We (a young couple) had make a reservation to this beautiful oasis of peace for 2 nights on December 14th and 15th. Once there we were quite impressed with the view that our little treehouse (Mis Ojos) was offering but once in the complete dark it was a totally different story. This particular treehouse is very open so we got food stolen by what we think is a little jerboa and something like a raccoon. Don't forget animals in the jungle lives mostly at night. The next morning the jerboa had pissed and defecate all over our stuff so we packed and left. Don't get me wrong if you are nature lovers you will love this place. Matt, Erika and the cook are amazing people but it wasn't for us. It's also very far from any town so bring lots of food if you're not vegetarian cause all that's offered are vegetarian meals such as rice, beans, salad for dinner. Breakfast was pretty amazing though. Also bring books and games cause it can be quite long with no electricity.

- 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
