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.

This location is a bit of a drive from Jaco so a little isolated but gives a nice nature feel. Lots of animals throughout the night too so may be tough if you're a light sleeper but we enjoyed it! Also this is pretty much the pool house but still a very nice stay. Views and home are beautiful, and wish I could've stayed an extra night to enjoy breakfast!

We had a great couple of days here. Our favorite parts were the wonderful breakfasts (with views of the ocean, macaws, and toucans) and the pool. It is rather isolated so dining options in the immediate area are limited but Playa Herradura is 15-20 minutes away.

Claudine is a very friendly and helpful host. The room was very clean and spacious for the two if us. Breakfast was lovely and there was a beautiful view from the deck. Loved that they have a nice pool to cool off in. Great stay!

This property is fantastic, the pictures do not do it justice. A secluded place that is perfect for slowing down and relaxing.

We stayed here one night and it was a true paradise. Beautifully located in the middle of nature. Very nice and private swimming pool with comfortable sunbeds. Room (or actually it was a cabin) is great! Very comfortable and clean with a great shower. We did not see many mosquitos here. Location very close to Carara National Park. Breakfast is delicious and plenty.
