The dining experience at Rancho Pacifico is like no other. Our “Whale’s Tail Club” dining room and lounge overlook the Pacific Ocean and the famous Whale’s Tail beach. Our resident chefs prepare cuisine inspired by culinary traditions from around the world using only the freshest local ingredients from the land and sea. And our full-service bar features an extensive wine list, national and craft beers and cocktails made with fresh local fruits and juices.



Start with our complimentary breakfast – a full a la carte menu including freshly squeezed juices and of course, Costa Rican coffee. Enjoy a delicious lunch by the pool featuring fresh salads, homemade tortillas, and perhaps some grilled calamari or roasted chicken. Dinner is a complete sensory experience that changes nightly using fresh, local ingredients. We are also happy to accommodate your special dietary needs.



Our pineapple basil martinis and celery cilantro gimlets are legendary. With a full line of premium spirits, we can satisfy almost any beverage preference. We feature an extensive wine list with an emphasis on wines from South America. For beer lovers, we offer Costa Rica’s national brands plus craft beers brewed exclusively for Rancho Pacifico.
