Staying at Finca Exitica is an experience by itself. The road to get there has many rivers to cross and wildlife is abundant. It's great to meet people from all over the world at the dîner table where fresh and delicious, healthy food is served with à smile. The beach is great and so close, you can hear the waves...

Tranquil setting in a remote area of Costa Rica with close access to Corcovado Park. This is definitely not a place for everyone. But if you like this kind of travel/vacation - then you will really enjoy it. As mentioned, it is sleeping without walls. With that comes all the "natural" sounds of the jungle which can be peaceful, cool...

Thank you for your very honest take on what to expect at Finca Exotica ;) It does sometimes take a day or two to re-calibrate your nervous system and settle into the new environment but often once you do the body feels more vibrant and connected (in a non-wifi kinda way) than ever!

We were attracted to Finca Exotica as it is right beside Corcovado Nature Park and also Carate beach. Pictures on website were great. However our experience was not good and we left early. The property ranges up a steep hillside with main building about halfway. For young and intrepid, the basic nature of the ecolodge might appeal - no hot...

Thank you for your review. We completely appreciate that Finca Exotica is not for all kinds of people. We have a page on our website called "Is Finca Exotica for you" and recommend that all potential guests review it before confirming their booking. There we make it very clear that hot water is not desired by most people because the...

One of the best places on Earth! The staff are lovely and do genuinely make you feel at home. Food is delicious and location perfect. Just don't forget to bring insect repellent and a torch. Hammocks both on the terrace and at the beach are super comfy! Can't wait to return and stay longer this time!

Thank you! Yes, flashlights are a must and depending on the time of year insect repellent is recommended at night. We look forward to receiving you once again to drop even deeper into the mode of being.

We had a really great time, all the staff where amazing and the location was perfect! Loved the healthy authentic food. It's the perfect place to break away from the world and get in touch with nature. Saw loads of animals, loved it.

I spent 9 glorious nights at Finca Exotica and didn't want to leave. This place is spectacular and is so far superior to any other spot in the area and I'm fairly sure all of the country.

I enjoyed staying at Finca Exotica very much. We arrived late, but the staff (Alfonso?) was a big help in welcoming us, showing us the way to our Tiki Tent in the dark and carrying our luggage. The premises are very nice and so was our tent. The shower was very close and so was the restaurant up on the...

Thank you Bettina. Yes the tumeric tea is always available and it's the first thing we offer to guests that arrive with almost any ailment. Yes the 1 day tour in the park doesn't offer a loop but our onsite trails are in a big loop where you can choose which trails you want to explore ;)

This place is amazing. I went with a couple of friends to get in touch with nature and detox from the day to day strugles. This place exceeded all expectations, from the delicious and healthy food to the rooms and most importantly the energy of the staff was amazing. 100% recommended.

Amazing experience. They prepared wonderful vegetarian meals just for the two of us. Hiked 4-8 hours per day on local trails.

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
