We had a great stay at Casa Paraiso, the inside was very spacious, each bedroom has a full ensuite. Lots of space! The kitchen was well equipped.
The outdoors is fabulous with a great view of the lake and lots of birds, we saw many hummingbirds and a large variety of other birds.
Larry was very helpful throughout, answered all my questions quickly. Alexandra, the caretaker, was fabulous! Her family has a restaurant just down the road and we stopped in regularly with questions or to have her arrange a tour. The whole family was warm and helpful. She arranged for us to go to the Titiku Hot Springs and we had a great day there. There are also waterfalls near Tilaron which were well worth the trip!
We had a great meal at Alexandra's restaurant and bought some cheese from her that her family makes on their dairy farm, delicious!
The weather in Arenal when we were there was cool and rainy for the most part so be prepared to bring some warm clothes and rain gear.
