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 was plenty of hot water and excellent wifi connection in her dining area. The bungalow was spotless and very colorful with kitchenette. The view and sunsets were breathtaking and the lushly planted grounds and pool were beautiful. Do not miss taking a tour of the cloud forest at Colinas Verde with Will, the owner, who is a very well educated young man with a tremendous knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area. He has set up zip lines, a canopy platform, and suspension bridges on the property and is providing a great example of sustainable tourism and environmental responsibility by attempting to restore the cloud forest. We also really enjoyed taking a tour of the Macaw Sanctuary El Manantial in Aranjuez (a small village next to Puntarenas) where Rodolfo and his partner are raising the endangered Scarlet and Great Green Macaws to release back into the wild. The macaws are free to come and go as they please on the property. You will never see such a high concentration of macaws anywhere else in Costa Rica. You cannot go wrong staying at Finca El Mirador.

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.

Finca El Mirador is a perfect place to stay. The rooms are very clean offer a lot of space. The grounds are well kept with many plants and flowers. The view is absolutely stunning! I was lucky enough to watch a monkey playing in the trees and toucans flying by. Uli, the host, makes you feel welcome and right at home the moment you arrive. She is very helpful at offering suggestions of things to do and places to see. This is a great place to relax and unwind. I highly recommend Finca El Mirador. It is truly a piece of paradise!

What an amazing location. We were there for just one night, but we wished to have more time. A lovely pool, a nice garden, a more that perfect host with Uli, very individual and creative rooms, an excellent breakfast, a gorgeous lookout (if it is not raining :-), nice surrounding and an adventurous way to the Finca.
Also the area is very nice, even if it is not marked in our travel book. Roud the corner in Miramar is a nice (german and trustful) canopy tour or horse riding.
Who wants to enjoy nature is absolutely right there!

We are a family of five (two adults and three boys aged 8, 12 and 15) who stayed at Finca el Mirador for 5 nights January 2011.
We all loved the place!
The cabins were lovely and very clean, the view probably the most stunning we have ever seen, and the host Uli extremely welcomming, friendly and helpfull.
From the moment we arrived, Uli made us feel completely at home, allowing us to move the garden funiture whereever we wanted in her beuatyful garden - leaving us in privacy when we wanted, but always available when we needed an advice or had a question.
Her two dogs are so friendly and well behaved, that even our 8 year old, who is normaly afraid of dogs, grew to love them.
It was the perfect place for an relaxing holiday, and we were all very sorry when we had to move on.
We will be back soon!
