Surf, Learn to Surf or just Hang at the Beach!

Our Casita del Bosque is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath home with a wrap around patio, perfect for a couple.

Our pricing varies with number of nights stayed and we do offer monthly rates.

Eco-Friendly: Rancho Cecilia is an Eco-friendly destination. We have built with as minimal disruption to the environment as possible. Our closest neighbors, the howler monkeys thank us for this as do the other woodland creatures that still call Rancho Cecilia home. Rancho Cecilia is 'off the grid'. We are not hooked to conventional electricity.

Our electrical needs are supplied through our solar panels, wind generator and battery banks, we also have a backup gas generator and a generator for pumping water from our well to our water tanks. We have vegetable gardens, fruit trees and farm corn and beans in the rainy season.

Customize your stay:

All of our accommodations have kitchen facilities with refrigerators making it easy to hang with a cold one on the patio after a day at the beach.

Don't want the hassle of renting a car....No problem, our foreman has motorcycles and bicycles that he rents to our guests, making it easy for you to explore our beaches, both north and south and our town of San Juan del Sur.

And E-mail us and we can set up transportation from the airport in Managua to San Juan del Sur and Rancho Cecilia.

About Liz Hart-Behrens

Who are we and how did we get here?

We are Scott Behrens and Elizabeth (Liz) Hart-Behrens. Just a couple of adventurous travelers that set off to find some good surf on our sailboat "Ocean Lady" in 2004.

We sailed over 15,000 miles up and down the Pacific coast of California, Mexico and

Central America with 2 dogs and a cat! We sailed into Nicaragua in the Spring of

2007 and fell in love with the country, the people and the surf! So, we swallowed the anchor and settled down on our little slice of paradise and built us Rancho Cecilia

Liz Hart-Behrens purchased this house in 2007

Why Liz Hart-Behrens chose Nicaragua

We started building our Eco-Rancho in 2007 with the purchase of bare land. We now have three homes on the property and are fully "off the grid" for all of our electrical needs.

What makes this house unique

Rancho Cecilia is located in the countryside and close to Playa Maderas and Playa Marsella but nestled in the jungle in a tranquil setting with lots of wildlife!
