The Howler Monkey Hideaway is a cozy cedar cabina in the mountains above Dominical. It is located close to both the beaches and many local attractions, yet is a tranquil, cool, safe and natural environment on our community-owned organic farm.
The Cabina is made of local cedar with hardwood floors. It features a main living/dining/kitchen space with 2 couch platforms that can also serve as extra beds for children, plus a dining table with chairs, and equipped kitchen with stove, oven and regular size refrigerator. Two screen doors lead from there onto a large open roofed deck, perfect for yoga, meditation or swinging in the hammocks (provided). There is a small separate bedroom with queen size bed (orthopedic pillow top mattress). The toilet and sink are indoors, and there is an outdoor shower enclosure with hot shower. It is perfect for a single person, a couple, or a small family with children over 4 years of age (the deck has no railing and the space isn't suitable for toddlers). The cabina is completely screened and has curtains in the bedroom.
The Howler Monkey Hideaway is located on Fuente Verde, our 60-acre community-owned organic farm, which provides safe and tranquil surroundings. It is a very clean environment, and perfect for those with environmental, chemical or EMF sensitivities. You are free to explore the farm and hike the trails into the protected primary rainforest that begins less than a hundred yards from your door. Listen to howler monkeys serenading the sunrises and sunsets! Take the family for a dip in our swimming hole and enjoy hiking up the river. Our farm has water from its own springs and abundant fruit trees. In rainy season waterfalls pour off the face of the ridge next to us, and just a bit further down the valley is Diamante Falls. one of Costa Rica's tallest waterfalls at 600 feet.
There is excellent bird watching on the farm: our gardens, trees, ponds and rivers provide ample food and shelter for many of the 860 bird species that live in or pass through Costa Rica. Our Fuente Verde bird count is close to 200 species! Best times for bird watching are from December to April, when the North American migrant species are overwintering here.

Hi, I'm Raven. I wandered into Costa Rica nearly 20 years ago while backpacking from Tierra del Fuego to Alaska. I loved it so much I never really left. In my previous life I was a fashion designer, before leaving it all behind to become a world traveller and Student of Life. My passion is creating Sacred Wedding and Vow Renewal Ceremonies for couples who desire to celebrate their love in this beautiful country.
I love the natural beauty of this magical land I feel blessed to call home. Come visit and maybe you will fall under the spell of Costa Rica too!
