Me and my girlfriend just visited finca exotica ecolodge and absolutely loved it. Its location, the views, but above all the people made this part of our Costa rica experience absolutely unforgettable. Due to hurrican Otto and the tropical depression that followed, the entire pacific coast of CR suffered heavy and prolonged rain, but this is immediately forgotten when you...

I shed a few tears when I arrived in paradise. And then a few more when I had to say good bye. I chose the Osa Peninsula as a destination in Costa Rica because it looked quite remote and beautiful, off the beaten tourist track. And indeed it was all of those! It was an 8 hour drive from San...

The drive from Puerto Jimenez is bumpy as stated. We had a rental Teri's 4wd. The rivers you cross were not as scary as we imagined but could have been way worse in the rainy season. Gaby, who is one of the nicest people ever, checked us in and showed us around. My husband and I have been to cr...

Our experience in Finca exotica was really good, the place is very nice, it is in the middle of the nature and all the services are very good. I think is an interesting place if you want to visit Corcovado National Park.

The people of Finca Exotica offered us a beautiful stay in the middle of the rainforest and near the Pacific. We had a great accomodation, excellent dinners, very good guides for Corcovado National Park (we saw the Puma!) and the wale watching tour. And our children really felt at ease there.

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

“What Finca calls "tents" are actually quite nice, 8 foot tall in the middle, and permanent structures made of wood, etc. The main advantage to having a cabin is more privacy, more space if you have a lot of luggage, and your own hammock.”
