i was blissfully unaware that finca bellavista existed just a short year-and-a-half ago. i'd never heard of this 'sustainable treehouse community in the costa rican rainforest.' but then it happened...
i was sitting at work, minding my own business, when a co-worker messaged me a link and suggested i check it out. to quote, 'you like star wars. this place looks like the ewok village from return of the jedi.' i clicked the link. and the rest, as they say, is history.
i immediately knew this was a place i needed to visit. and soon. i contacted erica and matt, who helped me better understand finca bellavista. three months later, i stepped off a plane in costa rica. alone. scared. excited. but knowing i was heading home.
and that i did. my time at finca bellavista saved my life. the serene settings, healthy living, larger-than-life characters, and mind-blowing treehouses were exactly what i needed in my life at that time. i was able to put the pieces of my life back together, off the grid, away from the world, and in the most unbelievable place i have ever been on this planet.
finca bellavista is more than a treehouse community. it is paradise. let its magic happen for you. i can't stress this enough. just go. be there. do it. you will never be the same.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Finca Bellavista is a treehouse community in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica! We are a rustic, yet comfortable, private retreat off the beaten path where owners and guests can explore the natural wonders of the rainforest canopy and enjoy what we like to call ‘treetop Pura Vida’. You definitely won’t find flashy billboards or roadside signs that lead you to Finca Bellavista… Finca Bellavista is not a full-service spa, a fancy hotel, or a canopy tour. We are located in an amazing and relatively untouched portion of Costa Rica that is removed from many of the influences of the outside world. The nearest town (1.5 miles away) contains a school, a church, a pulperia, a bus stop, a handful of houses, and of course, a soccer field. That’s it. No souvenir shops, no mini-malls, and no rowdy bars. Finca Bellavista is for the true traveller who wants to experience something truly different and special. We have acres of forest and gardens to explore, refreshing rivers, birdwatching, a botanical trail, and much more. We look forward to hosting you in our home! ... more less
