Beautiful views; awesome house
Casa Natural View is in a great location to visit Rio Celeste, Llanos del Cortes, and the hot springs in the area. Our family of five (including three young adults) was very comfortable at Marlon's home. The home is clean, well equipped, and he told us to help ourselves to the cereal, coffee, spices . . . The views from the wrap around porch are amazing. We sat for hours looking at the birds coming to visit his large feeder all against a volcano backdrop. Marlon has landscaped the property to shield out the road and all neighbors though you can hear the cows and chickens next door which adds to the charm of the home. He is very helpful in suggesting things to do and providing a guide service if requested. Rio Celeste is a must see. We went to the hot springs in the area and paid around $7 USD pp instead of the $30-$50 pp around Arenal. Walked the trails at Casa Tenorio just up the road from Marlon's place and saw four sloths.
