THE ARENAL REGION AND LOCAL ACIVITIES:
The region of Arenal, Costa Rica centers itself around Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano. Located approximately 14 miles outside of La Fortuna, a popular tourist town, the charming Village of El Castillo awaits you with everything you need to enjoy luxury and relaxation and still see the "real" Costa Rica. Although tucked away and private, Castillo is also home to The Butterfly Conservatory, Snake Zoo, The National Park Arenal 1968, and a diverse selection of restaurants.

There are horseback tours to scenic waterfalls, or kayaking on the lake. There are also repelling and many organized nature hikes and tours that center around the volcano. If you like to push yourself, there are also off road bicycle tours in the hills around El Castillo as well as guided hiking tours through the rain forest. In and on the way to La Fortuna you can find White Water Rafting, a number of hot springs pools facilities, ATV tours, and many other adventures.
After your exciting days of adventure you can leave the fast pace of tourism and go back to your home in El Castillo, traveling through tunnels of rain forest and the beautiful countryside in and around the beautiful village of El Castillo. There you can relax and listen to the Howler Monkeys and enjoy a leisurely dinner and sit outside (or inside) and enjoy the pleasant breezes all the while relaxing in a tropical forest, enjoying the wonderful view, the wildlife and the quiet country atmosphere.
After a wonderful night's sleep in the comfort of custom made beds and orthopedic mattresses, you will awaken to the singing of hundreds of different species of birds and in the background, the howler monkeys sing their own morning song. Just a short walk across the street you will find a beautiful river for your swimming enjoyment and there are several local waterfalls that can be accessed by horse or hike A bird watchers' paradise and a relaxing retreat for nature lovers young and old.
