Words cannot do justice for Finca Maresia! But I will try. The room: Extraordinary...the room we had was big, had a great balcony looking out into the Costa Rican wilderness where you could see a plethora birds or monkeys while you lie in your hammock! The best part we thought was the open air 'facilities'; don't worry you still get...

This is the closest to paradise you will ever get. Not only are the rooms mind-blowing, with birds and monkeys waking you up in the morning, but Miguel helps you organize and plan every possible activity around. He goes out of his way to make you feel at home. The place is so beautiful that you can easily spend a...

Finca Maresia is a wonderful place to stay, very good value for the price, fantastic views into the forest, great soundtrack from birds and monkeys. Miguel will advise you on where to go and what to see and as well organize what ever is needed. A rich breakfast is included and an optional excellent dinner offered should you decide to...

As we walked into Finca Maresia a flock of parrots flew over us and I knew I was in the right place! I love how spread out and quiet this place was and I soaked up the night noises with sound sleeps, except the night the howler monkeys were being active and vocal, which was still a bonus. This was...

What a great, tranquil place to stay! Finca is a secluded paradise with a quaint atmosphere. The rooms are either private (stand alone) or semi-private (connected - you can hear your neighbor...). Each room has hammocks and porches. A terrific place to go and get away from it all. Finca has no TVs or computers. Each night, we chose to...

My husband and I stayed at Finca Maresia for 3 nights in April, 2012. We had a fantastic, though much too short, stay that was made really special by the care and attention that Miguel gives to the guests. Miguel greeted us as we made our way to shore following the boat ride from Sierpe and was more than helpful...

We've stayed twice at Finca Maresia. These guys (Juan and Miguel) make you feel special. They seem to anticipate your wants and needs and provide you with more than you could expect at most resorts. They're quick with a joke or amusing anecdote (in English or Spanish) and they just know what they are doing. They seem to know everybody...

We stayed in Finca Maresia the last four days of our stay in Costa Rica and we absolutly loved it! The best place we stayed in Costa Rica! The bungalows are a nice combination of nature and comfort. That is, comfortable beds but falling asleep with the sound of nature and waking up with the sound of howler monkeys. And...
