food distribution service, organic health food store, with a sister location, La Muricata Farm, which is an off-grid home and permaculture inspired edible food forest farm.  The farm is located 25 minutes away from the center of Nuevo Arenal. 

We are located in the beautiful community of Nuevo Arenal of Guanacaste, with rich soils and wonderful people on the gorgeous Lake Arenal.

Let the food be our medicine. We are strong believers in the importance consuming foods rich with vitality and minerals. We nurture our soils with frequent sprays of microorganisms brewed with rock powders. 

If you are interested in medicinal plants, tropical organic gardening, perennial plants, small retail business management, food distribution systems, properly prepared foods and plant based nutrition we would love to share our experience and make more experiences!
