Only stayed here one night for the purpose of hiking Rincon de la Vieja National Park but would have gladly stayed longer. Quiet, restful, modern place on a working ranch in a great location outside of Liberia. Our room was large, clean and comfortable for a reasonable rate and included a very good breakfast. The hosts provided nice, shaded verandas... More

This is a great place. We rented four rooms (two families of five). Rooms are clean and with airco (needed) and wifi. The gardens are great. The owners is very friendly and gave us very usefull information. We went swimming in the pool in the river. Liberia is just five minutes by car and Rincon de la Vieja is half... More

We spent four nights at Rancho Curubande, in one of the two bungalows. We arrived late on New Year's eve (9 PM), and had to let ourselves in as the place appeared deserted except for some dogs. The owner Sergio answered his door after a few knocks, and showed us our place. Sergio is friendly and welcoming. The bungalow was... More

We stayed for one night to visit Rincon National Park. We stayed in one of the motel rooms, clean, basic. Rooms have AC and big bathroom but no hot water. We were the only guests. The woman checking us in was also serving us the breakfast. She only spoke Spanish but we managed to communicate pretty well with our Spanish.... More

We stayed here for three nights on our Costa Rica trip. Upon arrival, the situation was a bit kafkaesque, since there was only a (just spanish speaking) elder lady to check us in and then we were essentially alone on a big property with magazines from 2006 lying around (we left some from 2011 :-)). Actually, I really liked the... More

The ranch is very convenient to Liberia if you want to stay close to Rincon de la Vieja without being far out. The style is basic but you definitely feel like you are on a ranch (because it is a working farm). It's a perfect place to stay when in Guanacaste since this is "cowboy" country. The service was great...... More
