We are a family of 5 (teens and adults) who spent time at Casa Mariposa in Finca Bellavista in January of 2013. The whole complex is amazing and the team at FB have done an amazing job of living by their values. The scenery is spectacular and it really is so removed from roads and hectic life. Swimming in the jungle pools and realizing just how far out in the wild you are is a pretty surreal experience!
We stayed at Casa Mariposa which was perfect for our family. It is so wild to be cooking by headlamp but still have a functioning stove to create great meals. Doesnt everything taste better when cooked in nature? There is a lot of room in this tree house. There were comfy beds for everyone and the kitchen is a great place to gather...well when you are not out on the deck watching for the spectacular butterflies! The hike out is gorgeous and the house is really accessible (if you are nervous about getting up to a tree house or at all scared of heights...this place is perfect because you have an almost level entry on one side and still have all the great views on the other side!)
Our family loved connecting with nature and great friends out here...highly recommend it!

- 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
