There is a problem with the FlipKey site and the response rate is malfunctioning. We do respond to all emails.

Stay with Erick, Nayu and their 2 daughters on their 130 acre dairy farm, Finca Tuete. It is in a beautiful location with rolling hills, rainforest, pasture land, rivers and creeks. It is 30 minutes from the attractions in the La Fortuna area.

Families and groups interested in a cultural immersion experience on a Costa Rican dairy farm should consider this unique offering. It is a peaceful location with a 360° wrap-around porch with majestic views of Lake Nicaragua, the Northern Plains and the top 1/3 of Volcano Arenal. There are local, hidden jewels to be discovered. Rainforest trails, waterfalls-where main stream tourism does not tread!

The newly built Hacienda guest house has 4 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms. There is se...

My husband and I and our three teenage boys had a wonderful visit with Eric, his wife and his darling daughters. Our sons still rave about the wonderful meals we had. The family, dairy cows, little dogs, peacocks and their resident parrot all welcomed us to the farm. It felt more like we were staying with extended family. We never...

If you are looking for a unique experience in Costa Rica and don't mind the insects and animals, I highly recommend Finca Tuete. Great people, amazing food, fantastic opportunity to learn how a family lives on a Tico family farm. We participated in daily activities including feeding the cows, milking the cows, making cheese, hanging out in the hammocks on... more

Our family with 4 kids (9-16) so enjoyed our time here. We loved the farm animals - best hands on experience yet. The scrumptious food (they even manage our tricky dietary needs) that was ordered and prepared before you sit down making for happy kids and relaxed parents. The horse back riding to the falls is not to be missed... more
