We stayed 3 nights at RANCHO CERRO AZUL & loved it.
From the first view inside the cabin to our last home cooked breakfast- it was a delight.
Alvaro Aragon & his wife Lorena are delightful.
Our cabin number number 1- had a multitude of birds out at the back by the patio. ( there are only 4 cabins) We spent hours sitting out there enjoying a cool drink which we were able to keep in the rooms small fridge.
Alvaro was able to recommend good local restaurants where we were able to eat typical Tico food with the locals.
Breakfast was worth the extra $5 each. Home cooking at it's best. It was our first taste of Gallo Pinto & we have been ruined. Nowhere else has matched the flavour yet & we have been looking for 2 weeks!!!
Alvaro is able to converse in English, however his wife & daughter's English is on a par with our Spanish- not great. We did manage to express our thoughts on Lorraino's cooking however.
We did struggle a little to locate CERRO AZUL. Signage is not great!! From Arenal it's right at the junction where the one way part of the road begins. Follow this road over 2 small bridges. Turn right onto a concrete paved road with signs for Cataratas Fortuna. (waterfall) The cabins are on the left up the road.
From San Carlos it's turn left when the one way changes to 2 lanes.
