There’s way to much to say about this place. Starting with the owners who are a pleasure to meet, they make you feel welcome and warm, they speak multiple languages which makes it easy to communicate and we enjoyed long conversations with them! The place is just magical, the lodge was equipped with everything you could need, including a nice hammock were you can relax and watch the nice views. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was huge with a great view to nature. I enjoyed waking up to the sound of the exotic birds from the area. If you want to relax and scape from the city’s noise this is the perfect place. The whole staff was friendly the food was cooked with local ingredients which made it super delicious!! And about the chocolate they produce...this guys know what they do..simply the best I’ve tasted! Natural, organic and is fantastic to see the whole process starting with cutting the fruit from the tree!! Which by the way, also taste amazing. Love it.…
We spent three beautiful days with Pablo and Ana in this tropical mountain paradise. We means a family of five from Germany. The kindness and interest of the owners are exceptional. A true friendship was rooted in those days. I can highly recommend this haven to all nature, food and scenery lovers around the world. A must see!
This was an amazing experience and place to stay. Had my own cabin with hammock and rocking chairs. Fridge provided, plenty of electric sockets. No glass in windows but good grills with provided natural cooling and no mosquitoes. The ranch is run very ethically. This is a place to get back to nature. Relax and enjoy the scenery. Take part in the chocolate tour to see how the owner supports the local community. Early dinner at 6 so staff can go home to their families. Set meals with all locally grown produce. You will wake early with the natural sounds of the rainforest. Had a great time with the friendly dogs on site as well.
We stayed two days, and if we come back, we shall probably stay a little longer to enjoy La Anita Rainforest Ranch and its surrounding. Our bungalow was very comfortable with a hammock on the balcony to appreciate the calm evenings. A very interesting tour of the cocoa plantation and it's chocolate making process (the chocolate is delicious!!!). For those who like hiking, you will find nice trails around the plantation. Breakfast and dinner are served in the restaurant overlooking a little lake (we discovered fresh "palm heart" which are so much better than the one we have access to in cans!). And last but not least, the amazing team who run this ranch will make your stay very enjoyable. If you intend to travel in Costa Rica, DO come and visit..
Perfect place to stay if you have a car! It's a bit of a drive to Rincon, but if you like to drive it is an amazing drive! The ranch is perfect wide and lots to see and do! Really do the chocolate tour!
