Seven years ago, Mateo and Erica Hogan created this space in the jungle of Costa Rica called Finca Bellavista. Their goal was to create a community in which people could enjoy the nature and coexisted without contaminating. This self-sustaining project began taking a total of 62 hectares and currently has more than 600, in which small houses were made of materials such as wood from trees destroyed after heavy storms.
Although the estate is a major tourist hotel in the middle of the jungle, its construction did not affect the ecosystem. This community “on the trees” boasts stunning views.
The nearest village is 2 miles, however, being this estate self-sustaining, its guests does not need go out to buy anything. Each house has a unique design and all the facilities: a community center, lounge, restrooms, fire pits and cafes, plus a pipeline system that takes the water gushing mountain. The buildings are connected to each other by bridges.
