I recently had a double hip replacement at Hospital Clinica Biblica in San Jose. It was a great experience, the doctor and nursing staff were exceptional. I was looking forward to recovering at Chetica as it seemed like a peaceful and comfortable place on their website. Wrong. The owner picked me up at the hospital and drove me to the... More

I spent 33 days at the CheTica recovery ranch, August to September 2014. To say I was pleased would be a huge understatement, I loooooved my stay!!! I can’t imagine being better taken care of anywhere else. Truly. The owners, Ruben and Lorena, their children and family and the staff are kind, elegant, spiritual, self-less, professional and so much more.... More

I was at CheTica Ranch for medical tourism in Sept 2014. In my case, I had some fairly simple medical to get done. But I met people (my fellow guests) who had extensive medical and truly this place (I am convinced) made a positive difference in their LIVES, not just on their trip. I am probably in need of more...

In 2004, I researched and selected a cosmetic surgeon and a recovery facility in San Jose, Costa Rica. I chose Che Tica Ranch for my recovery and it was a great decision. So, when I planned to return this August 2014 for cosmetic updating, I chose Che Tica Ranch again. It was even better than before! In addition to the... More

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

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
