Our family of 4 stayed at Rancho Armadillo for a week over Spring break. Without having really planned anything in advance, we had an activity-filled yet relaxing and restorative vacation. We have owner/proprietor Rick Vogel to thank for this. Without being intrusive, Rick takes care...More
Rick is a real pro. He has set up his property with his guests comforts in mind. He has thought of everything. He is also a top notch concierge and chef. He made sure that we were able to do everything we wanted to do....More
Rancho Armadillo is everything wonderful that all the other reviewers have said about it. It's all a result, I believe, of the relationships that Rick has with his guests, his employees, and the Playa del Coco community. Rooms are spotless because he treats those who...More

We are located on the side of the mountain overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo, about 1 Mile from the beach in Coco. (10 -15 minute walk downhill) Because the mountains come right down to the ocean each of the beaches north and south of us require a drive. Playas Hermosa & Playa Panama to the north of us is about a 10 minute drive and Ocotal to the south is also a 10 minute drive. Taxi's to and from Coco are about $4.
I highly recommend renting a car, there is so much to do and see in this area, by having your own transportation it will be much cheaper and more convienent in the long run.
