Villa Heliconia, La Finca Lodge in Horse Ranch Outside of La Fortuna

Save
1 of 22
Overview
Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
La Fortuna de San Carlos, Arenal Volcano National Park, Province of Alajuela
The Villa looks out on horse pastures and misty mountains. Fresh soft breezes cool the generous kitchen/dining area. Lush gardens are all around you, emitting night scents and day scents that leave you smiling. Pick fresh fruit from the citric orchard and squeeze your breakfast juice. All the soft noises of animals -- from toucans to horse hooves, the water buffalo’s soft braying, and the baaa of sheep remind you that you are connected to the earth, the soil, the farm.

You are as quiet and private and isolated as you want. Or wander down to the stables - play with the pets, feed some animals, or watch the horses in training. Horses are available for riding (additional cost). The ATV's are fun, too. And if you wish to see the world from above, we operate the only hot air balloon in Central America.

La Finca is a wonderful way to see the beauty of the country. It is a nice blend of local flavor and access to the "must see and do" items on the list. The staff is exceptionally friendly and attentive to all your needs.

I can say that this was by far our favorite part of our trip to Costa Rica. The ranch is about 20-30 minutes away from La Fortuna and all of the closest tourist spots, and I think that is it's best quality. At night, it...More

About the neighbourhood
Our farm is only 20 minutes from Fortuna (the base of fiery Arenal volcano) yet borders on wilderness, rivers and forests where we ride horses and ATV's and hike without the press of tourism. Bird watching and playing in hot springs, swimming in crystalline waters -- all nearby and all private for you. Plus hot springs and belching Arenal volcano only 20 minutes away. It is a great place to raise our family.
The Unique Benefits of this Villa

Peace, tranquility and the earthiness of a working horse farm. So far away from the crowds and the noise, yet 20 minutes from the tourist Mecca of Fortuna, and Arenal volcano.
