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.
- 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
