Imagine waking up in your own treehouse, nestled in the rainforest canopy. You can hear the calls of exotic toucans and macaws just outside your window. Organic farm-to-table meals, hiking trails, and yoga classes are at your fingertips. This magical place in the rainforest is called Finca Bellavista Treehouse Community, and it just might be the most unforgettable getaway you’ll ever experience.

Finca Bellavista spans 600 acres in the mountains of southern Costa Rica. This beautiful area was slated to be logged for timber, until it was rescued and converted into an ecotourism mecca. In keeping with these founding values, Finca Bellavista is all about fostering connections with the land. A 4x4 vehicle is necessary to reach the community. Once there, the retreat is pedestrian access only—so you’ll be able to fully disconnect and reset.

If you’re looking to convene with nature and like-minded travelers, these incredible Costa Rica treehouses are calling.
