Finca Paraiso

4.4 on November 23, 2011

My wife, mother and I stayed here for two nights in October. My wife and were in the Birds of Paradise Suite and my mom was in a smaller room in the main house. Ken and his family were gracious hosts. We ate quite well at the big table in the house, enjoying amazing views of the valley. Our suite was really wonderful--again, stunning views, whirlpool tub, fireplace, nice kitchen--everything you could need. My sister lives close by, so it was quite convenient for us. It might not be the best spot for access to the more popular tourist locations, but it certainly is a perfect spot for peace and quiet in a beautiful, tranquil location. We look forward to returning!

Finca Paraiso - A place beyond your wildest dreams!

5 on October 28, 2011

I discovered Finca Paraiso at B& and made reservations for Oct 2011. I usually rent a vehicle so the drive of about 30 minutes was not only interesting but exciting as well. The roads in CR are not well marked and are somewhat bumpy with a fair share of potholes. For the directionally challenged, the innkeeper might consider meeting the guests at the airport as an escort or taxi. On arrival, I was overwhelmed by the inspiring beauty of the property. The views are stunning. The grounds are superbly manicured and provide vast space for exploring and enjoying the peace and solitude of nature. There were hundreds of different plants, flowers, and trees. There is even a trout pond with waterfall. And, there is a mountain stream with many waterfalls that can be traversed. The inn has an indoor heated pool with a steam room too! As if all this isn't enough, my jaw dropped when I entered the suite. It was a villa with the space of three hotel rooms. The refrigerator was stocked with juice, bread, cheese, jam/jelly, and other foods. There was a fine bottle of wine as a welcome gift. It included a fireplace, living area, whirlpool tub, oversized queen bed, ample closet space and a bathroom with a large shower. There was television with DVD and cable service. Wired internet was also a feature. The room included a terrace with a table for enjoying meals outdoors. But the best part were the windows that surrounded the suite affording beautiful views of the mountains and valleys. I enjoyed time soaking in the quiet which allowed precious rejuvenation, physically, mentally, and spiritually. The innkeeper and his wife were very helpful in suggesting places to go and also in providing directions. They also provide a complimentary dinner of rainbow trout from the pond. A very delicious meal. I highly recommend Finca Paraiso. It will be my getaway of choice when visiting CR in the future. For those wishing further information, I can be emailed at jgdiver at Pura Vida!
