surf ranch hotel & resort

The Surf Ranch is not just a hotel.  It is a childhood dream, come to life.  Situated along side the San Juan river on the jungles edge, it is an oasis dreamland.  As you lay poolside or at the swim up bar enjoying the selection of cocktails, you may see and hear the howler monkeys as they frolic across the jungle canopy.  You can spend the days soaking up rays, practicing yoga and receiving a massage, or you can go the adventurous route and take part in the many activities.  Spend the day practicing on the rock climbing wall, sliding down the water slide, cooling off in the splash pad water park, skateboarding at the on site skate park, playing volleyball, or lounging poolside. If you want to simply relax or adventure, the Surf Ranch has it all.  Listed below are all the features at the resort.
