About Punta Mona

Punta Mona started in 1997 with just a man, a vision, and one cutting of Chaya. Stephen Brooks’ off-the-grid homestead has since become a beloved, transformational education center for thousands of people seeking a simpler way of life and the skills to design a regenerative future for all.
