La Anita Rainforest Ranch, Rincon de la Vieja
Absolutely loved our stay at La Anita. From the time we drove in to the minute we pulled out, Pablo and Anna made us feel like family. Such a beautiful property. The food was excellent and I was very happy to have stayed here

La Anita Rainforest Ranch, Rincon de la Vieja
My wife and I just got back from spending two days at this amazing location. We could not have been more impressed. Everything we did was fantastic. It was a bit difficult to get to but that made the experience even better. Pablo and Anna are the most wonderful and helpful owners I've ever come across and their entire staff was fantastic. If there was anything we wanted to do, such as a canopy tour, zip line or hike to a nearby waterfall Pablo arranged it for us, had lunches packed and even billed it to our room so that all we had to do was show up and enjoy. The food here was amazing. This is taking farm to table as far as the concept can possibly go. I could go on and on about how fantastic it is here.

Cabin in Paradise
You will have to endure bone-crunching unpaved potholed roads to get to Finca Anita, but once you are there, you will be warmly welcomed by owners Pablo and Ana. The cabins are well designed; their main asset is a wide front porch with two rocking chairs and a hammock. The views are spectacular. By far the highlight of our trip was the tour of the cacao plantation, which also involved tasting a lot of chocolate and learning the process for growing and processing the cacao nibs. There is wifi in a common area near the chocolate processing building. The inside of the main lodge is set up to serve meals. There are no menus or prices posted so you might worry that the hosts would take advantage of the remoteness of the place and overcharge. In fact, beer and glasses of wine were billed at three bucks, breakfast was under ten bucks and dinner (three courses---salad or soup, meat with vegetables and dessert) was fourteen dollars. Pablo was accommodating in terms of setting up hikes or adventures for guests, and had the uncanny ability to remember every guest's name, despite there being nine cabins. It was a very personal experience. On the cautionary side, there is no hot water in the bathroom sink for shaving. It is helpful to have the flashlight app on your phone so you can safely traverse the path back to your cabin after dark. There are two friendly pooches to pet and a couple of horses fenced in front of the cabins.

Relaxing with real chocolate!
Great place to unwind and relax. The Cacoa plantation farm was really interesting. The tour given by Paulo was informative and interesting. We learnt a lot about chocolate, its production, history and what makes real chocolate!
