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... More

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! Room... More

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... More

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... More

We were two sisters travelling with an 11 years old boy. We found Finca Maresia to be the perfect place to explore Drake Bay surrounding. Upon arrival, the owner will pick you up at the beach (wet landing). Other times, it takes approx. 30 min to walk to the village but the owner often provides rides with his van. We... More

Finca Maresia is amazing place to stay: beautiful, cosy, clean! Has beautiful garden and the bungalows have terraces with hammocks where you can chill in the afternoons. Juan (the owner) made everybody feel at home and took such a great care of the guests. He will help you to organise any tour you are interested in. Also the dinners were... More

The Finca Maresia is an amazing place and the perfect base for individually organized hikes to Corcovado, diving/snorkeling and ATV trips. We stayed for 3 nights and when we left we felt as if we had known Juan for years. The way he takes care of you is amazing: he wants to make your stay just perfect. The bungalows (superior... More

We made a reservation for 2 nights but ended up staying four nights in this Finca Maresia. Juan (the owner) and his staff are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the dinners with the other guests every night and had great tours arranged by Juan. The bird watching around Finca Maresia, the horse riding tour, the trip to the national... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. We had a beautiful villa with an open bathroom and a balcony with hammocks. In this area we could see many diffent birds like toucans and macaws, especially in the evening. At dusk and dawn you can hear the ear battering sound of the houwler monkeys. Every evening we had a nice... More

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
