Swiss breakfast in the Jungle

Rosti; hash browns cooked with onions and topped with fried eggs is one of my favorite breakfasts! Whether I enjoy it in my home or the Alps, I didn't expect this in the Lake Arenal Region. At home, I like it with a little ketchup & Tabasco, but I'd never insult the chef when he/she is doing the... read more

Toy train ride over old bridges past a wonderful chapel and cows in pasture, to the secret 'rotating' hotel (check out the invisible air blower here) on the hill with a small museum and the best panoramic view of the lake and Arenal volcano while having rich strawberry ice cream made the day special like a dream. The stay was... More

Get the fondue (for two people minimum). Their breakfast is yummy too, and their staff is really friendly as well.

A group of 8 traveled to the "Swiss Village of Los Heroes" outside of Nuevo Arenal Costa Rica. We had made reservations two days prior. We wanted to experience the little train ride to the revolving restaurant which overlooks beautiful Lake Arenal. The narrow guage train chug chuged up the hills in little wooden observation cars, and it was cute... More

We loved the fresh baked bread with jam and home produced butter! The cocoa was simply over the top good. Lovely fresh mountain air, not too hot nor cool. Saw two toucans after breakfast flying from one tree to the next. This truly was the best breakfast on our trip and came graitis with the room. The train ride is... More

We had our wedding anniversary here. Invited thirty of our closest friends to join us for a train ride. Selena emailed back and forth promptly as we were making arrangements. All were pleased with the dinner, which was designed on this occasion to cater to local taste. Some friends arrived after the train left the station, and were glad the... More

My husband and I stopped to see the grounds and train as we have traveled thru Switzerland several years ago. This is defintely a little bit of Switzerland in Costa Rica. It was really interesting to see the Hotel, apartments and Chapel. The Chapel was especially pretty with beautiful paintings inside. The Hotel has a restaurant but we decided to... More
