  • Plant a tree for every guest

  • Help a local water conservation project

Just by staying with Rancho Cielo, you are supporting a very much needed local water conservation foundation. Rancho Cielo donates 1% of your stay at Rancho Cielo to The Nicoya Peninsula Waterkeepers. They exist to ensure drinkable, fishable, and swimmable waterways for everyone.

  • Protected forest

80% of Rancho Cielo is a protected forest that will always be that way. Their growing botanical garden is full of fruit trees for you to enjoy, rare bamboo from all over the world, as well as 1000s of endangered species of trees that Rancho Cielo is supporting to help thrive again.

  • Chemical free and bio-degradable

Everything on the farm is chemical free and bio-degradable, including all cleaning products, bathroom amenities, and insect repellent. This includes all pesticides and fertilizers too which are locally made.

  • Biofilter water treatment plant

The farm has created possibly the largest private rainwater collection system on the Peninsula. The system uses the roads throughout the property to collect the incredible amount of rainwater that falls in the rainy season into several enormous underground tanks. There is a highly sophisticated biofilter water treatment plant. This reduces grey water through a system of plants and rocks that can, in turn, be reused throughout the farm again.

  • Solar powered

All hot water, lights, fridges, and fans on the property are powered with the solar panels.

  • Smart eco design

The open living spaces of the property were designed to ensure maximum cross ventilation and use as much natural light as possible. Rancho Cielo reduced the need for air conditioning and artificial light. The air conditioning units Rancho Cielo does have are confined to the bedrooms and all bulbs are LED which last over a decade.

  • Educational programs

Rancho Cielo also runs educational programs for their staff. They are studying English with an onsite tutor and also computer skills which are all provided for by the company.
