The howler monkeys are scarier than they look, trails are long and the air is fresh. Many beautiful waterfalls throughout. The view of the volcanoes can be seen from the top of the random green ladder at the beginning of the trails.

Thank you very much for your comment. Hope you had a nice trip back home. Please don't forget to visit Arenal Lodge in your next trip to Costa Rica. Best regard.

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.
