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

The vibe here is so special, I can't describe it any other way. Our room was wonderfull, we could see the apes when under the shower. But what made it... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for 4 nights at Finca Maseria, and our only regret was that we couldn't stay for longer. Miguel, the owner, is an absolute gem: extremely friendly, warm and knowledgeable. The bungalows are amazing, you get a beautiful and spacious room, with your own hammock, and a shower that feels like it's in the middle of... More
