Off the beaten path, Finca Amanecer (Sunrise Farms) is an organic spice farm offering 7 acres of “Eden” on Rio Naranjo at 300 feet elevation and only 20 minutes east of Quepos. Provides B&B service at hostel prices.
Prepare to be seduced by the fragrances of ylang ylang, el lirio, and night blooming jasmine. From Christmas to Easter is summer with warm days and cool nights. From April through November you can arrange your group retreats here and still enjoy the beaches of Manuel Antonio; class III/IV white water rafting on Rio Naranjo are also offered in these months. 100% vegetarian & vegan-friendly.
It is an organic spice farm offering the adventurous traveler an affordable stay in Londres, a typical Tico pueblo 10 miles or 20 minutes east of Quepos. Offered is clean, basic rooms, the dorms share a bath and community room. Only minutes from Quepos, but a world apart. Welcomed are pets and can accommodate groups up to 21 people. Londres is "adventure central" for Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Rio Naranjo offers world class III/IV white water rafting, fly fishing, and home to 4 of the horseback riding outfitters, one of the canopy tours, half of the ATV tours and the area hosts a multitude of waterfalls and pristine primary rainforests. "The best Spring Break ever!" and Londres has two “mini-supers” a small "bazaar" and several excellent Tico sodas/restaurants.

From the airport, (near Hampton Inn) I can arrange a shuttle bus a to Quepos for $29.00 pp.
From San Jose: At the Coca Cola bus station this is a bad part of town, take a DIRECTO Quepos bus: 06:00; Noon; 6:00 PM and 7:30 PM. Buy your ticket (about $5) inside the Mercado, buy in advance if you can, or you may have to stand. Get off in Quepos at the "Mercado", across from Super Mas.
From Quepos: Londres Buses leave the Mercado at 04:30 am; 07:00*; 09:00; Noon; 4:00 & 6:00* *except Sunday, for under 50 cents (US) or a 20 minute taxi ride for under $10.00. Be sure to ask the bus driver LONDRES ABAJO? as 3 buses will have “Londres-Villa Nueva” painted on the front windows, they will generally let you off right at our gate if you simply tell them Finca Amanecer. Follow our Ginger lined path and keep to the right if you are walking, it will bring you to our patio.
