Welcome to TERRA VIVA

We are a 300 acre property privately owned by a Costa Rican family.

With this wonderful piece of land we want to combine protection of the Cloud Forest (with over 150 acres of Private Reserve), education by hosting students and general public to join us from few hours to many days in our different activities, recreation (with so much space for outdoors enjoyment) and promote change among our neighbors by being a cutting-edge dairy operation with innovative, healthy and environmentally friendly practices.

We are on the quiet side of Monteverde, neighbors to the Santa Elena Reserve, just 3Km from town. 60% is primary forest, 30% is pastures for the dairy farm and horses, and the remainder has been recently devoted to forest regeneration. Besides comfortably accommodating 30 people.

Biological Reserve

Finca TERRA VIVA ofrece:

  • Reserva Silvestre Privada
  • Caminos y senderos para la observación de vida silvestre
  • Único en Monteverde, montar a caballo a través del bosque lluvioso, arroyos, con vista al mar y un hermoso paisaje, manantiales de agua pura de montaña.

WE LOVE ANIMALS…

WILD AND DOMESTIC.

OUR DOMESTIC ANIMALS GIVE US COMPANY, TRANSPORTATION, PROTECTION, EGGS AND MILK!

GUESTS AT FINCA TERRA VIVA CAN VISIT THEM. IT REQUIRES A BIT OF COMMON SENSE TO AVOID ANNOYING THEM SO THEY DON’T REACT IN A WAY THAT CAN HURT SOMEONE.  THIS IS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO ALWAYS WATCH YOUR CHILDREN.  DON’T LET THEM WONDER AROUND NEAR OUR DOMESTIC ANIMALS WITHOUT SURVEILLANCE!

AFTER EVERY MILKING SESSION (TWICE A DAY) GUESTS CAN JOIN US TO FEED THE CALVES WITH BABY BOTTLES.  IT IS FUN!

 

TERRA VIVA is a farm

a biological reserve

and a peaceful place to stay

 

TERRA VIVA ofrece:

  • Wildlife Private Reserve
  • Roads and trails for wildlife watching
  • Unique in Monteverde, horse back ride through the cloud forest, streams, ocean view and beautiful scenery.
  • Springs of pure mountain water.
  • Opportunity to participate in some dairy related activities.

AMAMOS A LOS ANIMALES...
SALVAJE Y DOMÉSTICO.
¡NUESTROS ANIMALES DOMÉSTICOS NOS DAN COMPAÑÍA, TRANSPORTE, PROTECCIÓN, HUEVOS Y LECHE!
LOS HUÉSPEDES DE FINCA TERRA VIVA PUEDEN VISITARLOS. SE REQUIERE UN POCO DE SENTIDO COMÚN PARA EVITAR MOLESTARLOS PARA QUE NO REACCIONEN DE MANERA QUE PUEDAN DAÑAR A ALGUIEN. POR ESTO ES TAN IMPORTANTE VIGILAR SIEMPRE A SUS HIJOS. ¡NO LOS DEJES PASAR CERCA DE NUESTROS ANIMALES DOMÉSTICOS SIN VIGILANCIA!
DESPUÉS DE CADA SESIÓN DE ORDEÑO (DOS VECES AL DÍA) LOS INVITADOS PUEDEN UNIRSE A NOSOTROS PARA ALIMENTAR A LOS TERNEROS CON BIBERONES. ¡ES DIVERTIDO!
