    Finca Bellavista is a hidden gem, the treehouse is amazing even though arriving at the place means going through quite an exercise.

    La migliore esperienza del nostro viaggio in Costarica, per tre giorni ci siamo dimenticati l’orologio, il telefono, il traffico e il rumore. E’ stato fantastico, peccato che il tempo sia volato, avrei voluto restare molto di più. Certo ci vuole spirito di adattamento, bisogna abituarsi ai suoni della natura, ci sono le zanzariere, ma si è nella foresta e qualche insetto riesce ad entrare peròTamandua è una casa ben organizzata, tanto spazio, elettricità sufficiente ad alimentare il necessario e acqua calda quanto basta per fare la doccia. Arrivarci non è difficile, c’è un fiume da attraversare ma si può fare in sicurezza, poi c’è da camminare un poco ma il paesaggio intorno è bellissimo.

    Our stay at the Tamandua Tree House was one of our favorite accommodations in Costa Rica. You are walking 30-40min to the tree house from the parking and have to cross a small river, but once you arrive, you are in a remote, well-built, pretty house with nice views of the trees. Peaceful and clean.
    Would recommend a 4WD to arrive at the parking.
    We would come back longer next time

    Amazing place in the jungle. Great bird watching right from the balcony – sip your coffee and listen to the sounds of the forest all around you!
    The descriptions from Piotr and the community are spot on and prepare you for the 4×4 route up to the parking, and then the river crossing / short hike up the hill to the place. (Thanks to Matt for meeting us and showing us to the place!).
