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 might be the ideal option for vacationers picturing themselves hanging out poolside. Vacationers who enjoy swimming, but prefer the ocean to the pool, can head into the sparkling Caribbean waters from this lodge, located right along the coast.

Set in the western part of Salvia, Rancho Wendy happily welcomes customers who want to stay in this town or a nearby area. In case you're wondering, 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 grand total of 16 units, so it's no mystery that we classify it as a moderately small property. Visitors who want to escape noisy crowds will fall in love with the sheltered setting at these accommodations. This lodge has earned a rating of 1 stars, based on several factors, including amenities, quality, and service.
