About the neighbourhood
Costa Rica's Northern Zone is an emerald green oasis of mountains and incredible beauty. This is where you will find Lake Arenal, a 25 kilometer long man-made lake, that is hard to beat, for sheer beauty and pristine water sports as it majestically mirrors the simmering Arenal Volcano. Arenal, offers all the best that Costa Rica has to give, from Adventure Activities to Hot Springs and abundant Wildlife. The nearby village of El Castillo, has a variety of Activities, Restaurants and small markets.
Getting around
Renting a 4x4 SUV is Necessary In this Area for the best experience. I can personally recommend a Great Car Rental Agency

Lake Arenal is located approximately 3.5 hours drive from either the San Jose or Liberia International Airports. The Arenal area is very easy to access via Route142 and the Drive is Stunningly Beautiful. A 4x4 SUV or a high clearance vehicle is strongly recommended for this area, including for access to El Castillo and Our own little cow path to paradise!.
