Our duplex made of hardwoods was perfect to share with our two teenage stars gifted to us temporarily from the Sun. The experiences were transformational in the most magical and high vibrational frequencies possible. The food and education is demonstrated in the improved health of all four of my family members throughout our stay and we have learned life changing... More

We recomend this place to everyone who loves pure nature, peaceful environment, spirituality and healthy organic vegetables, fruit and herbs picked right from trees. Anyone can find what they need here, resting and healing, regaining strenth or being active and experience different adventures. We spent 10 days in Finca de Vida and loved the entire experience. For us, in our... More

This retreat was an amazing experience. My intentions was to get off the grid and unplug from work, stress, and routine. I was blown away by the center and retreat experience/activities/excursions. I gained knowledge in terms of food prepping, food combining, as well as appreciating fruits and veggies in their natural states. There were a few plants I never seen... More

I had first heard of Farm of Life from my fiancé- now husband- as he had chosen to visit for his solo bachelor trip last year before our wedding. I remember how much he glowed and seemingly floated on air upon his return just before our wedding, and knew instantly he had found somewhere special! We decided that sharing the... More

The Farm of Life is a beautiful gem tucked in the hillside with peak-a-boo ocean views. The property is unique from the amazing organic fruit trees (that you can pick ripe fruit from anytime you'd like) and to the beautiful connection to Mother Nature, that you feel right away when you arrive. It's a perfect place for a getaway retreat,... More

I spent an amazing week at Finca da Vida in a deep vitality retreat with Secret Fine. The staff was so nurturing, the food revitalizing, and the site regenerating. Can't think of a better place to sink into Pura Vida! Attached is the view from my deck in the Ceiba cabina....

I am a raw vegan,and I found traveling and staying at the hotels is not easy. I found the Farm of Life to be a perfect place with organic fruit, there are the best mangos on the planet, and vegetables. Meals were delicious, creative with variety of tastes. The owners welcome each guest as they are part of family. Brian... More

Exceeded ALL expectations!!!! Somehow, Jodi and Brian, owners of this wonderful little paradise managed to host a week, in conjunction with "Secret", their gyrotonics and yoga master-level teacher who also teaches biodynamic craniowork (honestly, it doesn't get more advanced from a body work perspective!!!) ...they managed to pull together this rock and roll week of stupendous practitioners combined with waterfalls,...

This review is way overdue. I spent the 2015 xmas break in this farm. Met the most amazing hosts, staffs and guests. There is nothing more I can say that no other reviewers haven't said before already! I, however, wanted to provide another angle on how great this place is for book lovers.

One of the most beautiful places to visit while you're in Costa Rica - the property is gorgeous, the food is fantastic, and Brian and Jody (the owners) are a beautiful couple that own the place and make you feel completely at home. They have a brand new natural pool that is cleaned via UV light and the rooms are... More
