As kids, nearly all of us dreamed of constructing the perfect tree house — nestled up high, hidden away from the hectic routine of daily life. Throughout the years, eco-themed resorts have sprouted up to accommodate tree-dwelling fantasies. Now however, there’s a community in Costa Rica where people can live up in the trees all year long.
Finca Bellavista, named for the river that flows through the region, sits in the trees above the south Pacific coastal region of Costa Rica.
Part of their initiative, according to their website is
To provide an opportunity for ecologically minded individuals to reside within the treetops of a unique rainforest ecosystem while promoting the conservation of species and the natural environment.
The Finca neighborhood spans across 600 acres throughout a lush tropical rainforest and reclaimed pasture. It began to cultivate its first residents in 2006 when it became the world’s first planned, modern, sustainable tree house community.
So what sorts of amenities does a tree house community provide?
