Rancho Margot

Deluxe Bungalows: Each spacious bungalow is equipped to house couples or groups up to four people. Beds feature orthopedic mattresses set with handcrafted frames. All furniture, right down to the rocking chairs and the bedside reading lamps, is built on-site with locally grown teak. Bungalows have private bathrooms with a shower and handmade soaps.

Resting on the hills and slopes of the Ranch valley and tucked within the lush landscape, you will find your own deluxe bungalow. The six streams and the Cano Negro River coursing through the property create an orchestra of peaceful sounds together with the diverse calls of hundreds of bird species, the trill of insects and the call of howler monkeys. From each bungalow's wrap-around terrace, you can swing in the hammock to the sounds of the forest while admiring the botanical gardens and Lake Arenal in the distance.

The trip was phenomenal! … Everyone was so accommodating and great to us at the resorts; the food we were given daily was hands down the best and the living quarters we got were amazing; the excursions that were included and the excursions we paid for were, as expected, memorable and everything you'd want them to be.

Everything was fantastic!  Loved being out in the wilderness just relaxing.  Alex is awesome (but I did know that going in).  And I found everything to be very well organized and planned out... I've already recommended you to all my yoga friends (teachers and practitioners both).

Kayaking, waterfall hike and swimming, zip lining, yoga in the open air pavilion, the camaraderie of the group at meals, in the evening etc. Basically, I liked everything.

This trip was amazing! It was beyond all of my expectations. Harris and I were the random couple from Florida on this trip, but we never felt separate, out of place, or not a part of the group. Every single person on this trip was lovely and I really feel I have made new friends for life. There is no doubt that I would follow Kim Smarr and her group anywhere. She was simply wonderful and to be doing yoga twice a day in a rainforest paradise is every yogi's dream. I felt so connected, alive and spiritually recharged. This trip was so enjoyable I cannot say enough good things about Rancho Margot and Kim Smarr. I could not have asked for anything more... except time! I didn't want to leave! This was a great, great experience!
