We stayed over Christmas time and found the "cabina" or cabin/bunky, very comfortable and the owners easy going. The place was clean and any worries about safety were soon forgotten once we walked down to the main strip, through the friendly streets. This is a place that is close to the down town tourist places and excellent local food. Get a driver to take you where you want to go or ask Greg to call a cab. Cheap travel to the volcano and some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see. We walked, scootered, zip-lined, swam, hiked, rode horses, rapelled down waterfalls and thoroughly enjoyed this area of Costa Rica. The church on Christmas day was amazing and friendly all around. My two teen age boys loved the freedom of the place, the adventures and the food. We will come back again some day soon.... more
The perfect retreat! Imagine relaxing in the Jacuzzi with the Arenal Volcano for a backdrop!
