4 Days Relax and Breathe Retreat in Costa Rica
We were a group of four traveling by van. They let us park the van and use electricity for 20$ for 2 nights. My sister and her boyfriend slept in the van and my boyfriend and I rent a tent. It was very clean and comfortable. The hostel is very well located. You have a view on both the lake and the volcano. The little farm is amazing. There are little trails you can take to see a lot of plants and flowers. You can also hear howler monkeys (maybe if you're luckier than us you could also get to see them!). There's a hot tub on the patio and it's very clean also. We had breakfast one morning and it was very typical and delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful time there and warmly recommend it :)
If you don’t like tourist places like la fortuna, El Castillo and essence Arenal is the place for You. Staff was heartwarming and we felt like home after minutes. Veggie food available and yummy. View is incredible! Highly recommended
