Our stay at the Finca Maresia was the highlight of our 4 weeks in Costa Rica. Arriving by boat added an extra dimension to the experience (pack light) which continued to be great for our 4 days there. Please read the other reviews - they are all good and exactly as we found it. Juan worked really hard and made...

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...

We just returned from 2 weeks in Costa Rica, 1 week of which was spent on the Osa. We only stayed at the Finca Maresia for 2 nights, but I wish I had planned on longer. The Finca was lovely. The cabin design and the open air bathroom are truly unique and very comfortable. The meals are also very good...

We spent about a week in Finca Maresia. Our host was Juan. He was wonderful. He did all he possibly could to make our stay the best. He did the phone calls, set up the tours, and helped out with transportation. It was great to wake up in the morning to the sounds of nature and to eat breakfast! Dinners...

We had a lovely 4 night stay here in a room with shared bathroom. Book early--we couldn't get into the bungalows and we couldn't stay as long as we wanted. But this room was quite fine. Finca Maresia is very simple and at the same time very elegant. It's a beautiful site and deserves at least one unplanned day to...
