After a bumpy and adventerous ride through the jungle where, at some point, you are not sure if you took the wrong turn ;) you´ll see the finca arise from the jungle! After a very nice welcome from our hosts amy and matthew you´ll be guided by a volunteer to your new home which is located deep in the jungle.If...

It was such a beautiful place to honeymoon! We both love nature and the rainforest and the tree house, El castillo mastate, was sooo awesome! Everyone I told about and showed pictures to was jealous. It was nice just being able to do our own thing and explore where we wanted. Being so immersed in the jungle was very relaxing...

Just returned from Finca Bellavista one week ago. I had a wonderful experience there. Stayed 4 nights in the newer 'treehouse' Casas Paraiso situated on the Green Trail, about 10 min hike to Base Camp. The Casa was amazing.There were no major problems. The bed was quite comfortable, netting worked well, the shower was great too. I chose not to...

Thank you for the review, and for the detailed items addressing the services and expectations that other guests might have at the finca.

I've always wanted to stay in a treehouse and this was a great way to fulfill my dream! We stayed in Casa Perezoso. Pros: beautiful surroundings, gorgeous waterfall on the grounds, fun zip-lining, great food / communal meals, lack of electricity was actually quite fun Cons: we didn't have a bug/mosquito net over our bed the first night and woke...

We had been waiting several years to visit Finca Bellavista and had a great time when we finally made the trek into the Costa Rican rainforest. The experience was very authentic - our house was completely surrounded by rainforest, we could hike 10 minutes down to the private river, and could watch exotic birds from our porch. We participated in...

Thank you for your review, and for mentioning the sock/boot issue. We recently updated our literature to reflect the need for bringing tall socks, and hopefully it will help folks plan ahead for that! (: Have a great new year and we hope you make it back to the finca on your next trip to Costa Rica.

I did a decent amount of research on the website and by reading reviews here, so we felt well prepared for our Finca Bellavista experience and were not disappointed. It also helped that we arrived at FB after having spent three days in another jungle lodge near Corcovado on the Osa Peninsula. There are several reviews claiming unpleasant experiences with...

This place is like living in a dream world! We only had 3 days at FB and I could have easily stayed longer. I can see why the volunteers come for months at a time! We stayed in Casa Mariposa. This one is the furthest from Base Camp (30-40 minute hike each way) but well worth the trek. It was...

I was amazed by the attention given to us by the staff: ministration, kitchen, volunteers. Your service was superb. the natural beauty of the finca is more than what I expected. Casa Peresoza was very comfortable, something we did not expect due to the remoteness and primitiveness of the place. All the utilities were functional and properly equipped. We even...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finca Bellavista is a treehouse community in the rainforest of Costa Rica! This village is a rustic, yet comfortable private retreat off the beaten path where owners and guests can explore the natural wonders of the rainforest canopy and enjoy treetop 'Pura Vida'. Finca Bellavista is not a full-service spa or fancy hotel. We are located in quiet corner of Costa Rica that is removed from many of the influences of the outside world. The nearest town (1.5 miles away) contains a school, a church, a pulperia, a bus stop, a handful of houses, and a soccer field. That's it. No souvenir shops, no mini-malls, and no rowdy bars. Finca Bellavista is for the traveller who wants to experience something truly different and special. We have acres of forest and gardens to explore, refreshing rivers, birdwatching, tours and much more. We look forward to hosting you in our rainforest home! ... more   less
