The sunsets are spectacular! 
Be greeted by historic touches in the reception area in one of the oldest original hacienda buildings – more than a century old! A large, refreshing swimming pool filled with natural spring water is located on an outside patio. 
Views of the volcano and hacienda gardens enhance the 64 comfortable ranch-style rooms.

The two Suites are the most spacious and private, ideal for families and guests seeking more comfort. At night, relax listening to the amazing sounds of nature.
The family’s hacienda ranch covers 3,400 acres of pastureland, preserved dry tropical forest and the hotel grounds. They raise horses, cattle, pigs, chickens and turkeys, and grow a wide variety of fruit trees along with vegetables and herbs in their gardens. Most of the food you will enjoy in the hotel restaurant is produced on the ranch. 

Environmental Engagement

The prime location at the foot of the magnificent Rincon de la Vieja Volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For this reason, the longtime owners of the property have taken great care of the ranch land and surrounding forest for nearly half a century. They know that efforts in conservation can have far-reaching effects, both in their little corner of the world and beyond.
We are committed to sustainable tourism in Costa Rica, and are proud that Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin holds the third level of the strict Certification for Sustainable Tourism (CST) program by the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT).
Respecting the surroundings means they strive to ensure that the environment and wildlife surrounding Hacienda Guachipelin are preserved, and that they operate the hotel and ranch as eco-friendly as possible.
