I am a Ceramic artist and teach the art full time at Santa Monica College.

Brian Jensen purchased this lodge in 1991

Cabo Matapalo was by far the most naturally wild and perfect tropical beach location in ALL of Costa Rica. The sheer beauty of this magical area sold me.

Increased health and regeneration with healthy organic fruit and vegetables from our gardens and clean fresh fish from the ocean. Mosquitos are nearly non-existent because of the property's proximity to the beach and ocean breezes.

Franklyn,

Just wanted to follow up with you concerning our three-day stay at Kapu Ranch.

We were in Costa Rica for a total of ten days, but we had the best and most fulfilling three days of our trip while staying at Kapu Ranch.

John was extremely friendly and helpful, and Rene was the best chef our group could possibly have asked for! We can't thank you all enough for making our stay there truly pleasurable and unforgettable.

Please pass our thanks on to John, as we did not have the opportunity to thank him personally on our last day there. He was quick to answer all our questions, and took special care to make sure we were all comfortable and happy.

We look forward to returning to Kapu Ranch in the near future!

Thanks again!
