On this active ranch you'll find some nice and clean rooms with an hammock to relax on the front porch. We started the next day with a great local breakfast. It is so quiet and you can enjoy the countryside and stilll you are less then 8 minutes from downtown Liberia and less then 20 from the airport. Sergio, the...

This hotel was perfect for our last night in Costa Rica. The rooms are small, but they are all you need. The property was very nice and the lady who makes breakfast and cleans all the rooms was very sweet.

The Rancho Curubande is a budget motel that, to its credit, feels absolutely nothing like the Motel 6s of so many American interstates. Sure, the walls are thin and the sheets are thin and the floors have a few cracks. But this place does have a bit of a getaway feel. It’s a few miles north of Liberia, tucked into...

This is a basic lodge a short distance north of Liberia and off the highway. It is good for travelers who are on a budget. The rooms are basic and clean. It is quiet here so this is the place if you would like to get away from it all. If you get a room near the reception area you...

Great basic rooms. Good comfortable beds and super duper clean. Do not miss the river, a short walk on the property. The owner was so lovely and so helpful, take all his recommendations. We will be back here and next time will bring the kids. This area is so great for families.

We stayed here 2 nights in February. The rooms had air conditioning and hot water.The room was clean. The owner was extremely helpful. He let us use his personal phone to make a reservation for a tour, drove us to a nearby restaurant, and gave us great recommendations! The free breakfast that was served was good as well. The hotel...

Unplanned stay here due to Rincon de la Vieja NP being closed due to weather. The room was clean and neat, no bugs noted. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. A man pointed us in the direction of Howler Monkeys nearby and there were many beautiful birds on the property. The breakfast was very good. We would plan to...

I had made reservations for one night at Rancho Curubande, as a stopover before heading to Rincon de la Vieja park. A few days before we arrived, I emailed the ranch, letting them know that our flight was to arrive late (after 11:00 p.m.) so we’d be there after midnight because of customs, picking up the rental car, etc. The...

BED BUGS!! Went to bed with no bug bites and woke with 20 bites on my legs, which were under the covers, so they weren't mosquito bites. Also had the classic "breakfast, lunch and dinner" pattern. Walls are paper thin, so you can hear your neighbors' conversations. No one was electrocuted but there were exposed, unsafe-looking wires held together with...
