Balcón del Bosque Lluvioso (Balcony of the Rain Forest) is a charming 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage located on the edge of one of Costa Rica’s most prized rainforests.

It sits at an elevation of approximately 2100 feet (700m) with stunning views overlooking Arenal Volcano
and Costa Rica’s largest lake- Lake Arenal. The setting, although on the edge of the rainforest, is the small mountain village of El Castillo which offers an abundance of tranquility & just enough connectivity to dispel isolation.

The space
The lower level comprises a full-sized fully equipped kitchen, glass enclosed living & dining room
leading to the lush, colorful, exotic gardens via the outside terrace.

The upper level comprises 2 bedrooms suites with a wrap around balcony offering spectacular views of Arenal Volcano, Lake and the rainforest.

Guest access
Guest will have access to the whole house including the laundry area, the tropical garden & private parking.
I would say that the best part of this home is the wrap around balcony and it's incredible views.

Other things to note
The watet here in El Castillo is Mountain Spring Water!!! Which is really good drinking water striaght from the tap. There are 2 small markets in El Castillo and I would recommend doing your shopping in La Fortuna, or ATM and gas stations.
In the village you will find a variety of restaurants to choice from.
Any type of car or 2 wheel vehicle can reach the village of El Castillo.
And for those with out transportation there is a public bus that travels from La Fortuna to El Castillo and I offer motorcycle rentals as well and there is a private shuttle that operates 3 times a day.

Location

El Castillo, Provincia de Alajuela, Costa Rica

This little village captured my heart and the hearts of many of my neighbors. It's the atmosphere of the Volcano, the jungle, the Lake and it's wildlife, lots of wildlife. Within my 10 years living here I have experience many NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC scenes with my own 2 eyes.
