The SpaceThey have a common saying in Costa Rica.. "Pura Vida!" ( it means pure life) and a stay at Encantada Guest House is.. Pura Vida!
This cheerfully decorated 2+ Bedroom home, has large picture windows, filled to the brim with breath taking views! As well as a large Fully Equipped Kitchen, Sun Room with TV & Internet, Computer Work Space, 2 Covered Patios, A Great Covered Garden Terrace, with Awesome Views of Lake Arenal and it is all surrounded by Lush Tropical Gardens, filled with Exotic Flowers, Fruits, Birds, Butterflies, Toucans and even Monkeys!
Just imagine...You are here and spending every morning, sipping a steamy cuppa Joe, in a Front Porch Rocking Chair or Swaying Gently in a Cozy Hammock, while listening to the Amazing Sounds of the nearby Rain Forest Jungle, waking up to greet the sun, You are more relaxed than you have been in months, and contemplating the wonderful Adventures that lie ahead in your Fun Filled day! And later, when you have returned home exhausted and finally get settled into your comfy bed, Imagine being lulled into a deep blissful sleep by the soft thunder of rushing water and the ever so gentle song of the night, sung by Red Eyed Tree frogs and Wiley geckos, The smell of Jasmine is wafting on the cool night air.. Hmmm...
This is Pura Vida!
