Hacienda Mil Bellezas is a 100-acre (40ha) tropical nature preserve and lodge with horses, chickens, dogs, and cats. We are located in the jungle northeast of Quepos. We aquired the property in 2016 and have been working on it continuously with the goal to establish a little farm with happy animals and plants. 20 years ago the farm was used for cattle and many trees cut. Since then the forest was allowed to regrow. However, cattle is detrimental to the soil in a humid tropical environment in the mountains. We have been working hard and successful to reestablish some of the pasture to provide grass for our horses.

There are beautiful waterfalls, swimming ponds, fruit trees, and wildlife on our property. Enjoy over 5km of hiking trails through our jungle and enjoy the refreshing river ponds surrounded by pure nature! The ponds are only a 15min walk away from the guesthouse. Or participate in our Horseback Riding tours to explore the property!

We are virtually located in the Rainforest. At night you will only hear the sound of the jungle and be able to admire the stars – it is almost magical! During the day you can watch for a variety of wildlife. Most frequently we see: squirrel monkeys, small and large lizards, iguanas, the blue morpho butterfly and plenty of birds, especially the chestnut mandible toucan.

Hacienda Mil Bellezas is only 20 minutes away from Quepos and 30 minutes from famous Manuel Antonio National Park (http://www.manuelantoniopark.com) with its park and beautiful beaches!
