from the moment I got out of the car and was greeted by Rick, owner and operator of Armadillo, I was instantly welcomed and immediately felt right at home. The amount of information and concierge services he offers his guests far surpass many of the...More
We were lucky enough that when our airline changed our tickets, they gave us an extra night in Costa Rica. So, we wanted to move closer to the airport, but still be near the coast, and Rick's place - Rancho Armadillo - was perfect! The...More
We (a couple in our 30s/40s) stayed at Rancho Armadillo Estates in early Sept 2012, and discovered the real reason that this place is rated so highly.
It’s not the room we stayed in, which was very nice, with a king-sized bed, exposed wood ceiling,...More

We are located on the side of the mountain overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo, about 1 Mile from the beach in Coco. (10 -15 minute walk downhill) Because the mountains come right down to the ocean each of the beaches north and south of us require a drive. Playas Hermosa & Playa Panama to the north of us is about a 10 minute drive and Ocotal to the south is also a 10 minute drive. Taxi's to and from Coco are about $4.
I highly recommend renting a car, there is so much to do and see in this area, by having your own transportation it will be much cheaper and more convienent in the long run.
