A peaceful, small paradise in the heart of Central America which captivates all visitors.

This pristine natural environment lies between two oceans and is nothing less than impressive.  It´s stable economy, and politics without military force convinced us many years ago to settle in the hilly area around Lake Arenal.  Even today, the mild climate and indescribable friendliness of the people charm all visitors to the area.

Our team, would love to host you at Surf & Reit Chalets!

National parks comprise more than a quarter of the country and are protected areas.  Eight hundred bird-species, hundred of mammal-species, almost 400 reptile-species and thousands of plant species, including thousands of orchids, live in different climate zones.  This is also home to numerous species of trees and colourful butterflies which can be seen fluttering  past.  Costa Rica is a paradise for butterfly enthusiasts as well as ornithologists.  Directly behind our chalets is the Tenorio Volcano National Park, a delight for plant and animal lovers alike.

Our small estate in Costa Rica is approximately 3 hectares in size.  Amongst other creatures, one can see howler monkeys at the doorstep, toucans so close you could almost touch them as well as a wide variety of tropical fauna and flora.  The climate is pleasant and the temperatures couldn’t be better.  Rain showers are part of daily life throughout  the year and even though February is a very dry month, one should rather take rain gear with on longer outings. 
A garage is available for all guests with a hire car.
We‘d like to make your visit as pleasant as possible and hope you have fun during your stay at the Surf and Riding Chalets.

We have enough space in our amiable, little houses for 2 to 4 (5) guests.  All bungalows have a toilet, shower and fully equipped kitchen.  The view from the window and terrace is of the wonderful landscape around Lake Arenal.  On our property we have horses, which guests and friends can use for  trips to the nearby lake or jungle.  The surrounding area can also be explored on foot.  The village of Rio Piedras is a short walk away and there basic requirements can be bought in the Pulperias (small supermarket).   There are also three small Sodas, where breakfast or lunch can be enjoyed.  Guests also have the option of preparing meals themselves in the chalets - a small, fully equipped house is there to cater to all needs!
