Where to even start? My wife and I went to Costa Rica for our honeymoon (luna de miel) in September 2013. We stayed for 5 nights in the Arenal area at Nayara (see my other review for this incredible property) and then planned 5 nights at Oxygen Jungle Villas in Uvita. On our third day in Uvita we decided to... More

My wife and stayed a Rancho Pacifico from 1/1/14 – 1/6/14. The location is a bit remote but very beautiful. Here what you get; a small boutique hotel where, because of the close quarters and the fact that you see the same people every night, you will make friends whether you want to or not. Although we tend to keep... More

We visited for a week in early January; a beautiful lodge spectacularly perched over the "Whale Tail". Everything designed for peaceful relaxation at the Rancho, but the excursions, especially the "National Geographic" tour of the Sierpre river also very worthwhile. The staff was wonderful, the food was varied and delicious, and the week flew by much too fast. Don't make... More

Rancho Pacifico was beyond our imagination and expections. We were welcomed to paradise with friendly smiles, a professional staff, and world class accoumodations. Our villa was exceptional in every way, with the comforts of home and amenities of a 5 star resort. Every day spent at Rancho Pacifico was better than the last. We hiked within the rainforest, enjoyed the... More

Rancho Pacifico exceeded our expectations which were high to begin with. Believe everything you read about the quality of the staff and service! We stayed 8 nights and booked active adventures every day. Adriana did an outstanding job of fulfilling all our wishes! This was the perfect home base and we were glad to return to pristine RP to relax... More

We return to Rancho Pacifico every year in February. When we left the Denver airport it was a minus 13 F; arriving in Costa Rica 92 degrees. Now with the costanera highway it's an easy drive from San Jose to Rancho Pacifico. We get there and relax into Margaritaville (actually it's Basil Martini for Susan and Coconut Martini for me)....

Spent 8 wonderful days up in the rainforest for Thanksgiving at this oasis on the hillside. Waking up to the sound of howler monkeys outside the windows and gazing down the valley to the ocean below made each morning an experience. The staff were more than accommodating to any and all requests and helped make the stay incredibly enjoyable. The... More

We are repeat visitors to this slice of heaven nestled in the rain forest though with the expanse of the Pacific in full view. We love to stay in the fabulous Tree Haus. All of my senses come alive here; the sounds of nature, the smells of the jungle interspersed with great cuisine, and of course our sense of adventure... More

All the glowing reviews of Rancho Pacifico are totally accurate. This place is paradise. The owners and staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful, the food is fabulous and the setting unbelievable. We stayed in the lower treehouse and I'm still dreaming of being open to the forest, totally secluded, and hearing the monkeys patrolling so close! Would return in a... More

My husband and I loved this place! We stayed in one of the Treehouses, and absolutely loved it. We heard the biggest complaint was that the howler monkeys woke you up in the morning, and that was one of our greatest appreciations! The staff was wonderful, and the food was terrific. The private hiking trails were a great little workout... More
