Every summer, the iconic Momento de Oro trees bring great beauty and joy to passerbys as they brightly bloom and dot our Costa Rican landscape with neon yellow. Within a day of blooming, they gift us a spectacular show as their blooms rain upon the Earth before them and for anyone who has the time to watch. The trees typically go off "in-circuit" where a family of trees, connected by the wood wide web, go off in close-by or family groups. Occasionally the trees will bloom twice a season, but typically it is only once. This is a special, and magical occurrence that is worthy of a celebration en masse.
We, the community of Rancho Delicioso, are lucky to have an area that is a natural forming "stage" to showcase this special "Momento de Oro". This area is being developed through special plantings to be an area to host a pop-up picnic-like "festival" for locals to come witness and celebrate this special moment.
Join our mailing list and WhatsApp group to be put on the list for this special pop-up occurrence that we only have 1-day preparation for. You must be "ready" at this time of year to pack up your things and celebrate Nature on some random day during our Costa Rican summer which may range from any time in February through the beginning of May.
By celebrating the moment of this sacred tree, we honor all of Nature's beauty. Our celebration is a token of appreciation and gratitude for all of Nature's life-sustaining gifts.
