La Anita was the first stop on a four week trip to Central America, and I wish I had saved the best for last. We went to many beautiful places, but the finca was truly a magical paradise. Besides the natural beauty of the surroundings, the accommodations were sweet and clean and we had a wonderful porch to relax on...

The tourism industry in Costa Rica is overdeveloped, and it can be hard to sort the authentic and high quality experiences from all of the riff raff. La Anita offers something that is uncommon in Costa Rica, and that makes you feel like you've really gotten off the beaten track and into a more authentic and adventuresome corner of the...

Finca La Anita was hands down amazing. The scenery, food, staff, and owners all ROCK! You can see where they grow their pineapple, and in the morning you get to drink it as juice. The experience the place provides is unforgettable!

Staying La Anita Rainforest Ranch made our group trip that much better. It was comfortable, clean, and wonderful overall. Everyone on the grounds is understanding, kind, and willing to help. The cabins, the food, the view, all of it was truly part of a real Costa Rican experience.

The staff at Finca La Anita was truly incredible. The food was delicious, everyone went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and safe. The chocolate tasting almost everyday was a treat, the rooms were very clean with daily service, and the farm had so many trails that along rivers, mountains including lots of native animals! Definitely recommend!

“don't flush your toilet paper, unless it is for #2, and make sure to wear boots of some sort when traveling around because you never know what kind of critters will be lurking near your feet. On the first day I got swarmed and attacked by some nasty fire ants...won't make that mistake twice! ”
