After researching ecotourism in Costa Rica, we decided on the Osa Peninsula for its biodiversity. We chose to stay at Finca Exotica for seven nights due to its reasonable prices, proximity to Corcovado, and the ability to have what sounded like three great meals each day. Our choice never disappointed us. The staff treated us like family. For example, when... More

This is not just a hotel, it’s an experience! Stayed here for only one night in October with my boyfriend and I wish we had had more time! We stayed in one of the tent rooms, which was on a little elevated wooden platform, and had a mini-rancho roof above it. The mattresses are on low, slatted frames and they... More

I really can't praise Finca Exotica enough - it is one of the most beautiful, magical places I have ever been to. It has a very special feel - created through a stunning location, lovely people, a communal philosophy and a simple but beautifully designed complex of gardens, huts and tents. The extra effort needed to get to its remote... More

Me and my girlfriend spent 3 days in Finca Exotica lodge and it was great! They treated us more like friends than clients. The rooms are very confortable and since The lodge is melted inside the jungle, you can see plenty of animals such as monkeys, parrots and hummingbirds just outside your bungalow. The place is just gorgeous!. it is... More

The staff was SUPER awesome. The fact that they took the time to know your name and socialize with you and make you feel like part of the family was fantastic. It definitely was an interesting experience getting there via a small aircraft then taking the 'colectivo' (if you're pregnant I do not recommend it) because it feels like your... More

We stayed in Casa Raiz which is a full duplex for 4 people with ocean view and outside shower: we finally could play "les Robinsons suisses". The lodge is perfectly located near the entry of Corcovado park, and Gaby,... More

Thanks for your kind words, Thimas!! We had a fairly dry October which didn´t have to disrupt any of your plans here on the Osa Peninsula. The lagoon is lush for kayaking; so much wildlife, I believe you got to see a crocodile or two, correct? Eva is waiting here for your massage when you return! We all hope to... More

Excellent food, caring staff and an amazing atmosphere are definitely worth the journey to finca exotica! Simply perfect in every detail, 20km of black sand beach with lots of turtles, scarlett macaws and of course the corcorvado national park in walking distance. Thanks a thousand times for this experience, we´ll be back!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Finca and were absolutely blown away by the location, the staff, the people we met, and the experiences we had during our stay.
