About the neighborhood
Casa Cielo is a rural retreat about 8 Km north of La Fortuna which sits at the base of Arenal Volcano in the north central part of Costa Rica. This is approximately 90 miles northwest of the capital, San Jose. This area is filled with numerous activities for all interests. Horseback riding, canyoning, white water rafting, kayaking, Zip lining, hiking, bird watching, ATV tours, Hot springs, hot air ballooning, boat trips and fishing on lake Arenal, Butterfly gardens and more. If you want to do a lot of activities renting a car is best and a 4-wheel drive is advisable. If you do not want to rent a car, airport transfers and daily transportation can be arranged for a additional fee.
Getting around
A rental car is recommended. We do have a small grocery store located within walking distance and restaurant and bar next door at our neighbors location at Leaves and Lizards but driving is necessary if you want to explore and sample local cuisine in our small town of Monterrey or La Fortuna.
