Finca Rio Perla is a 100 hectare (240 acre) farm along the Perla River (Rio Perla) in the Caribbean Highlands of Costa Rica. It is located on the slopes of Turrialba Volcano (Volcan Turrialba) with elevations from about 1,200 to 2,500 feet (375 to 750 meters). Finca Rio Perla is about 2.5 hours drive from San Jose via Route 32 to the Caribbean port city Limon. It is about about 2.5 hours drive from San Jose and from Puerto Viejo. The farm is only about 30 minutes drive from Pocora and EARTH University (which also has a bilingual private school K-12), and about 30 minutes drive to Siquirres (the local commercial/transport center, with a public hospital).
Including the Rio Perla, there are 5 permanent water sources flowing through the property (and multiple springs and streams). With differences in elevation Finca Rio Perla has several amazing waterfalls and natural pools, and a very diverse ecology. We are blessed with moderate temperatures, great breezes, wonderful views, beautiful birds and flowers; and minimal bothersome insects.
We are trying to create a diverse agro-ecological landscape to provide food, feed, fuel, and shelter in a sustainable manner. We also provide a home and food for hundreds of types of birds and other wildlife.
Activities include hiking, swimming, horseback riding, fishing, making sugar cane juice, farm tours, bird watching, farm activities (yes, get your hands dirty) and just relaxing in nature.
We also have pleasant lodging and really delicious food from the farm.
We offer an authentic Tico experience that everyone can enjoy. Pura Vida!

Updates from Finca Rio Perla
We are harvesting cocoa and experimenting making different cocoa products. We had a good harvest of coffee that we are drying and then processing. We are also planting more cocoa and coffee trees; along with other fruit trees and coconut and banana, and shade trees. Our dairy cows are increasing production of milk and we have been expanding cheese production and experimenting making new dairy products. We are also using more farm grown feed for the tilapia fish, and planting more grasses that are good for tilapia fish.
We have a new project Eco-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".
