Nothing of our trip in Costa Rica was really plannend, except one thing; our trip to Finca Maresia. We were from the first contact moment with Juan (one of the owners) via e-mail impressed. Juan provided a lot of information about getting to Drake Bay, things to do, things to think of, how to get to Finca Maresia from the boat, etc. Everything was totally clear for us, before we even arrived. As soon as Juan picked us up from the boat in Drake Bay, we felt very welcome. During the 10 minute drive to Finca Maresia Juan explained some basic things about the area. When we arrived Juan had a nice surprise for us, he upgraded our standard to a superior room because of the green season. After checking in, we sat down and Juan started telling about all the different available tours you can do and how the restaurant and common area works.
We felt very welcome! Juan is great in giving advice and arranging tours, helping you to have the right equipment for the tours (such as boots). In total we've done three tours; snorkeling, horse backriding and a day at Corcovado. All were fantastic with great guides and a lot of wild life!
The location is beautiful and is surrounded with wild life, such as frogs, toucans, parrots, etc. We liked the common area and dining together with quests a lot. Juan cooks everyday a very tasty meal and takes diet preferences (fish, meat or vegatarian) into account. Besides the great food, it is really interesting and fun to have dinner with people from all over the world and to share your travel and tour experiences. We've met some really nice people!
The cabins are really nice decorated. We loved the outside in shower, hammock and surrounded jungle sounds.
We can't wait to go back!
