Property description

Comfortable, well equipped cabins, perched on hills, offer a tree house feeling and have spectacular, panoramic views of the Arenal Volcano and surrounding mountains. All lodging options have a similar view of impressive Arenal. Private Deluxe cabins are crafted from nine types of tropical hardwoods, harvested using environmentally responsible methods. They feature iPod docking stereo systems, orthopedic beds with quality linen, coffee makers, mini-fridge, microwaves, rocking chairs, hammocks, ceiling fans, games, robes, reference books, spacious porches and private bathrooms with hot showers.

In order to better enjoy the sounds of nature; lodging options do not have phones, television or air conditioning. They are situated to catch the breeze. They are a 5 -8 minute walk from the Lava Lizard Restaurant where guests are welcome to use the phone for local calls and free high speed WiFi.

Lodging options are beautifully landscaped, teeming with birds, butterflies and other wildlife. In keeping with our retreat atmosphere, we ask for a 3 night minimum stay. Thanks for your understanding.

Car: Recommended

Stay with Erick, Nayu and their 2 daughters on their 130 acre dairy farm, Finca Tuete. It is in a beautiful location with rolling hills, rainforest, pasture land, rivers and creeks. It is 30 minutes from the attractions in the La Fortuna area.

Families and groups interested in a cultural immersion experience on a Costa Rican dairy farm should consider this unique offering. It is a peaceful location with a 360° wrap-around porch with majestic views of Lake Nicaragua, the Northern Plains and the top 1/3 of Volcano Arenal. There are local, hidden jewels to be discovered. Rainforest trails, waterfalls-where main stream tourism does not tread!

The newly built Hacienda guest house has 4 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms. There is separate, simple kitchen area with stove, refrigerator and eating bar area for those people that want to do their own cooking.

A typical day at Finca Tuete would include helping to milk 70 cows, making farmer’s cheese, caring for sheep, rabbits, baby calves, chickens and fishing for tilapia in their pond. The Hacienda would also serve as a home base for excursions to the tourist center of La Fortuna area. Trips to local attractions in La Fortuna/Arenal can be arranged. Farm chores are optional.

Meals: (almost all the food is produced on the farm)

Individual Meals: Breakfast (B) included, Lunch (L) $8, Dinner (D) $17
