We loved our stay at Finca Exotica - the environment, the people, the animals. You could not get a more friendly set of people to take care of you. From the initial welcome, to the unexpected upgrade, to the interesting discussions with Markus and Gabby about their vision for the Finca and their effort to realize it, this was a... More

We were lucky to be able to stay in the Tikki tents as well as one of the Cabinas and loved both options for different reasons. The tents have a true feel of camping in the middle of Mother Nature, albeit more comfortable as you have a proper bed and are well protected from any creepy crawlies being safely zipped... More

We drove down to Carate and looked at the few options right next to the Corcovoda Nature Reserve. Finca Ecolodge is hands down the best option. It's comfortable, simple and the owners and staff are fantastic. Marcus invited us into the kitchen to talk and get to know each other so he wouldn't have to stop talking or cooking. The... More

This is the perfect place to to completely let go of all the noise and speed of the daily grind. The remoteness of the location, simplicity of life, amazing staff and accommodating lodge are just some of the things that make this place great. Being right in the jungle, the wildlife is abundant all around you, showering outdoors while watching... More

Highlight of this lodge is the location, and its feel of being in the jungle, with its wildlife, rather than being near the jungle. Being able to take an outdoor shower or sleep while listening to howler monkeys or watching spider monkeys move from tree to tree is priceless. My only complaint would be the bed mattresses are a bit... More

Hi Jim! We appreciate you taking the time to write the review, thank you! We wish you would have told us about the holes in the mosquito net and we would have changed it over straight away, we have many spares as unfortunately the nets do damage very easily. Remember for next time! To be honest, we were all a... More

Spectacular finca, in the middle of the jungle! We loved the experience "end of the world", nature, jungle, animals, being alone at the beach, hike to the Corcovado National Park, ... as there is no wifi nor network, you can switch off your phone, special feeling nowadays :) Our "room" (wooden open structure) was well structured/ equipped and just perfect....

I had the chance to be at this beautiful location for a week. The setting and the staff were all wonderful! It was truly a chance to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life, and connect with people, critters and nature. Thank you!

Finca Exotica is at the actual END OF THE ROAD on the southern end Osa. A half a mile past it is a jungle trail that lead to the Corcovado. We stayed two nights in a Tiki tent. That is a large tent (you can stand up in the middle on the full sized platform bed) that is up on... More

We stayed 2 nights in this wonderfully situated gem of a place. It felt like living in the rainforest next to the sea, with lovely, friendly hosts and delicious food. Exotica it is! The central dining and meeting area is gorgeously designed, with generous use of local wood and perfectly adapted into its natural setting. The only thing I would... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the top cabin with a sea view. Each morning we had scarlet macaws flying over. We arranged a taxi transfer via the lodge from the small local airport.
