El Árbol (the tree)

Vacation house rental.
Fascinating jungle experience in the middle of the Caribbean rainforest of Costa Rica! Our 2 distinguished rental houses on 16+ acres of private property is situated in the Gandoca Manzanillo wildlife refuge, with the beautiful Caribbean sea less then 2 miles away. You will stay in one of our super cool designed, fully equipped houses on stilts.

Experience the jungle like never before. Have the monkeys waiting outside your window as you wake up to the sounds of tropical birds singing (more than 100 species counted on our property).
There are sloths, nosebears, other mammals, frogs, and so much more…

Relax in the Costa Rican rain forest, drinking a good bottle of wine on your jungle porch. Have a massage, walk our private nature tracks or relax at the creek that runs through the property. Go on...

Everything about this place is amazing. The hosts, the location, the jungle, etc. Just minutes away from the beautifull manzanillo beach. We had a blast! From san jose airport we took a taxi (200$)(we arrived at night time). The host were put to great us at 3aM! We had a wonderfull night sleep and woke up to the sound of the birds and monkeys. We went to manzanillo beach to have a swim in the warm ocean. Then, about 15 minutes walk from the house, we rented bikes (about 5$ a day). We went to get fresh food everyday while we visited the coast.
The house was simply perfect even on the rainy day.
If i had to give a critic about something, it would be that the two houses of elArbol are really close (but still really intimate) and that the tub takes a while to fill up (but its not like youre in a hurry when you take a vacation in the jungle!).
I would recommand it 100%!
