Help Walter Gavitt Ferguson and family through the COVID-19 crisis

Although Walter Ferguson, 100 year old Calypso legend of Costa Rica and author of „Cabin in the water“, has touched many lives across the globe with his unique music, has never been able to live from it. For the last four decades, Don Walter and family have been living off a small cabin rental business in their hometown Cahuita. In all these years, the Fergusons have welcomed countless tourists from all over the world in the traditional guesthouse „Sol Y Mar“ and the romantic „Riverside“ cabins. By offering guided tours, the Fergusons helped visitors to discover the region’s gorgeous caribbean beaches, local culture and rich wildlife. Don Walter himself is a historic character of Cahuita town, a genius composer and story teller, a retired master of natural medicine and still lives on the exact same spot as his grandmother did.

Now, as COVID-19 CRISIS has stopped tourism completely, the Fergusons are affected badly and struggling hard. They urgently need financial support to make ends meet and to hold on to their business, their life’s work and their home for over a century.

Please make a donation if you can. As small as it may be, it will help to keep the Sol Y Mar & Riverside Cabins afloat and save the future of the Fergusons.
