Finca de Nada consists of 65 acres of jungle on your own very private reserve with a beautiful handcrafted rancho & private tranquil bay on the Golfo Dulce. Highlights include abundant wildlife, cool jungle location, fantastic swimming & kayaking & proximity to Corcovado Park.
“Finca de nada is the perfect place for nature lovers. It is private, accessible only by boat and it's truly an immersion into the jungle/wildlife of Osa. The finca has everything we needed, from a comfy bed, to a nice kitchen facing the jungle, bathroom/shower with cool water, kayaks available to use, together with snorkeling gear and also boots for walks in the nature. House is open, meaning that we've shared our space with wonderful little creatures from the jungle. From the group of 6 bats that always went to rest hanging in the roof and bathroom during the day and started their show flying around after sunset when they prepared for their night, to the little lizard that would watch us every morning at breakfast time, to the howler monkeys making their sounds starting around 4am, then group of peccaries wandering near the house before dawn, the macaws, capuchin monkeys, the giant grasshoppers, cicadas, dragonflies, toucans and all sort of birds, some beautiful spiders in the garden that we would watch remaking their web every night, all the big lizards, one particular little snake that would always come out and stay in the same spot in front of the house, frogs and toads, and the list is neverending. We've worked out depending on tide, when would be the best time to go swimming/kayaking, I would suggest to start kayaking early morning when the sea is completely flat (but during the day doesn't get much , and also at night time to see the bioluminescence (truly amazing!) and just be careful when swimming at sunset time when it was easier to get bites. Adrian the caretaker was very nice, bringing us blocks of ice every two days as there is only a big cooler in the house. He also did some groceries for us when needed, at some extra cost. The house and surroundings is a beautiful gem, I recommend it 100% to whoever loves all sort of animals and is comfortable sharing the space with them.”
Enjoy the privacy of a lovely beach just for yourself, unspoiled like at the beginning of times. Imagine you are Christopher Columbus arriving in the Americas! That's exactly the view he must have had.
“What a beautiful property !!! And with private beach please ... We loved our four-day stay in this haven of peace, ideal for good romantic moments. The house is very large and nothing was missing. We were initially a little disappointed by the swimming pool which was not super clean but everything was quickly arranged with Mainor, the caretaker. With unparalleled kindness, he solved the problem immediately. Small flat quickly forgotten with this extraordinary private beach. Very calm sea and it is quite rare in Costa Rica, red sand and nature all around. We loved our stay and frankly don't hesitate if you like nature and tranquility. At an affordable price in addition .... Nancy and François-Michel”

“We spent some great days in Colin's fisherman's hut. We had to get used to the character of this simple hut, which had a few other animal roommates with their habits. Anyone who knows Costa Rica and spends a lot of time in simple huts knows that direct contact is sometimes less of an everyday occurrence for animals of all kinds. You should definitely be prepared for that in Colin's hut. To switch off, the place is perfect, because you have absolutely no reception and can wonderfully dedicated to the simplicity of life. The cottage is spacious and is equipped with everything you need. Toilet and shower work very well. The beds are equipped with Mosikotnetzen, the kitchen has 2 gas cookers, rice cooker, blender, coffee maker, cutlery, pots, plates, fridge ... There is even a washing machine. Everything you need to feed yourself. We rented kayaks (for a fee) and spent a great time on the water, with its secluded beaches, mangroves and rivers. Often we sat on the terrace and enjoyed the beautiful view of the water and watched all the animals in the trees. If you have a car, you can visit Puerto Jiménez or the beaches along the Golfo Dulce or the Osa Peninsula. 4x4 is recommended, if you want to make excursions in the side streets. Possibly. Be sure to consider the rainy season and water levels of the rivers. - Thanks again Colin for sharing your wonderful and unique place with us!”
