Fantastic way to unplug!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five nights (my husband, three daughters 9, 10, 12 and me). It is off the grid, which is what we were looking for! We stayed in Costa Rica a total of 11 nights, which included a few nights in Uvita and a few in the cloud forest (San Gerardo). I would say 4-5 at Finca Manglar was a good amount of time. I didn't let anyone bring electronics and we packed very light so we could be adventuresome and we were! We didn't need electronics at all! During our stay we took a mangrove tour where we saw a lot of wild life, visited the private beach/tubing and took the capitains fishing tour. We loved it all. Our favorite ended up being the fishing trip because we were lucky enough to have seen whales playing and breaching within 20 feet of us for 30-45 minutes. Truth be told, if that had not happened on that boat trip, I would have been disappointed with that trip. We spent $600 (not including tip) for the family, and the capitain and crew were not particularly helpful with the fishing etc. My daughter did catch our dinner, but, I had to help my kids the whole time and couldn't really fish myself. The whales, however, made the trip worth every cent. We also took a day to drive to Bahia Drake and did a 2.2k zip line. It was rainy season (Aug), so, we got trapped on the other side of the river for 24 hours. That was a little scary, but, just the kind of adventure we were looking for and Lia was very responsive and helpful! We stayed the night there and were able to get back the next day. The only thing I really regret not doing was a full day visit into Corcovado National Park. It was hard to get to from the farm, but, I would figure out a way to add a day or so to your trip and go there and stay for 2 days. Based on everything I heard from our local guides, it is fantastic. We planned to go there and then spent a day stuck on the other side of a river, so, didn't work out! Couple of things to know. Plan your meals! Bring TONS of ice. We brought an ice chest and I was grateful to have it! We had Dolly prepare our evening meal which was a lifesaver! There is a small solar refrigerator, but, the ice and ice chest kept things much colder. Or, if you plan to stay long and prepare your own meals, plan for non-perishable food items and you'll be fine! Also, bring plenty of cash for tours. Driving back to town for cash and ice is a long trip and you won't want to leave the farm for that purpose, if you can avoid it. A+ to Lia, Dolly/Evolito and Luis!

A wonderful getaway from the chaos of everyday life!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the finca. It is the perfect place to relax and unplug if you are looking to go off of the grid. Luis, Dolly, Evelio, Ruth, and the staff at the nearby Sabalo Lodge were all extremely friendly, warm, and knowledgeable. I'm sorry but I've forgotten the name of Ruth's partner, but she was kind and courteous as well. Lia was very helpful with travel tips to and from the finca. We did many great tours with Luis and Perla del Sur. Dolly is a fantastic chef! Evelio was very helpful and one of the nicest people we met! Our family of six have nothing but great memories from Finca Manglar. For future travelers: you must know that there is no hot water, no telephone, no cable, no television, and limited solar power. As long as you are aware of this before you book, you will not be disappointed. Pura Vida!

Perfection place for adventure and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

The drive from Uvita to Sierpe was where the adventure began, along with crossing the river by car on the ferry !! Our stay at Finca Manglar was ablsolulty rejuvenating, from studying and working in New York to completely disconnecting and emerging into the jungle was everything my college friends and I needed. Evelio, who lives on the farm, was of great help and made us feel safe our entire stay. We had an absolute blast with the kind tour guide Luis, he took us to mouth of the river, where we were able to walk on a beach that we had all to ourselves, just as the hike to the waterfall where we got to climb up on a rope and jump in the refreshing water. That same day, we got back to the farm where Colombian sancocho and empanadas were cooked for us by Dolly, the food was to die for !! The next day Luis took us toobing, kayaking and padding in the mangroves; where we also got to pick the catch of the day from the local fishermen for out dinner later that night. The fish was so fresh and delicious. Besides the amazing food and activities, Finca Manglar is gorgeous and relaxing, the entire house is open which allows for wind to refresh us, and it allows us to constantly have the view of the farm’s surroundings. We honeslty cannot wait to go back and unwind from the crazy New York life.
