We came as a World Challenge group from England, and helped out at the Eco lodge for a week to aid the locals and to engage in turtle conservation. We weren't expecting much when we arrived, but when we got there it was like paradise. We were met by London who showed us up to where we would be staying... More

We stayed at Finca Exotica for four nights in a partly open bungalow in the beautiful garden. Going to bed and waking up to the sounds of nature was truly amazing. We saw lots of scarlet macows flying close to the Finca (you can look for them from the yoga platform or from sunset view on the hiking trail) .... More

Staying at Finca Exotica had been such a wonderful experience ! We stayed in the Tiki Tent, you really feel like you're part of the jungle. It was even pouring with rain, which only made it more amazing: the tents are perfectly water proof and very comfortable (only: there's no light, so bring your own). The next day we went... More

You will not be disappointed with Finca Exotica (unless you would rather stay in a resort with pools and air conditioning). The property is perfectly situated across the road from the most pristine beach and is full of lovely looking and smelling plants. They upgraded us to a cabin, Ranchito, because there was extra room. The cabin was beautiful and... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Finca Exotica in July 2016. The trip there is a trip in itself. While there are options for flying and taking a taxi to the lodge, we rented a 4X4 and drove there. The drive from end of the hardtop at Puerto Jimenez to the lodge is only about 42 kilometers, but it took... More

This is a wonderful place to stay if you're looking to get off the grid and experience the diversity of the Osa Peninsula! Environmentally friendly and perfect for relaxing or adventuring. There is easy access to the beach or trails and many options for tours. Food was delicious and healthy with plenty of fresh fruits and juices available!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

Our facilities surround our central meeting place, Casa Grande, which hosts the organic food restaurant with a communal dining table and stretches out to an amphitheater suited for presentations and lectures by day and dance parties by night. Between them is the bar and together they all encompass the terrace where you can lounge under the open sky or swing in a hamock in the shades of almond trees, while Scarlett Macaws are feeding on them. Tents, cabins, rentals and other facilities stem out from this centerpiece to provide easy access near the beach, an isolated meditation ambiance and quaint trails that lead you through the labyrinth of exotic plant life. ... more   less

“What Finca calls "tents" are actually quite nice, 8 foot tall in the middle, and permanent structures made of wood, etc. The main advantage to having a cabin is more privacy, more space if you have a lot of luggage, and your own hammock.”
