Please Note:

1. A 2x4 or 4x4 SUV or other High Clearance Vehicle is Strongly Recommended in the Arenal Area. The road to El Castillo is paved but rough road conditions may exist and the little cow path to Encantada, that we lovingly call a road, is rustic but easily passable.

    Absolutely stunning guesthouse

    An adorable home fully appointed with everything you might need to make yourself at home, including a hammock and a very comfortable bed. Hosts Marty and Nita were so helpful, sharing insights about nearby little town of El Castillo and helping us feel at home in the town as well as the guesthouse. We particularly enjoyed the new community center, Howlers Bar and Grill, and La Ventanita Cafe. We enjoyed the sky tram, sky walk that included two waterfalls and two very long very high suspension bridges! My kids will be proud I crossed those. Lots of memories at this lovely property...
