This was our second stay at Finca Exotica, and it was almost as magical as the first. We stayed for a week both times, and wished it could have been longer. The cabins are open to the jungle on three sides, so you feel like you're right in the midst of the birds and animals, yet they're perfectly comfortable and...

It was so great to see you again, John! We try our very best to provide our guests with rustic comfort while still feeling at one with nature-a tough balance we believe we are improving on year after year, and are thrilled you look forward to coming back once again on your next visit.

Wonderful accommodation at the Pacific close to Corcovado National Park. Friendly and supportive staff. Gabriela and Markus are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed every hour. We stayed at the Rancho hut which was a kind of luxury penthouse at the top of the lodge with great views to the ocean and the jungle. Birds, monkeys and many other animals are close....

I literally stumbled upon the Finca Exotica while looking for a place to stay in Carate! So much thought has gone into the lodge that it creeps up on you and hits you suddenly and squarely between the eyebrows and then subtly and gently grows into you. The peace, leisure and relaxation one gains is almost palpable. Every open air...

Let's talk about Finca Exotica! The Eco Lodge is close to the beach and built in the jungle, thus you can collect a lot of natural experiences. Why travel to a zoo? Here you only need to look up to see toucans, Macaw parrots or rare butterflies. I was really lucky because I was able to observe a tapir! Although...

Came here in early January for a change of pace after puerto viejo. Whilst a bit remote and not really close to any main town the experience of the ecolodge was fantastic. Don't expect 5 star luxury but if you want to be immersed in the Costa Rican jungle, wake up to birds and animals around your "glamping" style accommodation...

This is hands down the most beautiful place I have stayed at in my life! Not only is the location gorgeous, every little detail has been planned with precision and a lot of love.

We spent wonderful days here. One couldn't get any closer to living in the jungle and amongst all amazing wildlife. Very friendly staff, great hikes and activities available. If the heat just makes you want to relax, there are a lot of great hangouts and lookout places on the large property. Eating dinner together with the other guests also added...

Back from nearly a month of traveling in Costa Rica I bare with me one memory above all the others; our stay at Finca Exotice Ecolodge. With a great sense for natural beauty, the luxury of less rather than more, ecological awareness as a way of life rather than obligation, and with a closeness to nature in a way that...

Finca Exotica gets 100 stars from me. I arrived stressed from life in the city and emerged more relaxed than I've felt in 20 years.

Whether it's a guided hike through...

I loved everything about Finca Exotica. The location is incredible, one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen in my life. You are surrounded by monkeys, beautiful birds including toucans and macaws and we even witnessed baby turtles embarking on their first journey across the black sand. We stayed in one of the tents and were pleasantly surprised by how...

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
