Finca Rio Perla is a 100 hectare (240 acre) farm located along the Perla River (Perla River) in the Caribbean Highlands of Costa Rica about half-way between the capital San Jose and the Caribbean port of Limon.
We are located on the slopes of Turrialba Volcano (Volcan Turrialba), with elevation from about 1,000 to 2,500 feet (350 to 750 meters). We have several amazing waterfalls and natural pools, and 5 permanent water flows through the property. We are blessed with moderate temperatures, great breezes, wonderful views, and beautiful birds and flowers; and most importantly, minimal insects.
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 really good food.
We offer an authentic Tico experience that everyone can enjoy. Pura Vida!

In March 2021 we re-opened "Soda La Perla de La Alegria", in the center of La Alegria de Siquirres, the closest town (about 10 minutes drive). Soda La Perla is based on a "farm-to-table-to-mouth" model and serves fresh and processed products from the farm. The plan is to serve fast food ("comida rapida") during the day, and at night be a restaurant featuring fresh tilapia fish and other foods from the farm.
We are harvesting cocoa and beginning to harvest coffee and macadamia nuts. We are also planting more cocoa and coffee and macadamia trees; along with other fruit trees and coconut and banana, and shade trees. Our dairy cows and chickens are increasing production of milk and eggs, and we have been expanding our tilapia production. We are also expanding our cheese production.
We have a new project Quintas Lomas La Perla, the sale of lots and lots with houses; located between Finca Rio Perla and the center of the village. The lots are individually titled with utilities (water, electricity, telephone) and easy road access. All the lots (1/3 to 1/2 acre) border perennial streams and are in easy walking distance to the primary school and its large futbol field and the crystal clear water of the Perla River and "Playa La Perla".
