Finca Bellavista is not a conventional resort or community. However, there are a unique set of services and amenities available to help meet the conventional and unconventional needs of residents and guests.
Food & Beverage Services
Each treehouse (except for La Torreluna) has some type of cooking facility to use. You are welcome to cook your own meals. For guests that would rather not cook for themselves or for those that enjoy company at mealtime, Finca Bellavista provides meal service in the community center with advanced notice (upon check-in). Finca Bellavista focuses on providing meals that are crafted from produce that is grown and harvested in on-site gardens. These farm-to-table meals usually feature typical Costa Rican fare, though the occasional Pizza or Pasta Night is also popular. We have limited availability to cater to special needs eaters, so please take this in to consideration.
Finca Bellavista staff will need advanced notice if you plan on joining meals (at check-in, or the meal before is considered advanced notice). Meal delivery to treehouse rentals is available only when staffing allows. If your party has dietary restrictions, please notify us on your reservation form.
All meals are served community style (i.e., there is no menu to select from).
- Breakfast is served daily from 7:30 until 9:30 a.m. Breakfast is put away and is no longer available after 9:30 a.m. On Sundays, breakfast starts at 8:30 a.m.
- Lunches are available for carry out. Orders for lunches must be submitted to the Finca Bellavista kitchen by 9 a.m.
- Dinner is served from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Dinner is put away and is no longer available after 7:30 p.m.
- Children under 5 eat for free with a paying adult. Children ages 5-12 enjoy 1/2 price meals.
Many guests enjoy ‘Happy 2 Hours’ in the Community Rancho between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. This daily ritual is a great way to meet other guests, relax in a hammock, play a round of cards or try out hula-hooping. All ages are welcome!
Finca Fresh Produce Bag
Residents and visitors to Finca Bellavista can now get farm-fresh produce from the on-site gardens and local farmers. Produce varies from day to day, but there’s always something yummy available. The Finca Fresh produce bags are worth every penny, as our homegrown, delicious goods are supplied by employees that earn living fair wages and enjoy their work, food costs money to grow, and driving to/from the store has a carbon footprint to consider. It’s tough to beat fresh organic produce grown on site! A mini-tour and harvest of the garden is also included, if the weather and timing allow.
Filtered water stations are available throughout Finca Bellavista, including each treehouse and cabina rental. There’s no need to bring bottled water, but please bring a refillable bottle to stay hydrated.
Spa & Wellness Services
Finca Bellavista’s massage cabin overlooks the Rio Bellavista, and provides a perfect perch to enjoy the sounds and ambiance of the rainforest during a relaxing massage. Please view our Spa & Wellness page for additional information.
Beginner yoga classes are occasionally available during the morning hours. Yoga mats are always available for personal practice in the Community Rancho.
When weather, staffing, and vehicles allow, a variety of services are available. At check-in, luggage delivery is available for a per-bag fee, shuttle service from the base camp to the trailhead closest to the guest rental is available for a per-trip fee. Meal delivery is also available.
Regional 3G cellular telephone service is available in sporadic locations around Finca Bellavista but should not be depended upon for communicating. There is a pay telephone available in La Florida. A WIFI internet zone is available during Finca Bellavista reception hours. Connection charges apply. Please bring your own device to connect.
A variety of on-site tours are available to Finca Bellavista guests. Guided night hikes, e-bike tours, and zip line tours are currently available. More information about tours can be found on the Activities page.
Our reception can help point you in the right direction for anything you might need on site. For explorers, there are plenty of nearby activities for those with an adventurous spirit!
Property Management Services
A treehouse in the rainforest makes for a very unique home… and many people vacation at the finca as well. It’s becoming a great way to share the “quintessential Costa Rica experience” with the rest of the world. Finca Bellavista is functioning as a treehouse resort community.
