Absolutely incredible trip. My mom and I stayed for 10 days and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the tiki tent for one night, went on the 3-day hike to Corcovado Park (with Erick, who is an incredible guide and person) and then spent the remainder of our time in the Bamboo Cabana. We spent some time on the...

Spent 11 days at finca and almost don't wont to write this review to reassure there will be space when I come back because once you experience this place you will not want to leave. The grounds are beautiful, the food was freshly alive right from the property and the service was top notch. I spent 3 days hiking in...

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,...

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.

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...

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

“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.”
