La Fortuna house description

Picture yourself in this private oasis, perched on a lush green hillside overlooking lake Arenal and the Arenal volcano!

This modern style home is a wonderful complement to the gorgeous tropical setting. Set in the tiny village of El Castillo, this home features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths plus a beautiful living room/dining room/kitchen area off of a wrap around terrace. The three bedrooms are located on the upper level of the home. The master bedroom has a full bathroom with a shower. The other two bedrooms have a bathroom centrally located next to the bedrooms for your convenience and the third bathroom is located on the lower level of the house next to the living room and kitchen. The washer and dryer are located on the lower level in a spacious laundry room. High quality, designer furnishings have been used to create this luxurious home. They have been carefully selected to reflect the contemporary style, yet a casual, comfortable atmosphere has been created.


The village of El Castillo is tucked in the rainforest in the mountains on lake Arenal. Home to about 240 'ticos' and about 12 americans, this village has lots to offer! If it is action and adventure you are looking for try ziplining through the rainforest at Sky Trek Adventures or go exploring on horseback to one of the three waterfalls and take a swim. Kayaking is always fun and what a way to catch some sun and some fish!! Go rapelling or canyoning at Rancho Margot or white water rafting for even more adventure. You can go to The Butterfly Conservatory or The Snake Zoo all right here in Castillo! When it is time to unwind after a long day of adventure, nothing will soothe your bones like a soak in the free Hot Springs! This village may be small, but can pack a huge vacation!!

We will be happy to book any of these local attractions at no charge to you:

* Hanging Bridges
* Zip Lines
* Hot Springs
* ATV and other rentals
* Butterfly Conservatory
* Eco-Snake Zoo
* Horseback Riding
* Volcano Hikes
* Rafting
* Canyoning and Rappelling
* Bird Watching
* Swimming
* Much more

This home away from home is a true gem!
