Planning a trip to Costa Rica? Overwhelmed by all the hotels, resorts, hostels and lodging options? Look no further because we recently found the perfect place to stay while on vacation in Costa Rica.
Tucked into the Escalares mountain, on the Southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica, lies a secluded, serene jungle paradise. With your first step onto the lush, tropical grounds of Tree of Life Cabinas, located perfectly between Uvita and Dominical, you will instantly feel your worries melting away.
An eco-friendly, luxury, romantic boutique bed and breakfast, Tree of Life Cabinas was designed with your peace and relaxation in mind. Nestled into 4 acres of pristine jungle, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the refreshing mountain breeze will keep you cool, while you watch the vibrant sun melt into the horizon.
Modern and tropical, each cabina is 480 square feet with luxury amenities, featuring orthopedic mattresses for comfortable, healing, rejuvenating sleep.
The cabinas include furniture hand-crafted by a local artisan, an indoor/outdoor shower with a rain showerhead, private toilet room, a terrace with a hammock, mini fridge, hair dryer, plush towels and luxury linens, and a stunning view of the pool and of the sun setting over the ocean.
A wise, old mango tree towers over the property, protecting it lovingly with it's impenetrable branches, while casting shade and shelter to all living things gathered beneath it's cover. This "Tree of Life" was the first thing the owners, Ben and Nate, noticed about this property. Naming the property "Tree of Life Cabinas", they designed their home and cabinas around this magical mango tree.
The Tree of Life is a symbol used and recognized throughout the world. Ben and Nate proudly gifted this name to their lovely, charming piece of land to represent their intent to live their lives connected to nature. Wandering their tropical oasis you can enjoy the winding pineapple garden, indigenous plants along with ornamental natives, a greenhouse, fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Speaking of fresh food, part of what makes Tree of Life Cabinas so special is that you can enjoy flavorful, local, gourmet dishes prepared and designed by Ben, who has over 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry. Taking full advantage of the abundant, overflowing gardens that border the property, Ben prepares the meals with fresh, seasonal ingredients picked right outside your bedroom door.
Surrounded by wildlife, you will wake to the howls of the howler monkeys, and the toucans calling across the jungle valley to each other. Lounge in the hammock on your private terrace, and admire the vibrant birds, butterflies and monkeys that call this paradise home. If you follow the charming walking paths around the grounds, you just may be lucky enough to meet the resident sloth.
While private and secluded, you are only a few minutes away from some of the most breath-taking beaches in all of Costa Rica, as well as some of the adrenaline-inducing activities this country is famous for. Ziplining, whale watching, horseback riding, beach hopping, waterfall rappelling, snorkeling, surfing...there are endless ways to spend your days in the Costa Ballena area. The famous Whale's Tail beach is a must-see, as well as the dramatic Nauyaca waterfalls.
Immersed in nature, this tropical oasis is the paradise your mind paints when daydreaming about a warm, healing, peaceful vacation. Relax by the pool, swing in your hammock, wander the tropical gardens, admire the wildlife, and enjoy a delicious, gourmet meal, while life's worries melt away. Soon you will forget what day it is, as you become one with this pristine pura vida paradise, Tree of Life Cabinas.

It would be a tragedy to die, having never really lived. Which is why my husband Andy and I quit our jobs, sold our house and decided to chase our dreams. We moved to Costa Rica without a plan, and this is the story of our adventure.
