The Rancho

Stunning views and starlit nights

Days are yours to do as you please and The Rancho is where guests have typical breakfasts, relax, play and enjoy this pristine paradise and the solitude! Stunning birds-eye views, unforgettable starlit nights and an abundance of local wildlife are the only distractions in this open air, thatched structure equipped with games, puzzles, books, stereo, private bar and a professional pool table.

A refreshing vanishing edge pool is steps-away with day beds and umbrellas on decks that provide ample space for all guests to enjoy a little privacy in this slice of heaven. Birders can lay back and take in the abundance of canopy, ground and maritime species that are present year round and many that make their homes on the property. Hammocks abound for impromptu naps!

Early morning Yoga by the pool is a great way to start your day followed with a full typical breakfast in the Rancho, overlooking the beach of San Miguel below (by request, cost additional). At night, watch the local fishermen on the 180′ horizon and the endless show of shooting stars in the stellar canopy above. Guests who rent the entire property have access to a small kitchen and a professional Weber Grill to prepare light snacks and meals.

Situated a short distance from the cabinas the Rancho and pool are are what make Cristal Azul a truly unique destination in San Miguel offering an authentic Costa Rican beach experience.

“I intend to spend many vacations here and encourage anyone who has a desire for an extraordinary location, indigenous congeniality, views that would make your screensaver green with envy and the opportunity to visit the Costa Rican coast like few ever do, visit Cristal Azul. Tip: Ask for Henner`s special Rum Smoothie. Sip, relax and repeat.”
