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

We had a wonderful experience thanks to Mrs. Brigitte whom is an amazing host. She welcomed us as if she already knew us. We only stayed 1 night on our last leg. Our daughter is 13 yrs old and she enjoyed the animal experience and feeding the horses. The room is spacious with a large refrigerator and kitchen. The two... More

It was an experience that I will never forget. I wish I was able to spend many more days there. I loved most of all hearing brigittes stories, and exploring nature on horseback..That is the most beautiful place on earth from what my eyes have seen. I fell asleep with the sounds of nature, and woke up to the howler... More

I went there in july, with my wife, and three kids (including a 5 months baby). We`re not the montezuma style tourists, so fidelito ranch was perfect for us. Its located in Panica, and there is no tourists there, and even at the ranch, there is only two appartments. So its not a busy place, no traffic, just peace. The... More
