Finca Bellavista lives up to its promise as an environmentally sustainable tree house community with challenging hikes from which one can explore virgin and secondary growth rain forest, a base camp that offers fantastic food grown on the property, and very cool tree house accommodations. Read the website and follow its instructions. Be prepared to carry anything you want in... More

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...

First I must say that if you choose a treehouse far from "base camp" plan on doing some walking with hills and wear clothes that you plan on sweating through. It was 100% humidity and anywhere we walked my husband and I were both drenched with sweat. Having said that it was a truly amazing experience and I highly recommend... More

Exciting, unique and authentic. My company hosts wellness travel and eco- adventure experiences globally. We visit a lot of beautiful and authentic properties but Finca Bellavista is one of the most unique settings I have experienced. The grounds and private forest are teeming with wildlife, spectacular plants, views, well marked hiking trails, waterfalls, swimming holes. The tree houses are not... More

The hut and the nature where amazingly nice. We agree with all positive feedback on TA but we where disappointed for some others points: thougt to find a real community but we discovered its just a business to make money... a lot of money... its a bit over priced. Price policy not fair. They add 23% on top of all... More

Shhhh... Do you hear that? You have yet to open you're eyes but already you hear the hum of the southern Costa Rican rain forest... The early sun ever so lightly licks warmth across your eyelashes, and you come to be blissfully awakened... Baby birds take flight; armoured insects scurry through the fallen pieces of the jungle, and perhaps somewhere... More

I went with my girlfriend in Feb-2015, We're both 30, however we've met a lot of people from different age range. It's a unique experience, and for those who enjoy nature should go there for sure!

My boyfriend and I booked Casa Colibri for two night. We were hesitant when booking at first since it wasn't a treehouse and all the treehouses were not available. We decided to go with it and I am so thankful we did. No online reviews, images and videos can do this place justice. It has a very strong community feel... More

Casa Mariposa was our home for 6 days and we enjoyed many great cups of Costa Rican coffee and wildlife sightings from the spacious deck overlooking the rainforest. The day trips to other areas of the finca physically stretched our endurance but each one was an amazing way of experiencing the rainforest. Even though carrying our groceries the 20 minute... More
