Two nights was not enough, being surrounded by this beautiful natural place. Out of the ordinary, is this small farm that will give you a different view of Costa Rica. We felt energized and fresh again. Thank you Pablo and Ana

After reading the bad review. I want to tell our story. We spent most of day driving from San Jose enjoying the country side. As we bumped along on the country road anticipating the arrival at the "ranch". Growing up on a cattle ranch in wyoming, I was looking forward to the farm/ranch. After not eating all day we arrived...

We absolutely loved Finca La Anita. It was definitely a contender for our favorite place of the entire 2 week trip. The cabins were incredible--very clean, yet rustic, wonderful porches overlooking a peaceful, beautiful view. We can't say enough good things about this place. Pablo and Ana were incredible hosts. We took the farm tour our first day, including walking...

Our favorite place to stay of our entire trip. We started on the pacific coast and traveled thru to cloud forrest, Arenal and up to La Anita. I would spend a week with Ana and Pablo. They are great, very informative, wonderful food and excellent lodging.

My wife and I stayed at La Anita for two nights and it was the best part of our trip to Costa Rica. Every meal was simply amazing.

After discovering La Anita on the internet, we decided we wanted a different experience and booked for two nights. It was a rocky road going up to the ranch, but when we got there, we had such a warm welcome by Paoblo and Anna. Because it is a small place we met the other guests and this turned into lovely...

We came to this ranch spur of the moment and without reservations. Pablo and Ana welcomed us and worked hard to clean and prepare our room.

Beautiful cabins, the best food we ate while in Costa Rica and great conversation with Pablo and Ana. We were tight on time and unable to take the tour of the ranch before we left but I am sure we would have enjoyed it as much as everything else. Such a beautiful place to unwind and relax, especially at dusk...
