Four of us stayed at Finca Maresia for a week at the beginning of Jan. 2012. The natural setting is lovely; the wildlife beautiful; and Juan, the owner/host, couldn't have been nicer & more accommodating. He schedules the day trips for his guests; is personable & informative & a delightful part of the stay at Finca Maresia. The 8 bungalows...

I'm a backpacker and enjoy planning my trip as I go. That said, Finca Maresia should be the place you start your journey, perhaps the only reservation when you get off the plane. The exquisite design sense, great value, and cozy atmosphere that the inn-owners create is second to none. Pair that with the incredible naturalist outings with which you...

My wife and I decided that we wanted to go to Costa Rica, and particularly to the Osa Peninsula. We went to Tripadvisor and found a jewel of a place in the Finca Maresia. As we went through the Finca's advertisement we became more and more excited. We booked the superior bungalow for eight nights, from November 17th to November...

This hotel was by far the best stay of our 3 week tour around the country. Our bungalow was clean and modern with an awesome shower! We woke up in the morning to toucans, scarlet macaws and howler monkeys. The meals were incredible, drinks were cheap and the atmosphere just awesome. Juan went out of his way to make our...

Excellent all the way! Thanks to Juan for taking so good care of us, helping us planning the excursions, the travelling before and after our arrival, making sure everything is OK. All the excursions we did were GREAT, loved the night tour that we did around the lodge (no need to get to the village), the guide knew his stuff,...

Finca Maresia is located beautiful on the top of a Hill in drake bay. I stayed for 3 nights in one of the rooms for a very affordable price. Although I have seen quite à few excellent lodges in Costa Rica, Finca Maresia has something special which I think has everything to do with the owner and host: Juan. He...
