We absolutely loved Finca Maresia. I couldn't think of a better way to spend our time in Drake Bay. The whole experience was great. Miguel was very helpful throughout the planning process and answered my many questions. We arrived by boat from Sierpe and were met on the beach by Miguel, who took us up to Finca Maresia in his...

We had a fantastic stay at Finca Maresia, Juan was great at organising everything before we arrived, he organised for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and when we arrived he talked us through the activities we could do during our stay. Juan was extremely informative, he knew all of the best things to do in the...

An amazing cabin lodge in the jungle outside the little beach town. Juan, one of the live-on-site owners, took care of all our needs and cooked us a few excellent dinners. We stayed there for three nights, met some great people in the common area during our dinner together, felt part of nature with birds and animals all around us....

THE place to stay while in Drake Bay. It's popular so book ahead. The terrace is a nice place to chill and drink a beer, while using the telescope to look at birds/animals. The garden is wonderful with all kinds of flora and fauna. The bunkers are nice and have a hammock on the terrace (we had a 'standard room')....

My girlfriend and I stayed here for the past 4 nights and had a truly great time! Many credits for this perfect experience go to Juan, the owner of the place. He's a super friendly guy and a pleasant conversationist. But he also takes great effort in making your stay as pleasant as possible: He picks you up / drops...

We stayed in Finca Maresia 5 nights with my family (3 kids: 13, 12, 9, all in one of the big rooms). We all loved this so special place! Everything is superb: the location, the rooms, the shower, the food, the dining-lounge area, the activities to do, the jungle noises during night, the company during dinners. The whole area of...

We highly recommend this place. Juan (one of the owners) sent us a lot of useful information to get there. He came to pick us up when we arrived by boat. The place is 2km far from the center but it's totally OK, because the town has nothing to do. The beauty of the area resides in the jungle and...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here mid July and it was the most incredible experience. We stayed in the superior room which was amazing, open bathroom/shower so you could look over at the rainforest and two hammocks on the balcony- every evening we would sit and watch the thunder storms and torrential rain, nothing like I have experienced before!

On arriving at Finca Maresia I felt like I had arrived in paradise. It really does have stunning views, cosy rooms and the food is delicious. However my stay back in January 2016 was marred by the fact that I had money stolen from me twice. On my first day I left my money in my room and went for...

Dear Jenna, Since you sent me the mail informing me about this situation in january, the worker who might have access to my safe is not working here any more. Inmediately we bought safes for the basic rooms, so, since some months ago, have safe in all the rooms and bungalows, to be sure not to happen anything similar any...
