Staying at La Anita Ranch was one of the highlights of my trip for many reasons. It was peaceful, serene, absolutely gorgeous, and …. IT WAS A WORKING CHOCOLATE FARM. That last item for me is a game changer because, duh, I love chocolate. They also grow a ton of other fruits, vegetables, etc. on property that become the fresh... More

I was there three dash last week, it's time to open contact, see people how they are, how they work, how they take care of there visitors.... It is just perfect. The owner Pablo and his wife Ana are just the right person at the right place. They are so friendly that you dont want to move somewhere else. At... More

I could repeat ALL of the positive already posted. They are all true. La Anita provided a fabulous experience and view of life in rural Costa Rica. A highlight for me was the "Cooking Class" at the very rustic home of a local family. To prepare a meal together over a wood oven (their only oven) and then share it... More

We stayed at the beautiful La Anita rainforest ranch in January. The hosts, Ana and Pablo, were warm, helpful and gracious. The food was delicious and the wines wonderful and reasonable priced. Beautiful birds came each morning to entertain us on the veranda. The ranch is close to the volcano walks.

This wannabee ecolodge should be recycled along with their coffee grinds. The lodge is located very far from anything on very bad roads, so it took us four hours to arrive even though we were "next door" at rincon vieja national park. anyway, we quickly realized it was not worth the drive as the room was nothing special other than...

We did not plan on staying at La Anita but we were very glad we did! Because of a mistake in reservations at another hotel we were given the opportunity to stay here. We did not really know what to expect but we were extremely happy with everything about it. Pablo the owner greeted us when we arrived and made... More

I'm not sure where to start... From arranging everything at the very beginning -this place is a fantastic getaway with no worries once you get there! Ana and Pablo are wonderful people and are so knowledgable about things I enjoyed being in Pablo's company. Ana was out of town but was in contact. They truly care about your experience and... More

Awesome and beautiful place to visit. Every thing about this place is immaculate and very relaxing. The wood work of the cabins is unbelievable Pablo goes out of his way to make sure all the needs of his guests are met. My wife was feeling ill and he had his ladies make up some fresh ginger tea; the ginger was... More

La Anita was very beautiful and relaxing. It was a little different than what I was expecting. I guess I thought it would be a smaller and a more intimate environment. I was told that the Ranch is on about 750 acres. Ana and Pablo are very sensitive to their guests needs and making sure that they can do whatever... More
