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 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!
A friendly and very accommodating hostess, a comfortable room with a gorgeous view, and a delicious breakfast. I only wish we had more time there!
Claudine ist eine super tolle Gastgeberin. Sie hat uns so herzlich empfangen und uns wertvolle Tips gegeben, wohin wir in der kurzen Zeit eine schöne Bucht zum Baden zu finden. Sie bereitet ein leckeres Frühstück mit Crêpes und frischen Früchten. Die Unterkunft ist unglaublich schön und der Pool war unsere Rettung in der Hitze. :-)
