About this listing

The space

The Rancho is located at the edge of the famous Carara National Park overlooking the lush forests that Costa Rica has to offer and the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. We are located approximately one hour from the Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose and 30 minutes from Jaco Beach.
The accommodations offer the perfect combination of secluded natural beauty and contemporary domestic comforts. There is comfortable lodging for up to 4 people offering breathtaking views as you enjoy your breakfast on the patio or take a dip in the private pool.
Get close to nature with the many adventures Costa Rica has to offer. Glide over the canopy of the rainforest on your zip-line tour, golf, horseback riding, ATV tours or play in the water as you kayak, snorkel or experience the excellent surfing and beautiful waterfalls. You name it; it’s here for your taking.

The Rancho
This comfortable casita is called Rancho because of its typical Costa Rican style of construction. The Rancho is nestled at the edge of the forest. The swimming pool is at your doorstep set in a spacious patio and is surrounded by lush, tropical gardens. It offers two queen-size beds and a private bathroom. Continental breakfast is included with your stay.
There is a fridge and a cooking plate to prepare snacks or meals. A ''pulperia'' (small supermarket) is within walking distance. You can also enjoy meals all day in the restaurants close to the village of Tarcoles just a short drive away from Capulin.

Carara National Park marks the transition between the Amazonian and Mesoamerican ecosystems (dry and wet climate zones).
One of Costa Rica's most popular national parks, the reserve includes primary and secondary rainforests, a lagoon and marshlands.
It is home to more than 400 birds species and a breeding site for at least 40 pairs of Scarlet Macaws.

Rancho Capulin B&B is a true gem. As soon as we arrived we regretted we had booked accommodation there only for one night! The place is surrounded by beautiful nature and there's a pool right next to the building we we're staying. The building is fresh and trendy, and has mosquito nets both in the sliding door and around the beds to keep away unwelcome guests. The bathroom is something I would have for myself at home any time – high-class equipment and materials. Claudine is the perfect host, warm-hearted and friendly. She keeps wonderful care of her guests and also offers a lovely breakfast at the deck of the main house with amazing views all the way to the river. Butterflies and birds feel at home at the garden, and we even got to see wild parrots – red aras – flying over the property and landing on the nearby trees. We can definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling in Costa Rica. Full 10 points!

Claudine was a very nice host! Her breakfast in the morning was incredible. The pool is awesome - but at night the animals and insects are very loud. We also had a few critters in our room that night..which was a bit scary, but overall it was a great experience!

This is my second time staying at Rancho Capulin and it was just as perfect as before. There location is quiet and secluded, yet still has several delicious places to eat very close. Its only a short drive to Jaco. Claudine is such a great hostess and cooks a delicious French breakfast that she serves you on her patio with the best views. I definitely recommend staying at Rancho Capulin.

Beautifully scenic spot perfect for a relaxing chilled out time in Costa Rica. Very basically furnished (there is a BBQ if you want to cook), so be prepared to head in to Jaco for something to eat. The local restaurants shut approx 1700 so be sure to bring some supplies if arriving close to that time! Lovely place with amazing breakfast views!

This place is a hidden gem. We picked it based on the location and the reviews. It is a beautiful setting, the landscaping is lush, we saw Macaws, monkeys, crocodiles. The breakfast was amazing, just like the reviews said. A really nice mix of modern convenience with Costa Rican jungle. Lastly, Claudine could not have been more gracious. We would definitely stay here again when visiting this area.
