This is a place where you go for the jungle surroundings, the kindness of the folks who run it, and a very luxurious "camp out" in a comfortable tree house. You walk up steep steps to the platform among the tree tops and enter a small, beautiful room with a very comfortable bed. There is a tiny bathroom on one side and a tiny shower with luke warm water on the other, and a small loft above with an extra bed. Sometimes you can feel a slight sway as you listen to the numerous birds or a howling monkey. The office and the breakfast place (where you'll see awesome colorful birds as well as 6 different species of hummingbirds :-) is just a short walk on the jungle path. The folks at the office are very helpful in signing you up for adventures from La Fortuna. We went white water rafting, hiked the swinging bridges and the Arenol volcano, visited a wonderful hot springs, went river boating where we saw most of the monkeys, and had several fascinating guided tours. I wrote an entire diary of flora and fauna, but a few of my favorites were the monkeys, sloths, Montezuma & Mot-Mot birds, hummingbirds, and the poison dart "blue jean" frogs, along with the trees (and their entire ecosystems of vines and Bromiliads) and flowers. Be sure to spend at least a week there so you have time between adventures to wander the 70 acres of private jungle paths. It's about a 20 minute walk through life living jungle to reach a "secret" natural waterfall with 3 sizes of tiered, smooth stone lined "baths".... just magical! Our week at the Tree Houses Hotel was 100% wonderful!
