          After a couple of trips to Costa Rica, I was determined to go to Arenal. Flying blind on the internet I booked a cute place consisting of perhaps 20 casitas, a pool, and supposedly a grand view of Volcan Arenal. We never saw it. Rain,...More

          Hello, I am having a hard time finding contact information for this hotel. We would like to know if you have availability for two adults 12/25-12/29 or 12/26-12/30. We would prefer 2 beds, but are open to one king bed if that is what is available. We are looking forward to hearing from you. Rachel
