We wanted to plan a holiday that would be beneficial to our health and way of life and Farm of Life was recommended to us. With many comments from others when booking, we thought if anything, we’ll go for the adventure. After all, it was only two weeks. Well, we got so much more than that. It didn’t take long... More

We loved the Farm of Life so much that we cannot wait to go back! Experiencing this amazing place is truly life changing. Being submerged in the jungle for a few weeks, away from city life, stress, and negativity, simply renews your body and refreshes your mind. Brian and Jody are great hosts and the volunteers (Ana, Jack, and Katie)... More

Absolutely amazing place. Jody and Brian have done an outstanding job with all aspects of this property and their high level of customer service. Rooms, property and food are great but the best part is the people/family...and the VIEW...can't wait to return. Pirate Vida!

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

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
