After my 13th trip to Rancho Leonero I feel compelled to write a review on tripadvisor. I, my wife,daughters and many friends travel many places in both Mexico and elsewhere, and can only say this is always our favorite. The world class fishing and top notch service can't be beat. If you want crazy nightlife and lots of hussle and... More

This place is truly away from it all. Located about 1 hour north of San Jose, Rancho Leonero is an oasis after an 8 km bumpy ride down a dirt path. You are not greeted with a moist towel and a bell hop at this place. Drag your suitcase to your ocean view casita and go back and ask for... More

I am a resort owner and gamefishing charterboat skipper out in the Fiji Islands and the Rancho was recommended to me by friends in the gamefishing community. Oddly enough, despite the exceptional fishing available there, I wanted a break from fishing and the chance to R&R in the beautiful East Cape of Baja. The Rancho was perfect. Remote peaceful setting... More

Let me just say that we have been back for 2 weeks and The Ranch is still all I can think about! My husband and I traveled with another couple for a mid March, getaway, a slower time for the East Cape. It was very warm in the day but cool at night. The first thing you need to know... More

We happened upon this resort as we drove along the dirt road from La Ribera to Los Barriles, not knowing where we were going to stay, just knowing we wanted it to be remote. We stayed in an oceanfront bungalow (#14) for three nights and it was just lovely - huge room, immaculately clean, with comfy beds and soft, high-thread-count... More

Great fishing but ,bring your own rods and reels. The tackle on both the pangas and cruisers were crap! All the reels including the accurate 665 had shot drags,most reels were penn 500 or diawa 50h and penn 6-0 from the 1970's all had shot drags!!! The boat rods were all missing guides. And the dull bronze hooks on the... More

Rancho Leonero is definitely the place to come for a fishing vacation. It's located right on the beach and each room is less than a 5 minute walk to the sand where the boats take off in the morning. It's an all-inclusive resort, so that means all three meals are provided minus the tasty beverages. We've been coming here for... More

Rancho Leonero truly is one of the "best kept secrets" in Baja. The fact that it is out of the way is part of the charm. You feel like it's something Hemingway would have loved. It's casual, friendly, unpretentious but you never feel like you're missing anything. The rooms are large and comfortable with bungalows facing the beach (best recommendation),... More

This is my third time staying at Rancho Leonero over the past 14 years. If you are into fishing this place is for you. If you are not, you will probably be disappointed. Not only is there great off shore and in shore fishing, but fishing from the beach or from a kayak here is also fantastic. The rocks in... More

Wow, what can I say, absolutely epic trip. First and foremost the atmosphere around Rancho Leonero was unmatched. this place moves at a perfect relaxing pace, that lets you forget about all your worries that you may have traveled south with. I was really impressed with the quality of the food! I have traveled to a lot of places in... More
