Villa Decary

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Hotel Villa Decary Bed & Breakfast overlooks the beautiful, pristine Lake Arenal and Costa Rica’s Tilaran mountains. Costa Rica’s Lake Arenal region is a remote, uncrowded area of Costa Rica – at 1,800 feet in elevation, the area boasts a unique temperate climate, with cool nights and warm days.

The property is surrounded by a middle-elevation tropical rainforest, including lush plant life, a rainbow of butterflies, over two hundred and fifty bird species. You’ll also find troupes of shy howler monkies.

Hotel Villa Decary is American owned and operated, and is a relaxing and affordable escape on a lush Costa Rica hillside, surrounded by a botanical garden of exotic tropical plants and palm trees. We’re close to the small Tico town of Nuevo Arenal, and just fourteen miles from the active Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs.

Each of our oversized rooms has a private entry ensuite tiled bathroom with shower, built to American standards. Our guest rooms are colorfully decorated with stunning fabrics from Guatemala and local art made by the Chorotega Indians, which complements the workmanship of local Costa Rican artisans who have made our fine wooden doors and furnitures.

We also offer 3 separate casitas, each with a kitchen, perfect for families, bird-watchers, larger groups and honeymooning couples. Each room also has a private balcony and wonderful views overlooking Lake Arenal, the rainforest and the mountains.

The Hotel Villa Decary is a Costa Rican bed and breakfast hotel, and we offer fantastic, relaxed breakfasts which our prior guests often rave about.

The property has some quiet walking trails where you can view our large collection of tropical plants and get assimilated to the rainforest environment. There’s also lts of local wildlife, including nesting turkeys, Red-Eyed Tree Frogs, the elusive White-collared Manakin or the distinctive Yellow-throated Euphonia. We have binoculars and Costa Rican birding books available for guest use.

If you’re coming to Costa Rica in the near future, consider Lake Arenal – a perfectly peaceful, relaxing escape between the bustling tourist towns of La Fortuna at the Arenal Volcano, and Santa Elena, site of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve.

We’d love to meet you and show you what Costa Rica is all about at our rainforest retreat on Lake Arenal, Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

Dolly Travels: Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Author: , March 16th, 2012

Rincon de la ViejaOur dear friend, Bella (Dolly Goolsby) is on the go again, this time in Costa Rica. She has graciously allowed us to republish her travel blogs. Enjoy!

!Hola!. Here I am again! Time is going by so fast. Before I write another post, I suppose you know by now, I need a proof reader. One sentence in the last post came out as ” trees now have other plants growing on them” or something similar.

But that is not what I meant to say. In the RAIN forest, trees have other plants growing on them, as they are all crowded together and competing for sunlight. But in the Tropical Dry Forest, trees are further apart, and no plants need to grow onto the trees; they have room enough for everyone to have their own space. Please forgive any other typos, as I know there are a few.

Now that I have clarified that, I can proceed to our busy day in Guanacasta province. Our lodge was up pretty high in the mountains above Liberia, and we could see the volcano, Rincon de la Vieja. It was very windy so zip lining got postponed until afternoon. Instead of going on the zip line, we got onto saddle horses, and took a ride down some trails, ending at a natural hot spring with hot mud baths, thanks to the volcano. That was fun.
