About this listing
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.
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 was such a great place to rent during our vacation. The breakfast was wonderful, the scenery was breath taking and Claudine was incredibly hospitable. I could not imagine staying at a better, tucked away paradise than what they had to offer. Macaws flew by every morning, Tucans were in her area, as well as howling monkeys.
My boyfriend and I are first time travelers so Claudine went above and beyond to help us during our travels.
Overall it was very relaxing. When I return to Costa Rica I will pay Claudine a visit again.
This property is a short walk down a dirt road to a bus stop that we used frequently. The locals were either nice or didn't pay us any attention making local transportation easily accessible. If you are not up for bus rides, renting a car would not be a bad idea.
As soon as we got in we knew we should have stayed here longer; the place is gorgeous; giving a warm and welcoming ambiance indeed. The rooms, the beds, the pool, everything--pristine. Claudine really is the host. She makes a hearty yet lite breakfast and her views on the balcony were staggering. (Binoculars, cameras a must.) Getting there may be a bit tricky but so long as you are near the famous bridge, you are in good hands. Just give her a call and she'll come and swoop you off your feet. This was a great place to stay, Claudine and company were fantastic!
Claudine is a wonderful host. The breakfast she provides is amazing. She is very friendly and is easy to communicate with. Her property is very beautiful. I recommend having your own car so you can come and go easily as its a bit far from points of interest. If you have a fear of bugs I don't recommend this place but that's what you'll get throughout Costa Rica unless your in a fancy hotel. Claudine was so flexible with check in and check out it made our trip so easy. Highly recommend staying with Claudine
Wat een fantastische plaats om te verblijven! Wij zullen de b&b van Claudine echt aan iedereen aanbevelen. Fantastische gastvrijheid door Claudine, ze gaf ons veel tips en wilde alles voor ons doen. Ontbijt was heerlijk en de kamer erg schoon. In de tuin veel dieren gespot en het zwembad was erg aangenaam om in te relaxen. Voor ons de beste plaats die we gehad hebben in Costa Rica.
We loved Claudine's Cabina and pool. She had great hospitality and good directions.
Rancho Capulin is a little slice of heaven. Secluded, but in close proximity to anything you might need. Claudine's homemade bread & delicious breakfast was our kids' favorite. The grounds are kept immaculate & landscaped with great care. The local area offers a myriad of fun activities and provides the opportunity for cultural immersion. I would recommend anyone to stay & enjoy.
Staying at Rancho Capulin was the ideal start to our first trip to Costa Rica. She was very attentive to make sure we had everything we needed, including information about things to do in the area, restaurants, stores, etcs. The crepes were delicious, and the view from the terrace astounding--and a good place for birdwatching. Having the lovely pool all to ourselves was magical (and refreshing after a long day of being out.) If you've never been to the area before, I can relate that the location is well situated for doing outings to a variety of areas along the coast. We especially enjoyed Esterillos, Playa Hermosa, and Carara National Park. Quepos and Manuel Antontio National Park are in easy striking distance for a day trip. And it's an easy drive from the airport in San Jose. We'll be back on our next trip!
