There is no office on the property or onsite staff. The community is made up of private home owners, residents, work exchange applicants and guests.

There is also no phone signal coming up the road to Finca Bellavista or at the car park so a time to meet with a member of the community needs to be prearranged. Once a booking is confirmed, you will be able to share your arrival day through the Fusion Forum where a member of the community will make themselves available to meet you.

Once you have been introduced to an available community member, you will be able to update them directly should your travel day or arrival time change. Once onsite, they will escort you to my home and ensure everything is operational and comfortable before leaving you to enjoy Leon. 


You are welcome to sign up to the Fusion Forum before making a booking, it's free to do so and you can ask questions directly to the community
