Bellavista

Situated along the Rio Bellavista near the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Finca Bellavista has emerged from the pristine rainforest as one of the first self-sustaining residential treehouse communities. Far removed from the outside world, this rustic retreat is nestled in the canopy of over 600 acres of rainforest. Although this location is well off the beaten path, it still offers easy access to National Parks, remote beaches, hiking trails, and stunning mountain-scapes.

Each arboreal structure has a unique design dependent on the elevation and available trees in order to preserve the environment. In the efforts of sustainability, each accommodation utilizes rainwater or spring water, processes waste with a bio-digestor, and uses electricity produced by the solar panels or alternate energy sources. The treehouse community is connected by a network of suspended bridges and zip-lines which offer residents an adventurous commute around the compound and breathtaking views of the rainforest canopy.

While several destinations offer treetop accommodations that allow guests to commune with nature, Finca Bellavista also incorporates social interactions as a component of daily life. The community center offers an airy dining space, coffee lounge, and the open-air rancho. Other amenities on site include the campfire ring, lush gardens, and stone lined pool. While the founders originally intended this as a residential community, many owners have opened their homes as vacation rentals for those seeking to experience the treetop pura vida.
