We spent christmas in Finca Exotica. We're a family of four with two girls of 7 and 11, and we were looking for that family atmosfere so that the girls would feel it's christmas. Ryan was really helpful as we asked him to be the Santa messenger and he gave the girls ther presents. Ryan and Angie are the perfect host, even though they're running a business, they're doing it so that customers would have the best experience. Ryan proposed some activities apiring us with other clients so tat we would pay less and seeing to that it was appropriate for all of us. The room was amazing ass they built all teh cottages with respect to teh environment, there were crowns around the windows made of wine bottles. It was beautiful. The food was amazing, we drank smoothies everyday from fruits coming from their garden. Ryan showed us around, explaining evey plant and how permaculture works. Of all the places we stayed, Finca Mystica was family's favorite. It is also close to the lake so you can go and bathe if that's the only thing you want to do during the day. That's the place, we're looking forward to go back to one day.…
Marvellous hostel! Beautiful, welcoming and warm, comfortable, delicious, genuinely ethical. I definitely recommend it. > Beautiful atmosphere: tropical garden, full of fruits, nice terrasse to chill and yoga deck, in the middle of the monkey jungle, with sightseeing on the lake and sunset. > Very tasty food, well served, local production. You can take chocolate baking lessons, with raw cocao (yummy!) > Ryan, Angela and their children were so welcoming. The hostel has a genuine vibe, with zero marketing nor green washing. They are involved in the local community and all the staff was so nice. > The dorm was luxurious and clean, with queen size beds, and arty architecture
We stayed for 5 night and to be honest we loved everything about the place. The accommodation, the food (everything is local and most of it is from the farm), the host, the activities and the view.... Thank you for having us and keep up the good vibes!
This place is magical. If you want to be surrounded by flowers, butterflies, howler monkeys, tropical birds and fresh fruits and vegetables then look no further. Jairo is amazing and bent over backwards to not only help but to anticipate our needs. The food was delicious, the rooms were super clean and comfortable. Only suggestion would be to add a few more hammocks and comfortable chairs in the common area. The past 4 nights at Finca Mystica were unforgettable and I will be back.
We stayed for 3 days, a family with 2 kids and wish we had more time.. Setting is amazing,we enjoyed the wildlifearound and most of all the super friendly and great team of the Finca. When you leave such a place you promise yourself to come back to make it easier to leave...Hpoe we will!
