Overview

Turrialba House Rental Photos and Description

Fantastic location, large covered terrace, barbecue area, swimming in the river

Finca Pura Vida is situated in the middle of lush mountains and rainforest in the idyllic valley of the Armado River. The nearest village, La Suiza, is approximately 1.5 km away – far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of unspoilt nature but close enough to meet your daily requirements even without having to use the car. The ten hectare ground of Finca Pura Vida offers ample space to swim in the river, to take walks, to sunbathe or to simply relax. .

Your holiday home is built in a typically Costa-Rican style. There are two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a spacious roofed patio. Both bedrooms are furnished with a queen-size bed and on open wardrobe. The bathroom offers a shower, a sink and a toilet. The kitchen is well equipped with china, glasses and cutlery, sauce pans and frying pans as well as a big fridge/freezer. Bed linen, towels and tea towels are there for you to use. Should you have further requirements, your hosts Flora and Joaquin will be very happy to help you.

Due to the pleasant temperatures, you will most likely spend most of your time outside. Hence, you will enjoy the 50m² roofed patio where you can eat, drink, relax or party. There are cooking facilities with a barbecue and a gas-cooker with two rings, a big table with benches and chairs as well as a hammock.

At Finca Pura Vida there are no direct neighbours. If you feel like socialising, take a stroll to La Suiza and you will find that the Ticos, as the Costa Rican people call themselves, are very open-minded, friendly and laid-back people who will readily have a chat with you even if your Spanish is less than perfect. .

ACTIVITIES

Explore the beauty of Finca Pura Vida by foot and enjoy spectacular views all around. There are so many paths to take – you will discover something new every day.

Volcano-tours:

You should visit the volcanos Turrialba and Irazu which you can see from the finca. The Turrialba is active since a few yours so you should get information at the park-administration if the access is permitted.

National Park Tapantí:

Tapantí is located a few kilometers south of the Orosi Valley. Walking In the park you have the oportunity to see abundant tropical rain forest and with a bit luck some wildlife.

Rafting:

Costa Rica is well-known for its excellent rafting facilities. The rivers Pacuare and Reventazon – both close to Finca Pura Vida – rank among the top ten rafting rivers in the world.

Furthermore, you can have fun canyoning, you can go on guided walks or mountain bike trips or you can enjoy a day on the back of a horse. For a real adventure, try Canopy! It’s an exciting and novel way of seeing the rainforest. Hooked to a steel wire rope, you will fly from treetop to treetop and experience the rainforest from a bird’s eye view. If you have no head for heights, however, you better stay on the ground.

If you are interested in Costa Rican culture, go to see the Guayabo National Monument. At the foot of Turrialba volcano, approximately 20 km North East of Turrialba town, there is a archeological excavation site showing a pre-columbian settlement.

From Fica Pura Vida, take a day trip to the biggest National Forest in Costa Rica, to Parque Internacional de la Amistad. Here you will find Costa Rica’s highest mountain, Chirripo, and some aboriginal people reserves.

Un lugar perfecto para desconectarse, excelente ubicación frente a un río de aguas limpias y jacuzzi natural. La casa con todas las comodidades del hogar, muy bien atendidos por el capataz de la finca Don Joaquín y su esposa. Recomiendo el carro doble tracción en invierno. Perfecto para disfrutar la naturaleza.

A beautiful, tranquil location next to the river.

  • 5 of 5
This is a simple, yet beautiful home in the most stunning location. There are many types of butterflies, birds, lizards and other types of wildlife in the area and you can spend hours just watching the days go by. My husband and I spent four of the most peaceful months here. The river next to the house is amazing and is almost the only sound that you will hear. The property is near the lovely town of La Suiza where you will find everything you need to help make your stay enjoyable. The administrators, Joaquin and Flora are the most amazing people, very warm and welcoming and very helpful. The owner of the property is very knowledgable about the area and Costa Rica and is never more than an email away. We loved our stay so much, that we both shed a tear when we had to leave. We have already booked our next stay for his wonderful place.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5
The first week we spent in Costa Rica was at this Cottage.We loved to be outside on the deck.It is a very quiet location and the kids were able to play in the brook by themselves.The pictures show the Cottage exactly the way it is.There are not a lot of tourists in the area,what we really enjoyed.It is a good idea to have a 4x4 in Costa Rica.This is definitely a good spot to go if you want to relax and enjoy a simple way of living! We are looking forward to come back in the future.

If you like real nature , you must be here

  • 4 of 5
The house was very clean, everything was in it. But to come there you must have a 4 wheel drive, otherwise you have to walk 1,5 kilometer up and down. We have done this it was very nice to do. We like to be with the habitants of La Suize and we have eat always in the house on the terras. Because after the long way up we like to have the stillness of the house, this was very pretty.

Public Transport:

From the international airport Juan Santamaria, take a taxi to the bus station in San Jose for the bus to Turrialba (15.000 colones or € 20). The bus to Turrialba leaves every hour on the hour. It will cost you approximately 1.300 Colones or € 2 and the trip takes about one hour and a half. At the bus station in Turrialba change to the bus to La Suiza. The bus ride from Turrialba to La Suiza takes about thirty minutes. In La Suiza get off at the stop by the Plaza (football field). Ask the driver and he will let you know where to get off. (See below)

By Car:

From the airport, take the motorway in the direction of San Jose. Before you reach San Jose take the bypass 39 via Cartago. Once you have bypassed San Jose, you will reach the legendary Panamericana (2). Follow the Panamericano in the direction of Cartago until you reach the exit for Paraiso, following the Old Road (10) in the direction of Limon. In Paraiso follow the signs to Turrialba. The road wil take you through Cervantes, Juan Vinas and through Turrialba. About 6 kms beyond Turrialba you will cross the river Rio Reventazon, you will see the signs towards La Suiza.

Follow the road until you reach La Suiza. In La Suiza drive along the main road. On your left you will see the Banco Nacional, then the village football pitch. Once you have passed the football pitch, look out for a fruit and vegetable store on your right. Turn right off the main road here at the fruit and vegetable store. You will cross the river Rio Tuis on a small bridge. After you have crossed the bridge, turn left onto a dirt road. From here on like for all Costa Rica is a Four-Wheel-Drive recommendable. At the next crossroads (about 200 m), keep to your right and follow the road uphill. After about 1 km you will reach a little height from where you have a breathtaking view across La Suiza, Turrialba and the vulcano Turrialba on your right. On the left you look over Finca Pura Vida and the river Armado. After a few metres you reach a little red house by the road on the left. Pass this house and after another 200m you will see the gate entrance to Finca Pura Vida.
