finca bellavista and surroundings, costa rica

In early July we went to Costa Rica with my mom and stayed at Finca Bellavista. Parker took some great pictures. Here are a few of my favorites:

To get to Finca Bellavista, we took a little plane from San Jose to Golfito.

We stayed in this really cool treehouse. Mom was very keen on being “in the canopy” and chose a treehouse accordingly.

To get there, we hiked twenty minutes down this path:

The first day, we went ziplining.

The beautiful river on Finca’s property was great for swimming.

Base camp at the Finca was lush and lovely. There was an incredible suspension bridge:

One day, we took a day trip to Isla de Caño, eight miles off shore. It was a rough ride out and a cold and rainy ride back. Memorable!

Another day, we went sea kayaking in Golfito and got back to shore just in time to see this storm come in.

On the last day, we went to Playa Uvita, a beach with an amazing natural whale’s tail formation off it.

It was a beautiful and creepy-crawly trip (snakes and spiders, oh my!) It was so relaxing, but we were all happy to head back to the land of dry clothes and air conditioning. Ah, technology!
