More Room Types

The Rancho Humo Estancia is an eco-friendly boutique hotel that sits on 2,000 acres of private reserve land. The hotel consists of only 12 guest rooms, so the experience is personalized without noise or crowds. A modestly sized pool sits on a sundeck overlooking the lush landscape. The food, a favorite feature among guests, is handmade with local ingredients used in every dish, and all of these made-with-love meals are included in the room price. 

There are three room types, all with new bedding, fresh décor and the best views and natural lighting from the large windows. The suites have floor-to-ceiling glass doors that lead out to a private balcony so guests can stargaze and enjoy the gorgeous views.

When staying at the Rancho Humo Estancia, not only are the wildlife excursions similar to that of an African safari without the price tag, but there are several activities that are complimentary to guests of the hotel. To kick things off, the hotel offers free boat safari tours on the way to/from the airport by way of the Tempisque River, where anything from storks, hawks and herons to crocodiles, howler monkeys and spectacled caimans can be spotted. That sure does beat taking a taxi.

The opportunities to witness nature at its finest are never-ending at this hotel. The walking tours and vehicle safaris highlight the beauty of this local terrain. Walk amid the natural surrounding and milk a cow or learn about the iguana breeding enclosure. And if a white sandy beach is a must-have, head to Playa Samara or Playa Carillo, where you can witness sea turtles nesting while soaking in some sun.
