On our most recent trip to Costa Rica, my girlfriend demanded that we stay in a tree house. Don't get fooled by the myriad of links to shacks on stilts - Finca Bellavista is the real deal. I couldn't have been more skeptical prior to arrival but WOW this place is incredible. We stayed in the gorgeous Mis Ojos tree house and fell asleep to the sound of a nearby waterfall and spent our days hiking the property, swimming in river pools and just feeling relaxed in the jungle. I'm sure the tree houses are not everybody's idea of holiday accommodation, but not having electricity or internet - while still being in a stunning, comfortable environment- was the perfect escape from the "real world". The staff and volunteers couldn't be more helpful and the food was great.

- 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
