Plant A Tree For Every Guest
We believe that one can live luxuriously and sustainably and our clients leave Rancho Cielo feeling rejuvinated and so does mother nature as we plant a tree for each booknig as well as donate 1% of their stay to a local water project, The Nicoya Peninsula Waterkeeper.
We also run educational programmes for our staff. They are studying English with an onsite tutor and also computer skills which are all provided for by the company.
80% of Rancho Cielo is protected forest that will always be that way. Our growing botanical garden is full of fruit trees for you to enjoy, rare bamboo from all over the world as well as 1000’s of endangered species of trees that we are working 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.
Bio Filter 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 rain water that falls in the rainy season into several enormous underground tanks.
There is a highly sophisticated bio filter water treatment plant. This reduces grey water through a system of plants and rocks that can in turn, be reused throughout the farm again.
All hot water, lights, fridges and fans on the property are powered with the solar panels.
The open living space of the property was designed to ensure maximum cross ventilation and use as much natural light as possible. We reduced the need for air conditioning and artificial light. The AC units we do have are confined to the bedrooms and all are bulbs are LED which last 25 years
90% of staff are local and live within a 1 km radius and we thoroughly split and recycle garbage.
