We had a 3 week vacation to Costa Rica. After a 45 min. boat ride we arived at Drake Bay. A short drive to Finca Maresia and it looked great. Rooms are big, clean and beautiful. Located in the middle of the jungle and its like your own little oase. We planned to stay for 4 days but it was... More

We have stayed here for 5 days and unfortunately we had to left. Finca Maresia really was the most beautiful and special place we have been on our holiday. You feel really special because it's located in the jungle on a beautiful property with a lovely view, and the people who work there are so friendly, the owner the best... More

We spent two nights in Finca Maresia and I have to say that you dont need to go far away from this place to see all the animals of the Corcovado. Toucans, monkeys, snails, aras : we all see them from the restaurant large terrasse which is a very nice place to stay for sunsets. The lodge includes relatively nice... More

We stayed for 3 nights. The accommodations are rustic, but comfortable, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The location is set up in the hills, but still close to the bay and the staff will shuttle you to and from "downtown" several times a day.There aren't a ton of restaurants so the dinner at Finca Maresia is a good...

My husband and I went to Costa Rica for the wildlife and outdoor experience. We ended our trip in Drake Bay at Finca Maresia. This was a perfect choice! The bungalows are reasonably priced and gorgeous. The dinning area is nestled in the canopy where you can bird watch and eat tapas. The owner is fluent in Spanish and English... More

My wife, two daughters, and I stayed here at the end of July 2014 as we wrapped up several weeks of traveling in Costa Rica. This was by far my favorite place in the entire country! The proprietor Juan (Juan is a Spaniard) really goes out of his way to make sure you feel at home and become part of... More

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
