La Anita Ranch is an experience like nothing we have ever had before. It is hard to give due credit to Pablo and his staff for everything they do to make their guests feel welcome and at home. The beauty of this secluded ranch takes your breath away: the spacious green and most luscious landscape; endless singing of the birds;...

We made the mistake of letting a helpful gentleman at our previous accommodation recommend an alternative route (from Arenal/La Fortuna). The route via Upala was great until we reached the tiny village of Buenos Aires where we spent the next 12kms and over an hour driving up and down what couldn't even be considered tracks. The going was tough, even...

We found La Anita on the web, after deciding we wanted to visit this off-the-beaten-tourist-track volcano area, and it looked very appealing, so we took a chance. We were not disappointed. From our very first telephone call with Pablo to our enjoyable conversations during our stay, to our last goodbye on the road, where he followed us in his motor...

This little Paradise was the highlight of our Costa Rican vacation. Our cabin was everything you need to totally unwind, complete with hammock on the porch. The meals in the lodge were prepared by ladies from the near by town. Food was incredibly good, lots of dishes that we had never tried but were very pleasantly surprised. Pablo's chocolate tour...

Everything about our stay here was terrific. The cabins are charming, beautifully kept, comfortable bed, completely screened, comfortable chairs and hammock on the porch. We enjoyed the chocolate tour, the cooking class at a local home, and on-site massages. The meals were delicious. The hosts are lovely people, warm & welcoming, knowledgeable about the farm, local area, and Costa Rica...

Whether you seek the peaceful beauty and tranquility of this beautiful part of Costa Rica...the adrenaline boosting memory making hikes, horseback riding, swims in waterfalls and the on site "hidden" swimming hole...the culture and education you gain from Pablo's Chocolate tour or the caring finca workers or your dining friends from corners of the world... this is the place for...

Our first three nights in Costa Rica were spent at La Anita Rain Forest Ranch and they were the best. Pablo, one of the owners and the host was on hand to greet us and show us to our room. You get your own cabin with a wide veranda and a hammock and rocking chairs. Big comfortable beds and plenty...

Once you realise that large size view of rainforest is better than large screen TV you will appreciate every detail about the place. Houses where guests are staying are professionally done, with good size. Large bad, big bathroom, big porch with two rocking-chair (!) and chammock, and open-air "windows" secured with mosquito net. You literally experience sleeping in the rain-forest....

Although we travel frequently, we have not stayed anyplace quite like La Anita. The 10 identical cabins were immaculate. Pablo, the owner made sure we had anything we asked for - and many things we had not considered. The cabins were built so that each had privacy from the others. He made reservations for us to go horseback riding. The...
