Their story

The story starts with Juan Sostheim, who came from a history in the fast food industry before realizing there was a better way to make a living without sacrificing our planet. The team here at Rancho Margot truly cares about their guests and the environment. This is why so many activities are offered on-site, and they offer many immersion programs.
