Just got back from another great time at Rancho Leonero. They had a hurricane that dropped 16in of rain in 24hr a couple days before we got there. It had caused some issues but the resort was doing there best to deal with it.
If you like remote, laid back, great fishing, and a place with nothing to do this is a great place to stay. The resort is a small place around 30 rooms with thatched roof and stone walls and tile floors. Grounds are nicely kept. Staff is pretty friendly and helpful. My wife and I love this resort. We go there for a week and fish for 3 or 4 days and the rest of the time just veg, its a great realxing time. We have never left the hotel grounds except to fish on any of our trips here.
Food is pretty good and varies from all you can eat rib night to a t bone steak to a mexican buffett. Breakfast is either a buffett or ala carte. Anyway the food is good and you can drink the water here.
Fishing is the real reason we come here though, that by itself makes this a great place to come. The hurricane had messed the sea up pretty good and the fishing was slow the first day or two we were there but picked up and got better and better each day of our stay. By the time we left fishing was almost crazy with all boats catching tuna, dorado, and marlin. I caught a blue and strip marlin, a bunch of rooster fish, a bunch of dorado. We brought back a cooler full of fish.
The boats are very reasonable with super cruisers go for 385 a day and pangas at 250. The boat crews are good, friendly and will take you to the fish no matter how far they have to go which generally isnt to far. They had kayak fishermen catching tuna and dorado right out at the boat moorings in front of the hotel.
I am already planning my next trip back for May. I would recommend this resort to fishermen which is about the only people you will find here. There is no real night life here everyone goes to bed fairly early and get up early to go fishing. I love this place...
