A place to nurture the spirit. We stayed at Casa del Mono and the accommodations were enjoyable. This is definitely not for the weak hearted or for those looking for a five star resort. FBV is an adventure from the beginning and visitors should be aware that this is the jungle not a corporate project. We considered ourselves pretty fit... More

Thanks for the review! While we do bring in about 30% of our food supply, the remainder is grown on site. Keeping a full-time, year-round, organic garden-fresh selection of foods can be challenging with the swings in seasonal visitorship. But we try our best to keep our pricing fair and reasonable, while providing an amazing selection and quality for our... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate our anniversary in April. We chose to stay in the beautiful Fila Tortuga and it was awesome! From the minute we arrived we were greeted by Christian who was very friendly and informative. While checking in the rain started pouring down and Christian told us that we would need... More

Every place we stayed in Costa Rica after staying at Finca Bellavista felt too tame, too touristy and too full of people. It's very hard to create an environment in a wild place where you feel safe, while at the same time not feeling it's been tamed for your enjoyment. We've both traveled to many places, and felt that Finca... More

Striking the balance between having enough services, creating comfort for our guests in a wild environment, and not creating a tourist trap or 'overdone' ambiance is extremely challenging. We are thrilled that you acknowledged and appreciate the experience that we've created for our guests! (: We hope you come back for another visit someday. More

Finding and arriving to the property is part of the adventure. We approached just before sunset, cloud mist all around in the trees as you are at high elevation. It was so exciting and mysterious. On arrival we so warmly welcomed by the team. Christian check us in and helped us carry bags to our accommodations; Casa Del Sol which... More

My sister and I stayed in Cabina Colibri for 5 days at the beginning of May and we've been talking about it with family and friends ever since.

The sole reason my husband and I chose Costa Rica for our honeymoon was because we had heard about Finca Bellavista and wanted to see it for ourselves. We stayed in El Castillo Mastate, the "penthouse" (as the staff called it). El Castillo (the treehouse pictured in Finca's TripAdvisor thumbnail) was truly a sight to behold and we felt like...
