Why the Owner Chose Guatuso, Costa Rica:
It was an early retirement for me. I enjoy the climate and the natural beauty of Costa Rica. The simplicity of the life here known as 'Pura Vida'. But you will see that its a small community of many friendly Ex-Pats who have decided to spend there lives here is beautiful Costa Rica.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Nature and clean air and a perfect climate. Wildlife abounds! We are next to the largest lake in Costa Rica. Close to active Volcano Arenal and many adventures such as hot springs, Canopy Zip Lines, Waterfalls and many more activities related to this beautiful lake.
