Rain Maker History from Rainmakercostarica.com:The history of a mountain such as Rainmaker would be best told by one of its inhabitants. A history told by its abundant plant and wildlife; its constant rushing water; its wise old trees. It is likely that they alone have seen the true wonders of its passing time. But since the history of Rainmaker Mountain must be written by one of us who have passed through, we must begin with what we know to be the core of this intriguing place. This land exists in its original state because of its innate ability to inspire. Indeed, it is a mountain of inspiration with a history of inspired people, and though its natural bounty continues to flourish its future remains uncertain.
