My wife and I stayed at El Arbol in March 2012 to celebrate our 15-year anniversary. All/most of the reviews were very positive, so we felt safe about the choice. While our expectations were high, El Arbol exceeded them!
The house was nestled into the rainforest where we saw spider monkeys every morning! It was amazing. Marilyn and Jan were amazing hosts. Helped us with everything we asked. They have reliable and safe connections on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. We highly recommend taking a guided tour with their contact, Tino. It was a tour we'll remember forever.
Also, Marilyn highly recommended getting a massage in our rooms by Kelly. Wow! We were blown away by her talent.
Just an amazing trip overall.
