Finca Maresia is a great destination for a single traveler. Ecological ambiance balancing a prosperity with elemental nature - pure living. You have found a tranquil social and soulful place. Specializing in an exchange of story telling while breaking bread with tell tale signs of intrepid travelers, world wide. Also, turning inward, privately placed cottages are spaced in safety, thoughtful... More

Away from the touristy area, Finca Marinesa is a great spot in the surounded by nature. Juan, the owner, is amazing. He tries to learn every guest's name and takes time for every special need. He prepares delicious meals every evening. We all sit at one big table and get to meet the other travellers. Rooms are really clean and... More

The location in the jungle is amazing. You'll get to see brilliant wild life every day but the buildings has been done very sympathetically. The facilities and food are really good. Very good value for money. Attracts really nice customers.

Finca Maresia was like our home away from home for five nights in July 2014. We went out each morning for adventures and came home each evening to dinner with our temporary family there. Breakfast and dinner are served family style on the deck overlooking the jungle. Whoever is there gets to eat together, exchange stories, and talk about ideas... More

Miguel is awesome! If you don't mind a 45 minute walk to Drake Bay (We didn't) then Finca Maresia is your choice. Friendly and helpful staff, gorgious view from the room and so much wildlife to be experienced without ever leaving the property. Quality meals, comfortable and affordable.. What else can I say? We'll be back!!

We stayed in Finca Maresia for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The finca is located 2 kilometers inside the jungle which gives a totally different feeling than staying in Drake itself. The rooms/bungalows were very clean and the sheets were excellent. If you stay in the bungalow you will have a beautiful exterior bathroom with jungle view (don't... More

I'm a bit late in putting in my review but better late than never, right? My husband and I stayed at Finca Maresia in February and had a great experience here. The atmosphere of this place is just amazing! Being surrounded by the jungle, meeting other travellers and exchanging stories, having so many activities to choose from, not having to... More

My wife and I stayed at Finca Maresia for five nights in mid-May. Like many other reviewers have mentioned, this is a great and special place. It is nice to be a few kilometers out of town, with peace and quiet up on a beautiful hill over looking the Jungle and ocean. The grounds used to be used for cattle... More
