          From Guanacaste to Arenal Lodge is easy to make it with a car rental. Also you can try with interbus.

          Hi there - Does anyone know of a working number for the lodge. I've tried both the numbers on their website and the number listed on Trip Advisor but all say they are out of order. I am trying to inquire about reservations, and can't find a way to reach them.
