The Finca Pura Vida is surrounded by mountains and tropical rainforest in an idyllic valley of the Rio Armado, almost 1.5 km from La Suiza (Turrialba) away - far enough to leave all the hustle and bustle behind and close enough to your daily needs to cover even without a car. On nearly 10 hectares of land with tropical vegetation and a small natural river you have plenty of space for themselves.
Whether one is simply lying in a hammock, listening the gentle murmur of the river, listening to the birds or in one of the many quiet spots directly by the river, sitting on a stone meditating or bathing in one of the many pools - there are many ways to get to enjoy the natural, peaceful environment. The ideal place to relax and reload your mind and soul.
I am travelling to Costa Rica for more than twenty years to visit my friends and to enjoy my holidays at my finca. I have studied and worked here and over the years Costa Rica became a second home land for me.

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.
Good starting point for 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.
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.
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.
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.
Guayabo National Monument
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.
