I founded a dreamlike finca with a view of the Pacific, its own water sources and three waterfalls. Then I met my wife Jazmin who owned a large finca, we combined the two lands and founded a cattle farm and the tourism business Hacienda. In 2014, we bought cattle and built up the farm. Today there are around 100 breeding cattle, three breeding bulls and around 90 calves born every year.

    I went horseback riding and had fantastic hosts who not only provided excellent horsemanship but also took me out to dinner, had breakfast with me and went out of their way to ensure I had a magical time at their beautiful Hacienda. The property was filled with horses, dogs, kittens, birds, hens, ducks and more, making it a truly wonderful experience.

    Genial. Todo fue excelente. Recibimos un trato muy amable y nos proporcionaron toda la información que necesitábamos. Además, el desayuno fue delicioso, variado y con una bonita presentación. Ideal para una escapada y cambiar de rutina. El lugar es muy tranquilo y los propietarios adoran a los animales. Las instalaciones son muy acogedoras, con una maravillosa vista al mar.

    Nachdem wir einige Tage in Costa Rica verbracht hatten, kamen wir in Miramar in der Hacienda an und wurden dort sehr herzlich empfangen. Die Besitzer und Betreiber der Hacienda nahmen sich viel Zeit für uns, zeigten uns unsere Unterkunft, die uns sehr gefiel, und erzählten uns viel über ihr schönes Land, während wir einen Kaffee tranken. Am nächsten Morgen überraschte uns Yasmin mit einem spektakulären Frühstück, das wir bisher noch nicht erlebt hatten. Es war ein Frühstück, bei dem es an nichts fehlte: exotisches, schön dekoriertes Obst, Käse, Wurst, Eier und Brötchen. Der Tisch war wunderschön gedeckt und das Essen zauberhaft präsentiert. Dieser Aufenthalt war für uns eine unvergesslich schöne Erfahrung.
