Finca Maresia is the place where to stay if you are visiting Drake Bay. It is not right in the centre of the village but that is not a big deal as the village is nothing special. Juan, one of the owners, will drive you wherever you need to go for your activities. Juan has been an incredible host, caring... More

This place is cool - great architecture and showers - Juan - from Valencia - is the perfect host - he organises trips at amazing prices with really characterful locals - he really cares - the food is great - you eat around a single massive table - its 10 minutes out of town - away from the beach -...

Miguel and his team provided an excellent 3 night stay. It's remote, beautiful individual guest houses, relaxing stay with excellent access to the national park. Can't believe people complain about the rain as that's part of the course in this area. Loved the dusty van that just adds more to a unique adventure. Highly recommend, perhaps not for Americans who... More

All the good reviews don't lie! Such a good place to stay to explore drake bay and corcovado! Fully recommend and would go back if I ever visit CR again! Rooms were very nicely set up and decorated and also provided you with your own little private view of nature. I regularly met toucans and macaws most days outside my... More

I stayed here with my sister for 4 nights in May 2016. Miguel greeted us at the beach as we arrived via boat. Our first impressions of Finca Maresia were very good - it is so beautiful and secluded. The whole establishment consists of little private cabins; the hammocks on the deck are the best part! The dinners that you... More

I visited Drake Bay in May of 2016 and cannot say enough great things about Finca Maresia, its owners, and staff. The cabins are well designed and very private feeling with nice decks that have hammocks and overlook the jungle.The main lodge area is on a hill and catches the breeze to help cool you off. As a female solo... More

Spent four nights here in March. Glad we did. We had a car which made it easier, but even without, getting into Drake Bay isn't that difficult. The rooms are simple, but perfectly adequate. They have a fan, but no air con, which would have been nice given the heat/humidity. We drove here without any problem - the gravel part... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last June and it was the first place we visited in Costa Rica.. and it was the best place that we stayed. Finca Maresia is a stunning place in the middle of the jungle. We saw howler monkeys, parrots and toucans from the porch. We ate here every night as the food is second... More

We were in November 2015 in Costa Rica and stayed some nights at Finca Maresia. It was absolutely fantastic! After arriving by boat, Juan (the owner of Finca Maresia) picked us up and brought us to our beautiful bungalow. Juan is just an incredibly good and nice host. It feels like he is 24 hours a day there for the... More

This place appears to attract favourable reviews and I'm not going to disagree. Beautiful location (worth a trip over to Rincon if you're a sunset fan). Small, friendly, great service. Communal multinational dining added to the experience. The Corcovado trip was the single most creature-full of our stay in CR
