Enjoy an unforgettable experience in a world of tranquility and beauty in the heart of the Humid Tropics! Your hosts, Ana and Pablo will be happy to welcome you.
Experiencing the rainforest trails, the medicinal plants garden, organic vegetables, tasting tropical fruits and enjoying a delicious high quality cuisine are some of the attractions at La Anita... Welcome to Costa Rica!
Nestled in a small valley between the Miravalles, Rincon de la Vieja, and Santa Maria Volcanoes, the ranch is surrounded by an incredible explosion of biodiversity; hidden amidst the dense rainforest live more species than are found in the United States and Canada combined! Nature lovers will be delighted!
Whichever plan you choose (one-day trip, overnight, special program or workshop) this allows you to discover the riches of the rainforest while we show our knowledge and passion for living in harmony with the environment.
At La Anita we grow a wide variety of products: cocoa, heart of palm, cardamom, tropical fruits and vegetables, medicinal plants and a nice variety of exotic tropical flowers. During the Farm Day Tour we show you how we grow and harvest our crops and we share with you some of the traditional recipes of Costa Rica! News to gourmets: the taste of our delicious local cuisine is prepared exclusively with fresh and high quality ingredients! On the menu: heart of palm ceviche, Gallo pinto, Sea bass fish with La Anita's Pesto, Pork chops with Caribbean style sauce, homemade jam, taro chips, among others.
It is a pleasure to share with you our commitment to work in harmony with our four pillars: Agriculture, Environment, Tourism and Community. We believe in equitable and holistic development of these four pillars to achieve a fair balance which we consider our greatest responsibility.
We mean to make this the most educational, relaxing and enjoyable portion of your visit to our country.
