Surrounded by tropical wildlife

Wildlife: base your rainforest wildlife immersion at Finca Exotica Eco Lodge

Endless deserted beaches, blue ocean, lush green and wherever you look you will see colourful feathers flashing thru the leaves: that is the Osa Peninsula, defined by National Geographic Magazine as “the biologically most intense place on earth”.

Most of its surface composes the famous Corcovado National Park, which is the last existing tropical rainforest on the pacific coast of this continent.
Finca Exotica is surrounded by this unparalleled biodiversity and forms biological continuity with its biosphere, in other words: when you are on Finca Exotica, you practically are in Corcovado (just look on Google Maps!). This area harbors over 500 species of trees, 400 species of birds (we have about 850 in Costa Rica), 140 mammals, 116 species of reptiles and amphibians and way over the 6000 identified insects.

All this lushness and diversity brings the miracle of life to our awareness, you feel the wealth of the natural treasures surrounding you.
