Property description

Our 20 acre organic eco retreat is nestled in lush virgin forest and rolling pasteur lands.Perched on a hill above the Pacific Ocean at about 2000 feet of altitude, you'll experience relaxing breezes and cool night temperatures at our unique Costa Rica experience. Located between two National Parks, Cangreja to the east and Manuel Antonio to the south, hiking trails are abundant both in the parks and on site at Rancho Tranquilo. Abundant waterfalls and natural pools are available for swimming and provide a cool retreat after a day's hike. Natural hot springs were recently discovered nearby! Horseback riding and ziplining the canopy are also available nearby. Away from it all, we are only 20 minutes off the paved coastal highway, 30 minutes to a quiet non-tourist beach and 40 minutes to world famous surfing beaches in Esterillos and Playa Hermosa. Jaco, a tourist town teaming with restaurants, clubs and shopping is 45 minutes away. Awaken to the sounds of exotic birds and view blue morpho butterflies throughout the property. Rancho Tranquilo provides relaxation in a natural Costa Rican rainforest.
A 2500 sf thatched roof open-air common area has kitchen, dining and lliving areas decorated in local artisan furnishings. All lighting, fans/electric is solar powered. There are fans, but no A/C. A fire pit is available for fireside evenings under the stars you can almost touch!. There are 2 shared bathrooms, one full with shower, the other 1/2 bath, and 2 additional outside showers, one on an edge overlooking the forest with the sound of the river in the distance. Pura Vida!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Living at the Jersey Shore, we longed for a winter retreat. One trip to Costa Rica and we were hooked! We purchased a beach area lot and a couple of years later we saw this property. Once again...hooked!

Why the Owner Chose Esterillos Este:
We loved the serenity of the mountains, the beautiful views from any location, the plethora of exotic birds, butterflies, and other animals including monkeys, and the incredible starry nights. We decided a couple of years in that we wanted to share this natural beauty with other visitors so the real Costa Rica would be known .

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
This is the 'other' Costa Rica, far away from busy tourist towns. If pure, abundant nature is what you are after, this is your spot. You'll feel like you are floating above the clouds when you awake and will stay in a Pura Vida mode the entire stay. Guests are welcome to enjoy the fruit from our many fruit trees. Fresh Costa Rica coffee is brewed each morning and enjoy a traditional Tico breakfast before you begin your daily adventures.
