Bienvenidos a la Finca!
We are excited to share with you the "real" Costa Rica, or at least a delicious taste of it. We rent out Private double rooms in a large open air farm house, conveniently accessible yet a world away from mainstream tourism.
Want to experience a different side of tropical paradise? Get away from it all but without going too far off the beaten track. We rent rooms in our family farm house. The home is located a short walk down an Idyllic country road, where neighbors wave and wish you Pura Vida, from uncrowded Caribbean shores. The rooms are in a newly constructed open-air house where the monkeys are your morning wake up call the crickets and frogs sing to you, sweet dreams. We operate with as much sustainability as possible. Accommodations are basic, but beautiful. Mosquito nets and clean sheets are provided. There are shared bathroom facilities, including a composting outhouse. On-demand hot water showers are available. Guests are welcome to use the large kitchen. For a delicious shared home cooked meal arrange with some prior notice, no problem. There are many options for things to do. Half way between the port city of Limon, and Cahuita National Park, there are no shortage of adventures here...or just laze in a hammock and fill your eyes with the green jungle that surrounds you.
Private room, that has its own lock and key.
Shared bathroom with showers, and composting toilet.

There is a washing machine, but we encourage laundry to be done by hands and dried by the sun to lessen our enviromental impact.
Tours can be arranged with local fisherman for deep sea fishing or nature river tours to sea crocodiles, sloths, and monkeys!
Interaction with guests
There is usually somebody around to answer questions. We are native english speakers, but the owner also speaks fluent spanish. As this is a functioning farm the owners are often busy dawn til dusk with work. Guest can arrange a tour of the farm or chocolate making class prior to arrival. The house has three private rooms for rent, and a dorm room under construction-so there potentially could be other travelers in the home as well. Also our two loveable farm dogs, our Tilapia pond, chickens and soon goats and horses are always around to keep you company. as of sept. 2014 the live-in owner offers free english class to village children tuesdays and thursdays in the a.m. we encourage guests to participate and help contribute in cross cultural exchanges.
