The space

Ideal for groups up to 22 people or couples, this is an adventurous and also social experience of living virtually in the jungle. Relax on the balcony overlooking the Arenal Volcano and the rain-forest. Observe up to 300 species of birds and other wildlife. Private and exclusive yet easy access to La Fortuna in 12 minutes, an excellent location.

We offer local authentic family style food by prior arrangement. We can organize transport, laundry and a range of interesting tours and activities, better discussed here as there are many other options than what you see on the internet.

The common areas, including the kitchen are shared when other guests are on the premises.

La Fortuna de San Carlos is at the center of an array of geological wonders. The nearby Arenal is Costa Rica's most active volcano, routinely bursting with lava and ash, and the Catarata de La Fortuna is a waterfall pouring from a seventy-meter cliff. The Tabacon Hot Springs are a relaxing intermission in the midst of the various spectacles, and the Leaves and Lizards Arenal Volcano Cabin Retreat is a blissful end to any day's excursion.

It is advisable to bring a torch for navigating the paths after dark and a map of the local area for navigation.

Beautifully place. Very good service. Nice rooms. Great for a big group. The only problem is that the pool is far from the rooms and the access is very very difficult

Response from Jonathan:
Access to both pools is a little way from the Ecolodge but not difficult ... One of the pools needs some attention due any day now , but the water is Spring fed , no chemicals and normally clean.. Sorry if it was a bit dirty, leaves can fall (Website hidden by Airbnb) is almost in the jungle but theres a good inlet and outlet ,ie good flow of water , normally .. Thanks for coming ... All the best Jonathan

Jonathan was very responsive, as was William (his house manager). The place looks like the pictures: very picturesque, multi-level building, and really lovely. After a hot day of hiking around Arenal, it was a tired backpacker's dream to return to.
