“Rancho Tranquilo is a backpackers hostel dedicated to peace, tranquility, good times, nutritious vegetarian cuisine, and affordability for the budget traveler”.


Rancho Tranquilo is created by Tina Morris from San Francisco in the USA, about 9 years ago she arrived as first Gringo in Jiquilillo with only her backpack and a mind full of ideas how paradise should look like. Tina opened the doors 7,5 years ago and by the way she runned the place it  is a ho(s)tel where everybody feels at home and didn’t leave without her famous hugg’s.
