Rick, our host is a charming, thoughtful host who cares that you have great time. The pool area with adjacent dining room and lounge was paradise for the children and we enjoyed the view. We enjoyed going to the fish market for the catch of...More

For my wife and I, Rancho Armadillo provided all we were looking for:
-Quiet and isolation
-Easy access to the Playa (when needed)

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.
