About Jonathan Davies
I don't like to talk about myself all that much, but I'll say that I came to Latin America 20 years ago and fell in love with it. Over the course of that time I was a financial consultant se in almost every country in Latin America . When i saw this property, there was no road no electricity no water. I purchased the land and sine then it has been a challenging project ,not easy at all...and has required an immense effort to develop and get to its its current level..The challenge is ongoing and our miantenance burden is muh greater than a normal hotel. Everyone thought that I was mad for several years. Of course no one thinks so now! :)
Jonathan Davies purchased this estate in 2001
Why Jonathan Davies chose La Fortuna
It's quite simply stunning. The volcano view is everything in this part of the country and I have incredible ones. And then of course there is the type of soil and other growing conditions; I intended from the start to create a blended perma-culture environment and so it needed certain growing conditions... light, rainfall, elevation etc. And of course there is very little virgin jungle in this area outside of the protected parks. Much of what is referred to as 'primary jungle' around here is actually second growth forest. So it was both a privilege and a huge challenge to incorporate nearly inaccessible, true jungle into the project. But the results are fantastic.
What makes this estate unique
It is very difficult to find houses with the ability to accommodate larger family groups. While there are plenty of homes which can accommodate up to 10 or 12, groups any larger usually require renting multiple properties at significant expense. Here your entire group of up to 23 people can be accommodated perfectly comfortably. This means being able to keep your group together without having to worry about coming and going to multiple properties. This is something very valuable, for instance when there are children in a group and the adults wish to spend a little time together after the kids have gone to sleep. Since we don't charge any more for having more people stay, the property also represents tremendous value! To provide beds for the same number of people in a hotel would cost several times the price. At the same time the design is such that smaller groups or couples can rent and enjoy their individual quarters without fear of having their privacy intruded on by other guests nor of having theirs intruded upon. The unique architecture and layout provide unparalleled flexibility.
