“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Finca Monte Claro was beyond fabulous. We so enjoyed our stay in the Mezzanine that we hope to be able to return some day. This isn't your average tourist experience which makes it all the better. The farm is a real working farm, growing many, many acres of coffee and sugar cane and with ambitious and admirable plans to transition more and more to organic. Cristian's tour of the farm by horseback was amazing. We learned so much about coffee cultivation and bought a few bags to bring home. Also, ask about the goat cheese! Wow! That was an added bonus like no other. This place is inspiring and Marie and Cristian were wonderful hosts.

Room Tip: This is more or less like camping on a porch. It's beautiful and comfortable but don't be al...

Finca Monte Claro is a great way to experience Costa Rica on a real working farm! The property is on a large expanse of hills with excellent views of volcanoes and the picturesque town of Turrialba in the valley below. I took my wife and kids (ages 7 and 11) for 3 days and two nights. We really enjoyed sleeping outdoors on the mezzanine. It was a lot like camping, except all of the bedding and shelter was provided. We cooked a delicious meal of fresh fish on an open fire while we watched toucans, herons, and other birds from the deck. During the days we toured the coffee and sugarcane plantations on horseback, fed animals, swam in waterfalls, and went whitewater rafting. Marie and Christian were extremely helpful and accommodating. I recommend this place for small groups and solo travelers that are adventurous and want a rustic experience. We brought no camping equipment but were able to enjoy a few days completely outdoors.

Room Tip: - This is a real farm, so come prepared to enjoy the company of a variety of friendly animals. - Th...

While traveling around CR, we can across this great place! We had our kids with us, so were a bit scared at first with no electricty, but then we realized that made it even MORE of a great experience! The kids had so much fun with all of the animals animals around and all the great exploring they could do! We really felt close to nature and got to experience the "real" Costa Rica. All of the staff there were very nice and helpful with the local tours and things to do with the kids. They even got to "work" on the farm, and they loved that!! Great, simple place to enjoy the beautiful country of Costa Rica!
