Off the beaten path, natural wildlife preserve, a haven for any type of traveler. Great for people looking to relax, for bird-watchers, for foodies, for sunbathers, for campers, for adventurers, for hikers, for off-roaders, for kayakers...pretty much everyone. Would recommend wholeheartedly to anyone looking to do something different.

I came to have an immersion in nature and wildlife and this did not disappoint. Oh look, the scarlet macaws are circling my cabana, and this is one of the few places in the world that their populations are increasing. We were in "Mango" and slept to the roar of the ocean between two hillsides of rainforest. To get the... More

To stay at Finca Exotica is to immerse yourself in a truly unique and special place. Firstly one must consider that Finca was not designed to be a commercial hotel, like so many other establishments. Rather it was carefully designed by Marcus, a visionary architect, to be a place for people from all walks of life to come together and... More

Last Thursday I married my best friend on Playa Carate in front of Finca Exotica. I didn't have to do anything except relax and get myself ready that morning! I simply told the resident florist more or les what I wanted and never even went down to the beach to see what they had done. My now husband created a... More

I loved the place it is very beautyfull and the Bungalows are awesome. The Staff is super sweet, friendly and helpfull. The food was excellent and yoga classes really relaxing. We had the 2 bedroom Bungalow (1 Queen and the other 2 single beds). Showering "in the free" was an additional special to our stay.

Finca Exotica is a very special place, set in its own extensive plot of virgin rain forest, tumbling down to a wild Pacific beach. We stayed six nights and loved feeling close to the rich variety of life around us. We enjoyed the imaginative meals prepared from fresh organic ingredients from the garden. We particularly enjoyed the communal dining experience,... More

I stayed at Finca Exotica for a more extended period of time and absolutely LOVED it. The property is beautiful - I loved the outdoor showers, tents and cabins, and open-air restaurant ("Casa Grande"). The atmosphere is really comfortable - I felt at home very quickly! I think this was especially the case because of the staff - very friendly... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finca Exotica eco lodge is a Wildlife Refuge property in this pristine area of Costa Rica, and the closest place to Corcovado National Park accessible by car.Our beach lodge is equipped to meet all of your needs – be it a romantic couple’s escape, a group retreat, a professional conference or a family vacation. Our facilities surround our central meeting place, Casa Grande, which hosts the organic food restaurant with a communal dining table and stretches out to an amphitheater suited for presentations and lectures by day and dance parties by night. Between them is the bar and together they all encompass the terrace where you can lounge under the open sky or swing in a hamock in the shades of almond trees, while Scarlett Macaws are feeding on them. Tents, cabins, rentals and other facilities stem out from this centerpiece to provide easy access near the beach, an isolated meditation ambiance and quaint trails that lead you through the labyrinth of exotic plant life. ... more   less
