3 nights at this wonderful place were a real highlight of our Costa Rica holiday. At 5:30 the sound outside just rose to a crescendo as ciccada and frogs got into gear..magical. Gorgeous vegetation and wildlife all around.You are out of La Fortuna so nothing to spoil your enjoyment of the natural world. We loved the wooden hut with its...

What a wonderful opportunity to get away from the noise of the surrounding tourist attractions in the Arenal/La Fortuna area. The Arenal Oasis guest huts are clean and quiet, surrounded by lush secondary forest. The sanctuary is home to numerous birds, bugs, frogs and lizards, so there is no end of interesting wildlife and jungle sounds. Staff is friendly and...

I booked this paradise through a travel agency and let me say it was the perfect choice for me. The setting in the jungle was spectacular with the many different species of birds and wildlife that I would hear at night and wake up to. I absolutely loved the staff they were extremely helpful and informative with my many, many...

We went on a night safari here with our 2 boys aged 9 and 6. It starts around 5.45 and lasts about 2 hours . Our guide was really friendly and knowledgable and made the whole trip really interesting as well as safe. My eldest is really keen on frogs and we saw lots and the boys were really happy...

If you're a wildlife lover and especially a bird watcher, this place will enchant you. The ecolodges are set amongst a thick lush garden, a jungle even... At night, except for the path illuminated by soft "mushroom lights", it's pitch black. All you can hear is the wind shaking the trees and the rain dropping on the roof of your...

Lovely little rustic chalets surrounded by trees. We spotted more birds here at breakfast than we did on the rest of the trip. There is a small forest and garden area you can walk around and they do a great little night walk to spot frogs. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast is really good...

Great location for short drives to attractions, La Fortuna, Arenal hiking trails. There is a grocery store at the top of the street for water, snacks, etc. Unpaved but smooth road to the entrance, less than 5 minutes from the main road, but the cabins are surrounded by trees putting you in the jungle. It has a very nice feel....

Real gem in lush greenery away from main road. We had spacious wooden house with the parking space next to it. Lots of space inside and great bathroom spacious enough for 2 people. Very quiet and peaceful place. Over breakfast (which is very good, with number of choices) you can observe numerous colourful birds which are attracted by the fruits,...

It was a simple bungalow completely surrounded by jungle. It suited our needs. The lighting in the place could be better. We had to get the overhead fan/light mended, as you couldn't turn the light off at night without the fan going off as well. With no air conditioning, the fan was definitely needed in the night. The open breakfast...
