RANCHO REMO LODGE & GUSTO, Playa Hermosa

RANCHO REMO LODGE & GUSTO, Playa Hermosa

By Dagmar Reinhard

If you never had a meal at Gusto Italian Restaurant or slept at Rancho Remo Lodge, you are truly missing something. The owners Luca and Francesca and their dog Zoe welcome us in their place. As soon as we arrived, we get crazy about the view, the ocean, the beautiful Playa Hermosa Beach, and the famous Whale Tail.

They moved here five years ago from a little city in Italy called Viterbo. Almost three years ago, they opened their restaurant Gusto. Eating here means having a truly Italian experience in the jungle. Food is made from scratch to guarantee freshness and quality.

Luca and Francesca are almost obsessed with quality. They carefully select suppliers for imported stuff. They have a great selection of Italian wines. Pasta, bread, and sauces are handmade. Locally they buy fresh organic vegetables and fresh fish caught the same day.

The menu offers many choices of the best Italian cuisine dishes and some vegetarian and gluten-free options too. Definitely for the clients, “it seems to be in Italy.” When the diners acknowledge this, it is the best reward for the effort and work of the Gusto team.

Gusto y Rancho Remo Italian Food

Adjacent to the restaurant, are the well-equipped Cabinas Rancho Remo Lodge. You can enjoy spectacular views from the lovely rooms. There are five rooms, three ocean views with a king-size and two mountain views with a queen-size bed.

Each room has a balcony, and when you have an oceanview cabin, you can enjoy epic sunset and sunrise, or watch the toucans flying steps from you. The ocean sound is a miraculous lullaby to sleep.
On the mountainside, you will hear the ocean and jungle sounds that will relax you as never before. Waking up in this environment is priceless.

You will enjoy breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the ocean and surrounded by wildlife and nature. Breakfast has many choices, and everything is homemade.
If you plan visiting Uvita and surrounding this place is perfect for a romantic escape, sleeping here is amazing, and the restaurant is a must.

The restaurant is open every day from 12 to 8 pm.
Please make your reservation.
We observe all hygienic measures, following the protocols of the Ministry of Health.

The Strange Behavior of a Gang of Teenage Monkeys

The whole gang of teenage monkeys turned tail, ran for the fig tree, scuffled for a position, and ascended to the crown. Once safe from the mother raccoon, they seemed to lose interest in her, like a person trying to forget an embarrassing incident and pretending it never happened. The monkeys returned to their vagrant behavior, and mama continued about her business with her cubs at her side.
