The views are stunning from the main house where you have breakfast. Saw tucans and iguana from the balcony. Relaxing pool area. The accommodation is spacious but quite basic,however it was adequate. Little kitchen area outside which is really useful if preparing your own lunch. Breakfast was pancakes,fruit and bread. A bit disappointed with that compared to other places. Restaurants... More

Rancho Capulin was our first place to stay in Costa rica. We stayed in La Casita. Highlights: Only 1h drive from San Jose, close to Park Carara, nice welcome by hostess Claudine, beautiful garden, excellent swimming pool to cool down after sunset, extensive breakfast with view on the valley, scarlet macaws flying over in the morning and late afternoon.

I originally booked the Rancho but ended up staying in the newly built casita. Super cute, well designed, light, bright with plenty of ventilation and... More

It was a great place to stay for a young couple like us. Some costa rican b&bs are a bit disappointing in terms of standards and this one was just perfect. The room was very clean and modern, the pool is nice and we had a delicious breakfast in the morning. But most of all, Claudine and her son were... More

We loved our 3 nights stay at Rancho Capulin. The views are absolutely breathtaking and the garden is beautiful. Our room was very comfortable and cool with the two ceiling fans and slated windows. We especially loved the pool and the outside area where we spent our evenings. Claudine was a wonderful host and served the most delicious breakfast of... More

Stayed there for on night as we left eh country..so no need to mention that it was not a pleasant moment and yet the hosts made our last hours in Costa Ria very enjoyable! We were even more convinced that this country attracts people of quality. The place is spacious, and the dinner & breakfast were the best! Amazing views... More

We flew into San Jose and we made Ranch Capulin our first stop for the night before continuing south. Claudine and her husband were gracious and accommodating hosts.
