Finca Host

Meet Johnnie Abrahams, the gracious host of Finca Land. In 1999, when David arrived in Costa Rica, he encountered an individual living in solitude on the opposite side of Bananito. As he crossed to meet this person, he heard, “Here, you don’t need to put on your shoes.”

David extended his stay for months and returned year after year, immersing himself in the art of living in this unique environment until he became a neighbor to this enigmatic figure.

Johnnie, a warm and welcoming host, has a vast network of friends and family in the area. His lifelong connection to this land has given him a wealth of knowledge about the natural world and life. He also constructed a spacious “Rancho” with a stunning water view.

During your visit, you can savor a homemade family meal on a wood stove and receive a guided tour of the surroundings. Relaxing by the riverside or even taking a refreshing dip in its waters is delightful.

For those seeking a truly immersive experience, a little higher up the landscape, there’s a cabin within a jungle garden where you can spend the night. This retreat has all the ingredients for an exceptional off-the-beaten-path adventure.
