What an amazing place this was! We rented a cabin here for two nights in Feb. 2012 and we wanted to stay longer. The cabins were adorable and clean. There were 5 of us and we had a two bedroom cabin with a bathroom, kitchen, living room and back patio that faced the river. we each paid $10 a night! There was a little hammock set up on the patio. By our surprise there was a TV. We never tuned it on though. There was a $2 Tico breakfast. The owner and his wife cook every morning and they are lovely people. You could also get internet if you sat on or near their patio. The owner periodically would grab his binoculars and show us 4ft Iguanas that were high up in the trees as well as sloths. The property is simple and quaint. You really get a feel of the Pura Vida life style here. La Fortuna Falls is hiking distance up the road and is gorgeous! We swam and were able to get behind the falls. You can also zip line up there. It's quiet and not super crowded. There is a small river that runs off La Fortuna Falls and comes on the backside of the property from the cabins. We met Jonny and Sofia who run Paradise Adventures (PACR) from one of the cabins on the property. They set up a zip line for us in Arenal for $75 each! It was amazing with views of the Volcano and Lake Arenal! This Zip line is the same Co. that has a Zip Line in Monte Verde. Jonny and Sofia were so helpful. They also told us about white water rafting tours for $75 that includes and organic lunch on a farm. Needless to say we had such an amazing time here! Town is only a mile away and has a lot to offer as well. There are inexpensive Sodas (little eateries) and a lot of awesome Costa Rican food! Cabinas La Catarata was a slice of heaven!
