I spent 9 glorious nights at Finca Exotica and didn't want to leave. This place is spectacular and is so far superior to any other spot in the area and I'm fairly sure all of the country. From the moment you arrive, you'll be in heaven. The people take such good care of you - Laura, Gabriela, Marcos, Alonso, Chef,...

I enjoyed staying at Finca Exotica very much. We arrived late, but the staff (Alfonso?) was a big help in welcoming us, showing us the way to our Tiki Tent in the dark and carrying our luggage. The premises are very nice and so was our tent. The shower was very close and so was the restaurant up on the...

This place is amazing. I went with a couple of friends to get in touch with nature and detox from the day to day strugles. This place exceeded all expectations, from the delicious and healthy food to the rooms and most importantly the energy of the staff was amazing. 100% recommended.

We slept in the tents and it was an amazing experience, with outside shower in the middle of the jungle. The dinner was delicious and also the breakfast. There are many hammocks in the restaurant to just relax and enjoy the sights. No mobile coverage, no wifi, just my friends and I enjoying the landscape and all the silence but...

Amazing experience. They prepared wonderful vegetarian meals just for the two of us. Hiked 4-8 hours per day on local trails. One day we hired a local guide recommended from the hotel to visit the national park. He was able to show us everything. From anteater to tapir we got it all. The beach is quiet and clean with cozy...

Thank you, yes the waves do appear daunting but a couple hours before and after low tide it's very refreshing to splash around in there!

Beautiful piece of paradise! We loved both the rooms we stayed in and can't wait to go back! Had a 4.5 yr old and 10 m old with us at the time (Spring 15), and they loved it too! Though if we go back, it may be a mommy and daddy trip :-)

very friendly staff, a convincing and charming very helpful owner couple, totally relaxed family atmosphere, the whole finca laid out beautifully within a nature reserve, at the pacific - and their aim "leaving the smallest possible footprint" is met, no AC (!), no hairdryer, only self generated electricity, no spotlights during the night (bring your headlamps!), mostly local produce lovingly...

We paid 400 per night. Bed was too hard but otherwise enjoyed the stay. I felt that we did not receive enough for the price because while the price included meals we had to pay extra for alcohol drinks and the morning yoga. Seems this should all be included for 400 USD per night. The location is fantastic. Relatively rugged...

Thank you Karen. Finca Exotica prides itself on all of the unique facilities, location and character we offer guests. The price for the ranchito cabin plus all of the amenities included (3 healthy meals a day, fresh juice, use of all facilities, etc) was agreed upon prior to arrival and there are very few hotels that include alcoholic drinks and...

A beautiful situation surrounded by nature. Opportunities to explore the beach,the forest and enjoy kayaking,horse riding and treks. Or maybe just sit with a good book and the sounds of the forest whilst chatting to the chef about the local food.

From the wonderful attentive staff to the incredible owners the place is amazing. This is simply described as a Chic Gilligans Island paradise.

Our facilities surround our central meeting place, Casa Grande, which hosts the organic food restaurant with a communal dining table and stretches out to an amphitheater suited for presentations and lectures by day and dance parties by night. Between them is the bar and together they all encompass the terrace where you can lounge under the open sky or swing in a hamock in the shades of almond trees, while Scarlett Macaws are feeding on them. Tents, cabins, rentals and other facilities stem out from this centerpiece to provide easy access near the beach, an isolated meditation ambiance and quaint trails that lead you through the labyrinth of exotic plant life. ... more   less

“The Rancho - if you go the distance take the best. It is breeze even without any fans and the outside shower is a wonderful refreshment. It feels very private. The view from the deck is amazing. We brought an extra hammock and spent hours just reading and listening to the jungle and the waves. ”
