The breakfast has a great selection of food and the evening meals were fantastic, Juan even catered for the fussy vegetarian and did a fantastic job. While there we did one of the Sirena Ranger Station...

This is THE place to be in Costa Rica! Can't think of a more beautiful location in the midst of nature. We had one of the budget rooms, it was spotlessly clean, very elegant and done from great materials. The whole place is perfectly thought through with many years of travel experience having been incorporated. Food is very tasty and...

We went to this place because we read so much good things about it. We are really happy about the four days we spent there. Breakfast is very good the optional supper is fabulous and the fun part about the food is that everyone in the hotel sits at the same long table and can exchange information about their trip....

The Finca is next to the primary forest and placed in totally pure nature. Juan is a very helpful and lovely person and made us feel like at home. All guests are eating the delicious meals from Juan on one big table, which gives you the great possibility to meet interesting people and to share travel-information. The food was delicious...

We stayed at the Finca Maresia.for five nights. It was the highlight of our visit to Costa Rica. We loved our cabin nestled amidst the jungle. The hammocks outside our room were great for reading after a busy day. The four course evening meals prepared by Juan were delicious. Juan was great as he accommodated my dislike of fish. I...
