About the neighborhood
Many of our guest use Living Forest as a base and do day trips from here. We recommend you have a rental car. Popular day trips are Arenal Volcano (hot springs, zip lining, hanging bridges etc), Rio Celeste in Tenerio National park, Monteverde, waterfall hikes, Ticowind for kite and windsurfing etc.

This is peaceful Costarican country side, little bit away from the most touristy parts. You can relax and enjoy your time in the nature. We have a lot of wildlife right here by our jungle river.
Getting around
If you have a car it is easy to explore the area and get to many types of activities. Without a car you would mainly relax here. There are some local buses, but the schedule is limited.
We are happy to give you our car rental connection with extra discount for our guests. Let us know if you are interested.
