ABOUT POSADA DE SUEÑOS:

Posada de Sueños is located in Buenaventura's "Pueblo Nuevo Eco-Village", in a private and serene valley, between dense rainforest mountains in the valley of River Division in Costa Rica and directly across the river from Sacred Mountain and Buenaventura Eco-Adventure Lodge & Rainforest Rejuvenation Retreat Center, 160+ acres of mountainous rainforest with trails, waterfalls, and swimming holes.

Posada de Sueños is a river-front 4 Bedroom House that sleeps 8-10 people. The house also has a 1,000 sq ft communal living space area for yoga, dancing, and hanging out, and has a fully equipped kitchen with appliances (gas stove, refrigerator, blender, juicer), silverware/pots/pans/etc., washer and dryer and Free WiFi! The house also has fans, tables, chairs, and hammocks.

We also offer Mountain Bikes, Yoga Mats, PlayStation 2, and other items for use or rent on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

This Vacation Rental is great for families, group retreats, honeymooners, researchers (biologists/anthropologists), artists, authors, and folks on sabbatical. It is also perfect for vacationers wanting to really soak in the rural farming culture and rainforest and looking to experience the Costa Rican rural countryside away from tourists. This is a 100% no artificial ingredients, back-to-nature type of place owned by a Central American-U.S. family that runs Buenaventura Rainforest Retreat Center and Tres Semillas Mountain Restaurant.

This house is located on the southern border of the Los Santos Forest Reserve - 150,000 acres of premontane, montane and cloud forest and steps away from the edge of the Division River, which offers wonderful swimming. There is a beautiful old growth tree forest, gardens and organic fruit trees on the property and within the Eco-Village. Rental includes access to the riverside area of the Buenaventura Eco-Park which has a great little riverside picnic area where you can hang out in a hammock.

This destination is especially great for families with children since there are children to play with on the nearby farms and ample space to run around. There's even a small soccer field nearby and there are waterfalls less than 10 min. walk up nearby creeks within Buenaventura's 160 acre Wilderness Adventure Tent Camp Park & Wildlife Private Reserve.

Location: 20 miles to the north-west of San Isidro de El General, and 10 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean - between the two small farming communities of El Llano and El Brujo de Río Nuevo.

  • A fantastic cabin in the remote mountains of Rio Savegre. Found my peace in the solitude. The best part was sitting under the 200ft Ceiba tree and just listening to the sounds of the river.

    Tamara provided some wonderful meals using fresh ingredients grown on their farm. A real culinary treat after eating rice and bean dishes for the last 6 weeks.

    The pueblo near the cabins is very chill and amiable, unlike some of the coastal surf towns in CR. A much needed change of pace in my long trip.

    Go here for simplicity, solitude, and adventure.

Buenaventura - Costa Rica Eco-Adventure Rainforest Retreat
About
Harlow Salvador (owner/host of Buenaventura) Harlow's first visions, inspirations, & manifestations towards his dream of creating Buenaventura began in August of 1996, when he was on a two month 'soul-searching' backpacking trip through Mexico and Central America; when he found himself sitting on the backside of a Mayan Temple in Tikal, and while looking out over the Peten & Lancandon jungles of Guatemala... it was at that moment when the Buenaventura dream was born! As your host at Buenaventura, Harlow provides turn-key simple living experiences, gatherings and retreats for individuals, couples, honeymooners, families and groups and to nourish them in nature through clean live water, fresh pure oxygen, home-grown & cooked organic meals, and salt-to-the-earth grounding experiences...!
