The Villa looks out on horse pastures and misty mountains. Fresh soft breezes cool the generous kitchen/dining area. Lush gardens are all around you, emitting night scents and day scents that leave you smiling. Pick fresh fruit from the citric orchard and squeeze your breakfast juice. All the soft noises of animals -- from toucans to horse hooves, the water buffalo’s soft braying, and the baaa of sheep remind you that you are connected to the earth, the soil, the farm.

You are as quiet and private and isolated as you want. Or wander down to the stables - play with the pets, feed some animals, or watch the horses in training. Horses are available for riding (additional cost). The ATV's are fun, too. And if you wish to see the world from above, we operate the only hot air balloon in Central America.

Spectacular is the best word I can think of to describe Finca Centaura. Esteban, family, and all of his staff are incredible and so trustworthy. We had a group of 12 ranging from 2 yrs. old to 58 yrs. old and occupied all of his rental homes. They are all beautiful and immaculate. You can truly experience Costa Rica away... more
