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. The care, food, lodging & views are incredible.... More

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. The owners and staff were very attentive to all my needs and quickly followed through with all my requests. Most of all , there was a... More

I was in Costa Rica in April 2015 for surgery. A friend of mine, Evelyn, was staying at the Che Tica recovery centre in the mountains and invited me up. Evelyn and owner Lorena came and picked me up. We had a bit of sightseeing on our way up to the mountains, through the centre of San Jose and Lorena... More

Being that safety is my number one value traveling solo, the Ranch delivers a peace of mind that my needs will be met. I love the fact that I don't have to be social unless I'm feeling it. I won't be fed Super sized meals I feel compelled to finish. I can do as much as I want or nothing... More

I've been to many places throughout the world during the past 50 years. I like to explore places that are new and different from where I've come from...different sounds, food, sights. I like to stay in places that are unique to that country. I want an experience that is unique...otherwise I'd just stay home. CheTica was for me that kind... More

Poor and very disappointing, where to begin, they were late picking me up at airport, noise place, food was limited and I was starving the whole time I was there. I would not go back, nor recommend. Sorry :-(

This ranch was a perfect location, excellent care from a kind nurturing staff and the food was incredible!!! My recovery was expedited as there are places to walk and the temperature is cool. The owners are wonderful and even provide a BBQ on Sunday's for all of us. This is the place to come!!!

CheTica, for me, is the kind of facility I needed to recover from extensive surgery. My first trip was in November of 2014, I stayed 13 days, my second trip was in February and March of 2015 when I stayed 5 weeks. The first thing you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you a... More
