Rancho DiAndrew

Top choice outdoors in Uvita

Fun tour operator specializing in surf retreats and nature tours, the most popular of which involves navigating a hidden gorge, plunging off a cliff and feasting on BBQ by the river. The rancho is perched in a patch of jungle near the town of San Josecito, and features tented cabins (summer only; single/double per night from US$75/85). Sweet views.

The property has regular visits from sloths, howler monkeys, toucans and anteaters.
