This property, once featured in the German travel guide for Costa Rica, is ideal for tourism, eco-tourism, residential development or a private paradise. It is located on the north side of the lake between Arenal Volcano and the town of Nuevo Arenal. A paved driveway climbs briefly from the tourism-heavy lake highway into the jungled setting. Three captivating cabins - rustic in appearance but with new and modern appointments- are distributed in the forested lower 6 acres of the nearly 10-acre property along with an entertainment rancho, a large cleared building site for a full-size home above the cabins, and a substantial chicken coop. The 4+ acres above the cabin development are only partly wooded and have broad unrestricted vistas of the lake and some views of Arenal Volcano. The property has been legally segregated into the 6+ -acre heavily forested lower section, and three parcels of about 1.25 acres each in the upper section. Thus a buyer could decide which of these four parcels to keep and which to sell, if any. In addition to the original forest, the owner enriched the area with many plants and trees that do even more to attract many varieties of birds as well as monkeys, sloths and other wildlife. There are 28 varieties of fruit trees and a small teak forest for future harvest.

The long house site has really good views of Lake Arenal.
The large building site above the 3 cabins has this as well as other vistas of Lake Arenal. On this beautiful site (see other photo of it below) a new owner could build a beautiful home while also maintaining an eco-tourism business in the cabins in the forested acres below. Further, the volcano-view parcels above, already legally segregated, could be sold or further developed. The property has electricity, water, telephone lines, and Internet. There are streams on both the north and south boundaries of the property.
Entrance to the complex, thickly forested property is a concrete drive from the main lake highway between the dam and Nuevo Arenal. This appealingly rustic but modern cabin is one of three on the lower , jungled art of the property.
