Located at Finca Fruición, a Permaculture Land Cooperative, Casa La Vista offers a grand deck, and expansive view of the Talamanca Mountain Ridge. Enjoy fresh spring water, while surrounded with bio-diversity, including a nearby orange orchard, banana and turmeric fields, and a forest hike, with a creek and humble waterfalls. Just a 40min drive from San Isidro del General, and 45min from Uvita (dirt mountain road), this is a nature oriented, quiet retreat home. Tours also available.
Casa la Vista is located in rural Costa Rica. True to its name, the views of this house are incredible. There is a 180 degree vista which spans the entire general valley of Peréz Zeledón. There is a hot shower, a lightly stocked kitchen, sofas, hammocks, dining table on the deck, reliable wireless internet, and access to the Fruition Center for Holistic Culture and Ecology. Privacy and community meet at Casa la Vista for those travelers who want to get an authentic rural Costa Rican experience.

There is a quaint village about a 10 minute walk from Casa la Vista that has many traditional skills to offer visitors ranging from Salsa Dancing lessons to homegrown eggs, cheese, meat and more. Tours to see how sugar is made, witness Costa Rican farm life, have a traditional meal, or horse back riding through the mountains can be organized through the Fruition Center. For the avid hiker, there is a 9 hour hike through the mountains to the beach available as well.
The Fruition Center and all it has to offer... a book library, fish ponds, gardens, natural building structures, food forest, community kitchen, passive solar shower, WiFi, and good people. The local village includes kind neighbors (all Costa Rican and Spanish speaking) a traditional sugar cane processing ranch, coffee and banana farms, some small gardens, a corner store, with basic hoe needs, accompanied by our friendly, spanish speaking neighbors. The beach is a bit far for day trips, unless you don't mind the adventurous back country mountain roads. There are rivers near by that make beautiful day trips.
