Fidelito Ranch welcomed us and offered a lovely (tailored to our vegan needs) meal in a great outdoor gazebo.The accommodations are very comfortable, nicely decorated & includes a kitchenette & large bathroom. Brigitte & Leon are very friendly and Brigitte took us on a very pleasurable horse ride with happy horses and beautiful paths thru their countryside. A great place... More

It was great to be in such a centric place, surrounded by nature but will all commodities on site. Our son rode horses, milked cows, played with dogs, listen to monkeys, saw macaws and iguanas. Additionally, breakfasts were delicious and fresh everyday! We'll be back!

The room was quite spacious and perfect with its well outfitted... More

For what kind of people is the Fidelito Ranch? You should be looking for a place a little off the road. The ranch in the middle of nature and it feels very remote there but in the most positive way. There is so much to see just by lying in the hammock, enjoying the surroundings and the nice view. You... More

The ranch is just few units, both are large with kitchen and spacious bathrooms. perfect for relaxing in quiet environment and listening to animals and birds. Horse riding is available on premises, so the food and drinks. All made by Brigitte, the friendly hostess.

We stayed at Fidelito for almost a week and loved every moment of it. Food and facilities were up to international standards, clean and professional: the rooms are large and well-equipped. Leon and Brigitte are both knowledgeable and friendly: they know all the local attractions and many of the people. Brigitte helped organize the rest of our stay, phoning around... More

To start we arrived AFTER dark off the Punterenous ferry, which is not recommended on the Nicoya Peninsula; but due to the awesome perfect directions from Ginger, we three older women made it to the ranch without a "hitch"! And to boot, as we had been "on the road" from new jersey for 13 or so hours, she had a... More

What a beautiful ranch nestled in the hills just a few miles inland from Tambor! Intimate with only two apartments; it all works because your hosts Leon and Brigitte are experienced tour guides from all over the globe. They are very hospitable and extremely interesting. They love their ranch and contribute to the local community. Beautiful people, and they make... More
