General Information about Rancho La Botija


Historical Review

In 1985 we bought the 14-manzana-land located in Rivas, Pérez Zeledón. This land was used for agricultural and livestock raising activities. Later in 1995 we thought of a place in which families would enjoy of the archaeological wealthy and natural resources of Pérez Zeledón. That was why La Botija Ranch was created. We built 11 rooms 2 swimming pools and later 3 lakes of sportive tilapia fishing and a lake with boats to go rowing.The name comes from the fact that indigenous people who lived in this place left several graveyards in which they buried many clay artifacts that our grandparents used to call “botijas”.

In this archaeological place you can find the petroglyph rock designed by the indigenous people who lived in Pérez Zeledón. It was a ceremonial altar around 1300a.c. This rock is registered in the Museo Nacional as the petroglyph rock.
