On the shores of Lake Arenal and the valley of the Cano Negro river, surrounded by the Children´s Eternal Rain Forest and the Arenal Forest Reserve you will find our little piece of paradise that we call Rancho Margot. Just 15 km from the Monteverde Biological Reserve, Rancho Margot has its own unique micro-climate. A steady gentle breeze, flowing mountain rivers, Lake Arenal and the Arenal volcano contribute to maintaining a comfortable temperature and friendly environment year round.
Rancho Margot is owned by the Sostheim family who upon visiting Costa Rica fell in love with Lake Arenal and its surrounding area. As luck would have it, they were able to purchase approximately 400 acres on the shores of the lake with beautiful volcano views, primary rainforest, eleven natural springs and the largest river feeding Lake Arenal flowing through the property. Having traveled all over the world and witnessed the devastation that had occurred in other “paradises”, the family decided to develop Rancho Margot as a teaching community based on sustainable rural tourism and conservation.
The bungalows are equipped to receive couples or families of up to 4 people. Each bungalow has its own terrace on which you may enjoy the great view, relax on your hammock and read a book.

Built with river rocks and filled with pure crystalline water from the springs the pools are the perfect spot to relax on a hot day. This natural setting combined with great views of the primary forest, the lake and the Caño Negro River will cast a spell on you.
The bar is the center of the Ranch’s evening life. The Salsa, wine and rum nights will delight your senses.
