Sitting on the lakeshore in the scenic foothills of Arenal volcano, this agreable ranch particpates in ecotourism and agriculture projects, giving a real sense of community

Staying at the friendly and welcoming Rancho Margot, wholeheartedly dedicated to sustainable living, is an experience in itself. You are free to roam around its 400 acres of land, participate in organic farming activities or free yoga sessions, and enjoy the two warm and cool, untreated pools, fringed by tropical foliage. Mosses, vines and wild flowers cover public spaces and the roofs of the individual bungalows, which are stylishly decorated inside with white walls and wooden accents.

Sitting on the lakeshore in the scenic foothills of Arenal volcano, the ranch takes on volunteers to help with ecotourism and agriculture projects, giving a real sense of community. Almost all the produce needed to feed the staff, family and guests is grown on site and is imaginatively prepared by the chef: the wonderful food is often remarked upon by guests.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

Thus is more than just an ordinary hotel but it's aim is total sustainability.  They already provide all their own energy needs and much of the food provided is supplied by their own livestock or grown in their own grounds.  Truly fascinating.  There is a free 2 hour tour of the ranch which is highly recommended.  Only criticism is that the light bulbs are all low energy which is fine but they just need more.  The bedrooms are particularly poorly lit and the bar/ dining area felt a little dingy.  Definitely worth a visit.
