If you want an authentic, eco reserve experience, Finca is the place. If you want to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the jungle, Finca is for you! In addition to the sounds, your other senses will be working: the fragrances of the gardens, the views of the ocean, the taste of Chief Coco's delicious fresh fusion... More

Finca is very remote and for this reason they effortlessly offer a genuine jungle "immersion" experience. The bamboo cabins & other structures on the property are well built and nicely decorated and arranged. Access to Corcovado is a short walk away. We booked on Booking.com and found out once we arrived that this was a "bed & breakfast" rate which... More

We drove 6 hours through the jungle to the middle of nowhere [30+ km of dirt roads and fording small rivers] and arrived at 8pm to find we had no room. The two owners/bosses claimed they never received our reservation from Expedia, despite the fact we had a confirmation email from Expedia. We suggested we call Expedia to sort it... More

We are very sad to hear of your misfortune of booking through Expedia. Unfortunately, we never confirmed your reservation as we were completely full for your chosen dates. I am very sorry that Expedia did not advise you of this situation. If you book through Expedia again, you will notice that they advise you that your reservation is not confirmed... More

Our 3 night stay at Finca Exotica is one we will never forget. This was truly the best remote jungle experience we have ever had. The setting is perfect, cabinas and tiki tents nestled in the jungle growth provide exceptional comfort and privacy. The outdoor bathrooms and showers are something you will never forget, definitely not outhouses! The food is... More

We traveled to the Osa and stayed at Finca as part of a yoga retreat and eco-tourism experience. Finca is nestled in the jungle, right on the pacific ocean, a 1-1.5 hour very bumpy ride from Puerto Jimenez. We were assigned a cabina that was perched high up on a steep hill above the main lodge but well worth the... More

Finca Exotica is truly an adventure in the jungle of Costa Rica. We loved everything about Finca Exotica- from the staff, the exquisite food, the beautiful grounds that they have created and the wonderful environment of the area.

Truly splendid--scenery, staff, accomodations! We were treated like visiting royalty by the energetic, fun, and thoughtful staff. Yet we also were treated like family. We had a great time, saw wonderful things--beach, animals, birds, plants and flowers. The staff was always willing to stop their work and answer questions. They were concerned about all aspects of our visit, making arrangements... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my two night stay at La Finca Exotica.

We arrived by car service arranged through La Finca – all the email communication was prompt and courteous – the driver... More

Finca is perfect. Authentic, low impact, laid back yet totally accommodating, beautiful. The building and grounds blend effortlessly with the environment, you don't feel like an intruder in a stunning natural space. Plenty of hiking options and an amazing, empty beach. Surf can be strong at high tide, but the lodge very appropriately suggests swimming around the low tide. Tide... More
