Finca Bellavista is a treehouse community and private nature reserve in the south Pacific coastal region of Costa Rica.

Our self-sustaining arboreal community is a rustic, yet comfortable, private retreat off the beaten path. Our neighborhood is revered as a sanctuary where residents and guests can explore the natural wonders of the rainforest canopy and enjoy what we like to call 'treetop Pura Vida'.

Finca Bellavista, while a one-of-a-kind concept, is also in a one- of-a- kind place. The finca as a whole, comprised of nearly 600 acres of secondary and primary rainforest and reclaimed pasture, provides a nearly custom-built backdrop to house the world's first master planned, modern, sustainable, and truly arboreal community. Perched overlooking the Golfo Dulce and nurtured by two whitewater rivers, the location of this unique enclave is unmatched in its magnificence and pulses with life. While it feels a world away, Finca Bellavista boasts easy access to some of the country's most stunning natural assets, like National Parks, isolated beaches and epic mountainscapes.

There has been a lot of progress to get the community 'off the ground' since its inception in 2006. Our "base camp" is complete and has a sprawling community complex with a dining hall, an open-air lounge, a rancho, a bathhouse, a campfire ring and a wedding garden. Nearly one-half of the community's 'Sky Trail' transportation network is now up and running, offering stunning canopy and pristine river corridor views. Treehomes are starting to speckle the skyline, and a handful are ready to rent to short and long-term for visitors to experience what the Finca Bellavista lifestyle is all about. There are quite a few owners in various stages of creating and building treehomes, bringing lots of energy, soul, and excitement to our growing neighborhood, which is truly like no other in the world.

Though we are providing an experience for humans to dwell, interact, and grow within the treetop realm, we remain committed to being stewards of this land and our environment. Everything we do at Finca Bellavista is done with consciousness, caution and care guided by our personal beliefs. This is sacred ground. As our neighborhood has evolved and become a world- renowned arboreal paradise we have become keenly aware of the issues and challenges facing the world's rainforests. In 2012, we created the non-profit branch of our community, The Bellavista Initiative, to begin the process of manifesting regional conservation goals.
