Is the one word I would use to describe Che Tica. I don't think I would have had such a great appreciation for all the details and thought they have given to their recovery center if I hadn't stayed at another establishment before transferring to Rueben and Lorena's hidden paradise. I truly believe that when I arrived at Che Tica... More

If you're looking for a place to recover from surgery or even just to relax - you've found it. I couldn't have felt more safe and taken care of. Ruben and his staff are so wonderful and welcoming. They do everything to make you feel comfortable. I'm a picky eater and they accommodated my "picky" ways.

Recently (August 2015), I journeyed to San Jose, Costa Rica, with my dear friend as a companion during her surgery and subsequent two-week recovery period. It was enlightening to be guests at The Che Tika Ranch, where we were fully cared for under the supervision of owners Lorena and Ruben, definitively professionals in accommodating patients post-surgery. All necessities, as outlined... More

I spent 14 days recovering from surgery at Che Tica Ranch. What a wonderful experience!! Ruben and Lorena are so welcoming, genuine, and helpful. Frances is a giving and caring nurse who made me feel very confident in her care. The delicious and healthy meals were delivered to my cottage by a cheerful, attentive staff. I can't imagine attempting to... More

Upon arrival, our plane was 'ONLY' five minutes late, and we had to 'CALL' the CheTica Ranch to have them come and pick us up. This was to be inclusive in the cost of staying with them. We ultimately called them, and while attempting to call, they finally showed up. They informed us, that 'OUR DOCTOR' wanted, IF AT ALL... More

Recently in June of 2015 I had the opportunity to stay for two weeks at Chetica Recovery Ranch in Costa Rica! I cannot begin to describe the wonderful experience I had while there. Though my plane was late by almost an hour and a half, I found the Chetica driver waiting for me at the airport upon my arrival. I... More

Fantastic people, beautiful location, great food! I had major abdominal surgery in late May of 2015 in San Jose Costa Rica, and stayed here with my son as caretaker. This place is more designed for dental and minor surgery patients, but they did their best to make sure I was well taken care of. I was here in the rainy... More

I went to Costa Rica for a face lift & breast augmentation all by myself by choice from Canada, but the minute I stepped into Costa Rica Rueben, Lorena, Francis & all their staff were there to take care of me & not at 1 time did I feel alone or scared.

Staff is great and it is a safe place but it seems as if profits are more meaningful than delivering a quality experience. Accommodations are small and we're lacking in basics like consistent heat in the rainy season. One of our fellow residents did not have heat for several days. She was 2 days post op and suffering so as... More

Just returned from a 2 week stay at the ranch after undergoing surgery . This was my 3rd stay there. I loved my cozy Toas cottage with its warm fireplace and wonderful window seat.
