About the property

La Postita Eco-cabins is a magical place, in a paradise of peace and tranquility in rolling agriculture and tropical hills overlooking Turrialba, Costa Rica, a half-way point between oceans where you can relax in a fully equipped cozy 2-bedroom (queen-size bed and bunk bed) cabaña with all the comforts of home. Walk in the peace and quiet of trails that meander though the fruit trees on this 7-acre property or just relax on the deck and enjoy the spectacular view of the countryside and lake below. It's easy access to the many natural wonders of Costa Rica-where you can explore the enormous diversity and abundance of flora and fauna including fun activities such as bird watching; white-river rafting; horseback riding; volcano hiking; ocean beaches; fishing; wildlife photography. Turrialba is noted for river rafting in the Pacuare, Reventazon and Pejiballe rivers, and many eco-tourism activities. In 2013, La Postita entered into partnerships with local organizations that offer horseback riding for pickup at our doorstep, bicycle tours, volcano trekking, tree-top canopy tours, with specialty tours to a snake farm, orchid nursery, and coffee or sugarcane factories. This is a magical place, whether you are looking for the perfect relaxation point to get away from it all, a base for in-country touring, or a quiet place for your studies, a get-away weekend, or to live in. It's located only a three to four hour flight from most US hubs, and a short 1 -1/2 hour drive on paved highway from the national capital: San Jose.

Spectacular views, Very relaxing, Friendly helpful host

  • 5 of 5

Coming from the Hudson Valley in New York State, Dmitri and I were not disappointed! We felt as if we had our own piece of heaven at La Postita. Spacious, roomy, great furnished kitchen. Antonio was most gracious. The solar was more than sufficient. We would certainly recommend this place and return ourselves! Yes, you need a 4 wheel drive and make sure you allow enough time to arrive before dark. While here for a 2 week stay we went out on 2, 2 day explorations. 1 to the east coast and 1 to the west coast. Both times we were were very happy to return to La Postita.

Thank you Carl and Antonio for a wonderful vacation.

Lot's of atmosphere, amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Situated at the end of a 2 km rough track in a sugar cane plantation (4 WD is recommended but I think given other roads in Costa Rica a careful driver could manage it with a regular car) this place has 2 homes from which the one at the end is by far the best. Lot's of atmosphere (like souvenirs from Africa travels of the owner) and a stunning view from the large glass windows or balcony to either La Suiza or Turrialba. Big fully equipped kitchen, big bathroom and 2 comfortable and cozy bedrooms, the main one with the same stunning view. Solar energy with battery storage which lasted through the night also on a cloudy day. Caretaker takes care well. Direct environment super quiet but you may hear some sounds from La Suiza (some dogs barking); on a rainy night they apparently don't feel like barking and then it's absolutely quiet. Top ranking, especially considering the price.
