Go up the hill from Montezuma, on the Delicias road, which is paved at the beginning steep parts, and starts at Hotel Amor de Mar and the Montezuma Falls parking lot.

You’ll pass the Delicias school on the right, then 300 meters later, on the right are the three gates of Rancho Delicioso.

Google Map of Rancho Delicioso Location
As of November 2016, this map seems to be pretty up to date. I would guess the photo was taken in March of 2016. It’s dry season so all the grass is brown. The River Palace structure is there, under construction, and you can see all our greenhouses and the volunteer house.
As of Nov, 2016, the Bing map below seems to be around 4 years old, so it doesn’t show very much of what we have here now unfortunately. Hopefully they’ll update it soon.
