Finca Exotica was exactly the type of lodging we were looking for. It was in a beautiful location, we went on a great hike into the Corcovado National Park while there, the food was delicious and fresh and our cabin (we stayed in the Ylang Ylang) was great. The owners and staff were also very attentive and friendly. I would...

We loved our stay at Finca Exotica in the last week of April. We stayed in Casa Raiz and Rancho, both very different with stunning views. The staff are very friendly, the food is delicious, there are drinks and fruit throughout the day. Beautiful yoga deck. The beach is very natural and almost deserted. The sea is wild so you...

I went to finca exotica ecolodge with my family, and our experience was incredible. Cabins are great, the staff is so kind and the landscape is extraordinary. Additionally, they offer several activities for you to enjoy while staying there. I would definetely recommend it.

Sweet staff! We stayed for 8 nights and we wish we could stay at least 1 more month. Organic food. Totally isolated and close to nature! It's a cure for broken hearts or stressful minds. Luxury in the natural way and we really miss waiking up early by the sound of monkies, doing yoga and taking cold showers outside while...

Finca Exotica exceeded all of my ideas and senses of paradise. Truly warm and gracious hosts, Gabby and Markus, have created a dream escape from the world where you can commune with nature, animals, other humans. Artists and Designers, Gabby and Markus, have made a beautiful family eco resort with a staff that is their chosen family (it's apparent the...

Finca Exotica is unlike anywhere we have stayed before--it is truly off the grid, which is exactly what we were looking for. The property is stunning, not in the usual sense of the word, the design is impeccable but is not fancy. You are literally in the jungle, which ends at the ocean, so you've got the best of both...

My mother and I spent 5 amazing nights here in a cabin (Chi) at the start of our trip in Costa Rica and we really did not want to leave as it surpassed our expectations! We were blown away by the beautiful design of Finca Exotica as you can tell that the owners have put a lot of effort into...

This place is not for everyone. It's off the grid, there are no fans , only cold water showers(you wont mind because you're in the tropics)The accommodations range from tents on platforms to a guest house. Great hiking near by and the beach is across the street. The main lodge/dinning area is very nice, food is great and the owners...

It's a long drive to Finca Exotica but worth it. We have seen other ecolodges. Like Goldilocks...some too fancy; some too close to civilization...Finca Exotica is just right. Located on one of the most desolate and beautiful beaches and right near the national park boundary, this is a great place to relax, unwind, eat healthy and take care of your...

Thank you Steven! yes the trip can seem daunting but once you have arrived and wander along the beach practically alone watching the sunset you realize why you came ;) Can't wait to visit your neck of the woods soon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finca Exotica eco lodge is a Wildlife Refuge property in this pristine area of Costa Rica, and the closest place to Corcovado National Park accessible by car.Our beach lodge is equipped to meet all of your needs – be it a romantic couple’s escape, a group retreat, a professional conference or a family vacation. 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
