We stayed in El Castillo Mataste at Finca Bellavista (shown in the photos of the newly weds.) The room was clean nice and spacious, with a view of the surrounding jungle. There's a bridge that connects the two houses, one equipped with a kitchen and shower and the other serving as the main bedroom. A river runs through the whole property and you can swim when the water is not too high. Nice view of the river while ziplining too! The walk from El Castillo Mataste to the main lounging/dining area may be quite long (and dark at night) for some people. That being said it truly is a one-of-a-kind experience, where you can enjoy the pure life of living amidst the wild animals and trees of the jungle. The whole place is built by hand, and despite its rustic qualities, still has all the amenities of a house.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Finca Bellavista is a treehouse community in the rainforest of Costa Rica! This village is 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 treetop 'Pura Vida'. Finca Bellavista is not a full-service spa or fancy hotel. We are located in quiet corner 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 a soccer field. That's it. No souvenir shops, no mini-malls, and no rowdy bars. Finca Bellavista is for the traveller who wants to experience something truly different and special. We have acres of forest and gardens to explore, refreshing rivers, birdwatching, tours and much more. We look forward to hosting you in our rainforest home! ... more less
