The lodge is located next to the lake, in Castillo village. Clean and cozy. Simple but nutritious breakfast. Try the Soda Amigos restaurant next to the bridge. Amazing local food! Breathtaking views. I’d be back again!

Yes. They have many rooms with a direct view but the Chalets are the best ones...floor to ceiling windows directly facing the volcano. You must get the Chalets.
