I visited the Finca de Vida the end of March 2015. What can I say? It was one of the most special places I have ever been to, and I have traveled around the world. First, the farm itself is pure beauty. The huts were clean and very comfortable even though we were basically in the jungle. It was 90... More

I have never had a better vacation. My cabin and its views were breathtaking. The staff made me feel loved and nourished. Brian and Jodie give their all to make the trip unforgettable. I feel so great

Finca de Vida is an all around life changing place! The cabins are beautiful but nothing in comparison to the breath taking views from your balcony. Brian, Jody and all their staff are so awesome and were there for what ever I needed. My time spent here opened my mind and my heart to new things and I could never... More

I have never been to a location like this. When I wake up in the morning I see them most beautiful scene from the room. I was at Bird altitude so while on the porch I was looking down several hundred feet into the valley. Amazing. The room was cozy and very clean. The food was great, the adventure and... More

This place will not disappoint you!! We came here for our honeymoon as well as our 1 year anniversary, that is how much we enjoyed staying at The Farm of Life! It was perfect for what we were looking for. We're not resort type party people, but rather wanted to stay somewhere in nature where we could do lots of... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for about a week last winter and had a wonderful time. Our cabin was amazing--one of the best ones on the site--and during our stay, ran about $80 a night total (which in our book seemed very affordable.) The small additional fee to pick whatever fruits and vegetables desired off of the property to... More

Brian and Jody are wonderful hosts of this retreat center- I loved being part of this raw vegan awareness community for the short 10days I was there and can't wait to return. Finca is reasonably priced with raw food optional on this gorgeous and peaceful land where you can pick your own veggies from the greenhouse if you choose. Daily... More

There is plenty to do around finca. You can do all kinds of excursions or do the hiking and swimming on your own, morning yoga, meditations, raw... More

Just spent a quick 5 days at Finca de Vida and it was exactly the restorative reboot I’d hoped for. It’s a beautiful property and, thanks to the hosts Jody and Brian, I immediately felt at home—even though I was a first time (and solo) visitor. The cabin was lovely –especially the hammock on the back porch and the bathroom... More
