The beautiful cottage retreat is the perfect home away from home! This property is set in the heart of the village, close to the local restaurants, the grocery store and lots of fun activities. 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 zip-lining 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 rappelling 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!
