Response from John:

Hi Cheyenne
Thank you for your comments. We're sorry about the power outage but unfortunately, things like that are beyond our control. Anyone who travels in Latin America should expect that infrastructures are not as robust as in North America, especially in more remote areas where power and water lines run many miles through the jungle. Your suggestion about providing instructions for power outages is a good one and we will adopt it. I'm a little surprised at your comment regarding driving instructions because as you can see from other reviews, many people comment on how clear they are. We also provided GPS coordinates. For those considering visiting us, we cater to those looking for an authentic Tico experience in one of the most beautiful (but remote) parts of the country.

  • La Gavilana Herbs & Art

    Hannah Tomas create great works of art both with Tomas tinctures and hot sauces and with Hannahs paintings.
    El Castillo Alajuela
  • Butterfly Conservatory

    Simply beautiful and if you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of a howler monkey in the trees overhead.
    Millon - El Castillo El Castillo Alajuela
  • Arenal Observatory Lodge

    Great hiking trails, good food at the restaurant, and the closest view of the volcano.
    La Fortuna Alajuela
  • Los Lagos Hotel

    Great place for an expensive day at the hot springs. There are a number of them along the road from La Fortuna to El Castillo, but this is our favorite.
