Description

This beautiful private Cabo Matapalo retreat is located at the southern tip of Costa Rica’s world famous Osa Peninsula, directly in front of the large Playa Matapalo Beach.  Enjoy the harmony and privacy of this pristine natural setting with virgin coastal rainforest and ocean beaches right at your doorstep.

Part of an ongoing reforestation project of Indian Almond Trees to support the endangered Scarlet Macaw, "Kapu"Rancho Almendros has some of the first solar powered houses built in the Cabo Matapalo  area over 20 years ago.  Rancho "Kapu" (as known by locals) is a sustainable development of land, water and solar energy.  Some of our food and raw materials are harvested on the property from renewable sources which have included our fruit orchards, bamboo vegetable greenhouses, worm composting, and bee farming.

Currently, there are three cabinas available for rent.  Each house comes complete with kitchens with refrigeration, private baths connected to garden showers, solar electric lighting with bed-room fans, hammocks, an outdoor barbecue and a cooling pool of artesian creek water.

There are five to six bedrooms available in three houses, with two guests per room for a maximum of 10-12 guests. Being a small development assures our guests the maximum in peace and privacy that larger establishments cannot offer. All of our rooms are built in the tropical style; plenty of fresh ventilation with large generous windows that are fully screened* in rooms of beautiful hardwood construction. Emphasis has been placed on your privacy.  This is truly an alternative to crowded hotels with mindless multiple cabinas. 

Wireless satellite internet is now  available to all guests with laptop computers.

.........................................................................................................

*Many lodges in the area advertise "tropically efficient" unscreened bedrooms with mosquito netting.  This does not work in the tropics with nighttime electric lighting.  Mosquito netting ends up covered with insects that can keep you pinned to your bed all night.  This can be made worse by periodic migrations.  Screened rooms are essential and our louvers and creative landscaping give you an extra touch of additional privacy which we work to maintain for our guests
