My husband and I got married at Finca Exotica on Feb. 14 2011. It was beyond our wildest dreams. Markus, Gabby, and the Finca staff are gracious hosts. Even Polly (a friendly Scarlet Macaw) welcomed us when we arrived and to everyone’s amazement, attended our wedding ceremony. The food is outstanding and the location is spectacular. We stayed 9 nights... More

Your wedding is a day that we will NEVER forget! It was such a perfect celebration, we enjoyed every minute of organizing it. You were absolute delights to have and we are already counting down the days until you return next February! See you soon! More

The children and I spent three days here after volunteering at Piro Research Station, and loved every bit of it. It is a true end-of-the road experience and worth braving the traffic for 9 hrs in a cab all the way from SJO. Marcus is a visionary, Gabi -- a great cook and hostess, and Phoebe is a wildlife expert,... More

And it was absolutely wonderful having you all here too! The kids will be very happy to know that their gardening has paid off as the spinach is beginning to grow beautifully....Popeye would be very impressed! Finca and the turtles await your return! More

My girlfriend and I spent seven nights at Finca Exotica in the beginning of June. We decided to drive from San Jose to the property which took us the better part of eight hours. The drive there had us crossing some streams which might have been higher a little later in the year, but were manageable when we went. I... More

I would attempt to describe my stay here, but words cannot do this. You just have to go and experience it for yourself. Marcus & Gabriella, Phoebe, Martine & Chris (of StepOut Experience.com) and all the Finca staff made our stay pretty much perfect in every way. The food was fresh and amazing, the beach was breathtaking (and the waves... More

We will hold Finca Exotica in our hearts forever. Nestled in a pristine jungle paradise, surrounded by creative, intrepid people, and just a beach hike away from Corcovado National Park, we felt supremely inspired and totally relaxed here. Markus and Gabriella have created a very special place in the world, and our family was so fortunate to experience it for... More

I stayed at Finca Exotica in early March (5 nights), and absolutely loved my stay! What a beautiful natural eco-resort, the cabins were absolutely beautiful and the food and service was incredible. I booked my trip through StepOutExperience, and Martine/Chris were wonderful hosts who organized most of my trip for me and were very helpful in helping me choose what... More

Having been a world traveler, (that now lives in San Jose), I am proud to say that once I discovered Finca Exotica, my husband and I have made it a favorite! Spontaneous and fresh, every day is an adventure, whether it be walking down solitary wild beaches, or trying unique plates with exotic herbs and spices, for someone that eats... More

My husband and I recently returned home from our wonderful vacation in Costa Rica of which one of many highlights was spending 7 nights in the Ylang Ylang cabin at Finca Exotica. Our cabin was very spacious and designed to thoroughly enjoy nature and its surroundings. The main dining/relaxing area called Casa Grande is set up on a hill with... More

We just recently returned from vacationing at Finca Exotica in Carate, Costa Rica. This was one of the best vacations that my husband and I have ever been on. If you go to Finca's web site everything you see is exactly how it looks, so there are no surprises when you get there. We stayed in the Rachito and it... More

The location is perfect, loved the sound of the jungle and ocean, no need to repeat what all the other reviewers have to say about the beauty of Carate/Osa. Finca Exotica is a nice place but is not perfection, imo. The wall-less, open-plan of our cabin was wonderful, but not for everyone, no doubt. We opted in for the three... More
