A nature lovers dream, Rancho Humo Estancia is off the well worn path in Costa Rica, located in the small town of Puerto Humo on the Nicoya Peninsula.

Will and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

A ten bedroom boutique hotel, Rancho Humo is nestled within the private reserve of Guanacaste in a thriving area of wildlife. In typical Guanacaste hacienda design, each room has inviting balconies from which to gaze at the spectacular views over the wetlands and grassy plains beyond. The hotel also offers a cosy bar with an open deck, swimming pool, living room and inside and outside dining rooms.

The cuisine of Rancho Humo Estancia is mainly home grown, and offers both traditional and local delights, as well as international dishes. Home brewed beer and some of the finest wines are also on offer for those after a gentle evening tipple.

Guests can explore the Tempisque River on a boat safari to view the extraordinary wildlife and flora up close. Crocodiles, monkeys, iguanas, lizards, turtles and a huge array of bird species all inhabit this region. In addition to a boat safari, horseback riding, visits to Palo Verde National Park, Playa Samara beach and Ostional National Wildlife Refuge can all be arranged. For the culture vultures, the folkloric city of Santa Cruz or the colonial city of Nicoya, too.
