I can see why people do not want to leave here: the staff is kind, loving and supportive; you get three very good meals a day in your room or in the dining room—you choose; free wifi; pretty rooms; a trained, lovely, gentle nurse who has seen it all before; a beautiful, cool, restful environment with a walking path; rides...

I stayed at the Che Tica Ranch for one week in May 2014. First of all, its location is beautiful, Tranquil, peaceful. You stay in one of your own spacious cottages. The staff here were amazing and made my stay enjoyable. Ruben (one of the owners) made me feel like one of the family. If you are looking for a... More

I stayed two weeks after my surgery and the constant care and attentiveness of the staff made my recovery very pleasant and easy. The owner, Rubin Martin is passionate about providing excellent care to his guests. The cottages are rustic, spacious and charming. The ranch is surrounded by acres of natural beauty and the air is clean and fresh. Ruben's... More

Early this month, I travelled with a friend to Costa Rica for plastic surgery and we both stayed at Che Tica Recovery Ranch. It far exceeded my expectations in the expertise and kindness of the staff and the accommodations. We had our own charming, very comfortable cottage nestled in a hillside within a short walk to the main house. Spotless... More

Traveling to Costa Rica to have surgical or major dental procedures done? Then Che Tica Ranch should be your recovery destination. The owners, Ruben and Lorrena, invite you into their family, provide support and care for you that you simply will not find anywhere else. I spent eight days recovering at this lovely ranch, perched high in the mountains of... More

I just returned from two weeks at Che Tica Ranch. It was all they said it would be and exactly what I needed. Competent, kind, knowledgeable and hospitable staff, well appointed rooms, balanced and nutritious meals, rides to and from my appointments and extra amenities like DVD's and books. After the first day when I took meals in my room,... More

Excellent, heart warming stay. I stayed 10 days at the ranch through the Christmas holidays. I have traveled throughout the world and stayed in many hotels of five star ratings, none of these came close to providing the level of care and kindness that I received while at the ranch. Ruben and his family made me feel like family.

Our family has stayed two times at Chetica Ranch, once for ten days just my husband and myself, the other for a month with our whole family and our dog. If I did not feel comfortable with our first visit, I would not have taken my children the second time. Both our stays at Costa Rica were positive experiences considering... More

I was there for 2 weeks. I didn't have heat in my room fo 5 nights, no phone for three days, construction noise until after 8pm. Rubin and his wife always had excuses. They pointed out that this was not a 5star hotel I just can not recommend this recovery center. It is too far from anything, especially the drs.... More
