About this listing
Ideal for groups up to 22 people or couples, this is an adventurous and also social experience of living virtually in the jungle. Relax on the balcony overlooking the Arenal Volcano and the rain-forest. Observe up to 300 species of birds and other wildlife. Private and exclusive yet easy access to La Fortuna in 12 minutes, an excellent location.
We offer local authentic family style food by prior arrangement. We can organize transport, laundry and a range of interesting tours and activities, better discussed here as there are many other options than what you see on the internet.
The common areas, including the kitchen are shared when other guests are on the premises.
La Fortuna de San Carlos is at the center of an array of geological wonders. The nearby Arenal is Costa Rica's most active volcano, routinely bursting with lava and ash, and the Catarata de La Fortuna is a waterfall pouring from a seventy-meter cliff. The Tabacon Hot Springs are a relaxing intermission in the midst of the various spectacles, and the Leaves and Lizards Arenal Volcano Cabin Retreat is a blissful end to any day's excursion.
It is advisable to bring a torch for navigating the paths after dark and a map of the local area for navigation.
There are no rules as such, however, if guests have not chosen a food option during their stay, the kitchen may be unoccupied and it is the responsibility of the guests who use the kitchen to do their best to keep it clean and make their own coffee etc. There are filters and coffee around the coffee makers, if there is no coffee or tea, please kindly inform one of the staff.
The fridge is for shared use and we request the same observation as the rest of the kitchen in order to maintain cleanliness.
About the Host, Jonathan
I left England when was 18 and hitch-hiked through Europe,Africa to India overland which was a life forming experience,. I left with about $100 and returned 2 yrs later ..I had little money I stayed with local people ,or hostels or slept rough whatever I needed to do. Later as a professional investment consultant I have lived in Hotels throughout Latin America for nearly 20 years. I can tell you the best way to travel is not always in Hotels ...experience living and sharing with the local way of life ,with real people it is a far richer more rewarding experience. I believe in the concept of integrated tourism this is what we offer it is a much better way to travel ...
