Rancho Margot at La Fortuna Costa Rica

Owned by the local Sotheim family, Rancho Margot is a sparkling example of sustainable tourism and self-sufficient development in the region. The Sotheims have tirelessly strived to go beyond standard sustainable practices and spearheaded several conservation projects in the area along with an arrangement with Monteverde Conservation League for creating the Rancho Margot Ranger Station within the Children’s Eternal Forest. Seductively located on the shores of Lake Arenal and the Cano Negro River Valley, and encircled by a lush rainforest, this thoroughbred eco-lodge is also hailed for its wide assortment of education, wellness and adventure activities. The owners are constantly doing their bit for sharing their vast knowledge on sustainability and eco-conservation with visitors through countless creative and educational environmental programs. Apart from being a working ranch, this quaint countryside charm sporting property also features a full working dairy farm, a tiny pig farm, an organic vegetable/fruit garden, a medicinal plant area and a chicken farm. Rancho Margot is also involved in Animal rescue and reintegration with an on-site center dedicated to the cause. This unassuming holiday retreat with a heart trims the more extravagant frills offered by other eco-resorts, while concentrating on offering its guests an intimate, family style environment and an unadulterated natural experience.
