Usually, a picture is better than words, but no picture can represent the colors, smells and sounds of the forest sorrounding the charming wooden cabins of Arenal Oasis ecolodge. Minutes from La fortuna, but hidden in the forest, the beautiful cabins are an excellent base for traveling in the Arenal area. The place is run by a very friendly family that wilingly adviced us about Arenal volcano, the area and everything we needed in town. Breakfast is served in an open garden, where the owners set fruits that attract so many kinds of colorful birds. Don't miss the night walk! We did it with the lodge's experienced guid who easily tracked many kinds of frogs, snakes, insects etc. and shared his wide knowledge with us.
