We traveled to Costa Rica to visit our daughter who is in an exchange program and we're looking for a place to stay close to Miramar. Initially planned to stay at Finca El Mirador only for a couple of nights but loved it so much that decided to extend our stay for 4 days and rather take day trips to...

We spent two nights here as it was very close to the Adventure Park up the road. The view from the pool area is amazing. One day we had clear views of the bay and an okay sunset. The next day we were in the clouds which was also nice to experience. Adriana was a great host. She would check...

A smaller resort 8km into the hills near Miramar at elevation 600mt. With a great view of the valley from Miramar to Puntarenas and the Bay of Nacoya, this resort has a wonderful setting. From pool-side you could see the ships coming and going to the ports in Puntarenas, even more of a sight advantage with binoculars. We tried to...

Finca El Mirador was a great place to begin our exploration of Costa Rica. Uli is one of the warmest, cheerful, and attentive hosts we have ever experienced. She really makes this place special, and our two daughters immediately felt comfortable with Uli and her beautiful dogs. She achieves a perfect balance between being attentive when we need it and...

I returned to Finca El Mirador this past February. Upon arrival I was instantly reminded why I fell in love with this place the first time! The staff (Uli, Gloria and Cesar) were so friendly and welcoming, making sure I felt right at home. The gardens were beautifully kept, rooms very clean and comfortable and food delicious! This place is...

I just returned from my second stay at Finca El Mirador and can't wait to go back. Uli is a beautiful person and knows so much about the area and she knows so many people. I love just hanging out in the gardens and walking around the area. If that is not enough, Uli can help find just the right...

If you are looking for a totally "non-tourist" place, this is it. This place is as pure as Costa Rica itself. I was recommend there by an eatery in Miramar. There are new signs posted by it not easy to find but that makes this place even more charming. The cliff-side swimming pool could not have been more inviting. The...

Thought that we would only stay for one night en route to the coast, but stayed, and stayed - and am so glad. From here, you can get to villages, coffee plantations and mountains that are authentic Costa Rica. Quiet places with unbelievable views that seem lost in the touristy side of Costa Rica. Exploring around the area, you find...

We recently stayed at Finca El Mirador for 2 nights. We loved our charming Frida bungalow and had a delicious breakfast served to us on our patio. Uli was so helpful in arranging activities for us. She is the perfect hostess. She is very supportive of the local schools and community. We also loved her 2 well behaved dogs. There...

Great place to relax and enjoy some experiences and adventures away from the crowds. Plants and flowers and birds are everywhere. The view is breath taking and everything is so clean. Meals were deliciously prepared using local fruits and vegetables. Uli is the perfect hostess. I have traveled many places and this place goes to the top of my list.
