Rancho Margot - Completely Amazing!!
Rancho Margot is an amazing place. Completely self sufficient. Really amazing. The ranch is secluded and completely in the rain forest. When you get the end of the road, you just have to go a little bit farther. What they have done to the land over the last 16 years is mind bending. If staying in the rain forest appeals to you and you're heading to Costa Rica, do yourself a favor and book a few nights at Rancho Margot. You won't regret it.

4/10 Fair

A far-out place, not what we expected, Over-priced
The "bunk house" was misleading in its advertisements and less that spacious...further, it is very noisy with all the people staying in dormitory style lodging and grass/straw/open walls and ceilings...it was also packed with mosquitos.

Amazing, unforgettable, love it!
We were last week in Rancho Margot and we were amaze how beautiful is the scenic around the cabanas. Everything was perfect, people were very helpful always try to please you and find the best solution for you. The owner is always around and very attentive to anyone....Rancho Margot has is own vegetables garden, cow and pig. we ate organic and my kids loved all meals without any complaint. We were very sad to leave. We will recommend for anyone who search the nature and not the luxury. The mattress were firm and the cabana was big enough for 4 of us. Just be ready to drive on difficult road for 10 kms. Rancho Margot is located 25 mns away from the Fortuna.
