My wife, two teenage daughters and I decided that we wanted to see Costa Rica after hearing many amazing stories from friends, so we headed there for 10 days over Christmas vacation.We landed in Liberia, and traveled through Guanacaste, into the interior to La Fortuna, down south to Manuel Antonio, and then spent the last 4 days of our trip at the Finca Bellavista. I can honestly say that it was the highlight of the trip, and one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. We stayed in El Castillo Mastate, which was spectacular; very comfortable, had all the amenities we needed, and the experience of staying high up in the jungle canopy was awe-inspiring. Being big nature lovers, we were hoping to see some wildlife, and we were lucky enough to see tree sloths, toucans, monkeys, basilisk lizards, huge butterflies, and more. Matt And Erica are wonderful people, very kind and welcoming, and helped to make the visit even better. We found the Finca to be a peaceful, relaxing, rejuvenating and magical place. Walking down to the swimming holes at the river, my wife discovered what she described as the most perfect place she has ever been. My family has traveled to many places together over the last 15 years, and this ranked as our favorite.
