“Little piece of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2010

This is the most amazing place I have ever been. My experience here will be burning in my brain forever. We stayed in the first treehouse built, a.k.a Matt and Erica's labor o love. We did get to tour the property via zip line, which was awesome !! After that we took a hike through the river and into some swimming holes. Later on we relaxed in the treehouse over looking the water fall.
BTW there is a little bit of a hike to the tree houses so make sure you bring some good hiking shoes and rubber boots.
There is also a lot of birds so it is a good idea to bring some binoculars.
If you don't want to stay in a treehouse you can stay in a cabin by the river.
There is also a community center where you can hang out and read, eat dinner or get on the internet.
Oh and getting there...just find a taxi driver to take you there, you will not want to leave when you arrive and the roads are pretty sketchy.
Well I think I hit the highlights so visit their website for more details.

Stayed December 2009, traveled as a couple

Finca Bella Vista is such a wonderful unique place. Nestled in the heart of the rainforest in Costa Rica, a country that holds a very special place in my heart, is this little hidden piece of paradise. It is possible to own an build your own treehouse here, however you can also vacation here as we did. We first came to the finca with some family in 2009, and decided it would be a perfect place to have our intimate wedding with only our family and closest friends. As suspected, it was an absolute hit! Imagine being able to say you were married in a treehouse in the rainforest! Well I was!

We only spent three nights at the finca this trip, but I cant imagine a more romantic way to spend our wedding nights. We stayed in "Los Ojos", the treehouse located next to the waterfall, with only candles and fire-flies to light our way in the evenings, and giant blue butterflies, and hummingbirds to greet us in the mornings.

Some of our group stayed in Cabinas at basecamp, while others stayed in the bigger treehouse, "Mastate". It was a bit complicated to coordinate when our neighbours were atleast a 15 minute hike away from us, so we all got plenty of exercise. None the less the scenery is the most beautiful you can imagine, and if you need to cool off, simply head down to the stream for a dip.

I have loved my experiences at the finca, and fully entended to return again! If you want some place to relax, I'd say this is the best place in the world. Do a little yoga on the balcony while watching out for tucans, and listening to the hum of the forest and I think you will find peace.

Enjoy!

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
