El Arbol is a gem. If what you are hoping for is a relaxing stay surrounded by the sounds and views of the jungle, then you will find it here. In the first 30mins of our stay, we spied some gorgeous blue morpho butterflies, a gecko and an Agouti! The house is located in Manzanillo, a sleepy beach town with a gorgeous strip of golden sand. We spent many hours on this beach and it took less then 20 mins to walk there from the house. The kitchen is fully equipped to make meals at home, if you so wish, so we stocked up on groceries at El Duende Gourmet Grocery store in Punta Uva (less than a 10mins drive away) and made most of our meals at El Arbol. What I can't stop raving about however, is the bed at El Arbol. I slept as soundly as I do in my own home, and that is a true testament of comfort while travelling. Jan and Marjolein were very welcoming from the very start and we cannot thank them enough for making our trip to Costa Rica so memorable. Thank you both!
