You do not live alone on our farm. We live nearby (but far enough away to ensure your privacy) and are always available - do not hesitate to contact us! We are eager to help regarding any problems or worries you might have, and help you to make the best out of your trip to Costa Rica, to answer all your questions about Costa Rica, the farm and the various adventure tours you can pursue here, the horseback tours through our mountains, about the authentic Costa Rica off the tourist trail or just for a glass of wine.
You will enjoy the time on the finca on the mountain like in an eagle's nest! From here you can enjoy vast views and observe the breathtaking game of clouds and beautiful sunsets. Maybe you prefer to relax in the hammock on your terrace or swim in the pool enjoying the stunning sunsets. Then you will feel that you have arrived.
Follow your desire to explore on small hikes along paths enjoying wide views of the landscape and through the jungle. You will see forest plantations with cape berries (Physalis), cocoa, oranges, various lime trees, cashew trees, papaya, zapote, mango, avocado and many more, an infinite variety of tropical trees, shrubs and herbs. The monkey herds usually reveal themselves with their calls and conversations, you almost always hear that from the terrace and it is safe to say that an encounter with them on paths on our finca is nearly guaranteed. We have at least three monkey groups on our finca that wander in small groups in the treetops and can often be watched. With attention you will discover many species of birds, pizotes, armadillos, foxes, jaguarrundi and in the evening with luck even our Olingo bear.
Even easier to observe is our small horse herd of Paso Peruanos, one of the most comfortable horse breeds in the world from South America. Maybe you would like to discover the magnificent surroundings on the back of our Peruanos? Or you prefer to hike down to the river, where you can cool off in the natural bathing pools or at the waterfalls?
The beaches at Samara and Nosara, which can be reached quickly from here (Playa Samara in 23 minutes), are among the most beautiful beaches on the Pacific coast. There are lonely beaches where you are often the only person. On moderately busy beaches like Playa Samara with a wonderful mix of beach under palm trees, restaurants and cafes right on the beach, everyone likes to unwind.
The small town of Samara offers a unique mix of people from all over the world and correspondingly the most diverse shops and restaurants. When returning from the sea you will enjoy the cooler mountain air as relaxing and can sleep well with or without air conditioning, in contrast to the night heat right on the beach. A stroll through the nearby old colonial city of Nicoya is recommended to feel the Costa Rican life with almost no tourists. This rapidly developing town is the cultural center of Nicoya Peninsula, which is known for the longevity of its people (Blue Zone). Visit the large jungle village Nosara via the spectacular mountain panorama route that passes our finca. In Nosara you can see how expats commence their new phase of life with yoga, surfing and tropical nightlife. Back in the tranquility of the finca, you will again feel like in pure nature, where you can watch animals and listen to the sounds of nature, catch crayfish (freshly caught and prepared), and enjoy the company of friends. If you are looking for an authentic Costa Rican experience then this is definitely what you are looking for!
In addition, you can easily book one of the many tours: Canopy Zip-line, kayaking to the island, deep-sea fishing, exploring the mangroves by boat, visiting the rare macaw breeding project, surfing in Samara or Nosara, snorkeling on the reefs ...
Already the journey over Cuesta Grande in the mountains to our finca is incomparable. It is the most beautiful mountain road in Costa Rica. The very well drivable gravel road offers again and again spectacular views of the mountains of the Nicoya Peninsula and the Pacific Ocean with its incomparable beaches. In clear weather you can even look down to the Cordilleras of the mainland. In the morning white clouds pass through the valleys and it feels like being a bird yourself. You will love the ride at any time of the day.
Here you will find the real Costa Rica. A small village in which mainly coffee farmers live. You can also find oranges, fruits, vegetables, chicken and cattle here. On Sunday football is played on the Plaza or you meet at the village shop for a chat. Here the horse is still a real means of transport.
On the edge of the village is our Farm.
If you arrive by car we recommend four-wheel drive.
4WD is good, but not necessary. With a four-wheel drive vehicle, you can explore the adventurous environment better.
