A truly amazing place where you will be surrounded by the sound of the ocean and the lull of the breezes as well as an incredible array of bird life! You will find yourself in the middle of a "tiki village" and the units are incredibly private with lovely outdoor showers and ours even had a small dipping pond. The... More

We slept in a tent for two nights and it was definitely too short! We loved everything about the place! The tent is cosy, the shower outside is cold but perfect (in 80 degrees).The toilets are clean. The staff is really friendly. Monica is the perfect host and she makes you feel at home from the second you arrive. Diner... More

Finca Exotica and its location are truly from another world. As the first destination of a Costa Rica trip that went to Manuel Antonio, Arenal and Tortuguero, this location was without the shadow of a doubt the most incredible one and worth staying a couple of days longer. We stayed one day, then spend two days in the national park... More

Well, we just came back from our second visit to Finca Exotica. And what we just experienced confirm what we thought : Finca Exotica is an amazing place. Not just because of the views from the cabins (but you should see the sun rising on the ocean there.. oh wow.) or because of the delicious food (thanks Tomas and Josue!)... More

Stayed three nights and loved every minute. Lovely beach, plenty of shade, not overrun by people, we even saw baby sea turtles hatching on the beach one evening. We also did the rainforest hike in Corcovado with a guide (which Finca arranged) and saw tons of wildlife, including three species of monkeys, toucans, macawas, a sloth, an anteater, just to...

Wonderful ecolodge with very friendly and helpful staff, Gabriella, Martin, Charlotte and Tomas in particular. Things we loved: the lodges were wonderful, the outdoor shower, the lack of wifi and phone reception allowing you to really switch off, the proximity to the beach, the guests were all amazing people with interesting conversation, the body boards for use on the beach,...

Just an all around great destination. The rainforest hike is excellent and not too expensive. Around 65 bucks. Stayed in a tent which was great and very relaxing. 100 yards away from your front door/flap, you can lay in a hammock on the beach and watch the pelicans glide across the waves. Food was awesome and hit the spot after... More

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The area is beautiful and hotel itself is an architectural masterpiece. The food was also amazing. On top of everything it is a great place to meet other interesting travelers.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Finca Exotica. We opted to do little while there - swim at low tide and hang in the dreamy hammocks on the beach while watching scarlet macaws feed in the almond trees above us, do a few short hikes - and had a completely wonderful time. The dining hall is absolutely fantastic - it sits... More
