We really enjoyed our stay! Cia made us feel so welcome and the room was great, with a three speed fan which was plenty since it was cooler on the hillside there. It was our most comfortable stay in Costa RIca. Cia arranged a guided horse back ride for our group that was wonderful! Great views and delightful trails for... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Rancho Rico for a month last summer. Cia Ricco is a gracious host who made me feel like I was at home. My fondest memories are of all the sunrises spent sitting under the rancho drinking tasty Costa Rican coffee and indulging in my daily young coconut. I would wake to the deep... More

Cia, the owner of the ranch, had us over to stay for 4 nights, and we had a lovely time. "Us" was my girlfriend and mother in law, two gorgeous Dutch women and me, the American boyfriend-in-tow. During our stay, we went to a coffee farm, took in the sugar cane plantation, walked the property and made sure to grab... More

My husband and I visited Rancho Ricco for our honeymoon in May. Cia and her son welcomed us into their home. This is far off the tourist track - just how we liked it! Cia was away for most of our stay there but her son (in his early 20's) took excellent care of us and really made us feel... More

Perfect winter break, after all the activities of the holidays! Rancho Ricco welcomed me with open arms, friendly smiles, a clean and comfortable room, delicious fresh foods, and the cleanest air and water! I could have been happy spending my whole week lounging on the patio, reading and smelling the flowers, watching the pet monkey, or hiking around the ranch,... More

Rancho Ricco, The Center for Healing, is located in the Guanacaste Mountains overlooking the Gulf of Nicoya. Once you arrive you will be treated to fresh squeezed fruit juices, ripe papayas, just picked melons, and sweet mangos along with your just collected eggs. All food is prepared freshly on the premises by local caring staff who will attend to your... More
