The SpaceSet on a mountain top cloud forest with year round cool tropical climate, views and water falls. Stay in a newly constructed cabin, hike the mountain and explore 360 degrees of nature at every step. Views of Volcan Turrialba and full moons can be seen from the comfort of your bed Temperature rarely reaches much above 85F in the day and 65F on the coldest nights so no need for AC or Heating here. We recommend guests bring jeans, socks and sweaters. Visitors see amazing things here. Brilliantly starry nights and full moons, world class bird watching, an orchid exhibition with over 100 specimen. The pure life. Hosts live in the main lodge, a comfortable distance from the cabin and can set up private waterfall, swimming hole, and jungle tours. Guest AccessGuests have access to mountain hiking trails, swimming holes, tilapia pond, water falls, and their private yoga/dance/music/relax space. Interaction with GuestsFirst off, we help guests get acquainted with the home area, which covers about 5 acres. Each day, we can set up guided tours to the guests to explore something special in the surrounding 85 acres of rain-forest. That could include trips to private swimming holes, waterfalls, and intense jungle hikes. Our host Mariluz runs Mari's Place, a private dining experience offering traditional Costa Rican dishes and grill favorites in a private picturesque setting overlooking the river. Mari's Place is walking distance from the accommodation and is quickly becoming popular with foodies. Our guests often take advantage of having Mariluz as their private chef for their entire stay. Feel free to send a message to inquire about getting an all inclusive rate. If guests have questions, or need anything, we are here to help. But we are definitely interested in giving guests their privacy. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is safe and private. Our closest neighbors are 1km away, and we look out for each other. You will not find other tourists around, in fact, you won't find too many people around. It's safe to say the animals in our town outnumber the people, and we're OK with that. For dining, Mari's Place is walking distance from the accommodation and is quickly becoming popular with foodies. Read over our reviews to get an idea what past guests have said about the food. We offer two other Cabins for rent across the road so you might bump into another couple or family. Getting AroundWe are centrally located between San Jose and the Caribbean towns of Tortuguerro, Limon, Puerto Viejo and Cahuita. You can be in SJ in two hours or on the beach in two and a half. But once on the mountain, many guests don't think to leave till it's time to go. The town of Guapiles is down below and we often arrange guest pickups at the bus terminal because you will need a 4x4 to calmly drive up here. Other Things to NoteLooking for an off-road adventure? The roads here are rocky (and rock!). We cater to those with a love for the road. Like the saying goes, if it happens on two wheels, it's cools with us. Unless you are biking or taking your motorcycle up here, you will need a 4x4. Sorry, that economy compact car might not make it up here without making you liable on that damage-insurance policy. Heck, it might be worth it though ;) If your party is bigger than 4, we offer two other cabins across the road that can accomodate six people in total.

    The Space Finca Las Frambuesas is a 7 acre farm with a river, small lake, forest, an orchard, 2 traditionally built houses, a fire pit, 3 dogs and a horse. Aside form renting our two beautiful houses, Casa del Lago (Lake House) and Casa del Pozo (Well House), we are starting an organic farming project and organizing holistic courses. If you stay 3 or more days we will share with you a basket of our own organic produce for your enjoyment! The farm is located in San Isidro de Heredia, less than 40 minutes from the International Airport, only 25 minutes from San Jose by car and just 5 minutes from Braulio Carrillo National Park; a tropical rainforest with one of the highest levels of biodiversity in Costa Rica. More than 90% of the park is covered in primary forest. Casa del Lago was built in the early 90’s as a family house, with the vision of upbringing our two children in an ideal country side environment not so far from quality educational centers and the comforts of the city. The space will feel very homey and warm, with a cozy traditional kitchen, a fire place, and three bedrooms that have been decorated with a personal family touch. The property is perfect for small weddings, contact us for more information on special events. Because of the proximity to San Jose and the peaceful surroundings Casa del Lago is ideal for home births. Contact us for more information. The Area The area offers many interesting things to do, from chocolate tasting tours, to hikes into the rain forest. Our farm is a perfect base for visiting the volcanoes Poas and Barva. We will provide you with a list of things to do and places to eat or to order. Getting Around Public transport is available, although limited. Taxis can be arranged easily. Rented cars are probably the most convenient means of transportation. Upon request a transfer from the airport or/and from San Jose to the farm can be arranged at a market rate. If you have further questions don’t hesitate to contact us, we will answer quickly and will be more than glad to help you out!

Guest AccessRoom, Deck w/view of the Rainforest, private bathroom. Interaction with GuestsYes Other Things to NoteOne night accommodation (SGL / DBL / TPL occupancy): Bungalows are cozy and inviting; built over a stone base with wood floors and a balcony. They offer unforgettable views of the forest, the mountains and the stars. As an added bonus, you may be delighted by a surprised visit from a Blue Morph butterfly, the scent of wild orchids or the call of a rare bird. Nature Walking Trails (Accompanied by a bilingual expert guide): On our trails you can appreciate the heart of the rainforest; where there is an abundance of plant and animal species. From these trails we perceive the forest in a different way; we have more time to take pictures, search for wildlife or stop in a specific spot and look around us. That is why the walk through our trails is an excellent combination to get to know and appreciate the rainforest. Morning tour for birds or nature observation: A nature morning walking to spot the most interesting species of birds and animals in the rainforest, our Atlantic park has been honored for the National Audubon Society as the 1st place for the Christmas Birds Count. An expert naturalist bilingual guide during guests stay in our lodge: with our expert bilingual naturalist guides, passengers will discover the hidden treasures in our flora and fauna and how easy it is to make every wish come true. Three meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have selected a very balanced yet interesting menu incorporating all-time favorites and some of the best Costa Rican ingredient Not Included: Phone in the room. Room service. TV. WIFI. After 9 pm no power except for emergency lights. Other tours expect from the ones noted. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
