Upon first arrival we were just blown away by the grounds and maintenance of the lodge. Granted we had quite an exciting and eventful ride on the colectivo from Puerto Jimenez, we were not prepared for what this place had in store for us. The facilities were magnificent - namely Casa Grande, what a work of art. Beautiful wood detailing,... More

This experience was simply magical for my two children and I. The minute we arrived, our lives were transformed. The no electronics policy was the beginig of a truly interactive lifestyle, jajaja. There was simply so much to experience in these surroundings, that my kids quickly forgot computer games and I forgot about work. It was the perfect excuse to... More

Thanks for your review, Nena! Your words are very inspiring, almost as great as your beautiful singing voice which we felt privileged to hear the night you came to Casa Grande with your guitar for a mini concert!

My wife and I travel a lot, and this was absolutely the best experience we've ever had. We spent 6 nights in one of the small cabinas and totally loved it. Be prepared--this experience is not for everybody. The cabins basically have no walls (just mosquito netting over the bed), and the birds and howler monkeys will wake you at... More

Awesome! In the middle of the jungle and 2 min far from a beautiful beach! The architecture, rooms etc... are fantastic and in harmony with the nature.

Staying here was the BEST way to end our trip in Costa Rica. The Osa Peninsula lived up to the hype - it's absolutely beautiful, and still largely untouched.

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
