We had a fantastic 3 nights with Mark and Lucy at the Tree Houses they made us feel completely at home from the moment we arrived. They were excellent hosts and a mine of useful information. It felt more like visiting friends than staying in a hotel. The pre-visit communication was also really good - quick responses to questions via email and then another email just before we left the UK so we knew they were expecting us. The setting of the tree houses is idyllic - just off the main road but you feel like you are in the middle of the rain forest. The wildlife and was abundant. The tree house we stayed in had a tree growing through the middle of it which gave it even more character. We had a lot of rain dring the time we stayed and Mark and Lucy very kindly offered to dry out our clothes in their dryer before we left. We tried to see the arenal volcano but the cloud was too low for the 3 days we were there but would recommend visiting the Arenal Observatory Lodge http://www.arenalobservatorylodge.com/EN/ - the trip to it is an experience in itself! Make sure you have a 4 x 4! We also visited the butterfly farm and the road is even more extreme but it was worth it! We also went to the Ecotermales thermal springs http://www.northerncostarica.com/eco-termales-hot-springs.html which were wonderful! Breakfasts at the treehouses were varied and delicious fresh fruit, local coffee and juice every morning and then a different local speciality we even had gallo pinto one morning. It was cerainly a really great start to our 3 week trip around Costa Rica. We would definately go again and plan to keep in touch with Mark and Lucy.
