Rancho Wendy

Located just outside of Bonao, the Rancho Wendy is a small ranch nestled in the cool central mountains of the island. The facility specializes in providing a rustic tropical adventure lifestyle for an unusual Caribbean vacation. The mountain retreat is perfectly set so that it is away from the tourist traps along the coasts.

With some nice facilities, Rancho Wendy will be a nice choice for those picturing themselves relaxing by the pool. Swimmers who prefer salt to chlorine can take a dip in the sparkling waters of the Caribbean from this lodge, located right on the ocean.

Situated toward the western outskirts of Salvia, Rancho Wendy happily welcomes guests interested in staying in or near this town. From this accommodation, the center of Bonao is to the northeast.


Rancho Wendy offers guests the chance to stay for a night or a month, and has a variety of different ways to do it. For the ultra-adventurist, tents are available for rent. For longer-term stays or the slightly less-adventurous, dorm rooms are available, some larger than others and featuring a private bath. The largest rooms, for groups who want to see the wilderness without being a part of it, can sleep up to six persons and have air conditioning, a mini-fridge, television, and private bathroom.

Rancho Wendy has a total of just 16 rooms, which explains why we classify it as a moderately small property. Travelers who prefer a quiet setting over distracting details will fall in love with the intimate feeling of this location.
