Somewhere a bit different in Aso

The El Patio Ranch is perched high on the caldera rim with great views towards the active volcanoes, some distance away. We didn't participate in the horse activities that take place at the ranch, preferring to explore the geopark. The Ranch was a great place to return in the evening.

Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful, even providing us with a take-away breakfast and coffee, when we had to leave for an early train connection.

Cons: The restaurant wasn't open during our stay, which was a pity but nearby Aso has many places to eat so it didn't matter.

Location: Recommend exploring the Geopark in this area, which covers the ancient and still active volcanism that has formed the spectacular caldera.

Nice and quiet

It's a ranch and it's quiet during our stay. Definitely you will need to have a car tho drive here. The owner speaks pretty good English and very helpful too.
