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.
Our stay at Rancho Capulin was amazing. The Place is beautiful and the rancho offers all you need, we had even a wonderfull private pool in front of our beautiful house. Claudine was a great host, taking care the whole time of us and giving us tips to explore the sights nearby. The breakfast was delicious, with fruits from the garden, Self made pancakes and breat. We recommend 150 % Rancho Capulin.
This was our favorite accommodation yet! Beautiful family that runs and own this. We felt so welcomed and looked after. The breakfast is to die for. Homemade Crepes and fresh fruit with coffee and juice.
So glad I stayed here..wish it had been longer. This is a perfect location to start or end a trip due to the location. The property is well maintained, room was clean and well maintained. I originally booked the Rancho but ended up staying in the newly built casita. Super cute, well designed, light, bright with plenty of ventilation and the added bonus of a mini fridge. The pool was refreshing for the hot days. Claudine is the perfect host, attention to detail and an amazing breakfast! Will definitely make this a stop on future trips.
Amazing stay here with Claudine for 2 nights. The private pool was great and stellar views of the rolling hills. She is awesome and even made us breakfast on the large porch that overlooks the valley. There were a few insects that made it inside but that is to be expected when in Costa Rica and be aware that the casita is open air (with screens) so you will be able to hear the wildlife at night/in the morning.
Stunning, peaceful, tranquil location. Only sound was the birdsong. Beautiful accommodation next to the pool. Great. breakfasts and a charming, helpful hostess. One of the very best hotels we have stayed at. Exceptional value. Don't miss the Jose's Crocodile Tour and the Carara National Park.
Claudine has been a great host and her properties are wonderful. The rancho had everything we needed, though we only stayed for one night when we drove through to Manuel Antonio. Could have stayed longer :). The views from Claudine's terrace at breakfast are amazing. You will see the river Tarcoles and the Carrara National Park. Breakfast itself, as everyone says, is also really great. :) Pool is wonderful. Would definitely come here again!
Meine erwachsene Tochter und ich haben am Ende unserer 3-wöchigen Costa Rica Rundreise zwei Tage im Rancho Capulin verbracht. Eine abgelegene, sehr sauber und gepflegte Unterkunft, die nicht zu viel versprochen hat.
Ein sehr guter Ort, um nach den vielen aufregenden Erlebnissen der letzten Wochen etwas runter zu fahren.
Claudine hat uns herzlich empfangen und uns morgens ein sehr leckeres Frühstück mit Crepes, Obst und selbstgemachter Marmelade auf der Terrasse ihres Hauses, mit Blick über das Land bis zum Pacific, serviert.
Aufgrund ihrer Vielsprachigkeit ist interessanter Smalltalk kein Problem.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Krokodiltour und exzellente Fischrestaurants sind, wenn man mit dem Auto angereist ist, nahe.
