“Comforts of home in the jungle”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Just got back from 2 weeks in Costa Rica. For the first week my wife and I stayed at Casa Gavilan. We couldn't have asked for a better place!! Its situated a 5 minute drive from the town of Nuevo Arenal in a private community. The house is completely out of view of neighboring houses and sits on the edge of the jungle. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast on the patio while watching toucans and various other birds, with the sound of howler monkeys in the distance. The pool and gardens are also beautiful. The house has 3 large bedrooms with full en-suite bathrooms so 3 couples could comfortably stay there. There are plenty of good restaurants around if you feel like eating out, and a kitchen with everything you need if you want to eat in. For the nights you want a break from reading, you can watch a movie from the extensive DVD collection. If you have any questions or problems, the manager Ed is helpful and readily available.
