RainforestThe rainforest will surround you from the moment you arrive. You go to bed with the sounds of the jungle and wake up with the orchestra of bird sounds and the howling of the monkeys. Still there is much to be learned about the rain forest. A guided tour with one of our experienced and qualified nature guides is a beautiful experience. The accent can be on general flora & fauna, birds or medicinal plants.
BeachesThe Caribbean side of Costa Rica boasts some of the most picture perfect beautiful beaches in the country. Manzanillo beach, (5 min away, long partly deserted white sandy beach.) Punta Uva beach, (white sand, palm fringed, awarded beach.) Playa Cocles, (surf beach.) Playa Chiquita, (surf & quiet beach.) Salsa Brava, (famous salsa brava wave.) Playa Negra, (amazing black sand beach in Puerto Viejo.) beautiful white & black sandy beaches in Cahuita.
Although we do not serve meals at el Arbol we do provide you with a fully equipped kitchen. The fridge contains drinks and snacks. But you are more than welcome to stock up yourself. There are little supermarkets close by and they are open year round, until late.
There are great breakfast and lunch cafes, restaurants and a nice bar in nearby Manzanillo. To name a few: for breakfast go to one of the many local soda's, get the real Caribbean food & vibe in Maxi’s or go for fantastic Argentinean food to El Refugio.
There are many other restaurants, bars and other entertainment along the road between Manzanillo and Puerto Viejo. Something for every taste!
