If you want to go to the Arenal/La Fortuna area of Costa Rica, this is the place! Slightly off the beaten trail and wayyyy less touristy (actually its the only hotel in the are so you know there aren't many tourists!), the Tree Houses Hotel is where it's at. It books up really quickly to make sure you get in touch with them quickly. Mark and Lucy manage the Tree Houses and are absolutely wonderful hosts. Mark was helpful in telling us where to rent our car from and helped us book a trip to a zip line adventure before we arrived. He also arranged for us to have massages and exfoliations on our tree house balcony! Talk about relaxation. Highly recommended!! Each morning you will awake to a fresh carafe of coffee and the birds will already be feasting on the plantains that were brought to your porch. Wait until you catch your first glimpse of a toucan or aracari from your porch. What a moment!! Then slowly make your way down to breakfast and enjoy fresh fruit and a delicious breakfast made by the ladies that work there.
Take advantage of the trails they have leading to a waterfall and the river out past the tree houses. Keep an eye out for monkeys and sloths, but don't worry if you miss them because Mark is great about showing you where they are if they come up to the tree house area.
When we return to Costa Rica you can bet we will be making this a stop on the journey! Thanks again for a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tree Houses Hotel is a bed and breakfast hotel conveniently located off the main road that runs through La Fortuna and around the Arenal Volcano. We are a short 25 minute drive to the high tourist area. People seek us out with that in mind, to be away from it all but close enough to enjoy all the fun adventure the La Fortuna, Arenal Volcano area has to offer.We have just 5 tree houses (each very private) on 8 acres and we are surrounded by a 70 acre wildlife refuge with a waterfall, pools to swim and a beautiful river. Each tree house features A/C, warm water showers, refrigerators and safes.There are few hotels like this in the world and none other in Costa Rica. There is something so very exciting about spending the night high in the forest canopy, wildlife all around you, safe and cozy in a tree house hotel in Costa Rica. ... more less
