Rancho Armadillo is a collection of spacious houses generously spread out over the estate. It's just outside of Playas del Coco. Just far enough to let you enjoy the peace and quiet but also close enough to get you to the shops with a five...More
My fiance and I spent 9 days staying at Rancho Armadillo and would highly recommend it. Rick was a wonderful "host," providing us with very helpful information and recommendations on what to do (and what not to do!) during our stay. He went out of...More
Absolutely couldn't have had a better experience. Title line above says it all. Would only add that Rick was a fountainhead of local knowledge and anecdotes about life in his part of Costa Rica. Would absolutely visit again and recommend unhesitatingly to any friend.

We are located on the side of the mountain overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo, about 1 Mile from the beach in Coco. (10 -15 minute walk downhill) Because the mountains come right down to the ocean each of the beaches north and south of us require a drive. Playas Hermosa & Playa Panama to the north of us is about a 10 minute drive and Ocotal to the south is also a 10 minute drive. Taxi's to and from Coco are about $4.
I highly recommend renting a car, there is so much to do and see in this area, by having your own transportation it will be much cheaper and more convienent in the long run.
