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!

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!!
