Lake Arenal, Costa Rica, real estate for sale
A81 A fantasyland of 28 acres between village and volcano - $566,500
Located about 4 miles southwest of Arenal Volcano between two river valleys, this is a visually thrilling property filling both days and nights with dramatic vistas. Slightly farther to the southwest is the village of El Castillo. The owners fell in love with this foothill acreage several years ago, but economic conditions in the United States ruined their plans to build a home here. Thus someone else will have the opportunity to enjoy the fabulous views of Arenal Volcano, its shorter companion Cerro Chato, 24-mile-long Lake Arenal, the thick neighboring forests of Arenal National Park, and the complex velvety terrain surrounding this former ranch. Two rural roads reach the property, one of them climbing the hills above Linda Vista Del Norte Hotel to enter the acreage from the north, the other climbing through the village of El Castillo and then turning east to form the southern boundary of the ranch. The town of La Fortuna is about 30 minutes away and in between are many hotels and hot springs, such as the famous Tabacon, which is about 20 minutes distant. On this road rimming the southern end of Lake Arenal are a few hotels, including the famous Arenal Observatory Lodge. There is also Sky Tram, a tourist favorite at Arenal Volcano. Light and weather play constantly with Arenal Volcano, making it an always fascinating sight except when the clouds decide to completely blanket the mountain. After dark, streams of lava can be seen pouring far down the southwest side of the mountain in brilliant molten streaks. The rivers Piedras Negras and Los Aguas Gatos flow in valleys on either side of the property.
