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

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
