You may fly in to either San Jose airport or in to Liberia airport . Liberia is the closest airport. I recommend renting a car because there is so much to do and to see in this area. I also have to excellent drivers who pick up guests at either airport and will also take you on tours around the lake area.
There are great restaurants very near by within 5 minutes to 25 minutes away. Giving you a choice of local typical Costa Rican food and really well done international and gourmet haute cuisine at several different places.

Interaction with guests
I tend to leave my guests their privacy after introducing them to how everything and the internet work.
I also help guests plan their adventures and arrange guides and transportation to tours when desired.
Very scenic neighborhood with views of lake Arenal , Arenal Volcano to the East and Tonorio, Miravias and Rincon de la Vieja Volcanoes to the North West. Great Hike from the front door to see all these Volcanoes. Stunning views. Very Warm friendly people.
Best to rent a car to come to this area. But there are very good taxi services and tour drivers as well.
