MEET AND GREET
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 Fila Tortuga.
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.
Additionally, you can find information on living off-grid, property for sale and general information about the Finca Bellavista community and surrounding area.
MEET THE OWNER
Adam Rayfield first visited Finca Bellavista back in 2014 and dreamed of calling it home ever since. His dream became a reality as he became the new owner of Fila Tortuga in 2021. Born and raised in Oro-Medonte, Ontario, Canada, Adam spent his childhood outdoors hiking and exploring the forests around his home. Currently, Adam is the Head of the Physical Education Department and Sports Coordinator at an international school in Caracas, Venezuela.
In his spare time, Adam enjoys hiking, camping, bird watching, scuba diving and practicing improving his nature photography skills. In addition to Venezuela, Adam has lived and taught in Egypt, South Korea, China, Thailand and travelled extensively around the world. He considers the jungles at Finca Bella Vista to be the most incredible place he has explored and is excited to share his home away from home with you.
