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 delicious corvina fish dinner prepared for us.....and we were starving! After gracious informative conversation, we went to our lovely room which was more than big enough for the three of us as was adequately described on the website; decorated in Costa Rican style. The kitchen and bath were quite big and the fridge was stocked with water, beer and drinks! Oh yea!! Breakfast was fresh eggs and homemade jellies, cheese (yes homemade cheese) and Costa Rican coffee.
We only stayed two nights and dinner was out the following but breakfast was delicious again. Outside kitchen was inviting and comfortable and nice place to sit at night with a drink to enjoy the quiet. The whole ranch was beautiful!
Ginger was an attentive hostess and both she Leon are so well travelled, conversation was diverse and a great pleasure! Also here was are first encounter with howler monkeys! Love their morning "songs"!!! Thank you Ginger and Leon!
