  • Abangaritos, Nr Palo Verde National Park
  • Full Board

Located on the Pacific Coast in the province of Puntarenas, this 350 hectare working ranch affords wonderful views out over the Gulf of Nicoya.

Hiking through the dry forest on one of the four marked trails allows guests to experience the different habitats of the reserve and provides the opportunity to view some of the 125 bird species as well as monkeys. An essential part of the stay here will be a boat tour along the canals of the Abangares River, going deep into the mangrove forests amongst waterfowl such as herons, pelicans and egrets. Crocodiles and iguanas can also be seen.

The accommodation consists of twenty, simply furnished wooden rooms. The 'family style' restaurant serves mainly Costa Rican and Italian dishes. There is also a bar area and swimming pool.
