Are you coming to Costa Rica to experience nature and the rainforest, to relax on the beach, or for romance or adventure? Whatever your reasons, you can experience the best of these from Rancho Pacifico. For us, the key word is experience. Rancho Pacifico was designed to truly present an opportunity to live within a thriving tropical wilderness – not just to “see it”. You are immersed in the one-of-a-kind natural sensations that surround our remote setting – not from within an “urbanized” environment designed to make you an observer. Here, you are truly an experiencer – with the real and rare opportunity to create a memory that cannot be duplicated.
Some visitors to Costa Rica are seeking a more urban experience than they will find at RP. For example, the howler monkeys will try to wake you before the sun rises. When a tropical downpour hits, it can get damp. Occasionally you’re going to see a horned beetle, oversized grasshopper or a gecko. Our 1.5-mile gravel access road is going to transport you to “another world”. While the road is safe and well maintained, it is bumpy and steep. For guests unaccustomed to wilderness, these things may be undesirable. For others, this is why they come to Costa Rica…and to RP.
Rancho Pacifico is a relaxed place – modern in appearance, but a bit old-fashioned in its ways. We purposely do not have TV’s or phones in the rooms (we do have good cellular coverage and free Wi-Fi throughout the property). Most of the property is designed in an open-air concept without air conditioning (with the exception of our Luxury Suites and the bedroom in our Villa Romantica). At nearly 2,000 feet above sea level, the cool breezes keep us comfortable year-round.
Costa Rica is a country of rainforest – and yes, at least part of the year, it rains in the rainforest. Those seeking bright, sunny days with hardly any rain will best enjoy December through April. Other months tend to have clear mornings and afternoon showers. During the rainier season, many guests tell us they love the rain and look forward to it! They plan their mornings out – and settle down for a restful afternoon napping, reading or having a massage in our award-winning spa. But some don’t care for this routine. Please plan accordingly.
