The lodge is located on Carate beach, next to Corcovado National Park. The place is absolutely beautiful with large sand beaches, a colored garden and the proximity of the jungle. All the site has been designed by Marcus. The wooden bungalows are really nice and comfortable, especially the oudoor showers with outstanding views. You can practice yoga, enjoy the beaches... More

Thanks for your review! As you say, we are located next to Corcovado National Park, making us a great stop off point before and after your big hike. There is no better place to get your boots off and reflect on your time whilst swinging in one of our many hammocks throughout the property. Thank you for coming and we... More

Go back to your childhood... How many of you built tents out of blankets or cardboard boxes and now you dream of feeling young again. You will get the same exhilaration as you did in your youth. We stayed in the Mango Cabin which is luxurious in every way imaginable. The view is breathtaking with Macaws flying around and you... More

This review is long overdue but not because of the quality of our time at Finca Exotica. We traveled to this incredible, singular, and stunning lodge in April with our two boys ages 6 and 9. Instantaneously it became home, even though it is worlds apart from New York City where we live. Words really defy our experience. The grounds... More

There are not enough superlatives for Finca Exotica. All aspects of our stay there were exceptional. The surroundings are beautiful, the architecture is simple and elegant, and above all is the helpful and friendly staff. They say Costa Ricans are among the happiest people on Earth. I think this may be doubly true of the staff at Finca Exotica. A... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review! You are right, very little people know what a good surf there can be right in front of Finca Exotica!

DAD: This past April my family traveled to Fina Exotica and had the best time. The place was simply wonderful. Coco the chef served great meals and Marcus and Gabrielle made us feel at home. It is the jungle, so you must have a sense of adventure, but as my 10 year old said, "This place is in the jungle,... More

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

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.
