Come visit and/or stay on an amazing farm in the Caribbean Highlands!
Finca Rio Perla is a 100 hectare (240 acre) farm located along the Rio Perla (Perla River) in the Caribbean Highlands of Costa Rica. Being on the slopes of Volcan Turrialba, with elevation from about 350 to 750 meters (1,000 to 2,250 feet), we have several amazing waterfalls and natural pools, and we are blessed with moderate temperatures, great breezes, wonderful views, beautiful birds and flowers, and a relative lack of nasty insects (like mosquitoes).
We are about 2 to 2.5 hours from San Jose and the airport, 1.5 hours from Limon, and 2 hours from Cahuita and 2.5 hours from Puerto Viejo. We are also only about 30 minutes from Pocora (and Earth University for Sustainable Development), and 30 minutes from Siquirres (and whitewater rafting on the Pacuare River with Rios Tropicales or Exploradores Outdoors). We are also about 10 minutes from the town of Alegria, that has several mini-supermarkets and other basic shops. There is a major bus station, several large supermarkets, and a new hospital in nearby Siquirres (all within 30-40 minute drive).
=> Easy access by car and bus/taxi (we can help arrange transport).
Activities include hiking, swimming, horseback riding, fishing, farm tours, farm activities (yes, get your hands dirty), and just relaxing in nature. We also have pleasant lodging and good food.
We offer an authentic Tico experience that everyone can enjoy.
Pura Vida! see the pictures below:
