We visited Finca Bellavista, and stayed at Fila Tortuga, this beautiful treehouse with an amazing view! The treehouse is so unique, with all wooden features and furniture to create that real rainforest feel. From the treehouse we saw amazing things such as toucans, tarantulas, blue morpho butterflies, and firefly shows at night. There was incredible swimming holes and waterfalls which made for awesome photo ops. The entire place was well maintained, and the staff and volunteers were so friendly! The whole family had an amazing time at Fila Tortuga at Finca Bellavista!

Room Tip: Check out the Fila Tortuga!

Staff (Erica, Matt, rob) are absolutely amazing! The treehouses are so unique and well designed. Staying there was a little piece of heaven. So serene and quiet! Amazing waterfalls and swimming holes! Try the zip lining too! The food was the best we had had in all of Costa Rica! Two thumbs up for Finca! Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Casa Persoza and it was perfect! The Mis Ojo looked beautiful as well!

We are a family of 5 (teens and adults) who spent time at Casa Mariposa in Finca Bellavista in January of 2013. The whole complex is amazing and the team at FB have done an amazing job of living by their values. The scenery is spectacular and it really is so removed from roads and hectic life. Swimming in the jungle pools and realizing just how far out in the wild you are is a pretty surreal experience!

We stayed at Casa Mariposa which was perfect for our family. It is so wild to be cooking by headlamp but still have a functioning stove to create great meals. Doesnt everything taste better when cooked in nature? There is a lot of room in this tree house. There were comfy beds for everyone and the kitchen is a great place to gather...well when you are not out on the deck watching for the spectacular butterflies! The hike out is gorgeous and the house is really accessible (if you are nervous about getting up to a tree house or at all scared of heights...this place is perfect because you have an almost level entry on one side and still have all the great views on the other side!)

Our family loved connecting with nature and great friends out here...highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Casa Mariposa...see write up above!

My wife and I just got back after a 4 day stay and I can't possibly say enough good things about this place. Getting there is easy, fun and incredibly scenic. Finca Bellavista itself is peaceful and beautiful. There's so much to do and see and the staff couldn't possibly be more friendly and helpful. It really is a paradise. We hadn't even left yet and we were already planning for our next trip when we could bring our son.

Our favorite activity was definitely the river hike. One of their volunteers will take you on a hike up to a waterfall and then down the Rio Bellavista a couple miles to another swimming hole. It's a really fun experience and the scenery the whole way down is amazing. The zipline was fun too, and we really enjoyed just hiking around the property and exploring. They have huge amount of land and while the base camp is beautifully landscaped, most of the property consists of small trails through the rainforest. It's just a cool place to explore.

One of the coolest aspects of Finca Bellavista is the community. Everyone comes together for 3 meals a day (which are awesome by the way, thanks to the head chef Rob), and there's also a happy hour before dinner. These are all great times to get to know some of the other guests and the staff. Everyone is incredibly friendly, everyone has an interesting story, and you'll feel like family almost immediately.

I would definitely recommend bringing long socks (almost up to your knees) that will make the tall rubber boots they give you much more comfortable. Other than that, bring comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty/sweaty and a sense of adventure.

I can't speak highly enough of this place. Matt and Erica and the rest of the staff have built a truly special place and we can't wait till we have the opportunity to go back.

Pura Vida!

We (a young couple) had make a reservation to this beautiful oasis of peace for 2 nights on December 14th and 15th. Once there we were quite impressed with the view that our little treehouse (Mis Ojos) was offering but once in the complete dark it was a totally different story. This particular treehouse is very open so we got food stolen by what we think is a little jerboa and something like a raccoon. Don't forget animals in the jungle lives mostly at night. The next morning the jerboa had pissed and defecate all over our stuff so we packed and left. Don't get me wrong if you are nature lovers you will love this place. Matt, Erika and the cook are amazing people but it wasn't for us. It's also very far from any town so bring lots of food if you're not vegetarian cause all that's offered are vegetarian meals such as rice, beans, salad for dinner. Breakfast was pretty amazing though. Also bring books and games cause it can be quite long with no electricity.
