If you have the fortune to stay at Finca Maresia, or benefit from a cancellation as in our case (!), you will have some very fond memories to bring back home from Costa Rica. Juan's lodgings will enrich your stay in the Osa Peninsula. Finca Maresia is undoubtedly distinguished from its other competitors by its sheer hospitality, its communal aura... More

In August 2014 me and my friends spent three nights at Finca Maresia and we can assure you, this is by far the best place to stay in Drake (and surroundings); what a beautiful place, what an amazing experience! The location of the lodge, at a hilltop not far from Drake town, is wonderful; the property is right next to... More

This having been our 3rd trip to Costa Rica, Finca Maresia was our very favorite property. The location is absolutely picturesque. Every detail is attended to. Great care has been put into everything! The delicious food is served in an unparalleled setting. All at a price that is affordable. Thank you, so much Juan, for sharing this slice of paradise.

We spent 5 nights at Finca Maresia and it’s a beautiful place. We stayed in the basic accommodations, which were simple and aesthetically pleasing. Juan and Ana are the consummate hosts -- generous, knowledgeable, and helpful in every way. The common area -- a large partially covered deck -- is a lovely place where you can linger, read, watch birds,... More

Finca Maresia is a phenomenal hotel and experience. Juan was the perfect host. The cabins are wonderful and the property they are on is absolutely gorgeous, sitting right next to forrest. You will fall asleep to the sound of the forrest and wake up to it. Drake Bay is a launching point for many tours to Corcovado National Park and... More

Really great place! The cabins are beautiful and clean, the view is amazing, you hear the wildlife every moment of the day and most important; the owner Juan and his staff are wonderful. They help you with everything and do everything they can to make sure you have a great stay in Corcovado. While we were traveling someone we met... More

The quality of our stay was very much a factor of Juan, the host, the organisation, nothing was too much trouble and there seemed nothing that Juan did not know, the beautiful accommodation as well as the opportunities to have endless fun. Communal dining meant that there was the opportunity to exchange stories and highlights of the day. In short,... More

Finca Maresia is a perfect place. The location is beautiful. We experienced great hospitality. The food was nice (Spanish) The cabins are not too big but the bathroom is very nice. Juan offers value for money. The whole family enjoyed it very much.

I would recommend this place to anyone. The view is amazing and the accomodation (we were in the cheap one) is clean and looks beautiful. Juan is the most helpful host I have ever met and takes really good care of his guests. Dinner is together with all other guests, which we found really nice!
