About Us

Located in one of the most beautiful and rural mountainous areas of Costa Rica, Finca Las Alturas de Puriscal is only an hour away from the main international airport in San Jose (SJO). Finca Las Alturas is easily reached by car, bus or taxi.

Coffee, Oranges and Limes, Oh My!
Lime harvest, las alturas, puriscal, costa ricaOur 300-acre farm has been a working coffee farm for 40 years, once owned by the well-known Kornelio Orlich family, brother to the former president of Costa Rica. In addition to coffee we also produce several varieties of citrus, bananas and plantains, which keeps us busy all year round. We are particularly proud of our coffee. Roberto personally processes every bean he picks and this is the only coffee we serve our guests (to rave reviews, I might add!).

A Taste of Farm Life

You’ll have an opportunity to get up close and personal to the curious and docile cows, rambunctious calves, and adorable piglets, as well as help out if you like. Kids of all ages are guaranteed to be entertained. All of Finca Las Alturas’ milk is supplied by cows who live on the farm.

Trail Riding & Hiking

  2. We really enjoyed our visit at your farm today, as well as our conversation with you. Olivier is still talking about the kiss the horse gave him and Sabrina is really happy to have been able to sit on a horse!

    We are looking forward to see you again. Please let us know which days and times would be better for you. And please also tell us how much it would cost to spend some time doing ground work with the horses and the children.

  3. Miss you guys! Just not the same without the horses, dogs, cats…and the two legged herd as well. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
