The Orosi Valley is Costa Rica’s secret gem. Smack dab in the middle of the country, you’ll have easy access to any other adventure you want. And with perfect climate—average daily temps in the mid 70’s—the area is perfect for adventure tours, birdwatching, other escapades with nature, or just relaxing. But be forewarned: your private, green, energy efficient bungalow in the mountains will be so seductive and comfy, you may never want to leave.

Помещението
Welcome to Finca Good Life! By the way, that’s not just a name; it’s our philosophy. Living the good life is what we do everyday, and our desire is to share it with you for a few days. But what in the world is a finca? In Spanish it means “farm.” We don’t have anything like a huge Texas ranch, or a vast corn field in Iowa. No, it’s not that kind of farm. Maybe you should think more about Old MacDonald’s place. But put it on a mountain-top…at 4000 feet…in Costa Rica. Now you’re getting the idea.Yes, we have a few chickens…and geese…and guineas. They strut around striking the most delightful poses. Speaking of strutting, don’t be surprised when Ben and Jerry—the twin turkeys—run up to gobble bienvenidos (welcome.) We have the sweetest dairy goats you’ve ever seen. And (with a little help from me in the kitchen) they produce a wide variety of homemade, organic, artisan cheeses. From Manchego to Brie to Chevré and more, they will entrance your taste buds.
Of course, we also have our good-natured pups. And what would a farm be without a barn cat. Today a lot of folks call what we do, homesteading. We just call it the good life.

The municipality we live in is called Paraíso (paradise.) There’s not a place in Costa Rica that isn’t stunningly beautiful. But our piece of paradise is extra special.

Can you imagine looking to the right and seeing not one, but two sleeping giants? During your visit you won’t have to imagine it, you will have a view of two towering volcanos. Look a bit to the left and the sight of a charming hamlet…complete with church spires…will come into focus in the distance. Don’t forget to look over your shoulder—because there is our verdant mountain valley laid out in front of you.

Waterfalls cover the opposite summit as easily as the coffee fields blanket the hillsides. And the sky in between is dotted with the lilting Swallow-tailed Kite—one of the coolest birds on the planet. With its deeply forked tail and bold black-and-white plumage, it is unmistakable in the summer skies. Flying with barely a wingbeat and maneuvering with just a twist of its incredible tail, it chases dragonflies through the crystal blue yonder. After rearing its young in nearby treetops, the kite migrates to wintering grounds in South America.
Sound good?
Well, you really have to experience it all in person. (unique benefits)
Your private cottage is just the start of what awaits you. (Move over Pottery Barn, the comfortable tropical decor is enchanting.)

Достъп на гостите
The entirety of our sublime 8 acres is yours to enjoy. From the secluded cedar forest at the pinnacle of our property to the avocado orchard below; from the garden/greenhouse to the BBQ grill /Smokehouse--it's all at your disposal. And don't forget, we are a working hobby-farm, so all of our animals are waiting to show you around.

Други неща за отбелязване
Should you wish to acquaint yourself with our good life in a more interactive way, we can arrange the following activities for you during your stay with us—just be sure and let us know at the time of your booking so we can give you the one-on-one personal attention you deserve.

Artisanal Cheese Tasting and Wine Luncheon
Our cheese cave is always full of some mighty-tasty cheeses that are aging to perfection. We’ll choose several varieties (whatever happens to be at the peak of aging during your visit) and pair that with wine and fresh-picked tropical fruit for an unforgettable lunch experience.
$25 per person.

Cheesemaking Workshop
Perfect for a couple or a family. We’ll make that most famous of all French goat cheeses: Chèvre!You’ll see the process get started, but the real fun kicks into high gear when you get to design your very own flavor combinations.And then you’ll have it to enjoy during the rest of your stay—if you can keep from eating it all up the first day.
Approximately 2 hours $25 per person.

Hands-on Homestead Sausage Making
While we do not butcher any of our animals (they are pets and part of the Finca Good Life family) we do make homemade sausage. From links to breakfast patties, and whether you grill some up on your private smokehouse grill or just fry some up for breakfast, you’ll have the freshest and the “best-est” sausage you’ve ever eaten.
Approximately 3 hours. $35 per person.

Goats 101
Meet the “girls” and have a truly “hands-on” experience as your learn to milk the goats. Also included, gathering farm fresh, organic eggs. Combine this with the cheesemaking and/or sausage making classes above and you’ll have the makings of a breakfast to tell your friends about. Talk about true farm-to-table freshness!
Free.

Goats 201
Do you live a charmed life? You’ll think you do if you visit us during kidding season—that’s when the goats are having babies. Whether you are witness to the miracle of birth or just play with those darling, cute baby goats, you’ll have the exploit and photo opportunity of a lifetime—and we’re not “kidding.”
This one is on the house, too.

Cachí, Provincia de Cartago, Коста Рика

Restaurante Casa José
Looking for that perfect dinner spot for a romantic night out? Or just to celebrate the good life as you close your time with us? Our friend José will prepare something special in his unique French/Tico fusion style at this 5-star Trip Advisor restaurant. El Café de Chumi
This is a genuine Costa Rican soda (think Central American diner) and it’s the real McCoy. Our sweet friend, Mirta, will prepare a bona fide, typical Costa Rican meal. Be sure and read the heartwarming story of the café’s origin while savoring the best Costa Rican coffee you’ll ever find. After you finish, take time to walk across the dam on Lake Cachí—it’s far more spectacular than you can imagine.

La Casona
Have a meal in the middle of a coffee plantation while overlooking beautiful Lake Cachí. Consider going on Sunday for the huge brunch buffet. But this is a favorite spot for upper middle class Ticos who come to the country for a weekend getaway, or a wedding. Get ready, it can get crowded, but who knows, you might be the one the catch the bride’s bouquet.

Cafe Cristina Coffee Tour
Have a personal guided tour through a real, working coffee farm with our good friends, Linda and Ernie. They created the first all organic, shade-grown coffee farm in Costa Rica and it’s conveniently located nearby. Plus, it’s the best coffee in all of Costa Rica. You will definitely want to take some back as the perfect gift for friends and family who have been suffering through the rat race while you’ve been having the time of your life here.

White Water Rafting
Breathe in the fresh Costa Rican air as you go rafting down the Grande de Orosi River for nearly 4 miles of Class III rapids, all the while surrounded by lush trees and mountain vistas. Brace yourself for excitement when the cold mountain river waters caress your skin. This is the closest white water rafting available from San José. Best of all, it’s only minutes from your oversized bungalow here at Finca Good Life.

Escalada Cachí
The most popular spot in the entire country for rock climbing is Escalada Cachí. And lucky for you, it’s only 10 minutes from Finca Good Life. Everything you need is available for rental directly from them.

Private Birding Tour (seasonally availability)
Costa Rica is a bird-watchers Shangri-La. But that doesn’t mean that only experienced “birders” should have all the fun. Our buddy, Nesto, can take you on a private tour. We recently had friends tell us that with Nesto at the helm, they spotted 66 different species of colorful Costa Rican birds in one morning. And until you try it, you can’t believe how amazing the experience is.

Tapantí National Park
Sometimes also known as the Orosi National Park, these forests are home to over 45 different species of mammals including kinkajous, tapir, deer, raccoons and monkeys, plus close to 300 kinds of birds. And aside from swimming, hiking, and birdwatching, visitors can also enjoy trout fishing between the months of April through October.

Orosi al Natural Spa
Dry saunas, wet saunas with sugar scrub, swimming pool, jacuzzi, and massages—this place has it all. What’s more, it’s all outside in a garden setting that overlooks the surrounding tropical vistas. And it only gets better with the cocktails and fresh fruits provided along the way.

Irazú Volcano National Park
This is the most visited national park in Costa Rica and it’s centered around the largest (and highest) volcano in the country, which has a surprisingly moon-like landscape. Be sure to wear your warmest clothes—it gets cold at 11,000 feet of elevation.

Lankester Orchid and Botanical Gardens
This is one of the world’s most renowned orchid gardens. And while orchids do often steal the show at Lankester, there are several other excellent collections including bromeliads, cacti, and Japanese gardens.

Haunted Durán Sanitorium
Purported to be the most haunted site in all of Central America by Ghost Hunters International, you will step back in time as your relive what it would have been like to have been treated at this now-abandoned 1920’s world-class tuberculosis hospital. I guarantee none of your friends will have ever have had this experience. Those who go say it is a highlight trip, and a photographer’s dream site. Who knows, maybe you’ll catch of snapshot of the famous ghost nun…or even Elvis.

Volcanic Hot Springs
Relax in waters from the centuries old mineral hot springs that flow throughout the region. There are several places nearby that offer both volcanically heated thermal baths as well as regular swimming pools

Basilica de Cartago
Not only is the architecture breath-taking inside and out, but this is the most important religious site in all of Costa Rica. Every August 2 the “romería” occurs when half of the nation’s population walks from all corners of the country in a pilgrimage to pay homage to La Negrita. But you don’t have to wait till August to see this beautiful piece of history. P.S. You don’t have to walk either.

Ruins of Ujarrás
The Ruins of Ujarras are the site of an ancient village where the first church in Costa Rica was built in the mid-1500s. It was originally a Spanish Colonial church, and you can see the influence of Spain in the design. Almost two centuries ago the village moved up the mountain due to massive floodings; it is now known as Paraíso. Today the ruins are surrounded by beautiful gardens where you can spend a lovely time.

Orosi Mirador
This scenic overlook has vast views of the entire Orosi Valley. You’ll see the Rio Reventazón shimmering as it snakes its way between the mountain passes. The park is replete with grills and picnic tables, but I recommend you just throw a blanket down on the sweeping hillside under a giant Cipres tree and breathe in Mother Nature’s gift. A picnic here ain’t a bad idea either!

Guayabo
Guayabo is the largest discovered archeological site in Costa Rica. These impressive ruins are located in the midst of a lush tropical rainforest. The remains of this forgotten ancient civilization have been called the most significant site between Mexico and the famed Machu Picchu of Peru. You’ll gain a good insight into what life was like there from 1000 BC to 1400 AD. Ancient cobbled roads, stone bridges, house and temple foundations, and still functioning aqueducts are the background for petroglyphs and unusual gravesites.

Casa del Soñador The Casa del Soñador (The Dreamer’s House) is famous for its sculptures made from coffee wood. This is a quick stop on the way to any of the other areas described here but it is a real one-of-a-kind treat. And the perfect place to grab some special authentic souvenirs for cheap. Be sure to say hello to our friends, Miguel and his brother Hermes, the woodcarvers.

Zip Line
Want to go flying through the trees? There are two different canopy zip lines nearby. Just makes sure you sail through the treetops like Tarzan and not George of the Jungle.

Colonial church Orosi
For another quick but culturally interesting stop, check out the oldest active church in Costa Rica. What a treasure! The Franciscans left a trove of art and religious icons from the last several centuries in this church and museum.

Feria in Paraíso
This is the local Farmers’ Market, but it is so much more. Besides getting a chance to see (and sample) about a bazillion fruits and vegetables you’ve never heard of before, it’s the place all the expats run into each other and exchange hugs and stories. Of course, the Ticos are doing the same thing—it’s as much a social event as it is grocery shopping. It’s held every Saturday morning, but get there early as it can get crowded.

There’s something about being Native American that has always caused me to view the world in a fresh, distinctive way. Like the first time I ever saw Ray. My mother and I had just opened a dress emporium near the Snake River Canyon. (We sold dresses for $3.99!) On our way to our little boutique one bright morning we stopped to window shop at the local dime store. I saw the cutest boy inside who was carrying a huge ladder down the stairs. Suddenly he tripped and fell and that ladder was wrapped around his head. I laughed so hard. My mother said, “You’re going to marry that boy one day.” I blushed. But I was already in love, and I have been ever since. We’ve always been adventurers. Like the time Ray come home one December—and without any previous warning said, “I just bought your Christmas present. It’s an Italian restaurant on St. Thomas.” So we loaded up two kids and stuffed everything we could into a VW van and moved to a Caribbean island. Years later (and too many wondrous stories to tell you now) we moved back to the States. During the 57 years since I first saw him in that store window in Idaho, Ray and I have continued to follow an assortment of dreams. I’ve been a nurse; I’ve owned an ice cream parlor. Ray worked for Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. We are prize-winning Chili Cook-off winners. For years before pulling up stakes for Costa Rica, I owned a professional staffing company, and Ray was in charge of umpteen university dining services. We’ve been to all 50 states and lived in 35 different places. Why? Because Ray always said he wanted to know what was “on the other side of the mountain.” Living on our mountain-top in tropical Costa Rica, we never need to move again, because we now can see what is on every side of the mountain—and it’s unconditional love, unquestioned acceptance, and natural beauty. Ray calls it the meaning of life. The Costa Ricans call it Pura Vida. Whatever you call it, we’ve found it here, and we want to share it with you.
