Rancho Pacifico overlooks Marino Ballena National Park, which has a rocky formation jutting out from the shoreline shaped that’s shaped like a whale’s tail. Coincidentally, this is one of the best places to go whale watching in Costa Rica—humpback whales appear in the area from summer to fall, and then again from approximately Christmas to Easter. Visitors also come to this park for adventures like snorkeling and ocean kayaking.
The grounds have two swimming pools and an infinity jacuzzi that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. There are covered patios on the grounds that provide serene spaces for yoga and meditation. The spa puts you in the midst of a rainforest-covered mountain, and your self-care routine can continue at the resort’s fitness center. Visit the spa to choose from a full menu of massages, manicures, pedicures, and facials will help you feel your best.
Chefs at the Rancho Pacifico restaurant have access to fresh fish and local produce. Meals here offer upscale takes on Costa Rican and international classics. If you’re feeling a little peckish before dinner, the bar serves appetizers. In the morning, you can help yourself to the gourmet included breakfast.
Accommodations come in the form of suites, treehouses, and villas. All of the units have ocean views. These accommodations come with twice-daily housekeeping. Mini fridges and coffee makers round out the hominess of the space. You can access the Wi-Fi from any of the rooms and throughout the grounds. Store your valuables in the safety deposit box.
