The ideal ecofriendly lodge for an authentic Costa Rica nature vacation!
Costa Rica is famous for its flora, fauna and wildlife, and Finca Exotica Eco Lodge is the perfect base from which to explore the Osa Peninsula’s natural treasures. Our eco lodge is nestled within over 90 hectares of primary and secondary rainforest where all of the astonishing biodiversity found in the Corcovado National Park roams without borders. You may hear, see or sense monkeys, anteaters, tapirs, scarlet macaws, toucans, armadillos, basilisk lizards and more while eating breakfast, at a yoga class, hiking our extensive trails or even just walking from your cabin to the beach. If you have any specific wildlife, landscapes or experiences you crave during your visit, let us know. We will help you craft your ideal combination of self-led explorations and guided tours.
You may venture on your own to the lagoon, on our marked nature trails, hammock hanging, surfing the waves and to waterfalls. We also recommend taking advantage of how being accompanied by a naturalist guide can enhance your experience. That may include horseback riding, kayaking, waterfall hiking, organic gardens tour, sea turtle night tours and dolphin boat tours.
Playa Carate is a small quiet village in a largely unexplored and undiscovered corner of Costa Rica. Located 42km from the nearest town of Puerto Jimenez, with 3 sides bordered by our Wildlife Refuge and the fourth with the Pacific Ocean, expect to cross over into a green and turquoise immersed tropical jungle beach paradise! The sights, sounds, scents and flavors will captivate you from the time you arrive and if you want to delve deeper into the history of the town, any creature you come across, the tiki architecture, our tantalizing fusion meals or our organic gardens, we have a very extensive library and knowledgeable staff.
