Turrialba house description
Finca Pura Vida is situated in the middle of lush mountains and rainforest in the idyllic valley of the Armado River. The nearest village, La Suiza, is approximately 1.5 km away – far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of unspoilt nature but close enough to meet your daily requirements even without having to use the car. The ten hectare ground of Finca Pura Vida offers ample space to swim in the river, to take walks, to sunbathe or to simply relax. .
Your holiday home is built in a typically Costa-Rican style. There are two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a spacious roofed patio. Both bedrooms are furnished with a queen-size bed and on open wardrobe. The bathroom offers a shower, a sink and a toilet. The kitchen is well equipped with china, glasses and cutlery, sauce pans and frying pans as well as a big fridge/freezer. Bed linen, towels and tea towels are there for you to use. Should you have further requirements, your hosts Flora and Joaquin will be very happy to help you.
Due to the pleasant temperatures, you will most likely spend most of your time outside. Hence, you will enjoy the 50m² roofed patio where you can eat, drink, relax or party. There are cooking facilities with a barbecue and a gas-cooker with two rings, a big table with benches and chairs as well as a hammock.
At Finca Pura Vida there are no direct neighbours. If you feel like socialising, take a stroll to La Suiza and you will find that the Ticos, as the Costa Rican people call themselves, are very open-minded, friendly and laid-back people who will readily have a chat with you even if your Spanish is less than perfect. .
Explore the beauty of Finca Pura Vida by foot and enjoy spectacular views all around. There are so many paths to take – you will discover something new every day.
You should visit the volcanos Turrialba and Irazu which you can see from the finca. The Turrialba is active since a few yours so you should get information at the park-administration if the access is permitted.
National Park Tapantí:
Tapantí is located a few kilometers south of the Orosi Valley. Walking In the park you have the oportunity to see abundant tropical rain forest and with a bit luck some wildlife.
Costa Rica is well-known for its excellent rafting facilities. The rivers Pacuare and Reventazon – both close to Finca Pura Vida – rank among the top ten rafting rivers in the world.
Furthermore, you can have fun canyoning, you can go on guided walks or mountain bike trips or you can enjoy a day on the back of a horse. For a real adventure, try Canopy! It’s an exciting and novel way of seeing the rainforest. Hooked to a steel wire rope, you will fly from treetop to treetop and experience the rainforest from a bird’s eye view. If you have no head for heights, however, you better stay on the ground.
If you are interested in Costa Rican culture, go to see the Guayabo National Monument. At the foot of Turrialba volcano, approximately 20 km North East of Turrialba town, there is a archeological excavation site showing a pre-columbian settlement.
From Fica Pura Vida, take a day trip to the biggest National Forest in Costa Rica, to Parque Internacional de la Amistad. Here you will find Costa Rica’s highest mountain, Chirripo, and some aboriginal people reserves.

A little piece of heaven
A little piece of heaven
The first week we spent in Costa Rica was at this Cottage.We loved to be outside on the deck.It is a very quiet location and the kids were able to play in the brook by themselves.The pictures show the Cottage exactly the way it is.There are not a lot of tourists in the area,what we really enjoyed.It is a good idea to have a 4x4 in Costa Rica.This is definitely a good spot to go if you want to relax and enjoy a simple way of living! We are looking forward to come back in the future.

Frieden und Gastfreundschaft pur
Zweifellos gibt es Orte, an denen man kilometermäßig weiter von Europa entfernt ist, - keinesfalls jedoch kann man dem hektischen Treiben vollständiger entkommen als auf der Terrasse der Finca „Pura vida“. Wenn man mit einem Glas chilenischen Weins, einem eiskalten Imperial-Bier oder einem Ron centenario in der Hand den sternenübersäten Himmel bewundert und dem Treiben der Glühwürmchen zuschaut, während der nahe Fluss über glattgewaschene Steine rauscht, der bei Tage willkommene Abkühlung bietet, wenn immer die Hitze zu groß wird, dann kommt Frieden über den Besucher. Dann weiß er, dass er nicht nur weit von Europa entfernt ist, sondern auch in einer neuen Welt gelandet ist, im Kreis der gastfreundlichen, liebenswürdigen Ticos, die keine Gelegenheit zum Feiern auslassen: Leben pur - „pura vida“ eben.

Finca Pura Vida, Costa Rica
I spent two weeks at Finca Pura Vida in February 2013. It is a magic place - ideal for getting away from hectic every day life. Finca Pura Vida is very peaceful and quiet, the surroundings are beautiful and there is a lot to explore on the grounds of the Finca and in the vicinity. Karl is very welcoming and most helpful. The house is simply furnished but contains everything you need for a pleasant stay. We most enjoyed the huge roofed terrace and the occasional bath in the river. In the little village nearby, La Suiza, there are three small supermarkets, a fruit and vegetable store, a butcher and - last but not least - a very friendly place to drink and eat, Pocho's Bar. Even if you do not speak Spanish (I don't, unfortunately), you will have no problem getting around.I can recommend Finca Pura Vida to anyone who is looking for an peace and quiet and authentic Costa Rican lifestyle.
