Traditional ranchos consist of open-sided structures with a thatched roof crafted from palm leaves or other indigenous materials. In Costa Rica, as in other tropical regions, ranchos bear cultural significance and form an integral part of local lifestyle. Constructing ranchos often involves utilizing locally sourced materials and traditional building techniques.
The Chorotega indigenous groups in Costa Rica have traditionally used them as versatile spaces, often serving as shelters, meeting places, or communal gathering areas. These structures hold cultural and symbolic meaning, tied to the environment, community life, and cultural traditions. The practice of building them reflects a connection to the region’s cultural heritage and reliance on sustainable practices passed down through generations and still present in Nosara.
