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.

Jan-April you can swim in Rio Naranjo across the street. There is also a creek on site and you may swim in it anytime.
Londres has a mini-super, one soda and a bar restaurants all within walking distance. Most of the adventure tours take place out here, as this is where the rivers, waterfalls and mountains are. GREAT rafting, excellent hiking and bike for hire.
