Finca Buenavista is a unique experience in the highlands of Costa Rica. It

is located about 2 kilometers from the ' Braulio Carillo State Reservation'

at an altitude of +/- 2,000 meters. It's about 40 minutes from the Poas

Volcano, 35 minutes from the capital city of San Jose, 15 minutes from the

Britt Coffee Tour Plantation. About 15 minutes from the City of Heredia, a

very typical place and where you would go to the supermarket. Approximately

2:30 from the Caribbean Coast and about 1:35 from the Pacific Ocean and

beaches. There is a grounds keeper on the property who attends to the

Barbecue and the fireplace, and can also cook and help in other matters.

The property is approximately 60,000 square meters with walking trails

throughout. The year round temperature is 25 C/77 F, in the day and 13 C/

56 F at night, perfect for a fireplace.

Host kindled a fire for us and provided breakfast supplies for when we woke up the next morning. View was outstanding and cottage was super comfy, rustic and charming. Property is vast, including beautiful walking trails with horses, ancient tress and waterfalls. Groundskeeper was nice and showed us around. Would high recommend and we won't hesitate to return here next time we visit San Jose. Thank you!!!

The driver picked us up at the airport in a Toyota 4x4, we stoped by the market to stock up on provisions, and the party never ended. The driver took us to the bars and casino in San Jose every night, and drove us home (with our "dates") lit the fireplace and DJ'd salsa til sunrise. Slept and ate all day and then did it again!
