    Things to Do
    Additional Location Information
    Encantada Guest House is located in the northern zone of Costa Rica, near the rustic village of El Castillo de La Fortuna, Lake Arenal and The Arenal Volcano National Park

    The area is rich in beauty and panoramic views of both Lake Arenal and the majestic Arenal volcano. The road to El Castillo, is maintained but often very rough and natural. The whole area outside La Fortuna is pastoral and rural, a sense of peace prevails.

    There are several tourist attractions and activities located within the area: zip lines, hot springs, lava hikes, horseback riding, river rafting, Sky Tram canopy tours,The Butterfly Conservatory, The Eco-Zoo (serpentarium) and Rancho Margot (a self sustaining eco ranch).

    An SUV vehicle is recommended for the Arenal and Monteverde area, Be advised there are off road conditions, such as Gravel or Dirt.

The house is really nicely located - beautiful volcano view, very close to the little village of El Castillo (which has a lot to do!), close to the entrance to the National Park/hot springs/village of La Fortuna.
