Our family really enjoyed El Árbol! We were looking for a unique experience and staying in this jungle house provided that.
The hosts were very helpful and communicated so well. Would highly recommend!

Casa del Arbol, superb experience in the middle of the rainforest. I spent 6 nights with my husband and 2 kids and was a lovely opportunity to be the 4 of us surrounded by nature. We woke up with the sound of the monkeys and crickets. Even if it rained for 3 days, our time there was fantastic! Marilyn and her kids couldn't have been more wonderful and helpful. We'd love to come back next year!!

Room tip: Both bungalows are spectacular

Our vacation staying at El Arbol was truly magical. Jan & Marjolein were such responsive and welcoming hosts from my first questions on line to when we sadly had to leave. They knew everyone locally and recommended the best restaurants and places to go and hired us the greatest boat captain to go snorkeling and dolphin watching. The house we stayed in was clean,comfortable and well provisioned and the jacuzzi tub was great after hiking all day.

Having the jungle surrounding us was an amazing experience.. Watching the birds and spider monkeys swing through the trees was so entertaining and such a nice break from the way we live in the States. Away from it all but very close to everything the Puerto Viejo area has to offer. Also, El Arbol is at the bottom of a huge hill with old stone steps leading up as it was the old route to walk to Panama. So cool and a great workout as well.. We nicknamed it the butt hill! We would highly recommend El Arbol to anyone who wants to get away and just chill by the beautiful Caribbean beaches.

I can honestly say that our stay at "El Arbol" was a weekend spent in paradise.
From the moment that we arrived, Marjorie and Jan hosted us to our lovely house. They were very attentive and friendly.
The house itself is intimate and feels like home, while being at the jungle at the same time. The view to the nature is stunning and the place very peaceful.
Also the house is very safe, clean, well maintained and all facilities works in great condition.
The kitchen was fully equiped with everything we needed! The beds were excellent and very confortable. We didn't feel that we needed anything else, we felt just great!
We loved our stay so much and for sure will be on the top of our list for future visits to Caribe Sur Costa Rica.
We know that our friends and family will love it as much as we do, so we will make good recommendations for all!
Thank You Marjorie and Jan for doing a Great Work; El Arbol is Excellent for people who are looking for peace and a beautiful place to relax.

In the middle of the Jungle but still so close to the beach. I absolutely love all the jungle sounds and the surroundings. Extremely relaxing and the design of the lodges are really cool. I am certainly coming again soon.

Room tip: Each room is the same.
