About this listing
Mystica is a beautiful lodge and retreat centre right over-looking Arenal lake and volcano. We have a main building with 6 private rooms (each with their own bathroom) perfect for single, double, or triple occupancy, a private villa (with queen bed,bathroom, kitchenette, fireplace, terrace, and pull-out sofa),and a 2-bedroom house (two rooms each with their own queen bed, a large open kitchen, living room, fireplace, outdoor shower, hot tub, two bathrooms, and terraces).
We are also proud of our newest addition to the accommodations: a jungle cabin right overlooking the forest and river, with an amazing view and a unique sensation of being immersed in nature. The jungle cabin has a queen bed, a private bathroom, a semi-outdoor shower, and a large terrace.
Guests can enjoy the lovely environment at Mystica, practicing yoga in our magical sanctuary by the river, being refreshed in our
dipping pool made of river stones with a waterfall, receiving a relaxing massage or Reiki session in our healing tree-house, and of course, savoring the delicious food offered in Mystica's restaurant. We specialize in authentic Italian cuisine, and guests love our wood-burning oven pizzas, homemade pastas, fresh soups and salads, and our delectable desserts (including the famous chocolate Tortino and handmade sorbets such as lemon and mango/passion fruit).
Many of our clients like to make Mystica their home-base while they take day trips to the volcanic hot springs, adventure in the canopy tours, and hike to amazing waterfalls.
It is best to come to Mystica with a car so that you can have the freedom to get around to the various adventures. There are also local buses and guides you can hire if you like for alternate transportation.
The owners and staff are happy to meet you and to help you enjoy your stay with us - we hope that your time at Mystica enriches your vacation in Costa Rica and that the wonderful memories you make here stay with you for always.
