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.
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.
Interaction with Guests
Our staff will be always available to help you and to make this an unforgettable experience.
The location of the hotel is located in the far west of the lake. It located on a hill overlooking the lake and the volcano, surrounded by the forest through which flows a river. This beautiful setting is home to many animals. With the help of the staff you can coordinate a massage, a yoga class, a sauna and many other activities that will make your stay unforgettable.
The environment is perfect for families with children who find their way and enjoy themselves with toys and with a slide and swing
The bus stop is 300 meters to the hotel entrance, on the road that surrounds the lake.
I am co-owner of Mystica Lodge & Retreats along with Barbara Moglia, my business partner. We came to Costa Rica from Torino, Italy many years ago, and have put much love and energy into creating Mystica. The Mystica family is committed to sharing the beauty of Costa Rica and Mystica with those who come to stay with us. We have a deep respect for Nature and Peace, and we love the Pura Vida way of living.
