Loved the surroundings. Rising to the cockatoos and the Howler monkeys. Great energy amidst pura vida

Could relax forever on the hammocks and read the vast array of yogic and range of books. Helen is very kind and caring and helped us a great deal. We all enjoyed ourselves and the walks and lake was very interesting. Helpful to have a car.

Perfect for a yoga retreat.

We stayed here for yhree nights and it is a very romantic small place with a relaxing porch and a private garden. The rooms were farly clean,but dusty. And there were too many insects out at night that forced us too retreat from the porch, when the sun went down. Helena is a great hostess that helps you with everything:) We thought this location too far away from things, 40 min to 2 hour drives one way, but if you do not mind that, I will recommend this place.

There are two Sabalitos in Costa Rica. We are in the North by Lake Arenal.<BR>From Liberia Airport(LIR) to Sabalito<BR><BR>Follow the airport road to the main road.
