About Bob Vaughan
We have lived in Florida and Costa Rica our whole lives. We are 3rd generation Floridians. The property in Costa Rica was purchased in 1978 and used it for Ornamental plant production the last 34 years to supply our nursery operation in Florida. The house on the farm sits on approx 500 acres of land. Over 300 acres of this is secondary rainforest protected in a program we decided to join to keep the natural bird corridor open from the National Park, through our property ,on down to the coast. We have always loved taking friends down to Costa Rica and showing them the beauty of the country and our area. We wanted to expand our vision of
having people know Costa Rica, our zone, and our property more intimately. To do this we thought of renting our private home in one of the most spectacular locations I could think of. We have traveled the world and still feel this is one of the hidden gems we've kept secret for along time. But now ,with a 17 station zipline located in the jungle on the property, a class 3-4 river running right behind the house for rafting, and all the other beautiful sights, it's time to let in the rest of the world to see what they have been missing. Please join us in an adventure of a lifetime, that we have enjoyed for a lifetime. It's time to open the gates of Hacienda La Linda for all the world to see!
