Why Stay At Rancho Pacifico

A contemporary nature retreat secluded in the heart of 250-tropical acres is the authentic Costa Rica experience.

The Scoop

Howler monkeys are your wake-up call at this certified "green," adults-only retreat on 250 acres of dense rainforest. An adventurous spirit is a prerequisite, but roughing it is not, with comforts like private plunge pools, an open-air spa, and organic four-course dinners at the resort's private dining room. Indulge in a body wrap of indigenous plants in the tranquil spa gardens, or venture on a private hike through the nearby rain forest and waterfalls at Marina Ballena National Park. As there are just 10 rooms overall (and a maximum of 24 guests at any given time) bonding with staff is in short order, sharing tips on bird watching, zip-line tours, and fishing expeditions.

Insider Tips

For a particularly steamy natural encounter, book a villa with an open-air two-person shower.

Hike through the resort's 60 acres (part of a 250-acre natural rainforest preserve) for great wildlife and bird watching.

Hotel Report From the editors of: Travel+Leisure

Why We Love Uvita

Extraordinary (seasonal) whale-watching in one of the most ecologically-diverse regions of the world.

Don't Miss

Best Day Trip: Ride the 1.7-mile zipline in the Monteverde Reserve with Costa Rica Sky Adventure (tours from $65), giving you close-up glimpses of forest-dwelling animals, as well as views of the smoldering Arenal Volcano.

Where to Eat: The hotel's private dining room, Whale Tail Bar & Grill, serves a classic Costa Rican breakfast: homemade tortillas with huevos, Turialba cheese, and sautéed plantains.

Where to Drink: Whimsical spirits, like the celery-cilantro gimlet and apricot-ginger mule, are made from tropical fruits and vegetables at Rancho Pacifico Bar, and are best enjoyed on your private sundeck while looking out over the Pacific.

Where to Shop: Located 2 miles from the hotel, the up-and-coming village of Uvita sells handmade souvenirs and native clothing.
