We loved the Farm of Life so much that we cannot wait to go back! Experiencing this amazing place is truly life changing. Being submerged in the jungle for a few weeks, away from city life, stress, and negativity, simply renews your body and refreshes your mind. Brian and Jody are great hosts and the volunteers (Ana, Jack, and Katie)... More

Absolutely amazing place. Jody and Brian have done an outstanding job with all aspects of this property and their high level of customer service. Rooms, property and food are great but the best part is the people/family...and the VIEW...can't wait to return. Pirate Vida!

I visited the Finca de Vida the end of March 2015. What can I say? It was one of the most special places I have ever been to, and I have traveled around the world. First, the farm itself is pure beauty. The huts were clean and very comfortable even though we were basically in the jungle. It was 90... More

Finca de Vida is an all around life changing place! The cabins are beautiful but nothing in comparison to the breath taking views from your balcony.
