Welcome to newly built lodge & retreat center Living Forest, where you wake up to the sound of a river and jungle with tropical birds and monkeys often in sight. The location is secluded, yet you can easily drive to amazing sights by Lake Arenal. A beautiful double room in the casita has a large king size bed. (If you prefer separate single beds let us know.) The bathroom has one wall open to the garden. In front of the casita you can sit on the veranda enjoying the jungle and river sounds and see wildlife just in front of you. This is a peaceful location where you can feel being totally in the nature yet within an easy drive to amenities.

About the neighbourhood
Living Forest is secluded in magical, tranquil and lush nature half way between Tilaran and Nuevo Arenal. You can easily drive to amazing sights and activities, such as Volcano Arenal, hot springs, zip lining and waterfalls. Lake Arenal has many water sport possibilities and we get many wind and kite surfers in the area, specially November - April. We are only 5-10 min drive from a wind and kite surfing site. We have some great restaurants and cafes just a short drive away. You can always enjoy the beautiful lake views when driving around and in clear days the volcano shows up in its majesty. The local little villages and green lush nature with an abundance of wild life make this area a special, friendly and relaxing travel destination.
