I arrived late in the night and woke up to breathtaking scenery all around me! The layout of the farm is so well thought out and everything seems as if it has been carved out by God. Each part of the farm has been built with love and that came out the more and more I sank myself into this... More

Farm of Life is a vacation of a lifetime. Clean air, beautiful environment, cleansing, clean, farm fresh, organic, delicious food are just some of the positive aspects. Jody and Brian, who own the farm, are very accommodating, loving and spiritual people who plan breath taking activities and sites to see. The cabins are lovely and very clean. You can sleep... More

I knew my retreat with the amazing Twist & Sprout girls Susan and Lorna would be a fantastic, but I had not considered how much Finca de Vida would add to this experience. I found the location breathtaking and welcoming. The accommodation, amenities and surroundings are faultless...and I am more than a little bit fussy! The hosts and staff were... More

This place is amazingly nestled in the crescent shaped, sacred mountains of San Salvador. Jodi and Brian have infused this place with so much love, turning a former cow-trodden landscape into a mountain oasis of tropical healing! Whether it's their gardens, the structures, the pool, the employees, the outings to waterfalls, hikes, horseback riding, or everything, the vibe of love... More

What Brian and Jody are doing for the world - for everyone who touches ground at Finca De Vida - is something that brought tears to my eyes many times while at this slice of heaven on earth.

I came to Farm of Life to heal chemical sensitivity and to prepare myself for the next chapter of my life. And that is exactly what has happened and continues to happen.

I went to Finca de Vida for healing and I came away healed. It is a setting of outstanding natural beauty, the air is delicious, the sun blesses everyone and everything on the mountain, the food is everything we need to flourish and the atmosphere is like bathing in an ocean of unconditional love. I slept literally like a baby,... More

I am a woman travelling alone and was initially looking for a place that would give me a safe feeling. This was so much more. It was a truly changing life experience. A little piece of heaven. A garden of Eden, which is - with the stunning background of Costa Rica's nature - not hard, BUT what truly makes the... More

Beautiful views at this very remote raw food retreat but not a 5 star experience for the 5 star prices. I came to Costa Rica for its beauty, solitude and peace and what I got was music blaring from 6am to 9pm, disrupting my enjoyment of the natural sounds of dawn and sunset, raw food meals that I was required...

We keep our prices as affordable as possible, so that persons of any income can have a place to rest their heart and soul and heal. The 5-star reviews... More
