My family - 2 adults and 4 young kids (7, 6, 4, 1) - are trying to nail down some accommodations in Arenal for 4 nights in April. We will have just come from a week in Guanacaste at a rental with a private pool and want some definite "jungle time".
We were looking into rentals - but there are actually not that many available around Fortuna. Then we were looking at hotels - but many will not accommodate 6 in a room. Ideally, we'd like to have a separate bedroom (or 2) so we're not all in 1 room.
Has anyone stayed in the Heliconia House at L&L? How is it since it is so close to the entrance?
We'll have our own vehicle and don't mind exploring for an outing each day - though I imagine the location might deter us from going as much otherwise. Any current times on the drive into Fortuna?
Any other cabins/rentals/bungalows....in the area that you would recommend??
