Most excellent embedded within beautiful tropical nature the Finca Exotica team created a fantastic place to relax and enjoy life. Every day was a great enjoyment.

We stayed at La Tarde prior to hiking into Corcovado to the Sirena ranger station. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was so warm, friendly, helpful and hospitable. It is rustic, no doubt, but we loved it. If you like birds, the location is ideal. From the great house area up the hill you will see flocks of scarlet... More

The property is exactly what we wanted, it was lush and tropical, surrounded by monkeys, far away from dense population, and quite and relaxing.

Is is a beautiful, secluded and unique place, on Carate beach near the borders of Corcovado National Park, great for nature lovers, romantic get away ... it is an authentic experience, to get in touch with nature and disconnect in a good way from the rest of the world.

Just returning from a two night stay at Finca Exotica and can't say enough good things about this place and the people that run it. The cabins are simple but very comfortable and unique, the grounds are extraordinarily beautiful, and they go a great job at bringing guests together to share stories over dinner.

I am a Costa Rican biologist with experience staying around Corcovado National Park. This was my first time on the Carate beach side of the park. The place is beautiful for nature lovers, with sandy beaches right next to tropical rain forest.
