The SpaceFINCA PURA VIDA Finca Pura Vida is situated in the middle of lush mountains and rainforest in the idyllic valley of the Armado River. The nearest village, La Suiza, is approximately 1.5 km away – far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of unspoilt nature but close enough to meet your daily requirements even without having to use the car. The ten hectare ground of Finca Pura Vida offers ample space to swim in the river, to take walks, to sunbathe or to simply relax. Your holiday home is built in a typically Costa-Rican style. There are two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a spacious roofed patio. Both bedrooms are furnished with a queen-size bed and on open wardrobe. The bathroom offers a shower, a sink and a toilet. The kitchen is well equipped with china, glasses and cutlery, sauce pans and frying pans as well as a big fridge/freezer. Bed linen, towels and tea towels are there for you to use. Should you have further requirements, your hosts Flora and Joaquin will be very happy to help you. Due to the pleasant temperatures, you will most likely spend most of your time outside. Hence, you will enjoy the 50m² roofed patio where you can eat, drink, relax or party. There are cooking facilities with a barbecue and a gas-cooker with two rings, a big table with benches and chairs as well as a hammock. At Finca Pura Vida there are no direct neighbours. If you feel like socialising, take a stroll to La Suiza and you will find that the Ticos, as the Costa Rican people call themselves, are very open-minded, friendly and laid-back people who will readily have a chat with you even if your Spanish is less than perfect. Guest AccessFeel free to use al facilities in the house and go everywhere at the Finca. Make yourself at home. Interaction with GuestsShould you have further requirements, your hosts Flora and Joaquin will be very happy to help you. The NeighborhoodGood starting point for ACTIVITIES: Explore the beauty of Finca Pura Vida by foot and enjoy spectacular views all around. There are so many paths to take – you will discover something new every day. Rafting: Costa Rica is well-known for its excellent rafting facilities. The rivers Pacuare and Reventazon – both close to Finca Pura Vida – rank among the top ten rafting rivers in the world. Volcano-tours: You should visit the volcanos Turrialba and Irazu which you can see from the finca. The Turrialba is active since a few yours so you should get information at the park-administration if the access is permitted. National Park Tapantí: Tapantí is located a few kilometers south of the Orosi Valley. Walking In the park you have the oportunity to see abundant tropical rain forest and with a bit luck some wildlife. Furthermore, you can have fun canyoning, you can go on guided walks or mountain bike trips or you can enjoy a day on the back of a horse. For a real adventure, try Canopy! It’s an exciting and novel way of seeing the rainforest. Hooked to a steel wire rope, you will fly from treetop to treetop and experience the rainforest from a bird’s eye view. If you have no head for heights, however, you better stay on the ground. Guayabo National Monument If you are interested in Costa Rican culture, go to see the Guayabo National Monument. At the foot of Turrialba volcano, approximately 20 km North East of Turrialba town, there is a archeological excavation site showing a pre-columbian settlement. From Fica Pura Vida, take a day trip to the biggest National Forest in Costa Rica, to Parque Internacional de la Amistad. Here you will find Costa Rica’s highest mountain, Chirripo, and some aboriginal people reserves. Getting AroundThe property is very close to La Suiza, approximately 1.5 km. So it is close enough to meet your daily requirements even without having to use the car. Also there is good bus conection to San José and to the carrebean coast. If you want to see some highlights in the region like volcanos, Tapantí and Guayabo for example and don't have much time it is better to have a car. If you are going to rent one you should take a four-wheel-drive. The roads in Costa Rica are quite poor and so is the road from La Suiza to the Finca. It's a dirt road which is quite dificult to manage with a normal car.

The SpaceOur cabins were created to offer our guests the ability to disconnect and completely relax. However, we completely understand that in our digital era it is sometimes necessary to stay in touch with the rest of the world and we therefore offer free high speed wifi in all of our cabins. We have built the cabins with our harvested lumber and are keeping our impact on our environment to a minimum. We recycle, compost and use rain water for all our needs. Each cabin comes equipped with bottled drinking water, a small fridge and coffee maker. Each cabin also has a front porch with breathtaking views of the Turrialba valley and the majestic Turrialba and Irazu volcanos. As the volcano is currently active, you can witness smoke plumes floating from the top of the volcano. We offer horseback rides with our guide. He has developed various routes in the area, all levels of experience. Our most popular ride is the one that takes you into birdwatching areas, sitting on the horse and not having to worry about walking gives you a great opportunity to see so much more. Drink from our natural spring and see how we are a major part of the water shed that supplies the town below us. We offer meals made mostly with organic vegetables and fruits from a local small farmers coop. We can help schedule white water rafting on the pristine Pacuare River. We encourage you to come with enough time to enjoy all we offer. We look forward to having you as a guest. Guest AccessOur guests have access to the dining room and the farm on which the cabins are located. We also have a variety of roads and trails that our guests are welcome to explore. Since the farm is focused on sustainability and in promoting the natural ecosystem, you will be able to fully appreciate the variety of flora and fauna found on the premises. We recommend bringing good shoes for hiking and river rafting. Interaction with GuestsWe understand that you are visiting us to relax and enjoy the environment. Thus, we will try to keep out of your way as much as possible. However, we are available at any time our guests might have a question, need something, or simply want to learn more about Costa Rica and the local culture. Your hosts are very knowledgable in any aspect of Costa Rica and gladly share with our guests as much as they need and want to know. The NeighborhoodWe are quite isolated and adequate planning regarding transportation is required. Our guests can choose to rent a car, but a 4x4 is very necessary as the roads are quite rough. In fact, for those guests that are planning on making it up to the cabins in their rented vehicle, we strongly suggest that only drivers experienced in rough terrain attempt this. We also will gladly pick you up from the local town, San Rafael, and shuttle you up and down the mountain whenever needed. We highly recommend a GPS which can be rented at the car rental office. Getting AroundGetting around Costa Rica by bus is safe and stress free. Let us know if you plan do take this option and we can make some suggestions. Other Things to NoteSince we are rather remote, we offer breakfast included and the options for lunch and dinner at an additional cost. We also offer smaller meals of sandwich or salad, chips or fruit, and a beverage.

Guest AccessYou pretty much have access to everything in the house. You are welcome to use our bikes. If you use our bikes, please do not leave them unattended. You will not have access to the garage as we store a boat and our car there. If you have a car, you will have plenty of space to park it in the front. Interaction with GuestsUnfortunately I will not be able to meet you personally, but I will be in touch with you by phone. If you have questions text me or call me, I will be more than glad to help. Relatives take care of the house while we are gone. You will meet my mom and dad to get the keys to the house on your day of arrival. The NeighborhoodI am sure that you will love La Suiza, it is a small town but it has pretty much everything you need within walking distance. There is a couple of pizza places, bakeries, meat stores and vegetable stands. There are also bar restaurants in the main street. Pocho's has great chicken and chicharrones. We have wonderful kind neighbors always willing to help. If you are seeking to interact with locals and experience the culture in its pure form, this is the place to be. Getting AroundWe are 20 minutes or less from Turrialba by car or 30 minutes by bus. There are several bus stops in La Suiza. There is one at the soccer field, another by the Banco Nacional right in front of the Centroamericana Church, and another in the middle of town ( buses only go through the main road) Other Things to NoteIf you have a car, go to Pacayitas, a town north to La Suiza to enjoy the view and buy some fresh cheese. Look for Don Rafael. He owns a little Cheese factory. There you can buy the famous Turrialba cheese, powder cheese, Mozzarela and natilla (similar to sour cream, but creamer) We are also close to all kinds of adventures. Our region is famous for the Pacuare River, a world class whitewater rafting rapids. If you are thinking of a rafting trip, Pacuare river is the best, and we are very close to it. You can probably arrange transportation from La Suiza.

      Villa Luz de las Nubes is perched on the side of a mountain overlooking the city of Turrialba and facing (at a safe distance) the Turrialba Volcano. The view is spectacular. The house is very comfortable and spacious, fully appointed and modern. Sleeps seven or more people. The house is spacious. The huge windows create an incredible natural ambiance. The three large bedrooms sleep seven and air mattresses are available if you need them. The kitchen is large and well equipped. We do not have heat or air conditioning. You won't need it. The windows are screened and I choose to leave them open both day and night. Guests may wander the entire farm if they choose. There are wonderful spots for photography and birdwatching. They can help care for the animals or learn to milk a cow! The horses are available for lessons or a guided tour. Please make yourselves at home. Mi casa es tu casa! Our wonderful caretakers, Yenory and Alfredo, will be your hosts. They live in a separate house on the finca and will be available 24/7 to assist you. Housekeeping, laundry, and cooking can be arranged but are not included in the rental price. Our area is quiet and safe. The gate is locked at night . If you choose to eat out rather than to use our kitchen to prepare meals there are several excellent options in the area ranging from typical to gourmet. There are many interesting excursions easily accessible if you have a car. These include: white water rafting, kayaking, canyoning, canopy tours (zip lines), botanical gardens, archaeological ruins, butterfly farm, coffee plantation tour, horseback riding, bird-watching and trips to the volcanoes. You may even choose a trip to the wonderful Caribbean beaches and the Sloth Rescue Center in Cahuita! We suggest that you rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle at the airport as the access to the farm is steep. You probably wouldn't choose to walk it frequently! I will be happy to send detailed directions and gps is available with most rentals. Be sure to bring your camera, good hiking shoes and a sense of adventure! Villa Luz is located near the small village of Tuis in coffee country. It is halfway between San Jose and the Caribbean coast. A perfect location to explore some of the less traveled and more interesting places in the country. The farm itself is very private yet totally accessible by 4-wheel drive vehicle. The air is cool and clean and the view is spectacular. If you love nature this is the place to be! Nighttime is incredible with the lights of Turrialba twinkling in the valley below to the accompaniment of a chorus of frogs. Among the many adventures to choose from in the area are whitewater rafting, kayaking, canyoning, canopy tours, horseback riding, birdwatching, pre-Colombian ruins, two volcanoes, botanical gardens,and hotsprings to name a few. And if you want to explore the incredibly quaint Caribbean coastal towns be sure to include the Aviarios del Caribe, the only sloth sanctuary in the world and home to more than a hundred sloths in various stages of rehabilitation. And while you're on the coast, how about a boat trip to Tortuguero to see endangered sea turtles in one of their few remaining natural habitats.

They can help care for the animals or learn to milk a cow! The horses are available for lessons or a guided tour. Please make yourselves at home. Mi casa es tu casa! Our wonderful caretakers, Yenory and Alfredo, will be your hosts. They live in a separate house on the finca and will be available 24/7 to assist you. Housekeeping, laundry, and cooking can be arranged but are not included in the rental price. Our area is quiet and safe. The gate is locked at night . If you choose to eat out rather than to use our kitchen to prepare meals there are several excellent options in the area ranging from typical to gourmet. There are many interesting excursions easily accessible if you have a car. These include: white water rafting, kayaking, canyoning, canopy tours (zip lines), botanical gardens, archaeological ruins, butterfly farm, coffee plantation tour, horseback riding, bird-watching and trips to the volcanoes. You may even choose a trip to the wonderful Caribbean beaches and the Sloth Rescue Center in Cahuita! We suggest that you rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle at the airport as the access to the farm is steep. You probably wouldn't choose to walk it frequently! I will be happy to send detailed directions and gps is available with most rentals. Be sure to bring your camera, good hiking shoes and a sense of adventure!
