Finca Amanecer is no ordinary hostel. We offer an Eco-Lodge experience with breakfast at hostel prices! We are situated on 7.5 acres in Londres, 10 miles east of Quepos, on Rio Naranjo. Londres is a typical Tico pueblo and here you'll experience the real Costa Rica, not Hollywood on the beach. The clean and comfortable rooms are in an authentic, funky farm house. The temperatures here average between 20-30C or 73 to 85 F. We are cooler and greener than Quepos and you will enjoy Mother Nature's own aromatherapy.

Prices are per person per night.

Simply tell the driver Finca Amanecer - (Londres ABAJO) 150 meters Despues el Puente. We are 150 meters after the London Bridge the first gate on the right. Airport pick-up from the Quepos airport is available around $20.00 per trip.

If Driving: from Quepos, at Pali go towards the airport, east 4km. (do not turn) At the gas station go straight on the dirt road 10.5 Km through Naranjito and keep right at the fork in the road. After the London Bridge, we are the first entrance on the right. Look for the holiday lights at night and our sign during the day.

We are located on a Rural Dirt Road with scenery so fantastic, local ATV tours charge $95 to experience this, scenic adventure. You can experience it on a 40 minute bus ride for a dollar. (My Daddy always said, 'Sell the sizzle') You will think you on, 'the dirt road from Hell to now where', but there really is an authentic Typical Tico pueblo out here. 'You can relax and enjoy 7 acres listening to the sounds of nature while those tourists return to noisy overcrowded hotels in smelly Quepos'. (quote from Charles McKenna, he stayed here while biking from the Arctic Circle to Tierra del Fuego)

Please note: the 'SJO' airport is actually in Alajuela, if you need Hostel recommendations search Alajuela. On line you can book the shuttle from SJO -- 'Rio Segundo' to Quepos for $40.00 pp. get off at Kamuk.

The other SJO option is the COLLECTIVO (4 to4.5 hours) from SJO to Quepos GET a taxi for $5.00 to take you to 'la parada del Puente Villa Bonita'. (look for a big gas station) on the Highway just west of the airport.

Located Near

WE are in cooler, green, safer Londres, 10 miles EAST of Quepos on a dirt road with NINE daily buses. GPS: N 9.459899 W 84.069185.
Jan-April swim in Rio Naranjo across the street, May- Nov white water rafting. Or swim in the onsite creek anytime.

Londres has a mini-super, "soda" and a bar restaurants within walking distance. Most of the adventure tours take place out here: rivers, waterfalls, horses, ATV, GREAT rafting, excellent hiking, bike for hire, and room to roam or sunbath.
