  • Overflowing with beauty

    "Our stay was eye opening to what our footprints leave behind, as we travel through life. The bio-dynamic regenerative agriculture they practice on the farm is very well thought out and provides the land with so much enriched soil, in turn providing the best plants and food for our bodies. The cabina we stayed in was perfect. Plenty of space, shelves and hangers for our clothes and a bed to sleep. We went on several tours, including a hike up a mountain to see the most beautiful waterfall and a spectacular banyan tree, which a couple in the group was able to climb. We were able to help plant some lemon grass in an area around the common area. The wildlife was everywhere you looked. Toucans, scarlet macaws, parrots, monkeys, lizards, wild turkeys, and so much more. If you want to get back to nature, and learn to give back to the earth, I recommend staying at Finca Morpho in Costa Rica. It is a great learning experience for anyone who is wanting to learn about sustainable life practices. Thanks to everyone on the farm. You all showed great hosting abilities and made us feel very welcomed. Love to you all!!! Melanie Pentecost, CFD Siloam Springs, AR"

  • Authentic Costa Rican Experience!

    "I don't even know where to begin....the location was perfect (especially if you are looking for a quiet place, with a spectacular view and loads of animal "visitors"). It was a short walk, to a pretty much empty beach, and a short walk to 2 superb waterfalls which the caretakers, Isaac and Desiree, brought us to (although definitely bring your runners/hiking shoes!). The house was wonderful for 3 couples and now seeing it, I wouldn't hesitate to invite a fourth couple...the 4th bedroom is in the main lodge but can be totally private by closing some screens and has it's own ensuite bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and pots/pans etc. We cooked most of our meals but had Isaac arrange fresh fish deliveries. Desiree cooked one of our last meals there...and if we had known what a fantastic cook she was we would have had her prepare a few more! We also went to Martina's (sp?) Bar for lunch several days (it was awesome!). We did the Encanta la Vida Lodge (which is a 10 minute walk from the house) for dinner one night and it was awesome too! We never had a bad meal...Costa Rican food is sooooo good. We rented a car...definitely take pictures of your rental car before and DEFINITELY get 4 wheel drive (and as high a clearance as possible!!) The roads are an adventure in themselves! Ximena gave us some great advice and tips before our trip so we were very prepared with everything we would need in the relatively remote location. Although the neighbouring house was much closer than it seemed in the pictures, it had no impact whatsoever on our enjoyment of the property! Our stay at Casa Marmaris was wonderful....I can't wait to go back!"

  • Magical time in Atrevida at Puerto Jimenez

    "Beautiful, natural location surrounded by local exotic wildlife like howler monkeys and macaws only a few feet away from a secluded, clean, gorgeous beach. Amazing, hard working staff always ready to help and assist to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Luis, the chef, is incredible. Delicious, healthy meals every day with personalized service. The cookout at the beach with the bonfire and a full moon reflecting off the ocean was the cherry on top of a perfect stay. ."

  • FANTASTIC STAy in Paradise!

    "My husband and I and our 20 year old son recently spent a fabulous week over Christmas at Playa Lapa in Carate. If you and your family are true nature lovers wanting a remote unspoiled destination to completely unplug from the pressures and stresses of modern life, then you will be in seventh heaven. If you need air conditioning, constant entertainment, wide screen TV’s, hair dryers, a huge fridge and constant electricity look elsewhere. There is no electricity, just solar panels. We were probably over cautious with our extremely minimal use of lights in the evening as we really wanted our fans to work in the bedroom! The master bedroom was quite cool, but our son’s room did not have as much circulation and he did get bug bites at night. The description on the website is very accurate...but the pictures really do not do it justice. It is gorgeous and the approach to the house from the gate with its royal palms looks like the entry to the Garden of Eden. We did several hikes-one 18 kilometer hike to the famed Sirena Station with our own guide and saw the elusive and most friendly puma reclining in the shade, a napping tapir, a band of up to 30 coatis, collared anteater, countless birds including scarlet macaws, the Costa Rican coast guard (brown pelicans), egrets, hawks, eagles, owls, trogons, basilisks, peccaries. We also saw trees with up to a dozen scarlet macaws, sloths , magnificent scenery with a swim in a waterfall and spied the much feared Fer de Lance venomous snake-all with the expert guidance of Cristhian Jimenez, a great guide recommended by the owners. The beach outside the house is insanely beautiful, the sand is soft and velvety and the sunsets outstanding, but real swimming can only be done at low tide. Because the destination is so remote with absolutely no air pollution, the night sky is amazing!! We made our own breakfasts and cooked the occasional meal. While there is a gas stove, an outside BBQ and a medium sized fridge, I was on vacation and wanted to have meals at the neighboring eco lodges. We did not rent a car as we did not feel comfortable driving through rivers to reach Carate. We kayaked in the nearby lagoon and loved it. We heartily recommend Playa Lapa Enjoy!"
