“Fantastically relaxing”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We stayed five nights and easily could have stayed longer. Hammocks everywhere, which make it difficult to motivate yourself up and out to enjoy the activities and sights of this beautiful area! Ryan an Angela as well as their entire staff are helpful, kind and gracious. They arranged our taxi to/from the ferry as well as our guide for hiking the volcano. The food really is wonderful with many choices. Try the banana cacao smoothie! It is a very relaxed environment and you can mix and mingle with the other guests or find private space quite easily. We took the very short walk to the lake everyday for an afternoon of swimming/reading/beach lounging. The casitas are clean, the beds are comfy, the decor is charming and everyone is happy. No need to wonder...this is the place!!!

Ryan and Angela are the best! They're so nice and easy to talk to. One of the best things about Finca Mystica is the serenity you feel once you get there. I've never been in such a chilled out, relaxed environment. The food is amazing and all organic. Try the iced coffee!!
I would say the only negative part of Mystica is the $30 cab ride on unpaved roads- but I believe they're working on that as we speak... :)

Read lots of good reviews so had high expectations & was not disappointed. Very cute cabins, constructed & decorated with care & attention to detail. Clean & comfortable. Fresh flowers in room was a nice touch. Very comfy hammock chairs in communal area. Food was really good (portions a bit smaller than we wanted but we eat a lot! I was able to get a second bowl of their delicious tortilla soup one night, thanks Angela!). Cookies & brownies were so yum! I wasn't feeling 100% when we stayed here so we didn't manage to do the volcano hike that we had planned to do but this was a beautiful spot to relax & rest. Ryan & Angela are nice people, who have done a great job making Finca Mystica the place it is.

I stayed 3 nights here in one of the cottages but could easily have stayed longer. Very relaxing with beautiful surroundings, it was tempting to just stay in the hammock all day!
Food is good and the staff are great. It's a long journey from the port but they will come and pick you up from the port and its a great way to see the island!

We shared two nice cottages. We only stayed two nights but would have liked to stay longer! Food was great too! Beautiful surroundings and good location for hiking to the waterfall. Both the owners and the girls working in the restaurant were really nice.

Lot´s of value for money! Only negative thing was the long and bumpy road there (took almost 2 hours from the port) - although that may also be an experience!

Finca Mystica is a very special place. I stayed in the dorm room, with some trepidation (first time in 18 years!) but it was a good experience. A beautiful, adobe yurt-shaped room, with lovely details - stained glass effect windows using recycled materials, comfortable beds, beautiful curtains. Everything had the feel of being carefully made or chosen. I would have loved to stay longer to find out more about Angela and Ryan's experiences of creating it, as it had the feel of a long-held dream being realised. There was a nice feeling of interaction with the local community, opportunities to rent bikes or go horseriding nearby. I really enjoyed walking along the nature trail in the nearby forest and being able to watch howler monkeys close up (I even tried filming them and felt like I was making my own David Attenborough episode!). The overall feeling is relaxed and of people pottering, doing their own thing. The food is also great - healthy salads, home-made sugar free chocolate, wonderful shakes and oats/granola available for breakfast.

We stayed for 3 nights in the run up to Easter as 4 girls. We had our own room with 2 double beds and ensuite in a great little cabin overlooking the sea.
Ryan y Angela seem to have got the perfect balance between eco and comfortable - Obviously the rooms aren't with air con, mini bar, tv or power shower - but at no point did we feel like we were having to compromise on enjoyment or quality of facilities.
There are some fantastic little details which show the thought which has gone into the development of Finca Mystica.

It is a bit tricky to get to: 30-40 minutes along a very bumpy dirt road and isn't near to any towns or areas of nightlife but that makes it all the more enjoyable.

It's quite an adventure to get there but once you're at Finca Mystica it doesn't feel like you're stranded without anything to do.

So many activities can be accessed from FM, and Ryan y Angela have such a lot of knowledge. Even in the hectic Easter period where many Nicos are off work they helped us with all we wanted and were very patient with our indecision and last minute organising of activities.

The food is ace and has a wide variety of quality things and isn't expensive. And everyone that works there is so lovely and accommodating.

Thanks Finca Mystica and look forward to visiting again in the future to see how it's all developed.
