2016_11_leaveslizards-93 Comfortable, well equipped cabins, perched on hills, offer a tree house feeling and have spectacular, panoramic views of the Arenal Volcano and surrounding mountains. All lodging options have a similar view of impressive Arenal. Private Deluxe cabins are crafted from nine types of tropical hardwoods, harvested using environmentally responsible methods.

They are a 5 -8 minute walk from the Lava Lizard Restaurant where guests are welcome to use the phone for local calls and free high speed WiFi.

The Heliconia H2016_11_leaveslizards-5-2ouse is next to reception and the barn area and has all the amenities noted above as well as air conditioning.

The Hummingbird Hacienda is situated on a private hill at the back of the property, offering guests the ultimate in privacy and deluxe accommodations.

Lodging options are beautifully landscaped, teeming with birds, butterflies and other wildlife. In keeping with our retreat atmosphere, we ask for a 3 night minimum stay. Thanks for your understanding.
