We started our trip in Arenal, staying at La Mansion Inn. What a way to begin a terrific vacation! The setting is spectacular and our cottage was wonderful. We ate all of our dinners at the restaurant, and the food was fabulous - the best we had in Costa Rica. The owner was friendly and so helpful -- he arranged for our zip lining tour and a most special private tour at the Selva Leona rainforest -- the highlight of our vacation. This tour can only be arranged through La Mansion, and includes a boat ride, jeep tour, horseback ride and a rainforest hike. What an amazing day that was. We loved everything about our stay at La Mansion and recommend it completely.
