      Farm Stay is a idea of mine to let the public see how a organic farm can work. We have designed and built a naturally balanced eco system that feeds itself and us. The property is a natural rain forest paradise that sits on a lush 8 acrs., that over looks the lake of Arenal. We made a dam at the top of the property were the water flows on its own to all parts of the farm. With all that water we planted banana trees, fruit trees, and fenced in the pastures for the cows. We made fish ponds, that are now filled with enough fish to feed many people. Every day is something new here at the farm Stay!

        The Space• Nepenthe Bed and Breakfast is Beautiful piece of paradise located in the little town of El Castillo of La Fortuna in Costa Rica. We are 35 minutes traveling west from La Fortuna downtown. Surrounded by the magical rain forest and exotic wild life (like howler monkeys and toucans) you can appreciate the magnificent Arenal Volcano and the Arenal Lake, enjoy beautiful sunsets from our infinity edge pool or relax in the Jacuzzi or with a Massage in The Blue Lagoon Spa. ** An advice: because of our location a bit remote up in the hills, renting a car is recommended (a 4WD will be better) as activities and scenic attractions are spread out. This is cheaper in comparison with pay taxi to go to restaurants, attractions or transport from the airport. ** The Phoenix Restaurante is located on the grounds of Nepenthe and offer a variety of national and international dishes. Amenities: • Spring feed swimming pool • Jacuzzi • Blue Lagoon Spa • The Phoenix Restaurant • Free Wi-Fi Connection

Otherwise, most guests reach us by car, private driver or taxi. Other Things to NoteIn 2004, the Sostheim family bought 400 acres (162 hectares) and chose the name Rancho Margot, in honor of Juan Sostheim’s mother. At that time, the valley was an over-grazed cattle ranch, barren of trees and wildlife. Today, thanks to reforestation and efforts to propagate indigenous species of plants, the Ranch is alive and teeming with hummingbirds, butterflies and is home to one of the largest varieties and densities of birds in Costa Rica. At Rancho Margot, we recognize that education is the key to progress. By preserving and expanding the rainforest, we live what we teach everyday. At Rancho Margot, students in our Eco-Literacy Program, guests, volunteers, residents and staff are constantly planting. In sync with the seasons and our changing environment, we continue to paint on an ever-changing living canvas. We especially enjoy experiencing this landscape through the eyes of our returning guests who come back year after year to experience our growth…and to renew.

        The SpaceThis is a standard version of the hike, individual needs are met always when possible. See all photos for better understanding. Day one Early afternoon meet your guide in El Castillo, take off for base camp "A", 2 - 3 hour hike, to have dinner and to spend the night there. Day two After breakfast take off with your guide for on average 6 h hike to cross the mountains over to base camp "B" for lunch. The Big Forest Hike ends there after the lunch. The base camp "B" is located four hours hiking distance from Santa Elena, Monteverde and travelers generally complete the distance on their own without any guide but they can hire one or a horse back if they wish when they are there. Guest AccessThe trail in between the camp "A" and "B" is the main reason why to do this tour. It goes through isolated mountain ranges where rapid changes in temperature, rains and land slides are the norm. It is a dangerous trip because of that and we recommended for experienced hikers in wilderness only. Humidity, mud, exertion make some to turn around and come back. People love it because of that, the landscapes and the connection with the "beast" are priceless. The connections to both base camps is over a forest and gravel roads which some enjoy some prefer to take a cab or hire a horse back where convenient. Both base camps are rustic subsistence farms. Interaction with GuestsTravelers are guided by our English speaking guide from the pick up day one to the lunch on day two. He will also see that your needs are met for getting to Monteverde from the base camp "B" whether you decide to hire a horse or decide to walk. The NeighborhoodThe forest is full of surprises and mystery. I encourage our clients to be instinctive about what they see, hear and think. I love to think that I too am a members of this mysterious and surprising force of Life. If you manage to check in early afternoon I recommend to visit incredible waterfall close by the camp "A". Getting AroundTo get to La Gavilana Hrbs & Art take a gravel road to Parque Nacional Volcan Arenal between La Fortuna and Nuevo Arenal. 4x4 is strongly recommended. Aprox. 7 km after the park entrance lays El Castillo. Once there take left and drive some 800 m passing Ecozoo, Butterfly Conservatory, and Essence Arenal Backpackers Resort after which you take right. There is public La Fortuna to Castillo shuttle as well as Monteverde to Fortuna or Castillo shuttle available in case you have a car to go back to. Other Things to NoteThis forest activity is very special. If you are not ready to face the quirks of the weather, insects, mud, rain and rough hiking crossing streams, and also camping style housing or campesino wood stove cooked diet, we will recommend a different tour for you.
