This was the best vacation I have ever taken. I went with my wife, brother, sister and their spouses. Finca Las Nubes was more than I ever expected. Chris, the owner, and his daughter Natalie were great hosts. The staff was wonderful. It takes me 2-3 days to relax when I go on vacation. At Finca I was relaxed immediately. I truly did not know that I could get that relaxed.
Every morning I would get up there would be fresh coffee and someone in the kitchen preparing fresh juice and breakfast. I have never had more than a taste of coffee a couple of times, and never liked it. At Finca I had a cup every morning because it was so good. It was more like hot chocolate than coffee because it was fresh, from Chris's other farm, and roasted perfect. Every meal we had on the farm was amazing. We would spend half the meal trying to decide if it was better than the other meals. The entire farm was amazing and what Chris has done and is planning on doing is even more amazing.
The title does not lie. Everyday Pepito, the Monkey, would play with Madonna, the Deer. They were either snuggling together or Pepito would just go for a ride. A couple of mornings we woke up to howler monkeys in the trees outside our house. There was amazing wildlife all over the farm. There are new trails being cut, and we were the first visitors to walk on one that was brand new. We never felt unsafe on the farm. Jose mans the front gate 24/7, and if you bring him a coke he may show you the monkey dog show. If you are lucky enough to stay with Chris and his family you will not regret it.
The only regret I have is not purchasing one of the hammocks. I was worried about getting it on the plane. Now that I am back in the US i realize it would have been worth it.
The payment is required up front. It may seem a little weird, but we read reviews on here that had us prepared and we had no issues.
I could write much more, but I don't think you would believe it. You must see and experience for it yourself.
