Manager: Franklyn Phillips

Bedrooms: 4 (in 2 houses)

Address: Cabo Matapalo, Puerto Jiminez, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

Telephone/Fax: 310-839-4864

Activities/Attractions: The Osa, much of which is occupied by the 160-square-mile Corcovado National Park, is a more biologically rich area than even Times Square on New Year's Eve. Known for jaguars and other big cats, the peninsula is home to hundreds of species of birds as well, including one of the largest populations of scarlet macaws in Central America.

  • Beautiful nature trails, abundant with unusual flora and fauna, lead from the Rancho in all directions
  • There are short hikes to a 20 meter waterfall, to the top of the Cape and through the dry coastal forest that runs adjacent to the numerous world class surfing beaches of Matapalo
  • In addition, Rancho Almendros also has excellent kayaking with guides, horseback riding, bird-watching, onshore and offshore fishing, snorkeling, world-class surfing directly in front of the property or at 3 other locations within walking distance, and safe swimming at "Backwash Bay";  everything available locally
  • English speaking naturalists and guides are always available for tours of the Cape through "Everyday Adventures"
  • They have, for the more adventurous, a tree climbing and waterfall rapelling tour that's not to be missed

However, one does not have to venture out to see the incredible abundance of wild life. The reforestation of almond trees right on the property attracts hundreds of Scarlet Macaw and other bird varieties, and in addition, 2 varieties of monkey can be observed at feeders in view of our main dining veranda.
