Rancho Margot is a family enterprise focused on sustainable business operation and living. With a staff of 35 people, an average of 8 to 10 rotating volunteers and upwards of 10,000 annual visitors, Rancho Margot is a remote and dynamic eco-lodge.
We are located in a lush lakeside valley between rain and cloud forests in a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Biosphere Reserve. In addition to providing a peaceful place that facilitates connection with nature, Rancho Margot strives to inspire each visitor to relax, enjoy and explore ways in which they can incorporate the concept of sustainability into their own lives.
For many people, a Guided Tour of Rancho Margot is an awakening experience. Our website allows you to read about our reforestation efforts, creative recycling, chemical-free gardening and farming, protection of animals, low carbon impact, sustainability and green entrepreneurial initiatives. But no written word can compare to experiencing the complex, dynamic ecosystem of the Ranch with your own sensibilities.
