I stayed at Rancho Margot for two weeks by myself….but wasn’t really by myself at all! Upon arrival it took only minutes to meet fascinating people and to be sucked into the Rancho Margot experience. I suppose if you wanted time alone you could find it, but there were just so many wonderful people on the staff and amongst the guests that it would be a shame to isolate oneself. I stayed in both the bunkhouse (met so many people there) and later in a bungalow (wow what a gorgeous space!) The employees and volunteers were all charming, helpful, accommodating, and knowledgeable on topics such as sustainable living, politics, adventure, travel….I truly enjoyed everyone I met. The owner, Juan has many fascinating ideas to share and I know he will continue to develop this community into something simply terrific. I HIGHLY recommend this ranch, particularly if you are traveling solo. I also took Spanish classes from Ivannia and had a blast. I also went horseback riding and hiking, caught rides into town, and spent an afternoon at a nearby hot spring. For the adventurous and eco conscious traveler, this is your spot!! I will return!
