                  Directions to the Majestic Lodge - Take the Pan American Highway to San Ramon,Exit when you see the sign directing you to San Ramon and drive through the town of San Ramon following the signs of the volcano route. You will go through Bajo Rodriguez, La Tigra, Chachagua and then finally, La Fortuna. When you get to La Fortuna go through the town and pass Tabacon on your right, then go a few more miles(about 4 miles) until you see a tiny little police station on your right..you will take a left there onto a dirt road. Go 3 or 4 miles until you get to an intersection where you must take a left or a right. You will see a lot of signs directing you to different places in El Castillo. You will take a left. Go another few miles until you go over a small bridge and take your next right...at more signs. Keep going straight. You will pass the Sky Trek and continue to follow the road for a few miles, keep driving until you go over another small bridge. You will pass the school on your left. You will see signs directing you to the Majestic Lodge and Howlers Bar and Grill. Continue about 1 more km and you will pass our bar/grill, Howlers, on your left and then you will see the Majestic Lodge. Please try to get here before dark, as it is extremely difficult to navigate here at night if you don't know where you are going. My number is 8-703-1561 and the number at the Majestic is 2479-1085.

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About: Nancy and Dan Zintsmaster, an American couple from Key West, Florida, and the property managers of the Majestic, found El Castillo out of a desire to explore the areas off of the beaten track. “Upon arriving in El Castillo almost 10 years ago, and seeing the majestic Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal, we fell in love with this area. After traveling all over Costa Rica looking for a place to retire, we arrived here and immediately knew that this was it...our special spot on the planet! The people were gracious and kind and always very helpful and accomodating. There are around 240 people in El Castillo and the other tiny villages that make up this area we call home. With only a dozen or so Americans we have been able to fully immerse ourselves into the 'tico' culture. It has been a wonderful experience getting to know and love our neighbors who welcomed us into their village and their lives. This is a place we are proud to call home.”

                  Why La Fortuna:
                  Being located on the Lake with a perfect view of the Majestic Volcano is spectacular. It is breathtaking and a very peaceful place!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  This home is the best of both worlds. It is comfortable and elegant and it is in the middle of the rainforest! I love being away from it all, but still having the conveniences of wifi internet, satellite t.v., local restaurants, grocery stores and a gorgeous view as well. It is the perfect getaway!
