STEP AWAY FROM THE EVERYDAY
Nestled just forty minutes from La Fortuna in a mountain valley near the gateway to Arenal Volcano National Park and the shores of Lake Arenal, Rancho Margot is the perfect escape from the routine and ritual of everyday life. Here, you’ll find personalized experiences to help you get in sync with nature’s pleasing harmony.
Beyond an eco-resort, Rancho Margot is a burgeoning regenerative community. Our operations are designed to promote biodiversity and sequester carbon emissions. We constantly strive to find better ways to satisfy our needs without compromising the precious resources that will be needed for future generations. And with an unwavering commitment to education, it brings us true joy to introduce guests to the wonders of our world. Here on the ranch, “Pura Vida” (the pure life) takes on far greater meaning.
EVERY ROOM IS A ROOM WITH A VIEW
Spread out over more than four hundred verdant acres, Rancho Margot offers ample lodging and endless scenery. Our nineteen bungalows and twenty bunkhouse quarters are generously spaced apart affording guests both privacy and picturesque views of the rolling mountain rainforest. Bringing a touch of the outdoors indoors, each room features handcrafted furniture made from wood harvested primarily on our grounds.
EVERYTHING IS IN ABUNDANCE, ESPECIALLY ADVENTURE
Whether you want to explore the sprawling ranch on a series of hikes, watch for wildlife, or schedule an off-site tour of the Arenal Volcano or nearby waterfalls, boundless adventure awaits. Feel overwhelmed with options? Our friendly staff and expert guides are happy to help you plan your time and curate your experience.
HERE, REIMAGINING THE FUTURE IS A DAILY PRACTICE
Not only is Rancho Margot a recreational eco-resort, it also serves as a living laboratory for those hungry to learn about sustainable resource management and regenerative practices. Certified carbon neutral in 2012, the ranch focuses its efficiency and resource choices on reducing our impact while supporting the ecosystem in which we live. On your visit, every day and at every turn, you will witness our careful management of resources geared to maintain our sustainable, off-the-grid operations. You’re also welcome to participate in one of our many educational programs and workshops. Maintaining a beautiful resort is one thing, but helping to create a better world for future generations is our true mission, day in and day out.
