WORLDKINGS - Worldkings News - America Records Institute (AMRI) – Finca Bellavista: World’s first planned, contemporary and sustainable treehouse community

08-09-2021

(Worldkings.org) The Finca Bellavista community concept was founded in 2006 by founders Erica Andrews and Mateo Hogan following a chance site visit.

Finca Bellavista is a treehouse community in the south Pacific coastal region of Costa Rica. This private retreat is a magical place where residents and guests can explore the natural wonders of the rainforest and enjoy a treetop lifestyle that exemplifies Costa Rica’s national phrase ‘Pura Vida’.

The Finca Bellavista community concept was founded in 2006 by founders Erica Andrews and Mateo Hogan following a chance site visit. At the time, the 62-acre property was being marketed for sale as a timber harvest site. Both felt compelled to find a better fate for this enchanted land, which had a draw that neither has been able to explain ever since.

As neither had the financial means to purchase the land, they brainstormed ways to finance the purchase, and create a different method that would ultimately take the land out of the realm of possibility of being clear cut. Erica brought up the idea of creating a treehouse village within these trees, and envisioned something resembling the Ewok village in Return of the Jedi.

Nearly 600 acres of secondary and primary rainforest provide a custom-built backdrop to house this arboreal community – the first of its kind in the world. Perched overlooking the Golfo Dulce and nurtured by two whitewater rivers, the location of this unique enclave is unmatched in its magnificence and pulses with life.  The finca is a true sanctuary for those that love nature and want to immerse themselves in the wonders of the rainforest. While it feels a world away, the close by Interamericana Highway provides easy access to modern-day amenities like airports, supermarkets, hospitals and restaurants, along with some of the country’s most stunning National Parks and reserves.

While Finca Bellavista is not a fancy hotel or a full-service resort, the community’s modest and customized amenities provide for a simplified lifestyle in a rustic, yet comfortable ambiance. The community ‘base camp’ enables access to a unique selection of activities, tours and services. Electronic bike and zip line tours, yoga classes and movie nights are available, along with food and beverages services, concierge, guest and property management services.
