Hi Roger, Nature has all of the answers, what better way to unwind than to come and spend some time in our tropical paradise! Thank you very much for your review, and sharing your experience with us. We hope to see you again in the not so far future back on Playa Carate.... Pura vida!

This hotel is a very nice place with a very good chef in the kitchen. It's located next to Corcovado NP and the hotel has a friendly and good guide who can take you in to the NP. This is all not very cheap tho :-(

We spent 4 nights in Finca Exotica and enjoyed every second. Gaby and Marcus are gracious hosts and the food was great. But what it is about is being submerged in nature. The accommodation is simple but beautiful. No creature comforts like airco, warm water or walls (yes, it is basically a roof and a bed) but the views and...

We had the honeymoon package (learned "luna de meal in spanish:-)) so of course it was great. We didn't know we'd be eating in groups with the other guests, but it was nice to meet people from other countries. The kayak tour and the corcavado national park were great, and the staff were great even when a lot of other...

This is amazing place to stay! Cool bungalows, amazing open air restaurant, lots of wildlife on the trails, superb fresh food from the gardens.. Highly recommended! We went with our two small kids! We didn't even go in to Corcovado because there were so many animals to see on La Finca property itself!

Finca exotica was the most amazing place. The staff, food and accomodation was awesome! A beautful beach with many hammocks for relaxing under the almond trees. If you want to be in a beautiful remote part of the world, it's a must!

This is a great spot to stop for a couple of nights. It's the closest place to the entrance to the park so you can hire a guide (Yeri is excellent) and walk straight in. The rooms are really fun, we stayed in an open aired treehouse at the top of the hill. The walk to the top is well...

Great balance between necessary comfort and jungle contact. We truly experienced being surrounded by pristine nature in a private and comfortable setting. Food is outstanding, fresh and healthy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finca Exotica eco lodge is a Wildlife Refuge property in this pristine area of Costa Rica, and the closest place to Corcovado National Park accessible by car.Our beach lodge is equipped to meet all of your needs – be it a romantic couple’s escape, a group retreat, a professional conference or a family vacation. 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
