I had the opportunity to visit this amazing place just a couple of months ago. It was just great to see nature everywhere and even as a tico visitor and knowing that we are used to nature, Finca Amanecer is a beautiful and cheap place to go and stay with friends, family or just by yourself. Elena, the owner, really... More

It's an interesting and unforgettable experience to visit this place. The place is surrounded by Nature with lots of birds including peace and quiet at night in a typical Tico town or cool off in Rio Naranjo, or relax and refresh in the on site creek. The owner is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and is very helpful with... More

Elena and her home are one of a kind. If you are stuck in your box...and like it there...stay there. If you are ready to expand, breathe, unlock the treasures within and experience your life on levels only imagined...come, stay. Play, heal..enjoy. This is true Tico style...which, in my profound experience means heart, soul, sharing and caring...in order to make... More

This was my second stay at the Finca so I knew exactly what to expect. I went with the goal of losing weight and getting off some of my prescription medications. It was the worst winter Michigan ever had so I was glad every day that I was away from home. I knew there would be controlled portions and a... More

First, this BnB is not in Quepos. Second, it is not a professional hostel. Third, the positive reviews should be about the past. Now it is an outdated simple and soiled private home. Breakfast is scant. Dinner is not worth to pay for. Sleeping in a Tico home, with the ants and bugs everywhere, was a unforgettable experience. If you're... More

Elas, I stayed there some nights, with the bugs, ants, termites and molds in and around my bed, my room, the shared bathrooms, and in the lounge and eatery. Why? Because I was so trusting to pay in advance for full board, and was waiting for money transfer. I trusted the positive reviews (of the owner's friends?) and the website's... More

A true oasis in Tico bliss. I was greeted by fresh cinnamon iced tea (grown on the farm) and an incredibly warm welcome from Elena. This lush, flowering, tranquil place is her pride and joy and it shows. The rooms are a great value. Very clean, comfortable and cheery and the food is healthy & delicious, I had banana bread...

I stayed here ages ago (2005-ish?) but I absolutely adored this place. So happy to see that Elena is still hosting guests. I remember the rain putting a damper on things but Elena was such a great host. She prepared meals for us and took us to Londres for an amazing dinner of steamed Tilapia. If I remember correctly she... More

Despite the rating of the writer below, who is certainly entitled to his opinion, I found this "finca" relaxing, full of exciting plant- and wildlife, beautiful as a tropical rainforest retreat, healthy in the diet offered and interesting in the variety and backgrounds of other visitors that were there when I was. It is rustic and not at all like... More
