Guestbook comments from the owner
We had some of the best surfing and fishing during our stay at Rancho Picaso. In one trip we caught a Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Rooster Fish, and Red Snapper for cooking . The next day we were lucky enough to find a school of dolphin feeding on yellowfin tuna so we circled them and pulled in several which we cut up and had right on the boat with wasabi and ginger. The captains know the waters and take you where you will catch fish! The surf was great and the owners local knowledge helped us read the tides and find waves every day when we weren't fishing. After a busy day it was nice to just chill in the hammocks on the beach and watch the sunsets. Being able to have a bonfire on the beach at night with friends under the incredible star filled sky was also a perk, because you are on 2.5 acres of private property.The locals are friendly and you feel very safe at this 3 bedroom home on the Osa Peninsula, unlike may of my surf trips to other areas in the past!
