A Unique Story

The Brenes family initally bought their farm back in 1951 and it has since been passed down through three generations. After starting with just one horse and cow along with a small plot of land with an old ramshackled house, the Brenes family has turned their farm into one of the best sustainable tourism destinations in Monteverde.

Their mission now is to share their amazing homeland and promote sustainable adventure tourism to everyone who visits Monteverde. Come visit Finca Modelo and see how the Brenes family is doing amazing work for both their tourism business and their surrounding environment and community.


Familia Brenes Tours works to protect and preserve the culture of three generations worth of Costa Rican history. After beginning a small school in La Cruz, Vicente Brenes layed the groundwork for the Brenes family pressence in the Monteverde region.
