I came here with my niece and we rented a jeep. We picked up the jeep from the San Jose Airport and let me warn you it is a few hours of a drive. The last mile was on an unpaved road, we got there very late and there was no lighting. Just getting there was an adventure.
Rancho Margot was a lot more than we expected. We absolutely loved it!
There were no phones in the rooms and the only form of communicating was via internet in the lobby area.
The food was very healthy, mostly all came from the ranch itself.
We traveled to El Rio Celeste and a few other surrounding towns. Another warning most roads are not paved and if you are scared of heights and don't drive a stick, I highly recommend just hanging out at the Ranch which is still a lot of fun!
There are lots of fun things to do like, hiking, horseback riding, mountain rock climbing, ziplining...
I would definitely go back.
