Finca Exotica is a remote little paradise (difficult to reach but definitely worth it) with a touch of jungle adventure, super dedicated personal attention and friendly atmosphere. The place is run by a lovely couple and their extremely nice staff. Finca Exotica makes you feel like you are in a big family environment, and you will meet all kinds of... More

Great place to get away from it all - literally. Unspoiled beaches, well designed rainforest lodging, interesting people (staff as well as guests), healthy food. Best thing is to be never ever really inside since there are no real walls. Close to nature without roughing it.

This is an absolutely amazing place in the middle of nowhere. It offers a unique experience that can really change your perception of nature, the jungle and even your own life. The people are really nice. It looks awesome. The accommodation was wonderful. Now, the question is: can you put a price on such an experience? If someone provides you... More

Happy New Year! Thank you very much for the review, it is really important to us that we receive feedback from our guests. Carate is definitely a more expensive destination in comparison with some other parts of the country, and so that is reflected in our prices. We are remote and so we try to grow what produce we can... More

Finca Exotica is one of my favorite places that I have ever stayed in the world! You can spoil yourself with luxury and comfort in their cozy tents and delicious food and juices at the same time as you are "roughing it" in the middle of the most beautiful rainforest. You can safely observe wildlife and beautiful landscapes just from... More

On our 3-week-roundtrip through Costa Rica we (couple) stayed for 4 nights. Finca Exotica had been the biggest disappointment since they invented traveling for the following reasons: SECURITY (What security?): • Owner Markus recommended to go swimming as www.fincaexotica.com does, but we didn´t saw anyone (not even locals) go swimming: • strong currents • bullsharks – they´ve been spotted at...

Hi there, we are very sorry to hear that we did not live up to your expectations.

My friend and I stayed here two nights while finishing up work on a sea turtle project in Carate. Finca Exotica is a lovely place to stay and the energy from the lodge itself as well as the staff is amazing! We stayed in one of their elevated tents and slept wonderfully in the comfy beds. The hut was adorable... More

Thanks for the great review, Hannah! You girls worked very hard on the local COTORCO sea turtle project, what better way to unwind before leaving Carate, than to come to Finca Exotica- you made full use of the hammocks and deserved it! We love catering for vegetarians and for you was no exception... please come back again when you can.... More

Perfect for nature lovers! It is an "experience".. Perfectly located right where the rain forest meets the ocean, I fell in love with Finca exotica just when I reached. Friendly staff..

My experience at Finca Exotica was nothing short of delicious! The staff, the food, the accomodations and the breath-taking views will leave the ecolover both deeply satisfied and hungry for more. I am already planning my next trip back! thanks Phoebe, Gabriella and Monica for making me feel right at home among the jungle wildlife!

The jungle here is both wild and friendly, teaming with birds, monkeys, insects and amphibians (do try and spot some baby turtles hatching on the beach!), the staff welcoming and always happy to help, the food far above normal Costa Rican standards, and the commitment to an ecological ethos runs very deep. I loved this place. It's not the easiest... More
