I spent an amazing week at Finca da Vida in a deep vitality retreat with Secret Fine. The staff was so nurturing, the food revitalizing, and the site regenerating. Can't think of a better place to sink into Pura Vida! Attached is the view from my deck in the Ceiba cabina....

I am a raw vegan,and I found traveling and staying at the hotels is not easy. I found the Farm of Life to be a perfect place with organic fruit, there are the best mangos on the planet, and vegetables. Meals were delicious, creative with variety of tastes. The owners welcome each guest as they are part of family. Brian...

This review is way overdue. I spent the 2015 xmas break in this farm. Met the most amazing hosts, staffs and guests. There is nothing more I can say that no other reviewers haven't said before already! I, however, wanted to provide another angle on how great this place is for book lovers. A special place that allows us to...

One of the most beautiful places to visit while you're in Costa Rica - the property is gorgeous, the food is fantastic, and Brian and Jody (the owners) are a beautiful couple that own the place and make you feel completely at home. They have a brand new natural pool that is cleaned via UV light and the rooms are...

My friend and I spent 3 weeks at the Farm of Life and I must say we're changed for the better. We booked our stay in order to try out the raw food lifestyle for a few weeks and ended up learning so much more about ourselves along the way. The property is beautifully landscaped and the rooms are amazing....

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days to explore eating raw food only, but we experienced so much more. Right from the beginning of our stay we experienced great peace. Throughout the week that peace grew as we were encouraged to walk around the farm barefoot to experience the energy from the ground, it was like walking with...
