Why Daniel Reed - Florida, USA or Michael McBride - Arenal, Costa Rica chose Aguacate
There are many day excursions and great outdoor adventure activities available in the nearby vicinity to be enjoyed if you decide to drag yourself away from the comfortable serene surrounding at the Lakeview Villa. It is one hour drive to La Fortuna which is a warmer tropical climate and a busy central tourist hub. Here you have the opportunity to visit the Arenal Volcano, climb Cerro Chato the dormant volcano, swim in the pool created by the spectacular La Fortuna waterfall, go rafting in the rivers, ride the zip lines or relax in the hot thermal volcanic springs of Tabacon or Baldi Springs. It’s nice to be close to the activities and yet be able to return to the Villa for an escape to the quiet and cooler private rainforest property as you rest and relax after your excursions. Traveling west around the lake you can venture to Hotel Tiwala where you can rent equipment for wind surfing which is reputed as one of the best in the world. Further on you can also visit Tilaran and Viento Fresco Falls on the drive to Monteverde which is the most famous Rainforests in Costa Rica. During certain seasons the Quetzal bird can be spotted with its iridescent green and red color and hummingbirds are always abundant in the cloud forest. If you do go to Monteverde be sure to visit Selvatoura butterfly gardens and the zip line adventure which is one of the longest in Costa Rica. This Canopy Tour has 15 cables and 18 platforms and you definitely zip through the canopy. There are also many beaches about 1.5 hours from the house going toward Liberia where you can enjoy the warm waters and surf.
What makes this House unique
This is one of the few rental properties that has direct Lake Arenal access with just a few minutes walk to the lakeshore from the house. On occasion the howler monkey troop will choose the trees or canopy near the house to have breakfast or dinner. There can be up to 20 of various sizes as they circulate through the 40 acre estate. Some days it is great just to relax and enjoy morning coffee on the veranda, spend hours in the rainforest following the extensive hiking trails and the flowing stream down to the lake, enjoying the waterfalls and swimming in the natural pools of spring water.
