I was delighted with my stay at Arenal Green. German and his family are very welcoming and helpful. German's daughter Monica was so helpful in giving me ideas for things to do in the area. The room was spotlessly clean, with a very comfortable bed (not hard as a rock, like many places I have stayed.) It is definitely off the beaten path, so if you are looking to be in the action, stay in town. This place is all about peace and quiet with great views and a lot of nice wildlife. In the morning, I saw many different types of birds around my cabin and also an agouti!
The Fortuna Waterfall is within walking distance, as is the town of La Fortuna, but you have to enjoy walking(I do.) On my early morning walk to the waterfall (from the hotel) I saw a couple of agoutis, 2 toucans, several lizards, and a turkey!!
The waterfall was amazing and I saw even more wildlife, including 3 howler monkeys!!! On the walk back to Arenal Green, a nice Tico gave me a ride since it was starting to get pretty hot out in the late morning. He didn't ask for anything, but I gave him a dollar anyway, because i really appreciated the ride!!!
When I got back to the hotel, I enjoyed an amazing 'typical' breakfast and some great coffee and fresh juice. I can't say anything but good things about this place. It was everything I wanted and I will return!!
