You can find Rancho Burica where the bad road ends and the good life begins. We are in Punta Banco, a beautiful beach town on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Rancho Burica is a piece of paradise with beach front cabinas, a yoga deck overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a wave out front for the surfers among us. Set in the lush jungle, surrounded by animals and our very own garden waterfall. Rancho Burica offers you great hospitality, peace, quiet and beautiful surroundings.

Rancho Burica has all the elements of an extremely relaxed vacation: beautiful nature, stunning empty beaches, friendly locals, great food and comfortable housing. Our stay here was the highlight of our trip through Costa Rica. The hosts, Marthe and Jonne, are wonderful. There’s loads of fun activities from surfing, boat trips, horse riding along the beach towards Panama and relaxing yoga on a unique deck high in the jungle. Loads of wildlife, whales, toecans and sloths. Our girls cried when we had to leave after 10 days in this small piece of paradise

We had a unique experience there. It is just that it wasn't not the aboundant canopy of the jungle neither the paradide-like beaches, it was the super friendly staff and the people we met, that's authenticness.

I spent 3 nights here and it was a tropical dream. The peace that you find here is wonderful. In addition, it is very cozy during breakfast and dinner. Everyone eats together at one table. The hosts are very friendly and told me which activities I could do in the area. It is located by the sea, where you can gaze out all day long. In 1 word: PERFECT

We were told to go here by “a guy” we met. Nearly 20 years ago it surely was some kind of secret spot. No map, a real off-road road, broken bridges, just follow the road to the end. Nice people, awesome wave (it’s Pavones!), a really good tica chef. I’d come back. 🤙🏽 Just wandering if David B. Is still around ✌🏼

One of the lifetime experiences. Rancho Burica in a hidden corner of the beautiful Costa Rica can give you one in a life time peaceful experience. The accommodation has a most magical setting overviewing the ocean where we could look at whales passing. The rooms are spacious, comfortable clean and high standard. The rancho has a unique and peaceful rhythm on its own that lets you relax within seconds. The managers, cooks are a well organised team ready to meet your neeeds. The meals we ate where healthy and extraordinarily delicious which quite unexpected concerning the fact you trully are in the middle of nowhere. Rancho Burica offers multiple relaxing and engaging activities. The waves are amazing, It's pretty crazy how much off goodness got hidden in this small area. I wish we stayed longer...
